A Word From a Happy Patron

Stopped in for a virgin visit with a friend on a Tuesday night. Downtown Santa Rosa didn’t seem too busy but Lococo’s was hoppin’! The menu looked inviting and we were smitten with the rustic look of the place, so we asked for a table and were seated immediately. The ambiance is delightful, very Old World casual. Immediately transported to Italy or at least a Little Italy somewhere! We ordered the ravioli di manzo (me) and the capellini pomodoro (she). Our waiter brought some excellent bread and oil to the table, good thing because we did have to wait a LONG time for our meal. Such was the rush of diners that night. Our waiter apologized and checked on our meals for us. No problem. I had a read meat sauce with my ravioli instead of the sage butter and it was excellent. My friend thought her dish was the best she’d ever had. Virgin visit a success; I can’t wait to go back! Oh, and our meal cost about the same as the two glasses of wine we sampled a few doors down, so we thought their pricing was fair.

Customer Testimonials

“The best Calamari! And everything is authentic… exceptional!”

My wife and I live in the Sierras. We’re avid wine drinkers and frequent Napa and Sonoma for weekend getaways — also stopping in Calistoga for mudbaths and bodywork. One of our favorite places to go is Lococo’s. The food is old-world and authentic and we love it. Great food, great prices.
