hen the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore! And amore it is at Ca’ Dario Pizzeria. Ca’ Dario has been a Santa Barbara favorite for years and its new pizzeria is quickly following in its footsteps. A cozy space and smiling faces greet you as you enter an old worldly atmosphere. The one-page menu invites you to enjoy simple, straightforward flavors, which are precisely what make every dish beautiful and ever so Italian. You’ll find classics like Burrata Caprese and Margherita pizza or classics-witha-twist like the Napoletana topped with fresh capers and white anchovies (instead of the normal canned-in-oil ones). Want to practice your Italiano and learn about the wines of Italy? Sit at the bar and clink Salute! while chatting with the enthusiastic Italian barman. Beer more your style? They have several of those on tap, too. And as we all know, the key to fantastic pizza is the dough. Ca’ Dario Pizzeria rolls it thin and achieves a perfect bite in the intensely hot pizza oven. Slap some amazingly vibrant tomato sauce and fresh high quality ingredients on there and we’re in love. What more could you knead? You’re sure to find a piece of la vita bella at Ca’ Dario Pizzeria and walk out singing that’s amore! Buon appetito!

GREEN SCENE A Pure Remedy by Courtney Dietz

It’s admittedly rare when we find a line of skincare products that is 100% natural and also 100% effective, but that’s indeed what we found in Puremedy, a company born down the coast in Topanga Canyon out of a family’s ancient remedy. From chest rubs to wound care to salves for babies, there is a product for just about everything that ails your skin. Blemish got you down? Try the Original Healing Salve or the Acne Free as a spot treatment. We were pleasantly surprised how quickly it knocked down that pesky pimple. Susie scraped her knee? Slather on some First Aid Salve and you can almost watch the healing happen. And unlike those other harsh fixes, these are safe enough to eat. It’s a pure remedy. Available locally at Lazy Acres and Lassen’s. For more information, visit
