We like to drive up to Santa Barbara and often select Olio Pizzeria for lunch. The chicken liver bruchetta is a favorite as is the creamy and spicy sausage bruchetta. The Parma Proscuitto is delicious, albeit expensive for the small serving served without bread. Pizzas are small, expensive, and really good crust - the carbonara is unique. Plenty of wines... More

I really do love the pizza here. However, the service can be slow and the wine is extremely overpriced. I recommend an arugula salad with the olio e limone dressing, any of the wonderful pizzas and one of the many mixed drinks.

We went here for lunch. The place was not busy and the service was fast and good. We got the pizzas after 5-10 minutes. We added parma ham to the pizza with truffles and mushroom, it was amazing!!!

This restaurant/pizzeria is not what it should be - especially for the prices they charge. The service was boarding on rude, sort of threw the food at us, of course noisy, and most of all the pizza is barely average, and for the price it should be GREAT! Having a salad is impossible as their salads are lackluster at best... More

We had two really nice pizzas at this restaurant, busy place. Service was OK, the server told us they were small personal pizzas and they ended up being about 12 inches, so, instead of ordering an appetizer and a pizza to share, based on his recommendation, we order two pizzas, too much food, not the right information to make informed...

We came in late into Santa Barbara and wanted nothing fancy and served quickly. We were recommended this Pizzeria in the center of town and it did exactly what we wished for. Service was efficient and the pizza delicious.

Great place to get your pizza fix without stuffing yourself full of processed cheese and sub-par dough. Amazingly fresh and delicious ingredients! Cool, relaxed vibe also.

This is not your traditional American pizza joint. Here, you will find a variety of craft beers, Italian beers. They offer a nice variety of reasonably priced Italian wines by the glass. There is a full bar as well. The service is very good, helpful and attentive. The salads are nice to share. The Italian cheese and salumi options are... More

This more casual restaurant is affiliated with and next door to its big brother--Olio & Limone. The Pizzeria,unlike the restaurant, specializes in pizzas and it does a fantastic job in doing so. It has a good selection of pizzas with non-traditional toppings. We tried four different pizzas and they were all excellent. While the scene is clearly adult in orientation,... More

The atmosphere is always lively, and I have never gone wrong ordering the Umbria. All of my guests like this one, too! The salads are all very good, as well. One pizza and a salad provide plenty for 2 - 3 people to split.
