    A lovely restaurant for an Italian meal - can be casual or very elegant. Food is delicious, our waiter was charming, fun, funny without being intrusive. One of our guests wanted something simple - Cacio e Pepe - which was not listed on the menu, but the waiter happily asked the chef to make the dish for her. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    Special night out with good friends and Ca’Dario is just quite simply the best spot on Coast Village Road. Time and again they serve up amazing Italian food with the best service. Fernando the GM is excellent and has the best staff - Marco / Vuk / Dubra….and the list goes on and on! Ca’Dario is quite simply one of my top 3 favorite restaurants in SB/Montecito!

    Absolutely delicious pizza, hands down! The spinach salad, calamari (didn’t there used to be little shrimps in it?) and carpaccio were all tasty except the carpaccio needs some work. Love the wine list and Al fresco seating🍕

    Clean and nice place. The food wasn’t as good as the reviews state. The risotto seafood was different and bland tasting . The pizza was dry but the pasta was good . The dessert was excellent . I ordered tiramisu and panna cotta . The waiters were very nice and helpful !
