I highly recommend the arugula salad with shaved Parmesan and artichoke hearts, as well as the truffle pizza (three of us ordered this one and it filled the air with a most wonderful aroma). I've had the Capricciosa pizza before (several times) and my friend had the Mare Chiaro pizza last night. He loved it, too. Everything is made to... More

Best place to sit is upstairs, there you can eat and talk with friends. The place is popular and can be too much.

Just had dinner here this week, pizza and an arugula and cheese salad to start, both were terrific. This place is around the corner from the sister restaurant Olio e Limone and offers similar terrific food, very nice place and great service. Definitely on my to go list now when in Santa Barbara.

Every time we visit Santa Barbara my husband wants to go to this restaurant once while we're visiting, which is about once/year. The beet salad is excellent and the pizza is superb! We're thrilled that they now take reservations too! Absolutely love eating here every time!

We enjoy this moderately priced, friendly pizzeria much more than its high-end neighbor around the corner. The classic neapolitan style pizzas are well made, the wines are Italian, and there are good appetizers and salads if you want to stuff yourself. We highly recommend the Pizza Margherita AOC, simple but very good.

We shared a pizza, salad and bottle of wine in this very small intimate restaurant with friendly service. The spinach/kalamata olives/feta cheese salad was delicious. The homemade crust margherita pizza we added some fennel sausage. Yummy! While we were enjoying our wine, the chefs behind the bar were boiling something and soon we learned they were making fresh mozzarella cheese... More

This is an amazingly warm, wonderful setting for fantastic pizza. I do not love pizza, so the first time I was here, I was prepared to eat traditional pizza. I was absolutely wrong. While Olio has the classic Margherita pizza, that is certainly not the best fare on the menu. The Umbria is outstanding. Regardless of who I am with,... More

Tasty pizza and totally enjoyed the "black" calamari. Server was prompt and all servings came out timely. Prices were also reasonable. Will definitely dine there again next time I am in town.

After a few nights of fine dining we were looking forward to a simple pizza. Not disapointed, very good food and nice setting. My only minor gripe was that the bill soon added up with a bottle of wine.
