Nice atmosphere, good food

The atmosphere at Santorini is great. Of course it starts with the location already: Old Pasadena. When dining at the Santorini balcony you enjoy the Old Pasadena atmosphere up to the max. The card of Santorini is extensive and offers choices from around the Mediterranean. Food quality is good, not... read more

Food and drinks were amazing. Ok for business meals but was a bit noisy. Smack in the middle of old town Pasadena so convenient to walk out and find a nearby place for a nightcap

The room is lovely and the welcome friendly but the menu is too long and the food very ordinary. Service was also very slow the night we were there.

Visited yesterday after the photography show at the Civic Auditorium. Everyone at the show stated this was the place to eat. Arrived before the rest of our party so we decided to grab a drink at the bar. Upon asking the bartender for a sangria recommendation, he gave us samples of both so we could make an "informed decision". Nice... More

We enjoyed patio dining overlooking the quaint streets of Pasadena. Our meals were delicious and fresh. We had the pesto bowtie pasta and chicken, greek salad, fish, hummus, etc and everyone was more than satisfied.

Elegant, multi-level restaurant with a number of nice little spaces. Service is ok but should be at a higher level. The food overall was ok, surely edible but not inspiring or above average. Firstly, the sangria was much too sweet. The starter Greek salad was really not that great. Dressing was sort of ok and there was such a small... More

It's up some stairs, but a relaxing patio with low lighting, above the bustling courtyard of One Colorado. Mediterranean menu, some nice California and Italian wines, just enjoyable for couples, families, and easy strolling through Old Pasadena while waiting or after dinner.

Came here with a large party for a business dinner. The ambiance is wonderful, outdoor patio in the winter (which was great for the east coasters here). Very friendly service and helpful with recommendations. Everyone enjoyed the food. Only problem was we wanted to split the check and that caused some confusion, but it all worked out in the end.

The soup and speccialty dishes were very good along with the shrimp and ceasr salad. The othe pasta dishes seemed tasty but ordinary. Generous portions and pleasant quick service. Kink of noisy from the brick walls. Worth more visits.

The food is excellent and the service was great. On weekends the restaurant gets crowded and can be noisy. But its well worth it.
