My wife and I can still taste the awesome gluten free pizza we had at Ca' Dario Pizzeria. We went on a Tuesday night, so it wasn't crowded. We also enjoyed a great salad, a bottle of prosecco and panna cotta for dessert. Our server was friendly and very helpful. If only they had an outpost here in Massachusetts ...

We dine at Ca'dario every time we visit lovely Santa Barbara. It is just two blocks off of State Street and well worth the search. Intimate surroundings make for a pleasing lunch or dinner dining experience. The ravioli, parpadell and bolognese are marvelous. The Caprese is wonderful. Chopped salad excellent. They are helpful with wine selections, as well.We truly enjoy... More

I only have one gripe with this place and it really is not a deal breaker. The tables are close, the volume is loud and some people like that. On occasion I can abide with the noise as the food has been great every time I have been there. If you are tourist and you are wanting to stay downtown... More

We just ate at this venerable restaurant in downtown Santa Barbara. The crispy Caesar salad was delicious as was the Branzino. My wife's John Dory was extremely flavorful. We have eaten here before and the restaurant is predictably tops.

Truly authentic Italian meal. The clam and mussel in white wine and garlic is magnificent with a hint of garlic that is not overpowering. The right amount of chilli to spice it up but not too spicy. The pasta was cooked aldente. The bolognaise sauce was superb. The pillows with spinach and ricotta were amazing. Prices are competitive but won't... More
