Go into the less dressy pizza place connected to the restaurant but a couple of steps down the street. I'm from NY so I can safely say this is great stuff!

We went here for an early New Year's Eve dinner w/o a reservation, snagged a seat at the bar for two and proceeded to have a fantastic evening. The ambiance was incredible - very upbeat, high energy, youthful across all ages. The bartenders were super efficient as we watched their orchestrated beverage ballet whilst bantering about with us. And when... More

A great pizza dinner in SB right off of State Street. Convenient parking right nearby (don't forget to validate!). Every kind of pizza imaginable.

This place was highly recommended by a good friend and we went there for my birthday. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The place has a warm atmosphere. Our server was very friendly and helpful with the menu. We both had well made martinis and were given time to enjoy our drinks before ordering dinner. We shared a... More

We had a very good dinner with my family. The entrees were very nice. I had a fantastic burrata with italian salumi and a superb portion of gorgonzola. The pizza was also very good. Definitely a good spot for dinner.

4 of us shared 2 pizzas and 3 salads. The pizzas were services piping hot right out of the brick oven. They were delicious, as were the 2 salads that we had. We didn't drink as we'd been wine tasting all day, but the wine list looked good.

We were waiting for south bound traffic to LA to die down and wanted a light meal, a friend recommended Olio and we are glad they did! this was the perfect spot with a great menu. The place was busy but the bar tender came over to help us and made our stay even more enjoyable with his casual conversation... More

This restaurant is tucked back in a group of buildings on State Street...not easily seen from the street but so worth the find. My husband and I ate here twice while visiting Santa Barbara. The Umbra pizza is outstanding...Robiola cheese, cremini mushrooms and truffle oil. Great service, nice outside patio area as well as inside dining. Will definitely eat here... More

Nice italian food restaurant. We had insalata di polpino (octopus) which was perfect and pizza Margarita DOC with burrata. We asked for crispy pizza so they baked it a bit longer. Very nice service by young lady, sorry don't remember her name. She adviced us about town directions and sightseeing and was very much helpfull.
