For its size Caycos certainly offers a number of good restaurants but we found Cafe Della Via has the edge. Good Italian food served by staff who know how to deliver good service without a fuss.

I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent food. The strawberry spinach salad, pizza, and fish is all amazing. Good wine and beer list as well. Family friendly to boot!

We ate here two nights, we loved it so much the first time we returned with our son and DIL. Both nights the food was great and the service was top notch. I do recommend a reservation, however. Cayucos is small and there are only...More

On a recent 5 night visit to Cayucos, ate at this restaurant twice. Be sure to get a reservation as tables fill up and there is a wait. Being of Italian descent, I am particular! I found the food varied and good. Try the Mediterranean...More

Italian theme. Different style, main on top of potato or pasta as opposed to separate course or plate. Very generous portions. Have had chicken Marsala, pork saltimbocca, chicken piccata. Above average quality. Not for serious Italians fans, but no hesitation in recommending. Especially at price...More

We ordered take out to sit on our balcony and watch the whales and birds. Stuffed mushroom was fabulous and a good size for 2. The shrimp tortellini was excellent - fresh tasty good size shrimp with great tortellini. Would love to dine in

If you're in Cayucos, you have to go here. It's that simple. We love to get their pizzas to go and watch the sunset

Excellent Italian restaurant in the heart of the little beach town of Cayucos! Best soups (the cream of mushroom and cream of asparagus were recent faves!), great anti-pasti salad loaded with salami, olives and a really tasty vinaigrette. My go-to dinner order is the chicken...More

Excellent wine list. Artichoke soup to die for! Shrimp and pasta as well as Portobello Alfredo were delicious! Service was excellence for out-of-towners as well as locals - lots of locals are a good sign of a consistently good restaurant. Reservations on weekends were recommended.

Most corkage fees are about 10.00 dollars a bottle. I am not sure about this restaurant because we bought a bottle of Opolo Mountain Zinfandel. It was reasonably priced for a good bottle of one of our local wines. I have... More
