Nice terrace, friendly service, delicious food.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Pasadena. Always receive a warm friendly welcome, and the food is always delicious. There is a lovely terrace for outside dining.

Had a wonderful Youvetsi. High class service, great food, should be 5 stars all around. Great price as well. Can't complain about a single thing from my experience. This is a must visit place in Pasadena. Enjoy.

This is my go to place to bring visitors to LA. The food is good and the atmosphere transcends any in Old Town. It is located off the alley in an old brick building. Their Mediterranean focus offers specials of grilled meats, seafood dishes, a variety of pastas, beautiful salads (ahi and octopus are very good) and appetizer platters. I... More

We were drawn to Cafe Santorini by the photo of diners on its terrace area and fond memories of rooftop dining in Athens. While the view of Pasadena can't compare, it was a very pleasurable evening. It would be easy to miss the entrance if you aren't paying attention to the street address, but once inside it was clear this... More

Cafe Santorini is an upscale Mediterranean food restaurant in downtown Old Pasadena. We had lunch here yesterday and found the food to be outstanding. The service was great, portions were more than ample, and our meal was absolutely delicious. We will definitely dine at this restaurant again when in the area and I would not hesitate to recommend it to... More

Cafe Santorini is one of a large number of upscale and trendy restaurants that now populate the Union Street area of Old Pasadena. As is true of all these places, Santorini seems to be aimed at diners who appreciate fine food, nice settings, and who don't mind spending more than a few bucks when they go out. Italian is 'in'...

When the weather is nice, dining on the upstairs patio is just lovely. Food is tasty, though not extraordinary. Service is fine, though not exemplary. The restaurant also has nice space for holding private events. Not a bad choice if you're in old town Pasadena, not a destination though.

We were in Pasadena for our daughter's wedding and we hosted a dinner for our family and the groom's-12 of us. We sat on the rooftop terrace which was delightful. We received our food in a timely manner, but we're not rushed, even though it was very busy. (We had made reservations.) The food was delicious and the staff very... More
