Casual family dining restaurant. Nice waitstaff and piping hot food with generous portions. You can easily split entrees. Mediterranean salad and bruschetta is a must if you love olives and feta cheese. Only thing I have ordered that wasn't great was the philly steak sandwich. It was made with hamburger not steak. Not horrible but not a philly steak sandwich... More

Then they didn't have any angel hair pasta ( his favorite), but that wasn't a deal breaker.I was the only one that did not get a plate. My husband and both boys were nearly finished when the waitress said there was a misunderstanding and my... More

Have been here a few times. Tried a few plates and everything was very good and well seasoned. The sundried tomatoe sauce is excellent. Great garlic bread and salad dressings. Can't wait to go again.

They have the best chicken spinach alfredo ever! My husband and I go there often. The hours are sometimes unpredictable but other than that we love this place! So good!

Had a spinach alfredo dish with a side Caesar salad - both were excellent. This restaurant reminds me of the neighborhood restaurants that served good food in a friendly environment - definitely not a restaurant chain store.

We love Santa Barbara. Having eaten at the Pearland location, we were thrilled when a location opened in Alvin. We've eaten there more than six times and have never had a bad experience. My favorite dish is the Sun Dried Tomato Ravioli. My husband loves the Eggplant Parmigiana. The Tomato Basil soup, bread and salad are delicious as well. For... More
