“Delicious Pizza”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

On my second night in town, I wanted a more causal meal and opted for Olio Pizzeria. I loved the atmosphere - very authentic. The pizza was thin crust and very good. I ordered the standard, light Margarita. This is a good choice for someone eating solo. The waiters and staff were very friendly. A very enjoyable meal and experience. I would definitely go back.

“Nice lunch”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

I came here with my two sons for lunch on a summer weekday and had a great lunch. We are all gluten-free so we ordered two pizzas with GF crust ($5 extra), as well as beef carpaccio, burrata and grilled asparagus with poached egg. The carpaccio has a tonnato-type sauce and plenty of capers. The burrata was very creamy and came with a large serving of prosciutto - it was more like a prosciutto board with some burrata and olives in the middle. The grilled asparagus, my favorite, was enhanced with bits of bacon and fontina. The GF pizza crust was relatively thin and though it didn't have the lightness of a typical thin crust it was OK. Service was prompt and food was high quality and piping hot. The place is fairly small with a warm Tuscan feel. We will definitely come back the next time we are in town.

“Good pizza”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

A good pizza restaurant. Good selection of starters. Plenty for vegetarians. A good (if expensive wine list) cant fault it really.

“Great Sicilian pizza. More hits than misses. ”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

We went here to have a nice, casual meal for 6 and were not disappointed. Ordered 2 salads and 4 pizzas, which was just about right (maybe a little much). Service was good and the pizzas came out in a flash. The more standard pizzas (margarita, sausage) were more successful than the more experimental (fig and prosciutto, fruiti di mare). Would definitely visit again.

“Great pizzeria in the heart of Santa Barbara”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We enjoyed a fun dinner here. We loved the Hearts of Palm - lemon /Parmesan salad better than the pizza.
Pizza was good and atmosphere was fun and festive!
