There are few places which have that WOW factor . Lococos exceeds this wow factor and happens to be my favorite restaurant. The ingredients are of the highest quality and the dishes are authentic. When. I first went to Lococos I was an amateur to Italian food. I was expecting pizza and stereotypes of Italy. I was pleasantly surprised and I was introduced to TRADITIONAL Italian food ,the food was so good I was eating so fast that I choked on one of the biggest prawns I have seen. After given CPR and undergoing an embarassing moment I continued to eat that prawn no way I was going to let it go to waste ! This is a charming place. I've gone there on dates , family dinners and have even celebrated my birthdays there. It's busy because everyone wants to see what the whole Lococos commotion is about . It has a certain ambiance that will bring you back for seconds. My favorite dishes there are the chicken marsela, viel Valdostana and Fettuccine gamberi (beware of the ginormous prawns) , and it's impossible to say no to desserts . They make the best cannolis in town and the tiramisu is perfect not too strong and goes great with an expresso. I have tried different Italian restaurants and it's never enough sauce or it's watery goop. Best sauce is at Lococos because it's very rich and has a thick consistency. I give kudos to the waiters and staff whom do a tremendous job for such a busy place ! Definitely worth the price these dishes are plentiful.

Customer Testimonials

“Definitely the best Italian food I have ever had!”

My wife and I came out for a visit to wine country from Tallahassee, FL the week of this past Thanksgiving and stayed in Santa Rosa. First off, what a great town/area! I just had to write and tell you how wonderful your restaurant is! From the ambiance to the quality and flavor of the food. It literally blew me away. It is definitely the best Italian food I have ever had!

I know one thing, when we come back to wine country, we are coming to your place again for dinner!
