It's not often you find a pizza "joint" that's worthy of "special occasion" status, but that's exactly what Ca' Dorio Pizzeria is. The menu is superb, pizza crust is just-right (thin) and service is attentive but not over-bearing.

Santa Barbara is sprouting
Santa Barbara is sprouting new locations for Spago-like pizzas. The pizza was OK but not remarkable at all - meaning those online reviews were saw that weren't deeply impressed matched our experience.
We were hoping for something a little tastier (Anchor, Bucatinni, and Via Vai are current favorites.) Olio & LImon pizzeria nearby is pretty good and a bit better than Ca Dario. The setting and ambiance were nice, some good salads We didn't try anything from the rest of the menu so this is really just a snapshot of the pizza.

The Best Pizza
Delicious thin crust pizza. The gluten free crust was divine! Terrific salads with delicious dressings. Friendly staff.

Not sure good as Olio Pizzeria
The food wasnt bad by any means. .. it just wasn't anything to jump over. We got the fava bean appetizer and it was really simple. .. could easily make it at home. The pizzas didn't have any popping flavors. The wine and service,however, were fantastic!

Tastes like grandmas cooking!
By far, the best Italian food I've had since my grandma went to heaven! Rest in peace Dora!

Best Pizza in Town?
The folks that own Ca' Dario opened this place last year and it's become a favorite. The scene is decidedly casual, but the pizza is extraordinary. Real Italian. There's a great variety, and the salads and appetizers are great as well. Ridiculously affordable for the quality of the food they serve. There's only one other pizza joint in town that's even in the same league.... This is head and shoulders...

Absolutely delicious. Friends wanted to go to Olio Pizzeria but we decided to try something new since our last experience there was something less than stellar. Ca Dario's was awesome. Loved, loved, loved everything about it especially the gluten free option. If somehow Ca Dario's could find a way to soften the ambiance just a bit and provide more space between the tables, everything would be perfect.

Nice addition to Ca Dario!
Had a really delicious meal with my friends to celebrate a birthday! Pizza was awesome and they have a great beer and wine selection. Love that they takereservations as I can tell this place can get quite busy. The bar looks very comfortable to sit as well. Will be back!

We have eaten here three times since they opened and the food quality has improved each time. The pizzas were excellent and the salads were fresh.
I really like how cozy the restaurant is, giving it a unique, more European feel.

There is nothing better than a great Italian Pizzeria and Ca' Dario is just that. The service was friendly and good. The pizza was thin with great toppings. It is small and intimate with character.

Great find in Santa Barbara
We took a gamble and made a reservation at Ca' Dario Pizzeria before heading to SB for a weekend getaway. We were pleasantly surprised by everything: food, service, wine. It's crowded in its space, but it doesn't matter... we'll definitely go back.

Good pizza and salad.
Great pizza, but you need to offer a whole grain crust. Salad choices were interesting and tasty.
