Nice visit after work

We visited after work for a quick snack and drink. Our server was very helpful in recommending a beer to try. Even though she knew we were only there for a quick visit, she didn't treat us like second class patrons. Our app and salad were fresh and well cooked.

When we arrived, the restaurant was packed with guests eating before some event. We were seated upstairs away from the energy and ambiance. We had absolutely zero service. The pizza was good but not great. This was our first and last visit.

No need to elaborate.... The appetizer were ok and we found a nail in our food. The pizza looked good but we left, the manager was nice and apologized and didn't charge us for anything but it's hard to give this more than 2 stars.

The food here is delicious, no doubt about it. But their courtesy to patrons leaves something to be desired. Made 6:30 reservations three days in advance. Confirmed on date of reservation. Got there a few minutes early. Huge milling crowd spilling out the door, panicked hostess said it would be 30-45 minutes before they could honor our reservations. Said the... More

my wife and I went for dinner and split a calzone (huge) and order of bruschetta. both were good. the calzone was a bit bitter because of the amount of greens. that's not a bad thing. drinks were good, bruschetta was great. atmosphere was also great although it might be that you would sit next to a family with an...

I go hear at least a few times per month (lunch & dinner) and it never fails to delight - the appetizers, salads, pizzas and desserts are all fantastic. Very nice feel/vibe to the place as well with full bar, exposed brick and the pizza oven. Call ahead... can get very busy.

Very popular for its great food and great ambiance. On the pricey side and tends to be a bit noisy---but a fun and satisfying experience for sure!

Had a charming late Monday night casual dinner sitting up at the bar, admiring the hard and efficient work of the two kitchen cooks at Olio Pizzeria. The wine and cocktail list is impressive, there is an extensive, interesting menu with something for everyone. We shared a delicious spinach salad with feta and olives, as well as one boscaiola pizza... More

An offshoot of Olio e Limone Italian restaurant, this pizza place is much more than a "pizza place." The service is excellent, the list of pizza possibilities is interesting, and the wine list is good. My husband's and my favorite place for pizza in Santa Barbara.
