great garlic bread - order the Marinara sauce for $1.00 and dip in the bread! You're be a real "goombah"!

Their menu selections are varied and everyone in our party of 6 got different selections, so, it turned into a sharing experience. Very good lasagna, chicken parmigiana, Marsala risotto and the garlic bread is fantastic. Our server, Ashley, was attentive and very friendly.

Good salads and friendly service, dinner was just 'meh'... One special, decent value. One a la carte, nothing too special. We're from out of town and seem to have Fallen to the tourista trap? For all of the menu talk of local supply and respect for local community, comes off as regular fare.

We dined here on Friday night, after the commencement ceremony at Santa Barbara City College. The fragrance of the cuisine practically pulled us through the door. We had no reservation but our party of six was seated within twenty minutes of our arrival. What a lovely, warm ambiance. What exceptional service. We all ate extremely well: chicken piccata, fettuccine alfredo,... More

Three of us enjoyed a Friday night dinner here. This was the restaurant our adult son Santa Barbara resident chose for his birthday dinner. I was concerned when I called and found out that they don't take reservations. When we arrived it was very busy, but we were seated immediately. Many, many choices on the menu, and they all sounded... More

Walking by you might be deceived by the small outdoor area on taste street. The place is huge and for good reason. The garlic Parmesan bread is great along with the margaritas. Service was great and sitting outside for lunch was perfect. Prices range but they had a lunch special for 11 bucks. They also have more than just pasta... More

I am a semi regular for 8 years now, lately it seems everybody that works there is on their phone especially our server... Come on that's not the service I know. Get off your phones and pay that special attention to your guests that has kept us coming back all these years. Drinks were great (Sangria) Jerry behind the Bar.... More

We were looking for a cocktail and found a restaurant. Pascucci's delightful bar tender makes a mean margarita, and the decor - all warm reds and copper kitchen enticed us to stay for dinner. We chose a table for two in the front restaurant, quirkily decorated with curtains that could be closed for privacy. Our waitress was fun, joining in... More

I and most locals love this place. The food is always good. The service is pretty fast, considering the amount of business they get. If your server is Rosy, she will take care of you. However, if you're looking for quiet dining, this is not your place.

While staying in Santa Barbara on March 20th, I asked someone for a recommendation for a good Italian restaurant and they gave me the name of this place. When we came in, there were two women in front of us and when the host (a male person) went to seat them, he never came back to the host station. We... More
