Excellent food and friendly service. We've visited Cafe Della Via 3 times and have enjoyed each experience. I can't help but notice dishes being served to other patrons, and I have to ask the waiter "What order is that?" And after an explanation I make a note to order it on the next visit. The Spaghetti & Meatballs is a... More

Cayucos is a rather sleepy beach town, and I expected a "beach fare" restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised by this Italian restaurant. The service was attentive, the wine good and reasonable, and the food delicious. I had the chicken Parmesan, and my husband had the chicken Masala ... Both were good, but I think the Masala was probably even better... More

This restaurant can be very busy on weekends but it serves excellent Italian cuisine. We visit Cayucos often and eat here every time.

We've eaten there several times and tried many different entrees. And there is a good but not too large selection of wines. We seem to always choose Chianti.

On recommendation of our host we eated here. We ordered a antipasta salad and a pizza arabiata. And I must say both were delicious. It is a small restaurant. The service is good. I can recommand this place.

Ate here in August with my family, we were tired and hungry after an afternoon whale watching and this was just what we needed. The service was very friendly, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was lovely and busy. We all love Italian food and the quality was very high.

Delicious food and good wine selection at a great value, served by friendly, attentive staff. Yummy options for non meat eaters (especially tasty is their version of Eggplant Parmesan!), or ask your server about the pasta primavera if you're wanting light fare. It's always busy here, so unless you don't mind a crowd or chatter, get there before 6pm, or... More

This is a very popular usually crowded dinner place because the classical Italian food is very well prepared and served by attentive friendly servers. A little noisy for date night but just right for a small party of good friends out for a tasty meal and casual fellowship.

We eat here frequently. First let me say the wine list is awesome and nicely priced & the soups are always a sure thing. There's a reason you need to book a day ahead (especially during the summer) ~ the food is always delish! I usually frequent a restaurant because I like one or two items on the menu. Here... More
