The main reason we return as often as possible is because Grappolo's is an all around great Italian trattoria. For us it's a seventy mile round trip but the experience is always pleasant and delicious! We were greeted warmly and seated at 5:30 comfortably before...More

Another place I highly recommend in Santa Ynez. Slightly more formal than other places (but we dressed casual). Food is great. I've never been disappointed.

Nice local Italian restaurant near Chumash. We arrived and were quickly seated without a reservation. The pleasant staff brought us out some fresh bread and waters. The setting was nice with a candle to boot. I quickly made my oil and vinegar mix with pepper...More

I lived in Italy for three years, so I guess I am qualified with regard to "authentic" Italian food. Realize that Italian food has a lot of regional variations, the the food in the North is quite different than the South or in Sicily. That...More
