Let's Meet for a New Year's Pizza Party in downtown Santa Barbara

January "New Year's" Meetup at
Nardonne's La Famiglia Pizzeria

Let's get together for a new year's get-together and hang out with both new and old friends alike at one of Santa Barbara's favorite Italian restaurants and pizzerias. The owner has offered to give us the entire restaurant for a private party if we have at least a dozen people on board.

There will not be a formal presentation at this meetup but just a chance to have some fun, and enjoy each other's company and celebrate the new year together. Your choice of a late lunch or early dinner, or simply snacks and beverages are available from Nardonne's delicious and reasonably priced menu.

Here are some reviews from satisfied customers:

"This is a great family owned pizza parlor. you can see them making the fresh dough from your table, which you then pick your custom toppings. We had a wedge salad first which we split followed by a medium pizza. They also have a fine selection of wines by the glass or bottle. It is now a must go back to place for us in Santa Barbara!"

"Nardonne's is pizza unlike any other pizza in town. It's got a really thick crust that kind of fades from really crispy and brown to the softness of the melted cheese and toppings. It's very hard to tell, just on texture alone, where the transition happens. And that's kind of awesome."

"Seriously delicious pizza, thick yet crispy crust with homemade flavorful sauce and melty fresh cheese. I came here with my parents while we were visiting Santa Barbra. The staff was the actual family who owned the restaurant. The son and daughter in law of the original owners. They were extremely friendly and made our visit very pleasant. It was very moderately priced for drinks and food."

They serve salads, sandwiches and pizza and you can see the menu here.

The meetup will begin at 2:00pm and continue until around 4:00pm. Please feel free to bring guests if you'd like too!

See you on Sunday January 27th!

    Hi, All! Sorry I missed this. Got confused in my head. Otherwise, getting ready to fly back to Florida February 27th, to sell off more of my things and then re-start my bike trip from Texas. Hope to be back here in July (or so :)), this time to stay for good! Hope to maybe see at least some of you before I leave, and if not, then when I get back. Peace! Lori

    Hi all, looks like a great time! Sorry I couldn't make it. I had a friend's 40th b-day and that's one I couldn't miss. See you at the next one! Were there any suggestions for next time?

    I look forward to meeting people in this group, as a world traveler myself I'm always looking for other adventurers. Because it is during film festival, and I dedicate myself to movie going, I'm not 100% sure I will be able to make it. I will do my best. If not I'll look forward to your next meeting. Cheers

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
