The food at Olio is amazing! We have been there many times and have never been dissatisfied. Our favorites are the duck ravioli and the panna cotta for dessert. This was our first visit since the beginning of Covid and Olio still had a wonderful ambiance in their outdoor seating.
Excellent food and service as always. Safe outdoor dining.
The table next to us was very loud and obnoxious. The food was subpar for the price. The specials were NOT special. Ate next door the night before and it was awesome. This was not worth the money and the experience was POOR.
Perfect place, food was amazing, service was awesome. Would recommend
Amazing food and service! The outdoor tables are in a perfect location and the side street is very quiet if you are looking to escape State Street. Perfect for a small business meeting or romantic dinner out! They even brought us amazing free dessert!
I'd heard about the restaurant for a long time. My dinner could not be eaten.
I ordered a pasta that had at least 1/2 cup of salt added to the water. Very disappointing. They waiter didn't charge for the meal as it was uneaten.
My husband had a prix-fix meal which was fine. They also have a very poor selection of sparkling wine/Champagne.
My fiancé and I had the wonderful opportunity to meet the owner and she was an absolutely incredible woman who showed such a care and thoughtfulness when speaking to us. We love everything about this restaurant from the service, to the food, to the ambience! I have tried something new every single time and I’ve never been disappointed, in fact I look forward to coming back every month just for the excitement of trying something new! Olio e Limone demonstrates the very highest in both food quality and customer service, this is by far the most authentic Italian experience I have ever had. My fiancé and I will drive two hours one way to have our dinner here, and we have never ever regretted it or thought twice about finding somewhere else! I can not say enough to compliment the entire restaurant staff and the owner for maintaining that genuine Italian feel amidst this crazy pandemic world we live in. This food will absolutely delight you and surprise your taste buds with a familiar feeling while engaging them in new flavors and taste so freshly perfect you will 100% recommend this to everyone you know just like we do!
The outside dining was great, the service was fantastic and the food was ultra delicious. I would highly recommend having a meal here. Will definitely go back.
Unfortunately, the food was not up to par for the price. I ordered the gnocchi and that dish was great. However, both of my friends’ dishes were rather mediocre and bland. One ordered the risotto and the other the spinach fettuccine. Service was excelled. Due to COVID we were sat essentially in the parking lot, which really took away from the experience.
Food is heavily salted. The tortellini was tasteless. Carpaccio was great. Ravioli salted way too much. Not super friendly staff.
Food was great value. It was nice set up with outdoor seating however there was only two waiters for a lot of guests. I think they can beef up the staff a little bit.
Food was good however I feel they can do a little more for a birthday celebration however I can’t knock them for honoring it. Good place to stop by and eat at. Will try again
Took over an hour and 10 min for entrees to arrive — over a half hour after we were done with starters. The food was standard Italian fair — fine, but not worth the wait.
Great service. The staff is super friendly.
The hamachi is amazing, pumpkin raviolis its a must have. We also tried the pan seared Swordfish, totally recommend it.
Perfect as usual. Elaine and her staff are on point when it comes to an exquite fine dining experience. This time we had the rib eye with potatoes special, delicious. Next time I'm going to have the pumpkin ravioli which is one of my favorite dishes. You will not be disappointed. Highly recommend.
Authentic and simply delicious! Dined during COVID and they made the most of a difficult situation.
The food was incredible, I got the duck ravioli and it was the best pasta I’ve ever had! Highly recommend.
The food is always delicious at olio! I think it has always been one of the best restaurants in town for the 19 years I have been here.
Great food and service
We sat outside on the street because of COVID but it had no impact on our dining experience. The food and service were amazing. I definitely recommend this restaurant!
They’ve done an outstanding job making the outside dining a wonderful experience. The food, the service, the quiet street at sunset....it was a wonderful way to celebrate turning 50! Can’t wait to go back!
A service and management fiasco. A memorable night in the worst way. We had a reservation for 8 PM and arrived early. It was not clear who was acting as the maitre d and many employees passed us by without offering assistance. We were finally greeted and we requested one of the many tables with heaters because it was a cold night. After 18 minutes, a hostess took us to a remote table, far from any heater. We froze waiting for service. Every step was delayed. Cutlery. Water. Ordering. A cocktail. When the check finally came, the waiter joked "I'll be back in 20 minutes." Humor was not in order. An apology would have been better. So disappointing.
The service is fabulous, cuisine is authentically prepared and delicious! Elaine makes sure your experience is memorable! My favorite Italian!
Food was delightful. Service was excellent.
Some of the best and authentic Italian food I have ever had.
Prefer the traditional indoor service at this restaurant but given the covid limitations it was very nice.
This restaurant is always outstanding. Our favorite Italian restaurant in Santa Barbara!
This was my wife's birthday gathering with our best friends. We chose to have the dinner at Olio because the food and service are always outstanding. We were happy to see that Silvio would be our server. He helped us pick out great wine and food; everything was served at a perfect pace. We had a great time!
This came highly recommended and I think with Covid they are understaffed and are using lesser quality ingredients. There was one waiter for all the tables around 8, the food was over salted, on the cold side, and unimpressive. We went for my son's bday and it was not worth the price and was sub par.
The food was phenomenal. Beef carpaccio was delicious. Duck ravioli . . . sublime. Outdoor setting forced by CoViD-19 was actually nice. Food was comparable to any of the high end DTLA restaurants.
Amazing food, amazing people, amazing place. We shared the burrata as a starter, and the farfalle as an entree with asparagus on the side. It was delicious! Their olive oil that came with the bread is really good, so we decided to buy a bottle. Desserts were phenomenal! We had pear tart and lemon tart, with a glass of moscato. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We will definitely come back the next time we're in Santa Barbara.
perfectly prepared and flavored italian dishes ending with the best panna cotta ever.
Food is absolutely delicious and they have a great outdoor dining set up!
Considering the restraints that have been imposed on restaurants, we were delighted with the dining experience and the food was excellent!
Reservation was not there when we arrived; and they directed us to go to their sister restaurant the pizza place. At the end they were able to accommodate us.
Delicious food. Salad was bland, main courses were fabulous.
The meal was very good as always. A great go-to restaurant. Our server (sorry I don't remember her name) was delightful.
A fantastic meal with a lovely environment!
Ice cream was melted. How do u serve it for desert? Poor kitchen service.
Authentic Italian food served with fresh ingredients and a very friendly attitude. Outdoor sidewalk dining vibe was nice too. Reasonable prices with large portions. Incredible selection of both local vineyards and imported Italian wines at fair prices. Service was 5/5 stars.
