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

Don't know about their food (just had a couple of drinks) but this place is very nice. It is just the ideal spot to grab a beer with your friends or your date. Located downtown the place is very spacious, cool vibes over there!

The ravioli was fine - nothing fancy but decent. It was a good texture and the sauce was good, just nothing amazing. The garlic cheese bread was definitely the best part. Prices were fairly reasonable for the portions.

My husband were hungry at the end of a long day sightseeing. We decided to pop into this place. We loved everything we ordered. The caesar salad was excellent. If you like Italian go here. The servers are all Italian and the food authentic. No reservations required and prices are decent as well.
