We had a lovely evening at Tre Lune while visiting the area for the first time from Maine. Every part of our meal was exceptional! What made our experience particularly special was our wonderful server! She was so welcoming and went above and beyond to make everything perfect. She knew the menu in great detail, but equally important was her genuine warm spirit.

I was extraordinarily impressed with my first visit at Tre Lune, as the food and service - as well as the menu choices - were among the best I've experienced in Santa Barbara. I do have to mention, however, that the noise level was extremely high.

Well, I'd recommend it to a friend with a conditional: if there are more than two of you have a good discussion ahead of time w staff about the table arrangement!. Unfortunately the excellent food and good server-service was kind of overshadowed by our groups of 6-with-reservation being seated at two tiny tables (originally it was only 1.5 tiny tables and we insisted on move). There is just no room for all the dishes ! it was ridiculous. If there is a chance to post an image I'll do that. The server was excellent but the hostess was kind of dysfunctional and not a problem solver (the tables she said were booked never did fill; we could indeed have put something bigger together).
However, food wise it was excellent: two had the gnocchi in truffle cream sauce and loved it. I had ossobuco and it couldn't have been more yummy.
If you are vegan or other special food needs take the time to call and converse. I think they are interested in accommodating anything but on-the-spot changes will be less creative. Our two vegans ate pizza and spaghetti with -- in each case -- just tomato and basil.
Also note: the outdoor dining is just tables on the grubby public sidewalk.
$$$$ Altogether, with appetizers, multiple drinks, six meals, dessert and/or dessert drinks and a generous tip it was $550 out the door. So I rate it rather expensive. But you could omit things and spend much less.

They did not honor my outside reservation even though I was on time and gave it to someone else. The food was excellent but the service was sooooooo slow I got a headache from the wine because I had no food. A loud rotund drunken woman monopolized the inside space so overall only so-so. Too bad the food was excellent.

Great food from the basket of assorted breads to start through interesting soups and salads to my magnificent chicken and asparagus risotto to the complimentary cookies at the end. Very attentive service (my water never got below half-empty). Tip: you can order half-orders (including half a glass of wine), which is great because we got full quickly.

The food and service were very good. My salmon was a little dry, but still delicious. My only slight complaint was the hostess was very abrupt, not very friendly.

Just had a lovely lunch at Tre Lune. My salad was different and creative and delicious. And our server encouraged us to linger and enjoy ourselves.
I’ve been to Tre Lune many times for breakfasts, lunches and dinners and it is consistently superb.

Tre Lune is a “Don’t Miss It!” in Montecito/Santa Barbara. It is an extremely well run restaurant. Everything on the menu (and I have had many things) is excellent. In 12 years we have never been disappointed! Old school ambiance, but not arrogant, just comfortable.

A gem of a restaurant!

Latest visit was with close family from the East Coast -- a haven of good Northern Italian restaurants -- and they agreed that Tre Lune is one of the best they ever saw. On a par or better than any similar restaurant in Santa Barbara or LA -- or NJ where we're from. One of our all-time favorites !!

Have dined at Tre Lune on every visit to Santa Barbara for years and will never stop. The ambience and food are only topped by the service and conversation with Niki!! The risotto with clams, shrimp and mushrooms as well as the halibut special last night were spectacular and makes me wish we did not have to go back to Houston. Looking forward to our next trip!!
