SANTA MARIA VALLEY TRATTORIA ULIVETO CHEF ALFONSO CURTI

Trattoria Uliveto whose name roughly translates to “olive grove” is an exceptional trattoria in the heart of Old Orcutt – an unincorporated town in the Santa Maria Valley. Chef and owner Alfonso Curti have designed the first-rate menu of traditional Italian cuisines from locally sourced seasonal ingredients, handmade pasta, home-made Italian sausages, meticulously baked pizza from their wood-burning pizza oven, and home-made desserts, inspired by his Mamma and Nonna.

Chef Alfonso had always nurtured the dream of opening his own restaurant. This dream inspired and drove him to move from Calabria – a boot-shaped Italian Peninsula – to the States. Together with his partner Jim Spallino, he acquired the then Wine Cottage Bistro to start Trattoria Uliveto. It’s no wonder you feel like you’ve walked into a trattoria in Italy when you’re in Trattoria Uliverto.

The atmosphere is as warm and affectionate as is the staff and service. Uliveto features two bar seating areas: one in the main dining room as well as one for more casual gatherings offering extensive specialty cocktails and wine list.

Intimate outdoor seatings that overlook the old town are also available for enjoying a savory full course meal or a glass of wine. Looking for a venue to host your events, parties, or wedding? Trattoria Uliveto got you covered as well.
