$7 for $15 Worth of Italian and Argentine Cuisine for Lunch

The lunch menu includes the choripan argentino panini sandwich, which is layered with grilled Argentine-style sausage and housemade chimichurri sauce ($8.95), butternut-squash-and-ricotta ravioli with butter-sage sauce ($11.95), and matambre con rusa—a traditional Argentine cold meat roll with vegetables, herbs, and potato salad ($8.95).

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.


great food and good service, enjoy the nice selection of dishes. We go a couple of times a month.
