Thank you, Olio. Being originally from NY, I have been challenged to find a pizza that is even worth buying here in LA. Olio is consistent and very good. The first time I went was on a recent Sunday in July with a good girlfriend for wine and pizza. We were seated immediately on their heated patio (be prepared for the noise of the busy intersection), ordered the meatball specialty pizza, wood fired brussel sprouts (MUST ORDER) and I crossed my fingers. We were quickly greeted by a thin crust wood fired delight. No this is not NY style pizza but it is good and crispy enough to get the "ny fold". The crust has flavor, the sauce is fresh and the cheese is not hiding anything....the turkey meatballs need a bit more flavor and probably no panko coating. My friend and I returned this past Saturday and were concerned we would not get seated without reservations (thanks a lot LA Weekly "Life of Pie"), but were pleasantly surprised when we were able to take a seat immediately at the bar (Olio is small almost tiny). The bar faces the wood fire oven and provides a view into the kitchen and the preparation of your pizza. We again ordered the brussel sprouts and this time the other house sauvignon blanc and the sausage and peppers specialty pizza. This pizza topped the last one. As I said in the beginning Olio is consistent and very good! Expect to pay between $10.99-$16.99 for a pie.
