I rarely leave bad reviews but the meatballs were rubbery, lentil mushroom soup was cold. Zucchini flowers were great. Took our daughter here for her 17th birthday last night and it was a disappointment and expensive.
Wonderful service, delicious food !
Wow! Great first experience & everyone loved their meals!
It f doesn’t get better than Ca Dario ! Goleta, Victoria , montecito ! All 3 will deliver superlative Food, ambiance, and service i❤️
Always great in every way
Marco our waiter made wonderful recommendations for specialities and wine. Loved the spinach raviolis, bruschetta, artichokes and eggplant parmigiana appetizers! Great authentic Italian food. Delicious Choc dessert with vanilla ice cream and berries!
Nice spot for a date night. The food was amazing, especially the bread.
Awesome level of service and food was delicious!
Great food and service. I made a reservation for 3 and my wife had to cancel last minute, so when I checked in and told the host, he wanted to give me a very small 2-top bar-table just outside the doorway of a barber shop. I asked why I couldn't have the table originally reserved for the 3 of us and promised to spend as much as 3 people. He was very unfriendly....not the person that should be interacting with customers as soon as they arrive.
Fortunately, we had a extremely friendly, very competent server and she made for a delightful and fantastic experience. The food was fantastic. It couldn't have been better....except for the host.
Dining outside at Ca' Dario in Montecito is such a pleasure! Beautiful ambiance, even though you are right on the main road! There were 5 of us, and each meal was wonderful! I have to say that the salads were a bit pathetic, and quite basic, so they were not part of my review. Buyer beware on those items.
Main courses from pastas to veal to fresh fish were all fabulous though! The main restaurant in Santa Barbara is extremely noisy, so being able to dine outside in a large open and lovely area in Montecito is wonderful!
Love love love Ca Dario Montecito. Sitting outside is fabulous. Marco and Dubra are the best!!!!
We lunched out of doors with friends—a party of 4. We specifically asked to be seated in an area served by Angel, a long-time favorite waiter. Service was terrific, which is Angel’s typical standard. Food choices ranged from pastas to chicken salad. Everything was perfectly prepared and presented. We paired lunch with a wonderful bottle of Gavi—perfectly chilled and presented. We couldn’t have been more pleased.
Incredible experience - wonderful staff, food was so good, and overall experience was quality.
The food was terrific and the outdoor dining was great. Service was on the slow side, but, for benefit of the doubt, post-pandemic things have been challenging everywhere.
Great food! Great staff! Marco, Alex and Dubra make the experience special. The best salmon in town!
Always Love the ambience and service! Exceptional tonight.
Great food. Great service.
Just lovely outdoor patio. Great food and very friendly efficient service.
We had a lovely time. Great patio with friendly servers and delicious food. Relaxing atmosphere to spend time with friends. We have a great time together!!
The desserts were AMAZING!
Fabulous food and service and location. Can’t wait to go back
What a beautiful meal! Ask and they can make it. (All things Italian.) I’m gluten free, and they made me a delicious Grilled Polenta with Amatriciana sauce. It was fantastic. (Amatriciana is on the lunch menu. But they will make it for you at dinner.) The wine list is excellent and if you don’t want a full glass of wine, ask for a half glass as I did after my first full glass. Perfection. And what’s not to love about Affogato? Nothing! Theirs is one of the best. Just the right glass to serve it in so you get just the perfect proportions of espresso and ice cream. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. As well knowledgeable and courteous. Reservations are suggested as it does get full quickly. They have a lot of outdoor tables. My suggestion is to go between 5:30pm-7:30pm as it is still light out. Magnificent. What a wonderful addition to Coast Village Road. 5 Stars.
We love Ca’ Dario Montecito and Dario is our good friend.9
Normally I am not writing reviews, but I am still so mad with the hostess! It's the second time we made our reservation with open table (2 days in advance) and the second time we had NO table ready for us. We had to wait almost 30 minutes this time for our table. The hostess was very unfriendly and turned away during speaking with me, she was very stressed and could not handle the situation that there was no table for us. Unfortunately, we could not make any other reservations at other restaurants on short notice so we stayed.
Food was great, and our service for the rest of the evening as well.
I ALWAYS ENJOY EATING AT CA DARIO IN MONTECITO.THE FOOD AND SERVICE IS EXCELLENT.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
Always fabulous one of my favorite places ….food, service, wine it’s all good!!!
Some of the best food in Santa batbara
Great food and service. Gluten free pizza is as good as in Italy!
Good food, service was excellent.
Great food that doesn't disappoint. Artichoke cooked perfect, pasta and risotto specials were amazing.
Ca Dario's Montecito location continues the tradition of great food and service established at their other locations. They will do vegan versions of many dishes if you ask.
A tip - there is plenty of parking in a lot behind the restaurant accessed by a driveway on the east side of the building or via Coast Village Circle.
As always a lovely spot with good food. A great addition to Montecito
Great food, service and value.
Very good menu selections. Handled a large group of 11 patrons easily. Service was very good. Quality of food---1st class
We love the Montecito location. Great service and food. One of our favorite places to eat.
Food was outstanding! Exceeded expectations. Recommend the Ravioli. Service was somewhat disappointing. Intermittent gaps of checking in with us was noticeable. Birthday celebration noted when reservation was made. No mention of it by waiter. Hostess should have communicated this to the waiter. Or, the waiter could have asked if we were celebrating anything, but I think the hostess should have been responsible for the communication. I saw it noted in the reservation when we checked in.
The food and the service with Poncho was amazing.
Great spot outside, great food, great service. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and they brought desserts. Very special, wonderful dinner!
Love it always
