Treated friends to a delicious dinner with large portions that finally satisfied a recently transplanted Jersey Boy. His search is over for now for good home-cooked Italian food without West Coast prices. Service was friendly and helpful despite the bustling Saturday night. Started with grilled asparagus with prosciutto, bruschetta and an antipasto selection of specialty cured meats. Friends had branzino,... More

The service and good are wonderful here. The only bad parts are how noisy the bar area is and they don't have,gluten free pasta. I always get the Zuppa de Pesce. It's so flavorful and non of the seafood is overcooked. My husband and our friends love the food also and have tried a number of items and all were... More

Attractive space and staff. Noisy. Full bar with bartender tossing bottles about like Tom Cruise in Cocktails. Seemed to like his job. Crepe appetizer was too salty. Ceasar salad did have anchovies but the dressing seemed to have mayo and nothing piquant going on. The romaine lettuce was all ribs, and the croutons were hard. I made an appetizer into... More

This was a quick meal with an hour between scheduled events, and the restaurant delivered beautifully. The Caprese salad was perhaps not as beautifully presented as that in the nearby Olio e Limone, but it was delicious and was less expensive, as was the soup of the day. The chicken and salmon dinners were very pleasant, and the braised baby... More

We came for dinner on a Monday night, didn't have reservations, big mistake! The restaurant was packed. There is a good reason for the crowds, the food is the most amazing Italian I've ever eaten. I thought you couldn't get better Italian food than Italy but Trattoria Vittoria proved me wrong. I had Gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce. The gnocchi was... More

My fiancé and I wanted a special dinner for our last night in Santa Barbara, and we decided on Trattoria Vittoria because it was a foggy, cool evening and some comforting Italian food sounded perfect! We couldn't have been happier with our meal. The service was good and the comfortable restaurant was buzzing with families enjoying their meals. It was... More

Not often you go to a crowded and loud restaurant and can't wait to come back. The atmosphere just works!!! The staff know their role and the expected level of service. The food was great. The dishes did vary somewhat in size. Some really large and some in the smaller side.

Well we were greeted by someone who may have been an owner or just a zealous Italian host that was a bit rough around the edges. We got there when they opened and he tried to shove us in the corner with only one other couple in the place. After we arranged for a little better seating (keep in mind... More

We had dinner here and were disappointed. We made reservations ahead of time and they stuck us back in the corner. Literally, the corner. A customer had to stand up and move so we could get around his table to get back to ours. There we were forgotten for quite a while until we asked the gentleman who got us... More
