Sadly, the Oak Tree with Italian/continental cuisine is no longer in business. The Cowboy Diner has moved down from Felton, and is now there with an entirely different ambiance and menu. A great loss to the area !!

If you are in Santa Cruz itself, this may seem a bit out of the way, but it's really only about 15 minutes north on Hwy. 9. Summer patio dining under the oaks is fabulous, and dogs are welcome. GREAT food (try the Chef's Tasting...More

We have been here many times as it is near our house. The location is beautiful. Some times the food is good but recently the service is extremely slow. Our waiter was great but the food took forever. The kids pizza was great but our...More

Location is everything here. Perfectly nestled in the redwoods. Soft lighting and yet my boys were able to explore and talk with out disturbing anyone. Great food and service. A total gem.

We come to this local restaurant to celebrate special occasions. Great Italian food and the focaccia is to die for. We always try to make it to dessert but are too full!

I have always highly recommended this restaurant but the recent change of management/chef/staff is a disappointment. The menu stayed about the same, prices went up and portions went down. I ordered the chicken piccata(about 3 oz) and was dismayed to learn that it was now...More

Oak Tree Ristorante is nestled in the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains with surrounding redwoods, rivers, wineries, and the sounds of the steam engine in the distance. This restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious meal with friends, family or that special someone.

Located on Highway 9 in Felton, just south of the entrance to Henry Cowell State Park. The newly refurbished restaurant has a warm and welcoming ambiance inside and out. Enjoy dining in a storybook setting, serene garden views, the gentle sounds of our fountain, and overhead, the sheltering arms of our spectacular giant oak.

Chef Nobile has created an excellent wine list; a selection of both local and Italian wines, making Oak Tree Ristorante the best destination in the San Lorenzo Valley.
