Went to OeL with a group and had a fantastic experience. Antipasti was terrific and the Veal Chop incredible. Considering they served about 15 of us they did an exceptional job. Wine list was extensive- try the Gaja blend, I believe it's called Promise. Finished...More

We took our daughter here with her friends, before UCSB started. I made Open Table reservations on, a Sunday at 7:30 for a party of 5. When we arrived, we had to go through the Olio bar area because construction was blocking the main restaurant...More
