This restaurant is a go to one for my family. I love so many different dishes that it is hard to makeup my mind. Alfonso is really a greathost and chef and his staff are always ready to help you out. I especially love their eggplant dish with zita stuffing. I always take one order home for the next night.... More

We had dinner twice in a year and both times it was pleasant and the food was ok but we were not impressed by any means. We are especially disappointed since it's so close for us. The atmosphere was relaxing but the food didn't create any pazazz as far as craving a really delicious Italian meal.

Have been here many times and always enjoy coming back. Family owned and excellent selection of farm fresh food and delish entrees from fish to meat and everything in between. Great servers and a substantial wine list.

This is our second visit and we are thrilled. The food is wonderful and the servers are great. It can be a little confusing to find the hostess stand for seating so go through the bar area to the bar in the dining room. The homemade pasta is so tender it melts in your mouth. If we are in the... More

We have been to Uliveto’s several times over the years but last night reminded me of how great a place it is. It was a quiet evening and the bar was more crowded than the restaurant. I had the Linguini Crostacei and it was loaded with seafood—mussels, clams, calamari and shrimp. The tomato sauce was excellent with just the right... More

Many people around I know brag about it. I'd say it is somewhat middle range, no surprise, conventional, so so... not too thrilled about it. You'll have to judge by yourself.

Trattoria Ulivetto was a nice surprise in Orcutt. I was visiting the area with friends who suggested this restaurant. We did not have a reservation but arrived before the evening rush. We were seated immediately. By the time we finished dinner, the restaurant was completely full on a Wednesday night. It appears to be a local favorite as many of... More

We had dinner on a busy Friday night. This is not the kind of place to go for a quiet dinner. The acoustics don't allow for meaningful conversation. The salads were tasty and plentiful. The service was good. We both had entree specials. I had the seabass carciofi that was very tasty. My husband had a filet with cream sauce.... More

We ordered salads and ravioli. Salads were good. Not imaginative but good. The ravioli was horrible The pasta had the taste and texture of a Chinese dumpling and the fillings were heavy and not enrobed in the pasta, Not inexpensive and definitely not worth the price. Skip this place if you want Italian food.
