Ristorante Italiano is a slightly upscale restaurant serving regional Italian specialties and pasta. It is housed in Branciforte Plaza, which actually housed the local hospital up until Dominican Hospital was built. Ristorante Italianto exists where the hospital cafeteria used to be, but you can't really tell just by being in the space.
They have a full bar and selection of Californian and Italian wines. Seating is indoor, outdoor on the patio, or in the sunroom.
It's consistently voted "Best Italian Restaurant in Santa Cruz County" by Good Times readers.
