Good, old-fashioned Italian food. They had enough room to accommodate our 10 people.
They have inside and outside dining, an inside bar, and a bocce ball court outside. Parking is a challenge since the city just recently painted a huge red zone on the side of their restaurant to accommodate a bike lane on a very small, narrow street called Cota...why? The City makes no sense. The restaurant was very nice in letting us amend our order so that the 5 children with us would have their pasta like they wanted it. They have a variety of sauces offered to put on your pasta which is nice. My husband had the lasagna bolognese and LOVED it!
Best seafood pasta I've ever eaten. Bocci courts provide lots of fun for kids. Service is great too. A real gem in Santa Barbara
Went here for Mother's 96th birthday. Been coming here since 1969 when Jimmy and Helen were operating, and Joe at the bar. Grandfather used to go over on weekends and play bocce ball out back, then play poker with his buddies. Food is better than ever. If your looking for 'high end - fancy' Italian cuisine this is not that type of place. It is however outstanding, home style, traditional Italian food. Our family is Italian, and not easy to please with Italian food, and we love it. We were seated in the 'back room' adjacent to a table of 22 LAFD men who are here fighting the fires and doing search and rescue. When their meal was nearly over, the owners of the restaurant come over to thank them, as we all had, and announced they were buying their dinners. Really nice gesture from great owner/operators. No one else in restaurant knew but us. So it was done from their hearts, with much gratitude for the brave men.
We had an excellent meal and service - again!

Very lovely authentic Santa Barbara dining experience. Every time I go to Arnoldi’s It reminds me why I fell in love with Santa Barbara 38 years ago. I love how walking into Arnoldi’s makes you feel like you are walking into a well-loved relatives home, and the food tastes like your grandmother’s Sunday dinner...never disappoints! Great friendly staff.....love Arnoldi’s, just wish they had more booths!
Driving thru Santa Barbara with hungry kids, we decided to check out Arnoldi’s. Found this restaurant to be totally charming, very friendly and attentive service, great food and great drinks. The noise level was perfect to have kids with as they didn’t annoy the other diners. Would absolutely go again.
Great place for our Family and friends Christmas gathering -service and atmosphere were terrific.
We were seeking a Rib Eye without driving to Woodland Hills. We had a great meal with fair service, a lot of waiting between services. I had the Veal Marsala, and when it got to the table you could tell it had been under a lamp for a little while. 2 of us without booze was $120 with tip. Oh, the Calamari was fantastic!
Good Italian for Ca, but not like east coast. Oooookooooooooooooooooooooo
A classic Santa Barbara diner. Always good people, good food, and good vibes.
