Olive and Milo
What is the type of food here?

Sorry, I've been quite out of the loop on this one for some time.

    Great steamed clams and good pizza. It is very small and they do not take reservations though. It's owned by the team behind Rustic Canyon and Huclkleberry. The dessert is amazing!

      Best Pizza on the Westside. I love their HOUSE MADE PORK BELLY SAUSAGE pizza with braised greens, tomato & fresh mozzarella. Also their BUTTERNUT SQUASH pizza with fresh mozzarella, caramelized onion, sage, brown butter, & farm egg .

            I'd been to Milo and Olive a couple of times, great place, great food. It is small, and it gets very busy, prepare to wait. Worth the wait? Yes! ~

              Went in today and ordered 2 pizzas to go. The anchovy, olive, (Fantastic) and the wild mushroom (always Fantastic). They are now stamping reheating instructions on the boxes, which is very helpful. The directions for each pizza was different, so it is not a "one size fits all." These people want you to reheat it right. They turned out great. Each one took about 6 minutes. However, the oven temps were a bit different. Did have a slice of a deliciously tart lemon meringue pie for dessert. Wonderful meal!

          It's offical. From todays LA Eater Milo and Olive is taking the space next door. Yes! The plan is to double seating (and add additional table options other than the current bar/communals), build another pizza oven, and expand chef Erin Eastland's menu overall, should be ready by early October.

                    Nope but I would get the Pork Belly Sausage Pizza next door often.

                I'm going to Miss it. But then again if I happen to run into and rub shoulders with Kat o Dell that will be all for the better. :)

                  Yes!

                  Now if they could only hold on to the wait staff that I like.... =(

                    They will not be closing during the add on at the moment.

                      I guess I was referring more to the rapid turnover of waitstaff there. Everytime I go in (which admittedly isn't super often), I feel like 50-100% of the staff has changed. I kind of like seeing familiar faces at my favorite eateries. =(

                        The joints with career waitstaffs are decidedly few and far between.

                        Sad to say. No joke.
