“Good, but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012 via mobile

My husband and i had dinner and our impressions were, nice wine list, good service, but dining room is small and tables are very close together. My capellini pomodoro was good, but not the best i've had. My husband had a pasta seafood dish, which he enjoyed. Overall we felt dinner was pricey for what we had. So many choices in Santa Barbara, not sure we would return.

“Wow. Casual, gourmet masterpiece.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Although loud and a bit crowded, the food far surpassed that of any pizzeria I've ever eaten at. The ingredients were fresh, the dishes were true to Italian cuisine, the flavors were crisp and the atmosphere was perfect. Don't expect excellent service or short wait times, but do expect the best pizza you've ever tasted.

“A different taste of r”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

We couldn't get enough of the olives brought to our table when we first sat down--addictive! Service was intelligent and efficient, and the food was very good. There was a really nice vibe in the dining room the night we were there--pleasant hum of conversation and enjoyment.
