We usually are avid Tripadvisor users to... More

This is a busy restaurant but serving our main mail before we have even finished the appetiser was a bit much. The mozzarella di bufala was dry and rubbery, not good. A shame because it looks like a fun place.

This restaurant is on the popular State Street in Santa Barbara. It looks like a quaint café with patio seating, but it is actually very big inside. We were seated right away in the back room. The atmosphere was really nice, with a cute fountain back there. We were brought garlic bread while we decided on our meal. The garlic... More

Pascucci is one of my favorite places to have lunch/dinner. I have never been disappointed with any aspect of my experiences there. The ambiance of the restaurant is lovely and unique, and there is a nice patio for dining out front (great for people watching on State Street). There's a romantic little nook in front of a fire place and... More

Several good friends, whom we trust, told us not to miss this place. We had planned on visiting one of SB's other great Italian places. They were right.. the food was extremely good/ tasty/ well prepared/ served promptly and nicely presented. We found that on weekdays, they have a 1/2 serving of selected complete meals which were plenty for us.... More

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
