This is one of my favorite places in Santa Barbara. It is also way more affordable that Olio E Limone. The setting is very rustic Italian and the service is great.

This was our thrid time visiting Olio Pizzeria. It was a favorite place of ours when visiting our daughter, attending school in Santa Barbara. Last night we went with a large group and what a different experience we had. My husband ordered a calzone which was actually burnt! He couldn't even cut it with a knife. Because we were with...

Creative pizza with a variety of ingredients for meatitarians and vegetarians alike. Juicey wines by the glass or bottle and mixed drinks that went over with those who imbibed. Fairly crowded and I suspect reservations would be in order at prime time. There twice recently, once with a large group. Service was attentive and prompt.

This place has really good pizza! The ambiance is great, and you can (at least where we sat) see straight in to the stone oven. The service was great and our server (I forgot the name..) was very friendly. And did I mention that the pizza is great?

Olio Pizzaria opened up in Westlake Village. Made a reservation for eight. Showed up and they had no idea we made a reservation, despite the fact that they called and confirmed the reservation the day before. Okay, things happen. Waited for awhile to set up a table, but they got it together. First ordered some bruschetta appetizers. They got the... More

This is a casual, rustic and very authentic italian pizzeria with very tasty thin crust pizzas. Loved the very wide beer selection from italian micro-breweries and nice wine selection. Had a great dinner for a reasonable price! When in Santa Barbara and feel like pizza, don't settle for less :)

Mighty fine pizza in downtown Santa Barbara, tucked away off busy State St., but still easy to find. Their salads were extraordinary -- beets with pistachio and fresh ricotta; and the "favorite," which was a chopped antipasto. Pizzas were thin and crispy. Everyone loved the Parma pizza, with prosciutto and arugula.

I had the Quattro fromagi and it was okay, not exceptional. The meatballs were very good and the best thing we had on the table. The atmosphere is charming and the service was good.
