My family has been a fan of this restaurant for the past twenty years. I can't even remember how many family, birthday or anniversary lunches and dinners we have at this place. Service has always been great. The quality of food is always top-notch and the ambiance is relaxed and welcoming. Every item on the menu is great. Public and... More

We were in town on business and Cafe Santorini is within walking distance of our room (2 blocks). They have a happy hour at the bar only so we started with a glass of nice Pinot Grigio at the bar with the Grilled Calamari appetizer. The bartender, Dino was friendly and as we talked and watched the action on this... More

Plentiful, delicious lunch (and Dinner) meals served either on the outdoor roof-top patio or indoors. This upscale Italian & Mediterranean restaurant combines "old world" professional service and European atmosphere with very tasty & plentiful cuisine. My grilled vegetable plate was delicious. The hot bread slices were irresistible as well. Our guests enjoyed their salads & chicken cutlet. Santorini's, truly, is... More

We were first served food that was not what we ordered. The server took it away, ten minutes later we saw the table right next to us get the exact same order. Our food was greasy and heavy. It was very disappointing after the wonderful reviews we read.

A very lovely restaurant in Old Town Pasadena. Both the food and service were excellent. We were seated on the outside patio. Our server noticed when the setting sun was reflecting onto our faces and adjusted the shades without being asked. Then, as a cool breeze started, he further lowered the shades so we were comfortable. Our party enjoyed the... More

Six of us went to a "pre" theater dinner. Lovely elavated outdoor roof setting. Great food and excellent service. Never found elevator. Could be difficult if you can't climb stairs.

If you're looking for an outstanding Risotto, and in the heart of Pasadena Ca, look no further. Cafe Santorini is the answer...... We started with the walk upstairs, as the pulse of the restaurant is on the second floor. It's busy but fun, all tables full of eager diners, as well as an open kitchen concept and bar right in...

We had a really nice dinner sitting out on the outdoor deck. Starting with the bread, which is cheezy and crispy; a delicious caprese salad appetizer; entrees with plenty of vegetables and yummy dessert, we enjoyed it all. Attentive service, also.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner on the rooftop patio. The kebab plates were delicious. The service was absolutely perfect as well. Highly recommend!

On a chilly day, we sat outside in their enclosed patio with heaters running. It was very pleasant out there. The food was all very flavorful and attractively presented. The hummus was as good as I've ever tasted. The service was professional but not very friendly. I would go back though, because the food really was excellent.
