Loved the brunch, not too busy! Will keep this in mind and i will be back!
Yummy drinks and great salad and pizzas. Perfect for a casual date night
Awesome made to order 12" pizza in a great spot at The Camp. Excellent salads too.
Went for Mothers day and we once again had great food & service. Chef even made the Basalmic Artichoke when not on the brunch menu - it was very much appreciated.
2nd time and it didn't disappoint. Try the artichoke appetizer with aioli . I am normally not one for artichoke but this is a really good dish
Love the fact that they offer 1/2 salads. Was able to have salad and share a pizza. Good service and nice outdoor patio
Always enjoy coming here. Our party got pizzas , pasta and a salad and everyone enjoyed. Their pizza crust is amazing!
They paired down the menu and took most of the best things off. At least the items that kept bringing us back. Now the menu is a little boring and not very impressive execution.
Service & food is always amazing!! One of our favorite spots to go
The pizza was really good and the atmosphere was good. It was super hard to find parking. If visiting SB again would stay downtown.
Dinner with family - this is my favorite place in oc for a casual dinner. It's also great for dates, but the family loves it, as well.
Great dinner. I've been coming here for years and hope to be coming here for many more to come.
Food was ok at best. Server was very, very nice but lingered a little longer than necessary at times. Drinks were wuite tasty.
My man and I wanted a cozy spot for our 1st Valentines together. This place was the perfect choice! The atmosphere is very comfortable, yes the noise level can be a tad loud but it didn't bother us at all. We started with the Calamari and oh my was it perfect! The breading was very light and the dipping sauce had a little kick to it, tossed in jalapeno peppers we were happy! A must try....Our Server Angel was on point! He was always prompt to make sure we were happy or if our drink needed refilling. Very kind and professional. Thank you Angel!!
The food here is amazing!!!
The pizza was amazing. It is wood fired, with thin chewy crust and inventive toppings. Hubby and I split the Ecco, which has mortadella, mushrooms and artichoke hearts. Delicious. Our friends split the Gorgonzola and pear pie. It was very good but very rich. The table split and arugula salad which was plenty for four. It was very difficult to talk as the noise level was deafening. It was 6:30 on a Friday night, so it might be better at a less busy time. I wouldn't go back when it is busy because if the din. The waitress, Sidney, was very attentive and knowledgeable.
The pizza is the best we have ever had, and we have had a lot of pizza! Authentic cuisine and the ambiance was cozy. Great for a night out with friends or for a date!
The facility is in an area reminiscent of the small business/food truck pods in Portland Oregon. Very laid back setting, some fantastic pizza ((go with the "Goomba Pizza") and really nice people working there. This place will give Mozza in Newport Beach a run for the money.
we were able to get in and out due to good service so we could also attend play and yet enjoy relaxed time eating. Food was good value and a younger crowd.
The cheese appreciate was good
Always a hit...never disappoints. Kristen provided wonderful service.
My girlfriend and I went here for a late night dinner. I heard good things about the place so we decided to go since we were nearby.
The atmosphere of the place was very lively and would be a great place for group dinners, but also would be great for dates because of its cozy atmosphere.
There is plenty of selection on the wine list. The beers on tap was limited, but they had other bottled and canned options. The good news is that the beers on tap are all top notch so you wont be disappointment.
The food was excellent. We started off with a prosciutto and cheese bruschetta. The prosciutto was perfect. It was thinly sliced and was had a very light salty taste which is hard to find in restaurants. For dinner, we both had pizzas and a side of sauteed mushrooms. The mushrooms were absolutely delicious. They were sauteed with a mix of truffle oil, wine, and herbs. They were done to perfection and highly recommended.
The lady ordered the guanciale pizza which she absolutely loved. The freshly made dough was fired to perfection. The pizza had a combination of great ingredients including bacon, pears, and mascarpone. I took a bite and it was great. I ended up getting the guido pizza and added prosciutto to it because I liked it that much. The fennel sauced, onions, and peppers were a perfect blend. Adding the prosciutto made it perfect.
My only complaint was the service. The host and hostess were extremely friendly and gave some great recommendations when I asked about the menu. It was considered light night from their experience, but our server was barely there. He was a nice gentleman, but it took over 15 minutes before we were able to place our order for drinks, another 10 to get the drinks (just one beer for myself), and to get the bill took another 10 minutes. I overheard two other groups make the complaints as well. Another larger group next to us received rather quick service from their waitress.
Overall, great food! Can't wait for Irvine to open up!
Great food, great service but a little pricier than a usual night out. We will be back but as a treat!
We like to sit outside under the heat lamps, it's a lot quieter out there than inside.
The food was beyond delicious! Great ambiance too.
We loved our appetizers, meatballs and calamari. Our flat bread pizzas were da bomb!
Great service, fast . We are going back a lot!
Food was very good as usual--our party ordered either pizza or manicotti.
Service was poor, with long waits to attract attention of our server. We've been here multiple times. We have had excellent service with the female servers. There is an older male waiter who has consistently offered poor service. This evening he got one of the drink orders (a glass of a red wine) wrong, bringing a white instead. It was over 10 minutes before he returned. In the meantime, he was not doing much of anything other than chatting occasionally with other customers. Ultimately, I had to ask the person who brought out our meal to inquire about the drink. He returned in about a minute with the proper drink. Later, our server came by, offering no apology but blaming the bartender for ignoring him.
I emailed the management after this experience but got no response.
Needless to say, I have been disappointed by both our dining experience and by the lack of response by the management.
My husband and I took our mothers for Christmas Eve dinner. It was lovely. Food was excellent, service was attentive, and we had a great time. Very efficient without being rushed.
Terrible food and mediocre service. I will never go back to this place.
A very quaint lunch spot. Looked like an amazing bar inside but I decided to eat outside in their patio. Food was excellent - enjoyed the pizza and side of veggies. My friend liked his salmon pasta dish. Parking is a challenge on Sunday but have patience and you will get lucky. It's worth it!
It was my first time sitting outside and I loved it. The setting is great and my food was delicious. No complaints here.
Great food with decent prices. Service was great. The interior decorations made it it a very pleasing evening that made you feel at home. Would recommend and go again!
Great environment but I had a really bad experience ... Food was not good at all. The pizza was was limp and wet and we weren't even able to pick it up to eat it. The whole food experience was awful ., I would never go back for the food, only for drinks.
We enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. I had read a few unflattering comments about the service and noise level, but we had wonderful service and were able to have a conversation easily. Loved the food, both salad and pizza. Wine selection and prices were fair.We will definitely be going back.
Stopped for a quick bite...but it wasn't quick. Shared a Caprese salad and veggie pizza. Both were just ok. Service was slow even though the restaurant was half empty. Overall noisy because of the cement floors and noise from the bar. Slightly overpriced for what you get. Not impressed.
We were on our way to a play and wanted to enjoy a delicious meal without pay a big price. Ecco was perfect. Lovely ambiance and nice menu. Helpful staff that was quick and courteous. We ordered their woodfire pizza and shared a salad. I also had a glass of their Sangria. I would go their again if i'm in the area.
This place is very loud - very difficult to talk, food is - lets say - everything has cheese in it.
So if you do not like cheese - probably not a good place.
Other that that - very tasty food and good service. A little bit expensive on wine, but you are here to eat - right?
Overall 4/5, sometimes too loud. Good for young people but likely would not bring my parents if they were in town.
Great food, great ambiance, great server. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience at ECCO and will go back.
