We enjoy this restaurant when in Los Olivos. On our last visit 3 of us were vegetarians...pasta or pizza are the main vegetarian options for an entree. I hope they expand their vegetarian menu beyond a carbo entree. My husband loved the trout...broth is fantastic. More

Discover Santa Ynez Valley

The Santa Ynez Valley is tucked in a lush paradise known for California wines. The Valley is also home to a number of exceptional dining choices that make the most of the rich agricultural region and local produce. Visit a classic street food-style pizzeria with a menu packed with local products. Taste a beef tongue pastrami sandwich or Margherita pizza with fresh mozzarella. If you're looking for healthy, an array of gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options are available. There is no shortage of cafes and bistros with seasonal menus featuring octopus salad, mushroom pasta, and lamb shanks for a Greek-American fusion. Start your day with Danish pancakes and various fresh-fruit toppings.
