Pizzeria
Reopened with all health and safety protocols in place.
Olio Pizzeria is a causal pizza bar/salumi bar/wine bar/full bar which was inspired by the myriad neighborhood pizzerie and enoteche (wine bars) found around the corner from just about every piazza in Italy. This idea began to take shape before Alberto and Elaine Morello even opened Olio e Limone Ristorante, their fine dining Italian restaurant next door. Wine bars serving boutique salumi and formaggi are all the rage in Italy, as is a regionalism which they are excited to share with you. Sicily is an emerging powerhouse, and touches of Sicilian food and wine delight their guests. You’ll also find exciting tastes from Campania and other emerging regions on their menus, wine and beer lists. Now open for takeout. Buon appetito!

Was there for my birthday. Service was great in the beginning and halfway through it fell off a cliff. My wife told me she ordered a dessert from the menu and told them it was my birthday. 20 mins went by and nothing. The place wasn’t busy. And when she found him to ask what’s taking so long. The waiter replied that he was sorry and seating customers. Why is he doing that when there’s someone already there for that. He finally rushed out the dessert and took off again. I didn’t realize seating customers was more important than taking care of who’s already seated. This is Totally Unacceptable!!!

We were seated on time, but they were severely understaffed. Our order was finally taken about 40 minutes after being seated. Drink orders were forgotten, the wrong food order was delivered. Plating was sloppy. Lots of other minor mishaps to the point of being almost comical if we weren't paying full price.

We were really bummed because usually this place is much more on point. Needless to say, we won't be coming back anytime soon.

We had a rather disappointing first time experience at Olio Pizzeria. We had a reservation and were sat in the back room, in a corner, next to the kitchen, with zero ambiance. We asked to move, which they kindly accommodated, but I'm not sure why we were shoved in the corner with other available seats to begin with. We shared a pizza, salad and both ordered quartino sized wines. The Caesar salad was good but the pizza was only so-so. The crust was a little soggy and underdone. The wine was a head-scratcher. We both ordered red and both arrived cold . . . cold like white wine, which is not how it should be served. Plus the "quartino" size, at nearly twice the price of a glass, was a ripoff when we saw how big the glass pours were that arrived at other tables. Our service was tolerable, only because it was obvious our waiter appeared to be very new, and the restaurant is struggling with staffing issues like so many others. He was very friendly, however. Overall, would not recommend.

Pizza is better than Bettina! Patio was sheltered, heated, and tables were appropriately spaced (not just for COVID but for conversation). Service was attentive but not intrusive.

It was hot sitting next to the pizza oven. Salad was a little too greasy for me. The Peroni beer was not a light beer that was tol me by the waiter. Overall the experience was good.

Casual small space indoors, got noisy. Seems like they have outdoor seating in back but we weren’t offered that. Excellent pizza and calzone, nice wine and beer choices. Don’t confuse with the fine dining Olio and Limone next door!

The food was excellent and our server, Sawyer, made sure we were taken care of.
We had the Favorita salad, penne pesto with chicken and the pizza with fennel sausage and mushrooms. For dessert we had the vanilla gelato and cannolis! Absolutely delicious We will definitely come back and highly recommend to our friends and family

I wish we caught our server's name - he was so attentive and efficient. We really appreciated it. There's a lovely variety of starters, salads, pizzas, pastas and mains to select from. We had the margherita pizza, two pastas, a salad and dessert. Each of us enjoyed our meals. This is the 2nd or third time we've eaten here and its been great each time. Thank you! We'll be back.
