Mollie has the BEST sauce in the United States! The spinach ravioli is wonderful as is her fresh fruit dessert, minestrone, and everything else I have tried. Yes, the staff is all Italian, but I have not had any bad experiences with any

Pros: Wonderful food, great location

Cons: Parking can be tricky, kid-friendly, but I have never seen babies or toddlers there

Dissapointing on several occasions. The setting is beautiful, service is fine if not particularly friendly, and food is plated nicely but the actual taste is not very good, portions are small and prices are absurdly high for the quality.

I've been to Trattoria Mollie's several times for dinner over the past couple of years. The food as always been excellent (my favorite are the homemade meatballs) and the service has been decent. The prices are slightly inflated since her Oprah appearance, but still worth it for the great food.

We had been to Trattoria Mollie some years ago when it was in another location. We decided to go back recently because we had enjoyed our dinner there before. This time, I'm sorry to say, we were disappointed. The dining room was loud, everything echoed and made talking to each other very difficult. We asked to move outside to their patio and when we did, it was a great improvement.

Our dinners arrived and although we all tried, many of our group were disappointed in their meals. Not sure what happened, but the food was just not very good that evening. Although this is an upscale restaurant and our meals were on the expensive side, we later said that we probably would not go back.

Located on Coast Village Road just outside of Santa Barbara.

PROS: Patio dining was nice.
CONS: food not too great, unfortunately ,and overpriced too.

Our waitress did not speak english. Not a good start, as she brought my wife the pasta with tomatoes and cream sauce. My wife is allergic to cream; luckily we caught the mistake. The owner was at the table next to our trying on Jewelry
