Ca' Dario Cucina Italiana
Well I wish I could tell you how the food tasted but we never got any. We had a 7:00pm reservation and arrived a few minutes early. One waitress in particular kept walking by us in a hurry and never even acknowledged we were standing there. When the hostess did come over she seated us outside and the busboy brought us water.
After about 20-25 minutes we asked a person helping the table next to us if she could find our server because we haven’t even seen one or placed a drink order. She went inside and talked to someone because we could see her point at our table. After another 10 minutes still no one came by. We asked the same person if we had a server and she apologized but really couldn’t help us.
So after 35 minutes of drinking nothing but water and being ignored we got up and left.
I will give the Manager some credit to at least come out to the parking lot and apologize for what happened. He wanted us to come back and he would take care of us. But after the poor service up to that point we didn’t feel like giving them another chance.
I was really looking forward to some good Italian food and wine but I unfortunately I can’t tell you how the food taste because we never got any.
But the sparkling water we ordered was good...
a jewel of a restaurant. the food is consistently delicious. the staff is friendly and quick to respond to requests. i highly recommend.
Located in a strip mall but had a really nice patio out the back so don't be put off. The service was great and very friendly.
Consistently good food and service. The specials are usually great especially the seafood.
Authentic Tuscan food with so much to chose from. Consistent and excellent service!
What a great spot. Sat on the back patio (outside only d/t COVID) for our anniversary. Service was great, apps, entrees were great as well. 1st time @ this restaurant and it's definitely a 'highly recommend'
Always a treat to visit ca Dario. The food is outstanding as is the service. A great value and one of the best Italian restaurants you will ever find.
Highly recommend the rib eye steak! The Tuscan beans were to die for too.
Good food excellent service
It was my first time here, I will certainly be back. It was a terrific experience!
Scrumptious food. Perfect service. We’ll be back!
I really wanted to like this place. Restaurant staff was professional, welcoming, and helpful. Outdoor seating in the back yard looked cute and cozy. But the food was very disappointing. I ordered three different pizzas: margarita, carbonara, and picante. All three were extremely oily to begin with (and it wasn’t because of fresh olive oil topping or anything...). Carbonara pizza was a bacon and cheese pizza with a sunny side up egg on top... very odd presentation and the egg really wasn’t incorporated in to the flavor. Margarita was particularly disappointing - tasted and looked like a gas station pizza. I really wished I liked this place more (it’s really the only restaurant in a Goleta that’s on Open Table) but I don’t recommend this place.
The food is absolutely AMAZING! We really enjoyed their pasta dishes. I would recommend this place to anyone in the Goleta/Santa Barbara area. Will definitely be visiting the next time I’m in the area.
Dined here for a casual dinner out. The patio was quaint and the service was excellent. We all enjoyed our meal as the food was very delicious. I would eat here again and frequently if we lived in the area.
I loved the food and service!
Delicious food and excellent service!
Great pasta, excellent service
We ate outside which was cool and pleasant. Servers were courteous and helpful and masked as were we, except for eating. The food was wonderful as always and a perfect respite in this time of trying to avoid the pandemic.
Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor on a recent visit to Santa Barbara, and the recommendations were spot on. Great food, cozy lovely spot. Will definitely be back on our next trip to the area.
It was great I had 7 of my brothers the food was great and we had a blast. Thank You for your served. See ya next time!!
Wonderful meal! We split a Caesar salad and then had our own entrees. Service was cheerful and attentive, and the food was superbly prepared.
Would definitely recommend Ca’dario!
Great food. I got the quail and she got the seafood risotto. Awesome experience with nice staff.
Delicious food. Super service. Nice seating and not crowded.
We loved the food and excellent service.
Ca’ Dario in downtown SB is one of my favorite places to eat. Ambiance (sports on TV?) and service was not as good. Food was great.
Another outstanding experience. I had an incredible swordfish dish. Others enjoyed the raviolis, lamb chops and fuccilli! Everything was superb
We set by the door trying to be more quiet and less in the middle of the walk aerea and found our self freezing cold .. our waiter was excellent.. and pizza was good
We eat here often because the quality of the food is always good , the servers recognize you and th services is excellent.
Great food & terrific service.
I was looking for a place to have dinner with my family for my birthday and we decided on Ca Dario. Everyone’s plates were amazing, the service was good, and a lovely server sang happy birthday to me in Italian for my birthday making it that more special.
Great ambiance, food and service.
Always great food and service. Francesca was an amazing server,
Perfect evening. We enjoy everything about the restaurant
Have been there many times. It was valentines day. They forgot our salad and rolls. Main course was okay. Lots of people. This place is way better than this. Took salad off of bill and gave us desert. Will be better next time.
Good food but a little expense for a strip mall in Goleta.
Best Italian food in Goleta!!! Marco is the best Server in town!
Another great dinner at Ca’Dario. Tonight I had the Lamb chops, cooked perfectly with spinach and roasted potatoes. No place does it better
Food was tasteless. Service was very good. Our server was a woman and she was terrific.
Excellent very authentic Italian trattoria style of dinning , service is really great!
Great food and service , will be back soon , among the best in the Santa Barbara area .
