Nice Italian Place right on State Street

While walking on State Street we decided to "pop in" to Pascucci for a light dinner...we are so pleased we did. We ordered salads and appetizers and it was very good. Our Server was attentive, helpful and very nice. We even got a free desert...didn't need it, but we ate it anyway!

We always make a point of stopping and eating at Pascucci whenever we come to Santa Barbara. Honestly, sometimes we drive up to SB just to go to Pascucci. The food is delicious and it's a great value. The menu is extensive, but you can't go wrong...everything is awesome.

On a visit to SB, we were wandering State St and decided on Pascucci for dinner. We snagged a table outside, with a street singer off to the right -- a bonus. The menu is typical Italian. I am rating Pascucci average because our dinners were mixed. My dining partner had Spaghetti Bolognese, it was un-inspired. I on the other... More

Honestly I really don't recommend them. Some of my friends told me "it's not good". So i didn't expect much,but everything was worse than I expected. The guy took us to the table and it was cramped. He should have taken us to a larger table. We weren't comfortable. I ordered carbonara, it was too oily, with no flavor. Even... More

My first time at this restaurant and I was hoping for something nice. We ordered the Grilled large tiger shrimp which came virtually cremated therefore making them very tough and "small". We then ordered the Amalfi three cheese ravioli with the rosemary sauce, if there were three cheeses in there I could not taste them, I tasted only something like... More

Never going back! Drinks where not good very hesitant on changing it for me. Never brought the water, plates and the jumbo shrimp was way over cooked. There hospitality was very disappointing.

I am always a little hesitant to enter into an Italian restaurant because there are such a lots of mediocre ones around. This one came highly recommended by the hotel staff and we decided to give it a try. It turned out to be a good choice! Attractive location and a grand dining room with high ceilings and beautiful decor.... More

A tradition for good Italian food in SB. Great menu of traditional iItalian favorites. Sit outside if you can and watch the people walking by. Prices are reasonable, bar and wine offerings are good. Desserts are good. Noisy inside. Gets busy early.
