We’ve been wanting to branch out a bit in our restaurant reviews and explore Aptos and Santa Cruz. We had heard about a great restaurant called Mentone serving pizza, pastas, and famous for their Negronis! We had to give it a shot, and it’s one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a long time, largely due to their caesar salad, which was a surprise!
It’s the best caesar we’ve had and if you order just one thing at Mentone, let it be the caesar. We also enjoyed a great pasta dish and pizza.
If you have a chance to drive a few miles north, Mentone is sure to be worth the extra effort!
