Love the squid ink pasta and mussels! Caprese salad too. Friends came for first time and loved food especially minestrone soup
Love the Seafoods pasta special, shrimp is not miss by me, other shellfish are perfect. meat dishes are great as well
Super friendly staff that was very gracious trying accommodate my 2 year old son's picky eating. Very traditional Italian. Highly recommended.
I'm always happy to dine here for the food and the ambience.
Lago di Como is our favorite Italian restaurant in the Bay Area. This time I ordered a pizza Margherita and it was outstanding...just like in the Old Country.
I also enjoyed a glass of Cannonau di Sardenga (grenache) which was also wonderful.
Yar, I went there on, like, New Year's Eve, so I guess that's not really typical of the restaurant, right? It was kinda busy and kinda loud. The lights were a little bit high, and the ceiling is pretty high as well - so I wouldn't go there on a first date, or when intense romance is required. But the waiter was funny, and the food was nice, and we got a booking at a couple of hours notice, which was pretty cool for NYE.
Great dinner for New Years Eve. The burata, tomato and prosciutto appetizer is delicious. Great entree and many very good things to pick on the menu. We will definitely be back. Great neighborhood gem. Worth the drive as well.
Everything was wonderful thank you so much a great place to eat!!!
The proprietor/chef Giovanni welcomed us personally and helped us select his special scaloppini of pork. He also suggested we split the lovely tender calamari appetizer, which
is far more delicious than other restaurants fried calamari. The restaurant is smart to offer
Prosecco by the glass and also by the bottle.
We come for special occasions , but the menu includes pizzas for a more casual meal. The restaurant has a friendly vibe and warm ambiance that welcomes families and larger groups as well as couples. A winner!
One of the best dining experiences we've had here in Santa Cruz. It all began ei a table, ready, at our reservation time. Immediate seating. Prompt attention to our desires for beverage and appetizer. Served by expediters with accuracy and politeness. THe owner (I guess) stopped by for a brief chat a couple of times. The food - kids meals to the specials - wonderful! Not rushed to turn the table. THe whole evening was remarkable.
Christmas Eve dinner, service was good but way too fast, we were in and out in 45 minutes. My daughter enjoyed the ravioli but the other 4 of us thought the pasta sauce was very bland. My husband and I shared a salad and they just left us one bowl, no extra plate to share. They also overcharged us for corkage fees compared to what they quoted over the phone. We would not choose to eat here again, sorry.
One of the best restaurants in Santa Cruz. Service is impeccable and the food is delish. Would definitely go back again.
Giovanni is always so great to our family. The food is consistently yummy and we enjoy going back every time.
