Locally Owned & operated

Located in the historic Paseo Nuevo Mall in downtown Santa Barbara, we have been serving fresh, great tasting food for over 15 years. 

We feature fresh and healthy salads alongside unique and delicious pasta dishes using only the freshest ingredients and homemade recipes. 

We also have large, tasty sandwiches that come served with our classic pasta salad. Come in and try our legendary New England Style Clam Chowder or our traditional Vegetable Minestrone.

Wash down the great food with some local wine and beer whilst enjoying the atmosphere on our outside terrace.
