Petrini's Italian Restaurant
14 W Calle Laureles, Santa Barbara
Petrini's Italian Restaurant - Santa Barbara, California
Great Italian Food and great people.
Delia's Comments: Petrini's is the Oldest Italian Restaurant in Santa Barbara. Since 1958, this has been a "local's favorite" kind of place for pizza and authentic Italian food.
Petrini's also makes their own sugar-free Italian Salad Dressing. For many years, their special dressing has been available for sale by the bottle.
Customer reviews are mixed. Some say the service can be bad. Some say the food is great. Others say there are better Italian Restaurants in Santa Barbara.
I've eaten at Petrini's. I always enjoy visiting historic establishments. Petrini's original location (14 W. Calle Laureles, 805.687.8888) is definitely a step back in time.
There are fancier and more expensive Italian Restaurants in town, if that's what you want. For moderately-priced Italian food, Petrini's is a good choice.
The second location is in Goleta, at 5711 Calle Real, 805.964.1200.
