We had read mixed reviews on Pizza Picasso and their gourmet pizzas. We wanted a regular old pepperoni pizza, so were looking at the advertiser racks in the resort. Olive Oil's had a 10%-off coupon, and we were glad we picked it up.
They do deliver to the resorts, but we decided to drive out since we didn't know the sizes. Olive Oils is located in the Safeway Plaza on 89A, so it is easy to find. The restaurant is very small, with limited seating. The walls are uniquely decorated with paintings of Disney cartoon characters.
We went to pick up some things at Rite-Aid while we waited for the pizza to cook, and then couldn't wait to get home to eat. The pizzas were some of the best we've had. It is a hand-tossed pizza. The sauce had a great flavor and the crust was really soft. I don't often eat the outside crust, but this was almost like eating a breadstick it was so soft.
I highly recommend Olive Oils. We picked up a pizza for lunch one day, too. When we called, they let us know that the size of the pizza we were ordering was on special with a free soda. In most of our experiences, we don't hear of the specials unless we ask. I thought the food and service were great.
When we picked up this pizza, the one girl working was delivering a pizza to a table outside where the patron was sitting with his dog.
