Just back from Italy, we checked in on this place. They have a proper pizza oven, gas-fired, not wood-burning. A small number of beers on tap and a small wine list of Italian and Santa Barbara area wines. The Margherita pizza conformed to the archetype, although I would have preferred some more attention to preparation of the dough (it tended... More

Got into Santa Barbara earlier in the day checked out the pier which is worth the wonder then looked for food / pizza for the evening. Read the local guide which was in our hotel Ca Dario Pizzeria seemed a viable option so we got a taxi there. Taxi driver mentioned not a place he would eat, but in the... More

Pizza night. We chose Ca'Dario! We ordered 2 pizza's. The Salsiccia Nostrana and The Quattro Stagioni. Both were awesome. Beer and a nice wine selection to compliment your slice. Enjoy

There is a great selection of pizzas and other Italian dishes. It is an active location and if you sit at the bar there are people coming in to pickup take-out orders. It is recommended that you sit at a table to better enjoy the meal. The pizza is great, but there are also some excellent salad & lasagna choices.

4 of us ordered 2 different pizzas and both were good, served sliced in a way that one could essay separate it from the whole; also it was hot and really tasty with balanced spices, thin crust and enough for 4.

Not sure why they call themselves a pizzeria. I've eaten there over 15 times over the years and I've never once had pizza. The food is outstanding. Tastes like homemade Italian no matter what you order. It can be a bit tight seating wise (bumping elbows with people at the next table) but I think that attests to how popular... More

Eggplant parmigiana was great. Pizza vegetariana was very tasty. Warm, friendly, casual atmosphere. Great wine selection. Reasonable prices. I would definitely go againl

It was getting late and we wanted to feed the family quickly while on a visit to Santa Barbara. We ran into this little restaurant and it smelled good so we decided to give it a try. The pizza is fired in a pizza oven made to order. They have all kinds of gourmet combinations of pizza and they are... More

We were driving through Santa Barbara, California and we stopped for gas. I asked the attendant what type of food, I said, "Italian" and he's referred me to this charming place and was a quaint little restaurant that appeared to be straight from Italy. Cloth covered tables and napkins. We were 20 minutes early, but they seated us and gave... More

Service was good at this restaurant, however if you are after a traditional pizza this is not the place to go. If you are after more of a gourmet style pizza then by all means try here. My husband and I were very disappointed with the pizza we had.
