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.

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.
