Great garlic bread!

It was our last night in Santa Barbara and we really wanted a hearty Italian meal -- Pascucci fit the bill. When we arrived, we were quickly seated and the waitress brought us a basket of the most delectable garlic bread. I think we asked for at least 3 refills! The lasagna was good, albeit... read more

We just had a scrumptious dinner tonight. It was our first time at the restaurant and we will definitely go back. The ambiance was quaint and cozy. The menu was quite extensive with a plethora of dishes. We got the most romantic seat in the place right in front of the fireplace. Our waiter was very friendly and polite. The... More

Pascucci's on State Street in Santa Barbara could not be better located as a great place to eat while shopping or before/after going to the show at the El Paseo theater. Our waiter was experienced, knowledgeable and thoughtful. The menu is varied and interesting. The lunch we enjoyed there was filling and delicious. We'll be back!

It’s hard to rate this restaurant. First off I want to say my hubby ended up sick soon after dinner, but whether the food at Pascucci was the cause, I don’t know. I’ll only talk about my food and restaurant experience. We arrived about 5:15pm on a Tuesday. No reservation. We stood for a minute or so waiting for someone... More

My wife and I celebrated my birthday at Pascucci recently. We really enjoyed this restaurant. The waiter brought their signature warm garlic bread which we love. We then shared a small Caesar salad which was large enough for both of us. And then we shared the eggplant Parmesan which came with a side of Fettuccine Alfredo. The portions were large... More

We've eaten at Pascucci's since our daughter recommended it while a student at UCSB. The food is delicious and always served promptly and hot. Staff is pleasant and attentive, and the garlic bread is addicting! Numerous pasta dishes to choose from, as well as chicken dishes, and a burger for those who are not pasta fans. We enjoy it and...

We stumbled across this ways while passing by Santa Barbara, absolutely loved it! Great choice of Italian food, drinks and deserts. For lunch, there is a nice budget offer available (I took half salad, half lasagna and soda drink for 12$). Very nice interior and most likely no waiting time as the place is very big! Stuff was friendly and... More

We were a group of 14 - including two food-fussy, tired and argumentative 9yos and their tired and argumentative 74yo grandparents - for a post-grad graduation dinner and we were looked after superbly and the menu had something for everyone. I picked traditional classics and it was all cooked superbly with that home-made feel that I adore. One thing that... More

Usually the service is pretty good been here plenty of times. Went there for my bday and all I did was sit around for at least 15 min before the waiter that went MIA even came back to see if I wanted something to drink. It was not busy at all plenty of other waiters just shooting B.S and kicking... More

I came here with my parents (who, I should note, loved their heavy, creamy pastas). There were simply no healthy options, unless you ordered a salad without dressing (all the dressings were creamy or sugary). Things that shouldn't be creamy, were creamy. The garlic bread was drenched in butter. The Caesar salad had too much parmesan cheese mixed in, coating... More
