Giovanni’s Montecito

Every cito rat has been to Giovanni’s several times, if they haven’t then they are probably a hermit and should explore the greasy world of Gio’s. Giovanni’s is your typical pizzeria for soccer parties, birthdays, or just family pizza night. My friends and I head over in pajamas and play games and eat pizza for hours. Not only do they have great pizza, but they make a mouthwatering meatball sub and some delicious garlic bread. Gio’s is not the place to go if you’re working on your summer bod, but it’s a great way to have a fun, inexpensive dinner (in Montecito), with a big group of friends. You can not leave without a $1.75 soft serve ice cream aka “swirly”. You can choose from vanilla, chocolate, or swirled, definitely get swirled if you haven’t already. Make sure to bring your quarters to play some games and win anywhere from a gum ball to a playstation portable! ImageImage

Sandwich Spots of Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara has a great selection of sandwich spots. Fortunately for my friends and I, our favorite delis are all conveniently located near school so they make great lunch spots.

My top three faves:


A delicious #1 from Panino

A delicious #1 from Panino

Although expensive ($8.50+), the sandwiches from Panino are worth every penny. I order the #1 every time and never get tired of it.

Three Pickles Deli

When I’m craving a fresh, cold, turkey sandwich I eat at Three Pickles Deli. The brick building makes me feel out of state even though I’m right downtown. It’s a great place to grab a sammie, chips, Herbert’s lemonade, and people watch for lunch. Don’t forget to sample their juicy, crunchy freshly made pickles while you wait.

South Coast Deli

There is no other deli like South Coast. It’s exciting to order something new because I’ve never had a sandwich or salad I didn’t like. Don’t show up without a rumble in your stomach because you’ll leave stuffed every time.
