As usual the food and service were good to excellent.
If the salad and the bruschetta bread were a little to “soggy” to our taste, “they nevertheless tasted good. Our main courses, rack of lamb and veal, were excellent and as requested, cooked to the perfect level of doneness. As for the service it was very professional, friendly and non-invasive. Overall we had an excellent evening and we certainly recommend this restaurant.
The food is always very good. The service is now terrible. No one seems to know what to do. The old help was wonderful. The current team needs training.
We had a wonderful meal and the staff was very nice
If you are a local, you know this restaurant is the place to go for great italian food.
A beautiful, intimate, experience. We will definitely be back again!
First time customers and we were extremely satisfied. We will definitely return when in Santa Barbara💖
The grilled white asparagus was amazing! And I never had so many vongole in my spaghetti con vongole—excellent!
We had a good time at the restaurant, especially for the service of the staff. Food was good and the short wine list too. Appropriate location close to the main street in Santa Barbara.
Ca'Dario has always been one of my favorite places to eat. The food is always good as is the service.
The birthday dinner was very nice. It was great to be back with all tables full again!
The service was prompt and attentive. The food from soup to salad to main courses were excellent both in taste and size of portion. We would highly recommend this reastaurant!
Everything was perfect!
This is my favorite Italian place in Santa Barbara.
Cozy and casual but first class service and food. Great wine selection too!
Amazing rack of lamb - the best in Santa Barbara!
This was my wife and I's first time dining at a restaurant since the start of the Pandemic. Ca''Dario had converted about 3 parking spots in front of the restaurant into outdoor space.
I hope they can keep that outdoor space after the pandemic is over because it really gave a European feel to the dining experience and was far better than the cramped tightly packed interior pre-pandemic.
The food itself was great. We both had filled pasta dishes and the pasta itself was clearly freshly made and the sauces were both excellent. We ordered extra bread to sop it all up.
Overall it was a great experience and highly recommended to anyone looking for an Italian restaurant.
The host was extremely patient as I changed my mind twice about our seating, then service and food quality was on point the whole evening. Excellent experience I would highly recommend!
Food and service outstanding. Was promised a table by the window, but was taken by others when we got there. Table for 6 was small and crowded, would have been better for 4. Nevertheless, great food and service. Will return!
Food is old school fabulous and staff were warm and friendly.
Food not as good as it used to be.
Such great service and outstanding food.
Simply wonderful. Everything myself and friends ordered was mouth watering good. It’s much more of a local spot than the crowds on State and that made it much more enjoyable
Always the best Italian food, service and environment! Louis and Chewy (SP?) are my favorites and despite the tough times of Covid they have remained on staff which in my opinion is the best reason to keep coming back!
super awesome great wonderful fantastic super fraga listic
Been here a few times and I always leave feeling like it could have been better for the money. We had issues with 3 of the dishes we ordered. The gnocchi was undercooked and goopy and the server told us that’s how it’s supposed to be... Um ok. Buffalo mozzarella tasted like I bought it prepackaged as the grocery store. Chicken dish was bland and not memorable.
Just as good as it was 11 years ago! Hopefully it won’t be that long til we come back!

Great food, but service was slow. I don’t think they expected a busy Monday evening during Spring Break.
We enjoyed our dinner after wine tasting in Santa Ynez, the food was very good and the service was excellent. The prices were moderate and we would go back.
Definitely a top 10 CA restaurant for authentic Italian cuisine. Their ravioli is to die for! My fiancée and I love dining at Ca’Dario whenever we are visiting Santa Barbara.
The food is always excellent followed by great service.
Outdoor dining in their constructed space was good.
The best. Always so good. Consistently delivers on service and the for is sooooo good!
While we were sitting basically in the street, it wasn't that bad! They are making the most of a bad situation and we are happy to support them. As always, the food is excellent and authentic.
We had just finished dinner sitting outside on the sidewalk when it started raining. Then the hail started coming down, the staff (Tony) had all customers come inside the restaurant. Lived in S.B. My entire life and have never seen that much hail/snow come down in town. What a great experience!
We enjoyed a long lunch in the beautifully designed outdoor seating, felt completely safe during COVID and the food was delicious and service amazing.
We had a pleasant evening, the service is friendly, they do the best they can setting up outside. I don’t want to say this place is bad. It’s OK. It’s just like most average Italian places. Nothing stands out as truly special or amazing. The Salad was fine, tortellini ok, veal chop just ok, tiramisu good. Most people like Italian restaurants just like this. I would like them to set the bar a little higher
Outdoor dining in the cold is never a great experience but they're doing their best. The food here was wonderful. The dessert was mediocre as it was obviously not fresh. But everything else was excellent. Service was spotty but dutiful.
Server was so kind, polite and helpful. Would go again.
One of the best meals we have had in Santa Barbara... and that is saying a lot! Food was amazing, and they styled up their outdoor space with a chandelier... can’t wait to go back!
Incredible food! So authentic and savory! Delicious. I live in Santa Monica and will be driving back up soon to enjoy another amazing meal!!!
Dinner was delicious, our waiter was attentive and fun. We'll be going back soon!
