The food and ambience are great. Good variety of fresh foods for lunch or dinner. The Caponatina con Burrata was exceptionally good. We have eaten here twice and both times had great meals. The servers were attentive and friendly. Definitely a good place to eat in Santa Barbara.

We dined a separate night at their pizzeria was more casual but the food was amazing. The pizza is a must and even try the gluten free crust. Whatever you do, order the black squid ink fried calamari -some of the best you will ever have. The salads were tasty and desserts again were amazing - gelato, panna cotta and... More

Our son took us here for a light dinner on a Friday night. We had and highly recommend the fried calamari appetizer which was more that ample for 3. We chose 2 pizzas, the 4 cheese pizza and the margarita d.o.m. which were authentic. The salad with shaved artichoke hearts was outstanding. The service was attentive but not officious. We... More

Every time we go to Santa Barbara, we make a point of having a meal here, and Easter Saturday was no exception. Our party of seven was celebrating two birthdays, a five year old and an adult. I asked to be seated outside and we were given a lovely table. We always get the Calamari al nero (squid ink calamari... More

Very very pleasant experience. The staff was upmost friendly and helpful also on questions from my kids. The menu is big. We had delicious bruschetta and very well prepared pizza. A long wine list is present, our choice was perfect. The staff and owners are real Italian. Come back once

Olio Pizzeria, the casual sister to Olio e Limone around the corner, also enchants the eye and tastebuds of the diner. The visual centerpiece of the place is the gas fired open pizza oven, which flashes on periodically when an order of one of their dozen-and-a-half or so interesting thin-crust pizzas are put in to cook. The stucco walls have... More

After several visits over the years, Olio is still the best Neapolitan-style pizza. Their dough is the absolute best - tender, fragrant and always cooked to perfection. All toppings are of the highest quality. Splitting a pizza and salad makes for a great meal. It's all good.

We decided to go to Olio Pizzeria because of the great reviews and it did not disappoint. I had the corkscrew pasta and my husband had several appetizers. Everything was delicious and the wait staff is wonderful.
