We have been dining here for 4 years intermittently. When we are in town we are here at least twice a week. In all fairness we compare our experience here to Lucky's which is up the street. While the menu at Tre Lune is more extensive and anything Italian appealing to us it has been our experience that we fell much more welcomed and appreciated at Lucky's. The hostess and service is hit or miss. We love Luciana to serve us and feel Marissa would be an excellent server. Come here for the food not for any consistent 'welcome'; aside from Marissa. Porterhouse steak perfect, Spaghetti and meatballs perfect. Veal Parmesan superb.

Amazing food and even better service!

They were out of calamari so instead for appetizer we had

MELANZANE ALLA PARMIGIANA- the cheese was perfect and the marinara sauce is the best ever

For mains we had:

CANNELLONI AL FORNO- chicken had a great flavor and the sauce was so creamy

TORTELLONI ALLE NOCI- one of the best pastas I ever had! So unique. The walnut sauce was just the right amount of
creamy


Go to this restaurant!! Food was amazing! We will be back

Spectacular! We have dined here several times. We know what we want to order before we even arrive! So, that makes life easier for the waitstaff. Excellent wine selection, every dish wins over the last we have tried here! Do not miss this gem, even if you are in town for just a couple of days.

OK, this is painful as this has been one of our favorites for many years. That said, the last 3 times we have been there for early dinner, the service has been what one might call inattentive. We get seated right away and then we sit and sit some more. We have had to flag down a bus person each of the last 3 visits to get bread and water. It seems as if there is confusion between the hours of 5:30 and 6 pm as to which table is assigned to which server. Good grief, there are servers running all over the place, it just should not be that difficult to get waited on. The next problem is that usually, a lot of tables fill up around 6pm and the kitchen gets overwhelmed. The last 3 times we were at the restaurant for more than 90 minutes. We don’t order salads or dessert and usually bring our own wine. The wait for entrees is way too long.The one time we did order dessert, we waited over 15 minutes and finally told our server we would take it to go. The final and most frustrating challenge is getting the check. Eeegads! When the wine glasses are empty, the bus person has cleared the table and a diner’s head is on a constant swivel, what else does one have to do to get the check? Every single time, we have had to flag down a bus person to get our server to bring the check. I am sorry; but as much as we love this place, we are taking it off our list of favorites.

I've had excellent meals here but last night I guess we made unfortunate choices. The shrimp in two dishes were extremely tough. A special pasta with mushrooms had an oddly sweet sauce and the mushrooms were slimy and sandy. Their INSALATA di CRESCIONE was super as usual.

We met our family here for lunch ( half way between our home in LA and their home in SLO) and I was very happy I chose this restaurant! We've never been here before or dined in Montecito before, but it was perfect! Service was excellent, setting was perfect and most of all food was amazing. I got roast chicken with roasted vegetables and my husband got lasagna. Both very good and generous serving. The complimentary bread basket with oil, vinegar and olives also very good. Thank you so much for a memorable meal!

Our dinner was one of the best experiences of food quality and flavors we have ever had in our lives. We had been to Tre Lune 2 other times but this particular 3rd time was the absolute “ charm”!

Of many Italian dinners we have had in Italy and other parts of the world Tre Lune once again did not disappoint.

We will come back many times we are certain .....

Average quality Montecito price. No one from the chef to the service staff is Italian. Very small inside and outdoor seating is mixed with downtown foot traffic. Service is slow and be prepare to repeat all your requests. Unless you are local they treat you as you will never return anyway. Many far superior choices within 50 yards.

Service was horrible! We sat down at our table. First I had asked several times to get water to the table. Then we finally placed our order. A large group arrived to the table next to us. After some time the large group received their orders for food. We are still waiting and apparently the waiter never came back to our table. When I acquired about our food from the waiter when the food showed up. The food was lukewarm and apparently has been sitting in the kitchen for a long time. Management needs to do training. There was plenty of staff running around but for some reason we were just left in the corner with no attention from staff. What a disappointment.
