We found Arnoldi's through TripAdvisor and we were pleased to hear that they had a table outside on the back patio. Our server was responsive and friendly. The food was classic Italian fare and was delicious. There are lights and a terrace that make it nice at night. There's also a bocci ball pit if you're into playing that! Makes for a memorable dinner experience in Santa Barbara. Definitely put it on your list. Be sure to sit outside!
