Insiders in Rosarito know that the real pizza throwdown is between Ollie's & Bettucini's. Ollie's takes it a bit on the quality of the pizza, loses a bit on the atmosphere and location, but one rule leaves me puzzled.

You can't take leftovers home. Isn't the purpose of pizza to have cold pizza in the morning?

So for that reason, I give Ollie's only 4 stars.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our restaurant. You are absolutely correct if your intention was to point out that we do not do take out or delivery, we do, however, encourage our customers to take their leftovers and provide boxes with which to do so. I apologize if we did not convey this to you correctly and caused a misunderstanding.

Again, thank you for visiting and the review. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Richard

Absolutely, if you're in Rosarito Beach, Baja Calif. Ollie's opened in 2011 and has been a success since day 1. Richard (the owner....Ollie is his dog) is there to make sure your food is prepared, served and as tasty as if you were in Italy......and he should know, as his oven and ingredients come directly from there. I just returned from Italy and I did a lot of comparison taste testing. Hands down, Ollie's is authentic. You won't be disappointed!!

You go to Ollie's for pizza. I grew up in Chicago, and after living in southern California for twenty years was beginning to think that good pizza was lost forever. Then I moved to Rosarito, Mexico and discovered Ollie's.

Good pizza has a puffy outer crust with lots of air voids. It has a real good crumb to it, akin to good French bread - not crumbly, but with a good "chew." The taste of the dough is hard to explain, but you recognize it immediately. The inner crust is thin, but not "cracker" like. When you pick up a slice by the outer crust it should droop down; the center part is moist, not stiff. High quality cheese and rich sauce lend an aroma to the pizza that you recognize as soon as it arrives at your table. Ollie's has all of this, and in my opinion, in perfect balance. Whatever topping you choose you're gonna like this pizza.

I'm not done yet. Ollie's Caesar salad is outstanding. Hearts of romaine laided out like little soldiers with perfect Caesar dressing, all chilled just right. If you're like me, you'll ask for some extra anchovies.

Dessert? You bet. The tiramisu is excellent and is always fresh because it too is made on site. Save some room for this.

Finally, the service and ambiance are top shelf. Richard, the owner, has assembled a great staff and you can tell that they enjoy excelling at what they do.

Life is good at Ollie's.
