Petrini’s Italian Restaurant at 5711 Calle Real in Goleta (near Trader Joe’s) is showing the “Christmas Lights of Goleta” on its giant 11-foot HD television screen.

The display includes more than 200 photos of various Christmas lights from homes all throughout Goleta.

Don’t waste gas driving around trying to find the displays. Come on in to Petrini’s Italian Restaurant with the whole family and enjoy pizza or pasta while staying warm and viewing the light show every evening for the next few weeks.
