Ugo Cafe is a fun, bright Italian cafe located in the center of the Santa Monica Place Mall. Only steps from the ocean, the cafe is set beneath the open ceiling of the mall, allowing the sun to pour down upon it throughout the day and giving a fantastic view of the stars at night. The cafe offers a great selection of paninis, gelato and fresh pastries from its small ordering area located inside a glass room at the center of the cafe area. Surrounding the ordering area are several patio tables for two or four guests. Valet parking is located within the mall, otherwise, metered parking is also available.
