Steps away from chef Dario Furlati's flagship eatery, Ca Dario Pizzeria has a warm yet urban feel, with an extensive wine list and domestic and Italian beers on tap. The authentic, thin crust pizzas feature both unique and traditional toppings, such as the Soffione con Uovo (dandelion greens, local farm egg), Rossa Picante (fresno chilies, calabrese, tomato) and Napoletana (tomato, anchovies, capers); all pizzas are available with gluten free crust. The menu also features a selection of simple and fresh salads, salami plates, and crostini. Located in the heart of downtown, it's the perfect cozy spot for a meal before or after a show at one of Santa Barbara's many idilic entertainment venues.

The service at this restaurant was wonderful. Very attentive and knowledgeable waitstaff. I had a fish however that had many tiny bones and I accidentally swallowed one. It was supposed to be deboned but Were warned that they probably didn’t remove all of them. The ambience is just OK and I have a feeling it will be loud if it was during a really busy time. I thought the food was delicious and interesting and I am glad that Goleta is enjoying some nicer restaurants.

First rate pizza and very nice light Italian appetizers, plus a good wine list and some nice draft beers. And, for downtown Santa Barbara, a real bargain --e specially in light of the fact that they take reservations.

There was a parade downtown and the restaurant was not prepared with enough staff (2 people to wait all tables and run the bar). I felt terrible for the couple of servers that were there... the food was good but the management needs to do a better job preparing for busy times.

It's always a little crowded and a little loud at Ca'Dario Pizzeria, but also always worth the effort to squeeze in! Ask for one of the tables in the front window so you can watch people passing by on the street; these are also out of the main restaurant traffic flow and a little less loud. The food is just incredible. We had three pizzas and each was uniquely flavored, well baked, and tasty. The service was attentive and consistent despite the restaurant being packed. All around a great night!

Not enough greens on the 15.00 salad. We had to ask for more.

I ate at the regular restaurant not at the pizzeria. I was very disappointed with the spaghetti and the Margarita. Very over rated. Maybe I hit a bad night but for the $95.00 with tip not worth chancing again.
Cold bread with olive oil........
Nothing memorable.

Pizza was not even close to Neapolitan style. It was like Dominos on a good day. Spinach lasagna special was outstanding though.

Being locals we’ve been to Ca’Dario quite a few times and love it. So, that being said, we thought we better try the Pizzeria they opened next door. We made Open Table reservations for a Friday night meeting up with some friends after work, reserving a table in the front window. The reviews had been good, and here we were. We started off with the Bruschetta while waiting for our friends. Good thing, because it only comes with two pieces. The Bruschetta was good, but was lacking a bit of flavor. Maybe needing more basil? Or Salt & Pepper? We’ve had better. The salad we ordered was fantastic! It was a wedge salad with pancetta, and the dressing was light (not overdone). I can’t rave about this enough. This was the best wedge salad my husband and I have ever had. For the pizza, we ordered the Prosciuttocotto Pizza. It was amazing! The crust was light, it was cooked to perfection. So, two out of three for our order was fantastic. The background noise was a bit much for my husband (he wears hearing aides). No, we are not old! We will return, and by all means we will recommend!

Everything was just right, once again! Loved the pizzas, one with a veggie substitution for chicken, fresh yummy salads and a tasty Pinot!

In a perfect world, Ca' Dario pizza would be there...but minus the TV. Really excited to learn of the upcoming expansion of Ca' Dario, both the restaurant and pizzeria to Goleta...woohoo!!

Unpretentious with delicious pizza. We didn't have to wait for our table and we were treated well by the staff. Yummy flavor combos and extras like chili oil and garlic oil. Nice local beer and wine choices. We will be back to try the other pizzas for sure.
