It's your traditional CPK. The only reason I'm writing the review is to let you know that it is in a mall where you pay for parking. We were just there for dinner and CPK was really quick with our food, so we were able to get in and out quickly and not pay for parking. Other than that -... More

My husband and I had a full size BBQ chicken salad and a margharita pizza. Both were fabulous - what you expect from CPK. The pizza could have used more basil. The staff was super attentive and friendly. The location is my favorite place in downtown Santa Barbara. Plenty of parking. Super easy to get to. Decor was a little... More

Very busy restaurant in Paseo Nuevo. Had a 15 min wait for a table. After that service was efficient and friendly. Had the Bianco Flatbread and the California Club Pizza. Both were extremely good and very tasty . It is a preference of mine to find pizza places that are prepared to stake their reputation by committing to speciality pizzas... More

The service was friendly, attentive and professional. The food was absolutely delicious and the prices weren't expensive. The pop was refillable too. I had the asparagus, spinach spaghettini with chicken which was sooooo nice but too much I couldn't eat it all. The pizzas were tasty as well.

Very tasteful recipes, creative way of working with pizza's (like with pear-gorgonzola/fresh spinach as salad on top etc.) and pasta's and FRESH. Enough vegetables to get. Nice cosy seating and very organized, not overcrowded. Nice personal. We went TWICE!

Great salads and pizzas. Portions are extremely big and very tasty. I ordered regular size quinoa & arugula salad with chicken and tortilla soup .I could finish just half of it. Salad can feed 4 people, it is better to order small size salad. Best tortilla soup ever and again huge portions . My kid ordered mushroom pizza. Everything was... More

Enjoyed their Veggie Salad with Salmon. So good!! Hubby had the Rib-eye--good but lacking a bit in flavor. Potatoes and arugula salad, good. Staff, cheerful and attentive.

long wait on a Saturday evening for a rather ordinary meal. Salad portions were generous but my wife rated hers "OK". I would say the same for my pizza, a mushroom pizza on flatbread or at least a very thin crust. There was cheese but no tomato sauce at all. The mango/rasberry beverage was advertised "lightly" sweetend but it was... More
