This is a great Italian restaurant. The food is beautifully presented and as delicious as it is eye appealing. The service is warm and friendly, and the chef is very creative varying the menu regularly. We will return to this place whenever we are in the area.

I've been to Cecco twice now
I've been to Cecco twice now and have been delighted by the food and service both times. The pizza is fantastic and the short rib raviolis nearly took my breath away. Fantastic food, wonderful service - this is going to end up being one of my favorite spots in the Santa Ynez Valley!

Cecco's is a must!
Cecco's is an excellent restaurant with an experienced Italian chef! The service is perfect: warm and friendly yet efficient and discreet (they keep an eye on you but do not impose). The traditional Italian dishes are wonderfully made with fresh ingredients and there are special daily offerings as well. We started with tuna carpaccio, then a pizza from the wood burning oven..hot and beautifully puffed when it arrived at our table. The salad was fresh mesclun with cecci (garbanzo beans), onions and other veggies. The butterscotch panna cotta was a great variation on the traditional italian panna cotta. There is also outdoor dining under a lantern-lit pergola looking onto a charming courtyard.

Great Italian food in Solvang?
Yes! Everything we ordered was excellent, including the salads, calamari, steak, and chicken. The only possible problem was the height of the stool/chairs for three petite women. The one tall male had no problem and loved especially the red wine; even the house red was delicious.

Great Pizza and Pasta
The bolognese was amazing - so, so good. We also tried a funghi pizza and it was excellent.

Great food and service!
This place was recommended by a nearby winery. The food was delicious! I had the chicken which was moist and tendet. I told the waitress it was the best chicken ive ever had! The clams were out of this world. If they would just add linguine to them it woukd make an outrageous white clam sauce! I will visit Cecco again my next time in Solvang.

We dined before Fiddler Friday night. Our service was excellent, the food was very good except that the half chicken was undercooked. I was tempted to keep eating it because it tasted great....but there were some undercooked areas. The chicken was sent back and was taken off the bill. This won't keep me from trying again as it has been perfect in the past.

My guest and I shared a wonderful lunch at CECCO. Had been at wineries so only needed a light lunch. We sat outside, as did most other customers, due to the great weather. We shared the caprese salad and it was outstanding with perfectly ripened heirloom tomatoes, tasty cheese, fresh basil and high quality olive oil. We then shared the pizza pomodoro, and again were impressed by the quality of the tomatoes, as well as the very nicely done oven-baked thin crust. Didn't have enough servers, so some aspects of service were slow, but all in all, we enjoyed our experience.

Loved this place. Was in salvang for a play at the outdoor play house. Easy walking distance to the play house. Food and service was great. Sat outside. Very nice. Loved the tortellini stuffed with short rib. Great time. We will go back.

I must complrment the chief for making a pretty good Gluten Free Pizza, we gave him some hints on how to improve it and he was very understanding. We would like to thank George the manager and to Heather our server, they both did and outstanding job! We will definitely return with friends and clients in the future. Keep up the great job!

We love to split a salad and pizza on Friday night so this is our go to place. i love the decor and feel of italy. The wait staff is attentive and you do not feel as if you need to place a large order to get their attention. We will be back.

Great nite at Cecco
Again the crew at Cecco out did themselves by making gluten free flat bread, what a great place. Keep up the great job.

This place rocks, this time I brought 7 guests and George was cooking that night. All the food came out at the same time and was hot and so darn good! Monique was the server and did a great job, we had several Columbian guests in our group and see explained everything in Spanish and made some great recommendations.

George and Heather came through again by providing us with outstanding service and several great tasting pizzas, they made mine gluten free and I loved it. The chef/owner and all the staff go out of there way to make your dining experience one to remember. They have great wine selection and allow you to taste it to see if you agree with there recommendations.

Another A+ for Cecco
This time we had seven guests dinning with us and each walked away saying we shall return. There was a slight wine order mess up but it was corrected on the spot and made our outing a success?
