Food exceeded my expectations, ambience was exactly what we were looking for, casual but nice, comfortable, inviting. Great staff, friendly kind. We left very full and happy. I can’t believe it took me 20 years to finally check it out!
We got married here so it’s always lovely to come back! We love the patio and they were super accommodating during these strange times!
We love the food here! The service is always friendly and accomidating. I haven't tried anything on the menu that I didn't end up just loving!! Thanks Arnoldi's!!
Loved this restaurant. I listened to the waiter’s suggestions and ordered the spaghetti frutti de mare. It was delicious. Next time I’ll save room for dessert.
Great service. Delicious food.
Terrific night out. Lovely patio and nice music. Delicious menu and food. Get the bruchetta too.
This place is great as always. I love the back patio and the service is always awesome.
My experience; While somehow coming across as a more upscale establishment during the Coronavirus pandemic, the more beautiful entrees were not more flavorful than the ones I recall from previous outings. Friendly, enthusiastic staff and a tranquil patio made for an overall nice visit
Wonderful service, food and experience and glad to have found your restaurant being that I’m from out of town and this made my daughters birthday celebration very special!
Great time. Outdoor dining was great. Love this restaurant!
They do a nice job. Eating in the patio/bocce ball court is fine.
Arnoldi's has a very relaxed but stylish atmosphere especially at night with the outdoor fireplace and string lights, the service was 5 star in a very authentic way, and the food and drinks were outstanding. I can't wait until bocce ball comes back after covid restrictions are lifted!
Outdoor dining only in the patio only but it is as fine as outdoor dining was always available pre COVID service and food excellent
Highly recommend this restaurant
Excellent service, fresh ingredients, authentic, delicious
Long time SB staple. They have really turned their back area into an awesome safe feeling dining spot in this COVID time. Great food and service as usual!
Great place. We went for the first time. Not much to look at from the outside, but once you enter you are welcomed by great staff and amazing food. A must try.
Excellent food and ambiance considering these Covid limitations. Lovely outdoor dining available.
Attentive service and generous, delicious portions of pasta with all social distancing and Covid preventative measures in place. Happy to support this longtime Santa Barbara stalwart.
It was the BEST Chicken Piccata I've ever had!! Great service and food. I would just recommend putting on some table cloths, candles and flowers to spruce up the outdoor patio. We love Arnoldis and will be back!!
Birthday celebrations. Really fantastic job with COVID preparations. Felt very safe!! Delicious food!! Great service!!
Very lovely outside dining area. Staff was so kind and efficient. Will return next trip to Santa Barbara.
Arnoldi's is consistently outstanding as it has been for years and years. The food is delicious, the atmosphere for dinner on the patio is very romantic and relaxing, the staff are top drawer always, you feel welcome from the minute you enter the front door. It is a Santa Barbara treasure and in the many years that I have come to Arnoldi's I have never had less than a five star evening. And the desserts are original and luscious. As for the prices, they are surprisingly reasonable. In other words, they do everything right.
Wonderful dining experience always! Delicious food and very friendly staff.
Relaxing outdoor atmosphere with classic Italian cuisine! Perfect place unwind and enjoy cocktails!
Felt good to be there, extreme care shown for CV safety, much appreciated.
Best local restaurant! Little secret neighborhood treasure!
Great service especially during Covid. Best arabiatta sauce I’ve ever had.
We always enjoy going, we love the outdoor venue, love the patio with the lights. Always a wonderful time. Staff very friendly and attentive. Will be dining there again, when we go to Santa Barbara
Loved our meal. Awesome food!!!
We LOVE Arnoldi's and were so happy to make it our first endeavor out of the house post-quarantine. They are taking health precautions seriously which I really, really appreciate. You keep your pen used to sign the check, all waiters wear masks, and there is ample distance between tables (we sat outside). Not to mention, the food was and is always AMAZING.
We were very impressed with the outside dining situation at Arnoli's in regards to the social distancing and the use of masks on servers. The tables were spaced more than 6 feet apart. Our noise level was rather high due to a large graduation party seated next to us. We did not mind too much. The food was very good as was the service. It was my husbands birthday and he was given a nice piece of cake. We will return again soon even if we do not have anything to celebrate.
We went to Arnoldi’s 2 days after they re-opened. We entered the outside patio dining thru the side gate, so didn’t even enter the restaurant indoor dining area. The staff was adhering to all protocol guidelines issued. The tables outside were spaced far from each other, the menu was a paper menu and the waiters wore masks at all times. Food was excellent, I had the Salmon Alla Griglia. So happy to be able to dine out again. Thank you!
Great food and service, it was just kind of loud. We will definitely be back!
Nice local SB place for outdoor dining, event in the cooler weather.
Eggplant in the eggplant Parmesan was hard, difficult to chew and tasteless. Portions were generous.. almost too much so.
Old school Italian in a fabulous setting. Can’t wait to return
We had a BLACK GLOVE in are salad !
How close is the garbage can to the salad bowl?
The waiter took forever to get are check and then only took off 1 glass of wine for the gross glove in are salad.
Will never return !
Food was great, especially the Milanese!
Service is at this place is sooooooooooo slow, this has been an ongoing problem for a while now. The original owners children (who are now running the restaurant-GREAT people) have been told about this problem multiple times (by different patrons) but nothing is improving. Food is good but waiting for over an hour for a simple meal (and it's not like it is super busy) is just too much.
