“Best food in the county”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Have eaten here twice and have twice come away amazed. The dinners were exquisitely done. Seafood was obviously fresh and very tasty. The homemade linguine is outstanding. Great service and value. A hidden gem.

“Another delicious meal”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Another dinner here did not disappoint. Salads good & again oak grilled artichoke delicious.
One of our group had Arturos pasta special- shrimp with lots of garlic, anchovies & bread crumbs on linguini. Said very good.
# of us had grilled petralel sole- I asked if kitchen could do lemon & capers on mine & got a quick answer- Of courser. Came out delicious! Blackened fish also a hit.
Wine list good value & have full bar.
Service friendly & quick.
Support this local place. Will go back.

In this area a good authentic Italian restaurant! Fresh fish, homemade linguini. You could pay more but why. Truly a pleasant surprise.

“Lovely dinner!!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Hope this restaurant makes it in Watsonville. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner here, and even though it may seem a tad pricey for W'ville, I do hope it can make a go of it. It's a lovely dining room, service was great, food was delicious. Win/win/win! :)

“Try it.”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

We went here on a Saturday night. The wood fired artichoke was delicious (appetizer, but I had in place of salad) Served with smear of pesto & another sauce. Perfect starter. Husband had spinach salad & dressing very good.
Cioppino was delicious. Sauce not to tomatoey or acidic. Served with yummy cheese bread.
Crab raviolis good, too. Serving of pastas tend to be very large- too much really. Good dish to share or take some home.
Wine list reasonable with Chalone Chardonnay $30.00.
Please try this place. wasn't very crowded & let's keep them in business.
Décor simple , but clean. Go for the food, not the ambiance.
Nice to have a change in Watsonville.
