I loved this place, too bad they moved, 5/28/2007
Reviewer: Greg from Santa Barbara
I love this place, i've eaten countless meals here during lunchtime in the last few years. The bread is unbelievable! Tuan, his wife and family, and his workers are the nicest people you'll ever meet. I liked they're "Sub" sandos. I'll miss all of you guys, they merged this location into their Goleta location. The other reveiwer was right, if you go anywhere else in town and find good bread, these guys made it.

not ITALIAN, 4/8/2006
Reviewer: chris from goleta,ca
OKay since when did a "MAPLE BAR" become an Italian baked good? Where are the cannolis? croissants? where's the cappucino...espresso? where's the ciabatta bread or fruit tart? Not bad for american baked goods but not good to trick people with the name

Great food & great people, 2/8/2006
Reviewer: Joe Cox from Carpinteria, CA
I just wanted to mention that not only does the Italian Bakery have great food (I love the sandwiches), but the organization is also an awesome patron of the local community. I work for a local nonprofit and we have been faithfully supported by the Italian Bakery for years. It's one of those things that they might not brag about themselves, but it is important that you know that the Italian Bakery is a business with a heart~

Best Maple Bar in Town, 8/4/2005
Reviewer: Jeffrey Nerdin from Santa Barbara
I have considered myself a connoisseur of maple bars ever since my third grade classmate Steve Lane (rest in peace) used to bring his mom's fresh maple bars to school on his birthday. I had one of Tuan Luu's maple bars at Italian Bakery on State Street this morning and was more than impressed. It is my firm opinion that Tuan makes the best maple bars in town. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to try the many other appetizing choices in his display case, but they all looked great and the smell of the bread from the ovens in back was mouthwatering. Tuan and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Italian Bakery to anyone looking for top quality bakery items. I know I'll be back!

bread service, 4/11/2005
Reviewer: jereme from west side. santa barbara
this place is the best ever. tuan, the owner is a really cool guy. whenever i go in to get lunch or a coffee and donut tuan is so friendly. the sandwiches are the bomb and the bread is always fresh. i know for a fact that many of the deli´s and sandwich joints that you love get there bread from tuan. that is why they are so good. it´s all about the bread.
