Milo & Olive brings the best of their other establishments (Rustic Canyon, Huckleberry) to their newest pizza venture. This means the best pastries, a good wine selection, and a really authentic and lovely atmosphere. Everything I had from the prawns to the meatballs were delicious. This restaurant teeny tiny. Seating is very tight, service is very on point.

great little place. it really is tiny though. there are 2 communal tables so if you can't get a spot (no reservations) you can stand at a narrow counter and eat that way. i was willing to do so, but there was a line of people almost out the door waiting for at table. at 8pm on at tuesday the wait was about 40 minutes for a table. a nice touch was the waitress walking around handing out an appetizer of fried rizotto balls for the patrons standing in line (and eating at the counter). so yummy. the garlic knot was soooo good! but it's one giant knot! i was expecting tiny ones like i've had in the past. you can tell they know bread. the crust was soooo crispy! and great tasting olive oil. also got the anchovy pizza. the crust was AMAZING, as was the spicy tomato sauce. but i could have used a little less arugala. the stuff was heaping over and falling all over the place. will come back to try dessert!

Food was very good! We had the gnocchi & bravino w/ beer. Simple menu, intimate place, kinda east coast style. Wait sucks a bit on dinner hours: 30-45 mins but they give you their risotto ball for free "for the very patient customers." customer svc: ****

**SOLID LUNCH SPOT IN SANTA MONICA**
Quaint, modern, and simple.
Waited 10-15 minutes for a communal table around noon on a Thursday.
Friendly servers and staff.
**ARUGULA & RADICCHIO ($11)
Arugula with fried capers, shaved fennel, anchovy dressing, and Parmigiano Reggiano was very tasty. Loved those fried capers.
**CRISPY DUCK LEG ($15)
With a side salad of blood orange, medjool dates, pistachio, bitter greens, and agrodolce. OMG, wonderfully delicious. One of the tastiest salads I've had. The crispy duck leg was fantastic. Not a big leg, so ordering an appetizer is recommended.
Also sipped on some lemonade and a post-lunch cappuccino.
Lunch for two was around $60 (no alcohol).
Next time I will order a pizza and another salad.
RECOMMEND for lunch.
