We made a stop here and got lucky to grab a table on a very busy night. The service was very slow as they appeared short staffed but they were all very nice and smiled albeit our waitress appeared very flustered and stressed managing all her tables. We ordered mains and they took quite a while to arrive but the... More

We ate here twice on a previous trip, and were happy that it was still as good. The service was friendly with great bread and olive oil to dip it in. Nice house salad. This time we had the pizza and it was delicious.

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.
