Nice atmosphere, good food no view

HappyHour a must. The food is very good but pricey . Good menu selections. We didn't like the fact that we had to keep flagging down the server to either order, get refills, bread and the bill.

Last Saturday night my wife's family met at Cafe Santorini for her parents' 60th wedding anniversary. I set this event up at this restaurant after looking for places in Pasadena that could give us a separate room for 11-14 people. We had a wonderful experience there and the food was delicious! We met in the Mezzanine room and it was... More

and everything that goes with it. Recommend to make a reservation if you don't want to wait, can be busy at times. Sitting outside in summer brings you close to Italy, right downtown Burbank. Enjoyable place and nice, diverse Italian menu. Friendly staff.

My wife and I had lunch at Cafe Santorini. The salmon was grilled to perfection; the mash potatoes were well-seasoned; and the vegetables were delicious. My wife's chicken kebobs were tasty as well as the humus and pita bread. Since I am not partial to red peppers, I returned the calm chowder which has many incorporated into the soup. The... More

After much deliberation we chose the tried and true and it was better than the last time. It had been noisy because of a large loud table of people near us, but this time it was perfect. The food, salmon, lamb, and calamari were excellent. Loved the way the calamari was prepared and served with a yummy salad and excellent... More

I’ve enjoyed eating at Santorini a few times during the past few years. Each time I found the food tasty, service good, and ambience pleasant both indoors and on the patio. The menu isn’t as Greek as the restaurant’s name suggests, though the several Mediterranean dishes I tried were executed convincingly. Santorini also offers an array of pizzas, pastas, and... More

Very pleasant but slightly noisy restaurant in Old Town Pasadena. Good service, excellent food. The Hallumi appetizer was excellent, as was the mushroom risotto. The very, very dark chocolate gelato was outstanding. For its genre, this was 5-star dining. Would highly recommend a visit.

This restaurant was close to our hotel in Old Town Pasadena and we went there on the recommendation of the hotel staff. Great service and excellent Italian/Mediterranean food.

The Cafe Santorini is a nice-enough sort-of Greek/American restaurant in the heart of Pasadena. We were a party of six, and we sat on the first-floor outside terrace. Service was slick (even though the waiters, I would say, had an average age of 65+ years). Wine and drinks were relatively expensive. Starters were of the grilled calamari, roast prawns, intense...

We went here for lunch with my work team for our holiday lunch. The chicken kabob was excellent. Their menu is brief but has some good dishes to choose from. The service has always been a bit slow, but the server's attitude was excellent.
