Bucatini is a Santa Barbara gem. It offers an impressively large and varied menu. Lots of ambience ~ lots of wine bottles on shelves surrounding the interior portion of the restaurant. The fuselli with fresh veggies and aged ricotta was excellent. The bruschetta was the best I've ever had. We didn't feel hurried at all, and enjoyed a long, leisurely dinner...what a refreshing change. Our servers were receptive, patient, and very friendly. The food, service, decor...it all comes together at Bucatini.
Pros: extensive menu , tasty & affordable, outdoor seating
Cons: a bit cramped inside, breezy even inside
