Vino Bello

Italian in Santa Cruz

It's just 1km out of town, but this warm Italian restaurant really makes you feel like you're in the heart of wine country – especially when you're sipping a glass of Carmenere on the gorgeous patio at sunset or dining by candlelight on homemade gnocchi or thin-crust pizzas.

From Plaza de Armas, take Nicolas Palacios, passing the Laura Hartwig vineyards; you'll see the entrance to Vino Bello on the left.
