This busy Stat Street restaurant has good food at a moderate price. The service was very slow at lunchtime. The food was good but nothing special. The Chicken was very salty but the Pasta Alfredo was very good as was the salad with Ceaser Dressing.

Located next to the Paseo Nuevo on State St., Pascucci Restaurant has a great location, especially when seated al fresco with a view of State St. The ambiance and decor is very reminiscent of a European restaurant, with a relaxed feel. Our server was very courteous and friendly. However, the menu rates as average tasting. The bread for our salad... More

We had supper here. The three cheese pasta was not very cheesy. There wasn't fresh Parmesan to go on top. We also had a risotto with broccoli and chicken.The rice was ok but not well seasoned nor cooked with stock. It was a pity. The service was good.

We asked one of the locals in the city for a suggestion, and we were thankful that he led us to this restaurant! I had some of the best gorgonzola dressing that I have ever tasted, and I have an Italian family background. The bread is amazing, and the portions are impressive. I shared a cheesecake dessert with my two... More

Family oriented with generous portions. Enjoyed their Fettuccini Alfredo w/shrimp & my husband had their fish special for the day, which he says was exceptional! Prices where reasonable.

We went to Santa Barbara just for fun and stopped at this restaurant for dinner. Loved the lasagna! It fresh, bubbly and cheesy! Yum! The restaurant has great decor and ambiance. Will definitely go back to try other menu items.

Went there on a Friday night around 8:30 p.m.; no wait time at all, although the place was quite busy. We loved the garlic bread and salads. We had 2 specials and one steak--all were very good. I especially enjoyed the Ravioli Sampler--every single one a bit difference. Son loved the bacon wrapped steak; husband enjoyed the chicken picatta. We... More

Lunch on a Saturday afternoon - very friendly staff, outstanding bread in the basket even better dipped in olive oil and cheese (already on the table). Sauce on the pasta wasn't too sweet, melted cheese on the lasagna just the right amount. All around excellent experience - wish I lived closer to make this my regular Italian spot...

We popped in here after a recommendation from our hotel. Very busy on a Saturday evening but we had cocktails at the bar and had a table after a short wait. Service was attentive and food good - nice place, would come again!
