Delicious!

We read so many great reviews about this pizzeria and had to try it during our recent visit to SB. The truffle pizza is INCREDIBLE! We also ordered the tripe and the fried cauliflower- both excellent. The service was good and the wine/beer was, too. All in all a great experience. Thank you!

We have dined here many times, always enjoy our meal. The staff is friendly, attentive and helpful if you need suggestions or have questions on the menu offerings. A nice wine list including many by the glass options - all fairly priced. Beer lovers will find a variety of Italian beers. The salami's are cut perfectly, exceptional quality. The cheese... More

Watch out !! We got in at the opening for lunch 11 :30. Order the calamari nero and pizza umbra. There is just one other table occupied at that time. After a few minutes a waiter comes with our two plates in the hands and serves them to the other table! We’re quite surprised that the only other table in... More

Really enjoyed this pizzaria in the heart of SB. our arugla salad was outstanding and the pizza done just right. i find it hard to give a pizza restaurant a 5 but if you're a big brick oven pizza person then it's a 5.

Crust is thin and crispy. Any topping you choose is always out of this world. All homemade on the spot! Nice choice of beers and wine too!

We were seated at bottom of stairs and within 5 minutes a rushing waitress dropped a sharp knife on her way down that just missed us - a poor but memorable start to an evening that would go downhill from there. Another waiter literally sprinted past us up and down the stairs the whole time we were eating as though... More

Other places may have been voted ahead of them, but I think this place has the best pizza, wine, and service combination in the city. The Italian ambience is also a treat! Go early or make reservations, because they can get busy.

We were just hungry for a midday bite and split a tropes pizza between three of us. It's smoked mozzarella with fennel sausage and caramelized onions. Yum! Crispy thin crust, smoky oozy cheese and yummy sweet onions and sausage. Friendly service. Would definitely return for a bigger meal.

By far the best pizza in Santa Barbara, if you're looking for authentic Italian pizza. Get the Umbra, it is a cheese and mushroom pizza with Truffle oil, simply outstanding. The carbonara is also great, with a soft yolk egg in the middle. If you like eggs, get this one! The appetiziers are also very good with a wide selection... More

Had a late lunch at this little place about one block off of State Street, at the north end of the main shopping area. As it was a weekday, it was rather quiet which I enjoyed. I had a panini, featuring salami and provolone cheese. Excellent, but spicy. I'd do it again. The panini had a side dish of salad.... More
