My boyfriend and I were looking for a good lunch spot when we happened to find Olio hidden in shopping center near State Street. The restaurant was beautifully and traditionally decorated with Italian decor and staff began doting on us the moment we walked in. We were immediately plied with water and wine samples and the management periodically checked on... More

Great pizzas, great place and friendly staff. Top it off with really fresh cheeses and cured meat and you are in business. Not to miss when visiting Santa Barbara!

This is a great spot. Fun atmosphere, delicious pizza and other appetizers (great deserts btw) and worth the wait which there usually is. I live in Santa Barbara and can recommend this restaurant strongly.

This is the most authentic pizza in Santa BArbara. It is a great little spot. The salads are good, and the pizzas are GREAT! I crave this pizza all the time. It is not cheap, but it is sooo delicious. It really is the closest thing I've found to eating Pizza at little cafes in Italy. The wine list is... More

This was our second visit to Olio. The appetizers of fried cauliflower and the mussels were superb. Our pizza's were fresh and hot. The pork belly pizza was like eating the finest pork with a chewy bread crust. Look forward to returning on our next visit into Santa Barbara.

Olio is the pizzeria restaurant to the regular Olio Restaurant. It is always quite busy and we usually wait at least 30 to 50 minutes, which I don't really like but the food is good. The place is a bit noisy but pizza is excellent. A little pricy for pizza but okay once in a while. The service is good... More

This place smells great, the food taste great and the service is great. What else can I say? We loved our pizza, thin crust with sliced fennel sausage. A wee on the pricey side but one pizza will feed three, 2 if you are hungry and 1 if you are starving. So at $18 for one person yes pricey but... More

This was the best pizza ever. We are planning on going to Italy for a family vacation next year and I think we've really hit the "feel" for Italian pizza with Olio's. Really a very, very great pizza. Also, David was the Waiter and his knowledge really sent this experience over the top. Thanks everyone at Olio's for a very... More
