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.

Went to this pizzeria and got a taste of California. Started out with their barrel aged Manhattan, which was exceptional. Got the classical bruschetta, in their classical salad. The salad was prepared with a gentle hand with very light but tasty dressing. Finish with what I believe was the Umbra pizza, it had mushrooms, cheese, and was finished with truffle... More

Doesn't get any better then this. Chefs are Italians from Italy. We had for starters the Burrata Con Prosciutto. The Mozarella cheese was as silky as ice cream, the best we have ever had. And we didn' t have to go to Rome to get it (and we have been to Rome). Everything was devine. Make sure you get the... More

" to crisp them up " It wasn't his fault.... that's how they eat pizza in Cali... limp and gooey. I'm... More

I came here with our family after a long drive from Los Angeles. The food here was excellent. The pizza had a nice thin crust and good chew. They use fresh ingredients and you can taste it. The pizza reminds me of Italy. They don't have pepperoni, but the spicy Salami can pass as Pepperoni for the kids. We also... More

This is a beautiful restaurant, a bit noisy and it can get very crowded. But the food is excellent, the charcuterie plate is great and the pizzas don't get better. While not cheap, the food is worth the cost.

On my second night in town, I wanted a more causal meal and opted for Olio Pizzeria. I loved the atmosphere - very authentic. The pizza was thin crust and very good. I ordered the standard, light Margarita. This is a good choice for someone eating solo. The waiters and staff were very friendly. A very enjoyable meal and experience.... More

I came here with my two sons for lunch on a summer weekday and had a great lunch. We are all gluten-free so we ordered two pizzas with GF crust ($5 extra), as well as beef carpaccio, burrata and grilled asparagus with poached egg. The carpaccio has a tonnato-type sauce and plenty of capers. The burrata was very creamy and... More

A good pizza restaurant. Good selection of starters. Plenty for vegetarians. A good (if expensive wine list) cant fault it really.
