We ate here after our glider ride nearby. This is a smaller quaint local restaurant with very nice atmosphere, bar area, and great Italian food. We walked in without a reservation and managed a nice table for 8.

After spending the day in the beautiful wine country, it was great to set in such beautiful and relaxing ambience. The dinner was absolutely delicious and the service was outstanding. This will be our "go to" place when we're in town.

This is our go to restaurant whenever we are driving by. Great food, wine selection and service. Save room for dessert. The pasta, caesar salad, and veal is always a favorite of mine. My wife loves the pizza and other salads.

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
