Pretty little restaurant with a good wine menu. Not a huge menu but everything looked good. We all enjoyed our meal.

What a great meal! Our server, Danielle, was outstanding. So glad that we ate here on our last night because I feel I would have missed out on a fantastic meal. Loved the quiet, intimate seating.

I love italian food just as much as the next guy. I have enjoyed it all over the world. I also lived part of my life as a Chef and found that it messed with my dining experience head. First, i must admit that the interior of the restaurant is great, the service was good and so was the food.... More

Definitely one of the best restaurants in Santa Barbara. Everything was perfect, the specials were delicious and I also really enjoyed the roasted chicken which was very tender and moist. The service and building were good too. I would definitely come back and would recommend it to anyone!

So pleased we chose to eat here. The food was cooked to perfection. Well presented by very accommodating staff. I had ravioli which was very large but perfect in taste. The sweets were delicious particularly the Tiramisu. Great wine list as well and not over the top prices either.

We went there on Saturday April 30, 2016. Easy to make the 8 pm reservation on OpenTable. We were promptly seated. The 2-top we were initially seated was reserved for a larger group that came in later. We were moved to a 4-top of our choice. The bread was fresh, and the signature Sicilian olive oil (chef is from Sicily),... More
