When ordering pizza, keep in mind a $14 pepperoni pizza will feed two, hungry adult males. Nice, thin crust and flavorful. My only regret was not having a full dinner here. While waiting for our pizzas, I was lusting after each dish as it left the kitchen. Judging by the Friday night crowd, reservations are recommended. Great looking and reasonably... More

We had dinner from Cafe Della Via on our most recent trip to Cayucos. We had takeout because we had our dog with us and we took it back to our room. Food was excellent and service was great. We look forward sometime to be able to eat at the Cafe.

Yummy italian food to the last bite. Do not go to the restaurant if you don't like garlic. Sorry no photos as we were hungry

This place has been around a long time. This was our first visit, taking our family for a special occasion. It's a cute, nicely appointed little spot, which creates a bit of Italy for the senses. Frequented often by locals, it seemed lively. The dinner menu is a bit limited, with specialty pastas missing, but the food is nicely prepared... More

I have eaten here several times and the service and food are consistently excellent. As a single woman eating alone (with a good book), it's important to me to be well looked after, and they always do that. The eggplant parmigiana is wonderful.... better than my own! It can be a bit loud and crowded at peak times, so just... More

We always make reservations for this restaurant every time we visit Cayucos! We love the ambiance and the food! You may have to wait, even with a reservation, but it's well worth it! The place is small and quite busy, so I would recommend reservations a few days in advance.

This is one of the best places to dine in and around Morro Bay. It is busy, even in the winter. Be sure to reserve a table or take a chance on being disappointed. Excellent service, good food and priced very fairly.

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.

Made reservations for a group and someone called back when an earlier time that I requested opened up- much appreciated!! Cozy stone floor Italian restaurant- no one offered desserts but maybe we were in a hurry to get to some local CHristmas happenings.. but otherwise=... More
