We were tired and starving so stopped at this Italian restaurant in an obscure part of Santa Cruz. We didn’t expect much because of the atmosphere, but the food was a total wow. We all ordered something different and all four dishes were amazing.

Tony and Albas is one of the few delivery pizzas that we trust. They have a variety of choices on the menu. Pesto is one of our favorites with fresh tomatoes. The salads are fresh. Parking is easy for dine in.

Stopped in by accident mostly since another restaurant we were going to was not open for lunch. This is a typical pizza place with less ambiance than most. The food was not appetizing and I really can't recommend this restaurant. They have lunch specials that...More

We ate lunch here, had the lunch special which included a slice of pizza, salad and a drink. The slice was really two pieces, the salad was very generous and had lots of veggies in it. Good flavorful crust. Friendly service.

I used to go here all the time. Their slices and salads were very good. Something has changed with the cheese, and the quality is not what it was. The pine nuts on the pesto are bitter and the only way I get pesto now...More

Your right. About three years ago I started shredding the cheese in the store from fresh cheese blocks. Although more expensive his was done because it make the cheese fresher and creamer. Pre-shredded cheese is packaged with either wheat flour or rice flour to that...More

Far more diverse than chain pizzas, menu includes breakfast and dessert styles as well as unique "traditional" pies. You can definitely taste the home made difference in pizzas as well as pastas and soup-salad offerings.

We ordered pizzas and salad here. There's a big menu and everything sounds really good when you read about it. The pizzas were pretty good, but I give the salad low marks. There was a lot of lettuce and very few toppings. The price of...More
