Drawing inspiration from Old World coastal Italian cuisine with a garnish of Middle Eastern influence, costa Kitchen & Bar is a celebration of worldly flair and California charm: light, clean and fresh menus, with fare strong in substance and inspired by local harvests, wineries and breweries.
Unexpected design moments throughout the indoor seating extend to an outdoor terrace overlooking the ocean. Locals and guests can enjoy a seaside escape across from East Beach and located between Montecito and downtown Santa Barbara – the gateway to the American Riviera.
costa is devoted to exceptional food, creative cocktails, and an impressive wine list that inspires eclectic pairings and adventurous meals with Italian seaside influences.
At costa, locals and guests will experience bold, flavorful dishes infused with Italian seaside influences. Stand-out dishes will include Charred Shishito Peppers for the table and main courses such as the Steak Tagliata, Coast Honey Cured King Salmon, or Chef’s favorite, Lamb Scallopini. Notable cocktails will include the Italian Mojito which features Selva Rey Rum, Montenegro Amaro mixed with citrus and lemon flavors, or the “Gucci” Old Fashioned, a Kentucky Owl Batch Bourbon Whiskey with demerara and Bogart’s bitters. The robust wine menu will include Santa Barbara County wines such as Lindquist Chardonnay, Makor Merlot, and Paradise Springs “Pink Ash” Rosé.
