The dining experience was spoiled by the incredibly poor service - one server brought a split-sized bottle of carbonated red wine in answer to a request for a glass of White Zinfandel while another server delivered an unopened bottle of beer with the inference that we should open the bottle ourselves! The location is good, however, with ocean views and the food, especially the halibut, was fully acceptable. The restaurant's decor is dull and could do with some livening up.

My Sicilian hubby declared the marinara and meatballs were as good as his mom's! I had portobello mushroom ravioli that was really wonderful. Good portions and prices.

This restaurant had a great view over looking Morro Bay. The service was great and the meal was cooked perfect. Their location is near a public stairway, that takes you down to the Boardwalk. Great way to walk off that tasty meal. There was also a bar and DJ music at this location.

We were a party of 8. Best thing I can now say about DiStasio's is the view. The food was so so and the service was guite slow and dis-organized. The restaurant was quiet (mid-week) and it seemed to take forever to get our food delivered. It appeared there was some kind of problem in the kitchen as some of our dishes were hand delivered by a person we didn't recognize and was wearing jeans and a work shirt, not our waitress. Also, the pizza ordered by one in our party was wrong and had to be returned for correction.

I had the chicken Alfredo, my husband had the sausage lasagna. Neither were anything spectacular, but neither were they bad. The only thing that was poor, was the bread; hard as a rock and crumbled to pieces all over the table. Definitely not freshly made. But the waitress was nice, view was beautiful, price was reasonable.
