My husband found Toma on TripAdvisor and made reservations before we arrived in Santa Barbara. Our hosts told us when we arrived that we wouldn't regret it! The restaurant is right on Cabrillo near the Harbor, and is fairly small. A "white tablecloth" place but...More

Hard to get a reservation around 6:30pm as booked so options were early @ 5:30pm or late 8:00pm. Good menu and food was above average. Definitely worth checking out.

Wonderful evening. Every aspect was superb. Waited 15 minutes past reservation but after that all was great. Excellent Italian wine list. Tuna cone ap and burrata salad were great. Ciopinno and scallops were perfect. Definately worth the ratings.

We went with our children to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Waitstaff was inattentive. Water glasses were never refilled. It took forever for the waiter to take our order. Appetizer plates were placed on top of our menus. Really?!? When plates came out they were put...More
