The restaurant started as an average Italian place, became little worse over the years. It is quite popular though. Maybe because almost every other place in Santa Ynez is by far more expensive.

Really enjoyed the food, wine and service plus the atmosphere was great. We’d go back again! Especially liked the pizza, eggplant appetizer and arugula salad.

We sat out on the enclosed porch and enjoyed two mouth-watering salads: the Insalata Spinaci (spinach) and the Insalata Ortolana (grilled veggie). We’re not vegetarians, they just sounded like a good, lighter choice for lunch. Both salads were delicious and left us feeling full, yet...More

While the wine list is mostly local Santa Barbara, Central Cal and some popular Italian, you don't go there for the wine, it simply has great ambiance! Super busy most days of the week with large tables and rooms for... More
