Gorgeous Santa Barbara experience, 6/21/2018
Reviewer: jinelle from Santa Barbara, CA
Where does one go to have the most special truly Santa Barbara deluxe experience now? The Bella Vista hits all the right notes. Casual, elegant setting, lovely tables indoors and out and each item was prepared with special care to offer complex flavors, interests while leaving you wanting more. Yes, all of this come with high prices, this is a special occasion treat for dinner, lunch prices more accessible. But if you want to be reminded what Santa Barbara is all about in a richly historic setting with gracious service and ambiance, this is the place. Loved our appetizers - bison carpaccio and the kampache - loved the table side pasta -special Grana cheese "bowl" used for preparation along with fragrant peppercorns made this a rich, deeply satisfying main course. Desserts were fresh and flavorful. Portion size is small, but we intentionally wanted to eat light. Even if you just go for the special table side pasta, you will feel amply rewarded by this unusual culinary delight. Service was both friendly and professional .We have a treasure in our backyard. Enjoy it.
