Great food and cozy atmosphere – I went to this restaurant after a friend told me about it. It is really hard to impress me when it comes to Italian food, because I come from a family that makes it all from scratch! I have to say that the food is incredible! I loved everything and so did my husband. Our service was great and we were seated right away. We will be back here many more times I am sure.
Great meal at a great price – The guy who slammed the chicken marsala can stay away for good -- opens up a seat for those who know great northern Italian/Croatian food. Service can be slow at times, but the food consistently great in my opinion. My wife and I have been coming here for over 5 years. We will continue to do so. Highly recommended!
I was referred to the Broadway Location by a realtor from the area. I ordered the Chicken Marsala. One of my Italian staple foods. I know this dish well, make it myself at home. What returned was not Chicken Marsala. It had a somewhat orange sauce. As if they mixed Marsala with a Marinara sauce, thus forming a sauce that was inferior to both. When I asked the waitress about it; She stated this is the way Mama makes it. Well this is not the way my Mama made it. I do not think I will be going back again.
Editorial Review by Andrea Loera – Homey and inexpensive BYOB spot for homemade Italian cuisine with a Croatian touch.
Not bad – I ate at the Friendswood location last night and the food was excellent. The bread was fresh, the salad was great, and the entree (Spinach Fettucini) was awesome. The service was so, so. The waiter was new, so we had to remind him constantly to refill our drinks and our salad came out with the meal. I'm definitely going back though, the food is that good.
Mama needs to do all the cooking still – When Mama first opened Santa Barbara's and was doing all the cooking it was excellent. It is still great, but I don't think all the dishes have the taste they used to have. She still makes the best chicken caesar salad anywhere, but even it isn't as good as it used to be. She used to have the best bread, but over the years it has changed. She is still very small, but she is still good. I recommend this one for anyone that enjoys a good meal, even if a little pricey.
