Costa Kitchen & Bar

Costa Kitchen and Bar


Lighter, cleaner fare with no shortage of flavor or substance, Costa is the perfect embodiment of the SoCal lifestyle. Farm Design takes inspiration from the restaurant's “Cal-Med” concept, which marries access to the world-class product here in California with inspiration from coastal Italian cuisine (and hints of Eastern Mediterranean dishes and flavors). The best of the Mediterranean is here.

Cal-Mediterranean Fare

Discover Amalfi Coastal culture and Mediterranean cuisine by way of Santa Barbara's Costa. The color palette lends itself to the rich hue of the Amalfi lemon with the warm olive tone and stone gray found in the coast's local environment. To further enhance the local traveler's experience, we derived textures from authentic hand-painted signs as well as the pebbles found along the Amalfi Coast.

A Captivating Bicoastal Experience

Costa's brand identity aligns with its sophisticated Cal-Mediterranean offering. We took graphic cues and textural elements from the nostalgic opulence the Amalfi Coast exudes. A delicate balance between Amalfi Coast's authentic culture and Santa Barbara's local scene, the brand identity delivers on the immersive and local experience allowing Costa to be a destination itself.
