Bucatini Ristorante and Trattoria
Bucatini Ristorante & Trattoria
Amidst a plethora of Italian restaurants in Santa Barbara, Downtown’s Bucatini Ristorante and Trattoria stands out from the rest with its authentic Italian cuisine. There is a large outside patio, shaded by palm trees and an awning, perfect for people watching and taking in the life of Santa Barbara in a relaxed environment. The patio is available for parties of six or more guests and offers a fun ambiance with candles and flowers on each table.
This is the perfect venue for engagement parties,rehearsal dinners, birthday bashes, work functions, and holiday parties. Decorated with dark wood furniture and cream colored walls, the small rustic dining room includes an open kitchen that is complete with a wood fire pizza oven to create the perfect crispy crust on your pizza.
The menu offers an assortment of fresh seafood and meats, Bucatini has a dish for even the most discerning taste palette. Brought up in a seafood loving family, my favorite dish is the Linguine alle Vongole with its lightly sauced pasta that doesn’t override the natural taste of the clams.
