Fodor's Review

A sunny patio brightened by year-round blooms and menu of casual Cal-Italian fare has made Barbarella a perennial favorite for locals and visitors alike. The warm, woodsy room is accented with original work by local artists and a pizza oven decorated with mosaic tile by the late French sculptor, Niki de Saint Phalle. The seasonal menu ranges from crispy wild-mushroom pizzas, black mussels, and roasted half chicken, to the oversize Barbarella Burger topped with grilled red onions and cheddar cheese, and a whole stone-roasted fish of the day. Brunchgoers rave about the huevos rancheros with two salsas and the citrus hollandaise-topped eggs Benedict.
