Olio Pizzeria in Santa Barbara

While in Santa Barbara, Robby and I found this amazing Pizzeria.  They have a pizza bar,  wine bar, and full bar where you can watch your authentic Italian pizza being made.  This place made us happy, since we are both extremely picky about pizza and love a crisp crust.



The owners are a husband and wife team named Alberto and Elaine Morello.

When an owner actually runs their restaurant, it is usually a good sign and this one is exceptional!


Their decor is inspired from all of Italy’s regions with a rustic and romantic feel


Making the pizzas then cooking them in the high heat pizza oven


I had the Sauvignon Blanc / Luisa / Friuli / 2010 and it was delicious.

They have a great selection to choose from, offering them by the glass, quartino, mezzo litro, or full bottle

We both had the locale salad which was a simple salad of local organic greens, cherry tomatoes and a red wine vinaigrette


The pizza was a margherita with fresh mozzarella, fresh basil and a delicious red sauce.  They have a pepper oil I recommend trying on your Pizza!
