Fun place to watch people

Santa Barbara is a college town. Many parents with their college children were observed in the restaurant. The Italian entrée’s quality was slightly above average. The ambiance of the restaurant was nicely done. We had a relaxing and enjoyable dinner

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.

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 cold. While friendly, it was... 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...
