    This is a garlic knot. With an actual not and lots of lovely garlic inside

    Try the whole bran vanilla bean cake! It's outrageously good. :-)

    Best muesli and brilliant poached eggs - we loved it

    Zoe Nathan has a way with dough, be it bread dough or laminated dough, and her croissants are glorious examples of the genre, either plain, ham-and-cheese or Valrhona. Read more

    Shrimp + polenta is out of this world. Then again so is everything.

    Call ahead. It only has two tables. I think one table is named after Milo, the other Olive.

    Must go! So freaking delicious. Got the wood-fired roasted potato pizza which just melted in my mouth. Also got the daily brussels sprouts special which too was amazing.

    You can swap in egg whites without getting scowls from your server if you're trying to keep it light. If you're feeling the hurt of the night's past, opt for one of their Vietnamese iced coffees. Read more

    Milo spaghetti & meatballs were delicious!!

    Order a side of mariners with the garlic knot and white sauce pizzas. Takes an amazing dish and makes it even better

    The warm farro was a brilliant breakfast dish, a spicy stir fry with poached eggs

    Love the polenta and breakfast pizza for brunch. Mmmm salivating thinking about it

    Josh Furie · August 6, 2014

    Not strictly necessary to order pizza at all. But you probably should get a "garlic knot," which here is a hollow sphere of pizza dough, tied at the top with string and stuffed with garlic cloves. Read more

    I am especially keen on the straight-up Margherita and the mixed-mushroom, which involves a bed of melted Fontina, lemon zest, Parmesan, and thyme. Read more

    Hans solo was here!

    Amusingly the thing they had run out of, after waiting an hour for a table, was olives. Nice place, good pizza, friendly service, but go early or late to avoid a long wait (avoid arriving 8.30-9.00pm)

    Sam Duffy · July 4, 2014
  • Buttercup D.

    The garlic knot is a must! If you're a garlic lover--especially roasted garlic--you'll love it! Garlic and olive oil baked in bread that's tied in a knot at the top. Delicious!!

    Buttercup D · June 2, 2014

    Chicken meatball panini rocks!

    Kevin Riley · May 5, 2014

    Retaining some of the best aspects of Mozza's crust-centric vision, Milo & Olive prepares some of the best pizzas on the Westside, thanks to fantastic toppings and a steady wood-fired crust. Read more

    Get a sit @ the bar and try the sautéed kale, Brussels sprouts, beet salad, garlic bun, and ANY pizza.

    Fantastic for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Love the seasonal crostini, butternut squash, chicken meatballs and arugula salad.

  • Lilit

    Instead of ordering the burrata, order the brussels sprouts - they come with burrata but are less pricey.

    Lilit · February 20, 2014

    Best dishes: fresh pasta with bolognese, sautéed kale, and any pizza with an egg.

    Gluten free Chocolate Carrot Cake...allI can say is YUM!

    Garlic knot wasn't bad. It wasn't as garlicky as I wanted it to be. It was mostly drenched in oil/butter. Have me heartburn.

    Sam Alon · October 16, 2013
  • Dan S.

    This is the one pizza spot where you don't want to leave the crust on your plate. Get the house cured olives and dip the crust in the olive oil.

    Dan Steinberg · October 13, 2013
  • Puno D.

    We always try at least one special and they have always been fantastic. Seasonal is the way to go!

    Upscale no frills bakery and pizzeria using local and organic produce and meats. They don't take reservations and seats purely on first come basis so if you want to bring a larger group come early.

    SAUSAGE & GRITS... and any fruit tart, of course

    never come with anything larger than a party of 2. party of four over an 1.5 hour wait

    Asparagus. Pizza. If you're lucky enough to be there when they have it on special, it's all you need. Amazing!

    The Bianca pizza is a thing of luxury. And the Chicken Meatball Panini, when available, is phenomenal as well.

    The garlic knot has ruined me for all other garlic knots. It has also broken mt heart, because we are doomed to a long distance relationship. So worth the carbs.

    Housemade pork belly pizza, pastas, milo chopped salad, sangria, prosecco cocktails, strawberry corn meal cake, strawberry vanilla tart, verve coffee!!

    Large array of dessert. Nice place for some wine/coffee. Mushroom pizza/prosciutto is a must have!
