Great spot - excellent welcome and service. Good menu - we had tuna cones, squash flowers, then both had the scallops. All first class. 4 glasses of wine. Bill was $200 including service for 2 of us. Very enjoyable.

The highest quality dinner, provided as a 'take-out' meal! The hostess was very pleasant to me, even discussing the 'history' of the site!

We joined friends for dinner and weren't disappointed. Fish, beef and pasta among our group...all excellent. A bit pricey, but hey, it's Santa Barbara. One tip, their "bar brand" gin is New Amsterdam. It makes a bizarre tasting martini...had to return it.

The dinner menu is really above the average Italian for Santa Barbara. I’ve been there several times. However, the last time I was there, a few months ago, the service was terrible, and the waiter was rude. After waiting almost 45 minutes for our meal...More

Great clubby atmosphere, excellent menu. Food ranges from pretty good to really good. There is a waiter we keep getting who insists on making himself part of our evening. Instead of mentioning specials, he virtually reads us the menu with running commentary on his preferences...More

We didn't know what to expect from Toma, but we were pleasantly surprised. It started off great with some fresh bread and salted butter, was delicious. We found a nice Jaffurs Syrah, a local wine at a reasonable value. We shared the margerita flatbread to...More
