Star Bene - Changes to try again

We live down the street by Sunny Cove Beach and we have watched Star Bene (our neighborhood gem) change ownership a few times. Sergio and his wife took over the restaurant along with a partner - The partner is now gone (good thing- the negative things that were happening to the restaurant seemed to disappear when she did) - The restaurant is back on track!

Please dont go!

Best gnocchi's in Santa Cruz

Great atmosphere with Italian music, must try the homemade gnocchi. Loved the fresh bread and that dipping sauce was to die for, service was attentive and good wine list also.
