Excellent service---the staff are friendly, responsive and hard-working. The food was delicious--two kinds of warm bread and tasty, well-seasoned entrees---risotto and choppino. A very tasty, creamy crime brûlée topped it off.

I always stop for lunch here when I am in Santa Barbara. The outside seating area is small, but perfect for people watching. The inside is like a classy New York Italian café. The food is ALWAYS outstanding and the daily menu very interesting. Friendly, professional service with a California warmth.

Our family wanted to take us to their favorite little Italian restaurant while we were in town. The service was attentive. I really enjoyed the warm bread topped with red onions and sliced tomatoes served with fresh pesto. We enjoyed assorted fried seafood for appetizer. For entree we had seafood pasta, salads, and salmon. Everyone enjoyed their choices. Afterwards, we... More

We are from the UK and spend time in SB regularly as well as having family in Montecito. We have a few favourite restaurants that we return to time and again and thought this year we would try TRE Lune. There were four in our party with one a native Italian who now lives in CA. We would have no... More

We have eaten at sister restaurant, CaDario, multiple times over the years but wanted to try something different. Atmosphere feels like Chicago -- very cool. Food quality was good though not up to the CaDario standards. Service was attentive and personable. Problem was lack of value. Ordered crab leg special. Price was $30. Split between two people. Each person rec'd... More

It's a pricy place, but some things on the menu that are not so pricy. Love the photographs on the wall. I had the prime beef pannini sandwich with asparagus soup; both delicious. Located in Montecito. Relaxing place and great bread, warm for starters with delicious vinegar and olive oil along with a pesto sauce.

Very pretty little restaurant with good service. My son had pizza and said it was excellent and I had a lovely pasta dish with a rose sauce and mushrooms that was very tasty. Perfect portion size as well. Would definitely go back.
