Montecito Wine Bistro
As Ian Filippini Santa Barbara knows, Montecito has many great places to delight in food and drink. One of the great, and perhaps lesser knows of these places, is Montecito Wine Bistro (https://www.pierrelafond.com/). Montecito Wine Bistro is located at 516 San Ysidro Road, which is considered the Upper Village in Montecito.
Montecito Wine Bistro, like many restaurants and bars in Montecito, is fancy and casual at the same time. There is a wonderful outdoor patio that is fun to gather on with friends, as Ian Filippini Santa Barbara has done from time to time. There is also a giant fireplace to warm up by on cooler evenings.
Montecito Wine Bistro has a quite a large menu including steaks, chicken, burgers, and chops. They also have salads, sandwiches and flat breads that come out amazing out of their wood-burning oven. And of course, they have a very large and diverse wine list.
