A word from Santa Lucia Cafe
Santa Lucia Cafe is the only place in the peninsula providing a German Cuisine with an Italian twist. Thin crusted pizzas baked in an oak wood fired brick oven are hard to find these days and Santa Lucia Cafe has definitely built its reputation for it over the past 15 years.
It has the best German beer selection on tap and authentic German & Italian home cooking with anything from Wiener Schnitzel or Sauerbraten (sweet & sour beef roast) with red cabbage or Potato Pancakes to traditional Italian dishes like Veal Picatta, Spinach Ravioli or Mom's Lasagna giving its menu a broad selection for everybody's liking.
Just a few blocks from the Monterey Marriott and Conference Center, Santa Lucia Cafe is the ideal venue for private parties, events, or a quiet dinner experience.

Diner Reviews
  • "Greeted by the genial owner/host with a smile and "welcome back" the five of us settled in for a relaxed dinner. Four of us chose from the german side of the menu and all of the schnitzel came with a pork or veal choice, pork was the winner. Schnitzel was crispy on the outside with or without sauce, very nice. House made beef sauerbraten is fork tender and very good. Each dinner came with soup or salad and it is worth the extra two bucks to get spaetzle instead of potatoes (hey, you can get mashed potatoes anywhere). One diner chose from the italian side of the menu and said Mom's Lasagna was very tasty. Wine by the glass is a generous pour and there are reasonable choices and beer on tap. None of us had room for desert."

  • "First time visit here at Santa Lucia did not disappoint. The schnitzel was tender, the side of red cabbage was succulent, and the mashed potatoes creamy and delicious! Try the apple strudel ala mode like I did or the bread pudding my wife ordered to round out a perfect meal. Oh, and the Spaten beer on tap delivered too! We'll be going back!"

  • "Good food, much too generous portions. Location is unfortunate. I imagine it might be busier during the work week. Very empty!!! They were setting up for breakfast before we left -- 9:15."
