Wonderful service, ambience, experience..., 3/12/2014
Reviewer: Bethany from Santa Barbara, CA
My husband took me here to celebrate my birthday and it was nothing short of amazing. Although we had reservations, we opted to sit in the lounge next to the fireplace. The setting was beautiful. Nick, the bartender, took amazing care of us. From multiple spot-on recommendations for food choices, to providing tastes before wine purchases, to an purely genuinely friendly service, we were incredibly pleased. Everyone, from the hostess who opened the door upon our arrival and departure, to the expos delivering the food to our table, were above and beyond friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We will be back soon, and with friends. Thank you!

I'm wondering if Mattei's is under new ownership?! Everything we loved about Mattei's has changed and we're just wondering why?

My new favorite restaurant!, 10/18/2013
Reviewer: Jen from Carpinteria, ca
I went to Mattei's yesterday for an event and had both lunch and dinner there... Both were delicious and among the best meals I've ever had in the Santa Barbara area. Lunch was outside in their beautiful garden, with pizzas from their wood fire pizza oven... Their "bee sting" pizza with chiles and honey was unusual and completely addictive.... Dinner was in the restaurant, and everything we had was amazing... The cote de boeuf was one of the best steak dishes I've ever had. I was told they're not doing the pizzas yet on a regular basis, but as soon as they are... I'll be heading back up there.... It's more than worth the drive from SB.
