“Excellent find”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

I read a lot of reviews when recently visiting Santa Barbara and most places had people who loved it and people who hated it so I was pleased to walk into the welcoming environment of Ca Dario. Everything was excellent I had the Bolognese and yum Tiramisu for dessert. For a can't miss place to eat check this place out.

“A Valentines Dinner to remember”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Our first experience will definitely not be our last.

The staff was awesome with a friendly greeting and exceptional service during our dinner.

Our meals were both fantastic. I had the Sea Bass and my wife had the a chicken with pasta dish that was out of this world tasty.

The wine selection is good.

You won't find better Italian in Santa Barbara.

“Extrodinary Resturant - if in Santa Barbara a must”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Ca Dario offers a broad selection of Italian delicacies. I'm a big fan of their fish but Veal and Steaks are excellent as well. My group consisted of three friends; I had a Sea Bass, and my friends had Veal and the Rib Eye- we were all very pleased with our choices. The wine list is broad with lots of great options at several price ranges - we tried a great Barolo which was $80.00, but there were several below $40.00. They are consistantly great in food and service- highly recommend Ca Dario. Unless you are dining early make reservations they are typically packed by 7:30.
