Cecco's has an outdoor patio away from the main street. The patio tables have tablecloths and dappled sunlight. We had a romantic, fun outdoor lunch of fabulous thin crust pizza and a chopped salad which was perfect. Wine was finishing touch. After our lunch, we...More

Food was fresh and tasty. Definitely hand-made. Service was good and they allow you to bring your own wine for a $15 corkage fee. The 19 year-old waiter did a very good job and was very attentive. I’d go again next time we’re passing through.

The sauce on my pancetta pasta was terrific. I had something similar the week before in Santa Barbara at another Italian restaurant and this was an order of magnitude better! Service excellent as well.
