    Very interesting place to eat. Has an over-the-top theme like everything at the Madonna Inn. Good menu with great bakery items. What’s really cool is that you can also order from the steak house menu.

    We had an outstanding experience at Mistura! The service was amazing, with our server (perhaps the owner?) describing the extensive menu and giving suggestions. The drinks and the food were all delicious, every bite. And they were absolute works of art on the plate! It was a wonderful experience.

    While dinner at Cafe Roma is always a treat, we were especially pleased to find an excellent tasting menu at a bargain price! We ordered each of the dishes and shared them. Everything was delicious, the service impeccable (thank you, Greg!), good martinis and a bottle of wine, with a cappuccino to round out the evening. We will return before ent end of the month to take advantage of this great menu! Thank you!

    My husband and I had a wonderful dinner. It was our time dining at the steakhouse and it was an excellent experience. The staff was amazing and very friendly. Our server, Jamie, was so helpful and even took some photos of my husband and I with a polaroid we brought. The food was perfectly cooked and the cake was better than I imagined. We can't wait to go back.

    We had a great time , service was friendly, profession and accommodating. We love the cool decor and cozy environment . I get sensitive to noise levels so I suppose if you're seeking a quiet dinner request a table away from a potentially loud party. Desserts were yummy and the cocktails did not disappoint! Enjoy !!

Discover California Central Coast

The California Central Coast is home to beautiful beaches, and it is also a major source of fresh seafood for local restaurants. Enjoy a locally caught Cajun-style Albacore tuna steak, panko-crusted and topped with wasabi coleslaw and sliced avocado. Elsewhere, you may prefer the halibut, which is in season year-round in the area and guaranteed to be fresh. Order it lightly cooked in lemon and butter, sauteed in wine, butter, garlic, and capers and served over pasta or with potatoes. The coast has more than seafood, as residents and visitors can relish a California beet salad made with sliced beets over butter lettuce and liberally sprinkled goat cheese dressed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
