$12 for $25 Worth of Italian and Argentinian Dinner Cuisine

The dinner menu includes clams and mussels sautéed in a garlicky white-wine sauce and served with french bread ($12.95). Rigatoni pasta arrives tossed in a four-cheese sauce with shredded radicchio ($15.95). Entree portions of veal piccata simmer in a white-wine lemon-and-caper sauce ($19.95), while creamy risotto mingles in bowls with mixed seafood, white wine, tomatoes, and spinach ($19.95).

Star Bene

The only Argentine-inspired restaurant in Santa Cruz, Star Bene serves “super comfort food,” as described by Christina Walters of Metro Active. Inside the low-lit dining room, which is reminiscent of a beach cottage, servers uncork bottles of Italian and Californian wines to complement swirls of homemade pasta, slow-cooked meats, and diners’ ever-rosier cheeks. Star Bene’s chefs use local, free-range meats and organic produce whenever available to create seafood, pastas, and meats complemented by beautifully simple sauces and fresh, stand-alone ingredients.
