This place was highly recommended by a good friend and we went there for my birthday. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The place has a warm atmosphere. Our server was very friendly and helpful with the menu. We both had well made martinis and were given time to enjoy our drinks before ordering dinner. We shared a... More

We had a very good dinner with my family. The entrees were very nice. I had a fantastic burrata with italian salumi and a superb portion of gorgonzola. The pizza was also very good. Definitely a good spot for dinner.

4 of us shared 2 pizzas and 3 salads. The pizzas were services piping hot right out of the brick oven. They were delicious, as were the 2 salads that we had. We didn't drink as we'd been wine tasting all day, but the wine list looked good.

We were waiting for south bound traffic to LA to die down and wanted a light meal, a friend recommended Olio and we are glad they did! this was the perfect spot with a great menu. The place was busy but the bar tender came over to help us and made our stay even more enjoyable with his casual conversation... More

This restaurant is tucked back in a group of buildings on State Street...not easily seen from the street but so worth the find. My husband and I ate here twice while visiting Santa Barbara. The Umbra pizza is outstanding...Robiola cheese, cremini mushrooms and truffle oil. Great service, nice outside patio area as well as inside dining. Will definitely eat here... More

Nice italian food restaurant. We had insalata di polpino (octopus) which was perfect and pizza Margarita DOC with burrata. We asked for crispy pizza so they baked it a bit longer. Very nice service by young lady, sorry don't remember her name. She adviced us about town directions and sightseeing and was very much helpfull.

We wanted an easy meal with minimum fuss, this laid back pizzeria provided the perfect solution. The starters well quite varied so we shared 3, the pizzas were good. It was busy with locals and tourists as it was Labor day.

We were told about this place from our hotel and were told to rush as it was 9pm. They were still open and had plenty of people walking in hours after us. In saying that, when we walked in it took ages to be seated. The servers were just all starring at us. I was pretty close to leaving. The... More

I highly recommend the arugula salad with shaved Parmesan and artichoke hearts, as well as the truffle pizza (three of us ordered this one and it filled the air with a most wonderful aroma). I've had the Capricciosa pizza before (several times) and my friend had the Mare Chiaro pizza last night. He loved it, too. Everything is made to... More
