Sesto Senso

A Review of Montecito’s Newest Wine and Carpaccio Bar


Where: 1026-A Coast Village Rd., 565-1956, sestosensoca.com.

What: A relaxing atmosphere invites guests to sample numerous wines by the glass, pairing menus, and a selection of elegant dishes meant for sharing.

How much: Charcuterie and Carpaccio $8-$18, cheese plate with five cheeses $18, fancy mac and cheese $9.

The dish: Montecito’s newest wine and Carpaccio bar is evidence that Champagne, caviar, and oysters do not have to break the bank or be restricted to New Year’s Eve countdowns and black tie affairs. Sesto Senso brings decadent glamour to the table on small plates that will not make you choose between paying your bills and dining out. Bite-sized nibbles meant for grazing fill out the quality-driven menu, which features unexpected combinations of charcuterie, Carpaccio, and crudo (raw seafood). Owners Alberto and Michelle Mastrangelo, who also own Epiphany Restaurant & Bar, bring guests into adventuresome culinary territory with a menu that encourages sampling as well as experimentation with wine pairings recommended by enthusiastic and helpful staff. Enjoy the fancy mac and cheese made from cave-aged gruyre and toasted panko breadcrumbs at one of the romantically lit and inviting tables.
