Pizza, Meatballs, Pasta and Beer at Milo and Olive

Our Story

Milo + Olive is a neighborhood bakery and pizzeria from Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan, the husband-and-wife team behind the Rustic Canyon Family of restaurants. In 2021, we earned Plate recognition in Michelin’s 2021 California Guide.

The menu represents our group’s continued commitment to truly seasonal, market-driven cuisine—a reflection of the best ingredients available from local farmers and vendors with sustainable practices. Executive Chef Connor Underwood turns out a selection of different classic and seasonal pizzas, made with Zoe’s signature 48-hour pizza dough, alongside an array of rustic, Italian wood-fired vegetables, handmade pastas, and small plates for sharing over lunch and dinner. The breakfast menu features a range of options, including egg dishes, alongside Head Baker David Martinez’s handcrafted breads, rustic pastries, and morning desserts.

We’re also the bread-baking hub for the restaurant group, where the team can experiment with new varieties of pastries and breads. We incorporate a wide selection of organic, whole-grain flours (some gluten-free), alongside more traditional breakfast pastries and desserts. Inspired by the farmers’ market, our bakers bring a bounty of ever-changing, fruit-driven sweets to the table.

The wine and beer list is curated by Rustic Canyon Family Wine Director Kathryn Coker (also Co-Owner of Esters), and focuses on highlighting small vineyards and breweries from across the globe. Refreshing cocktail options rotate with the seasons and are available all day long. Additionally, the restaurant serves espresso drinks and drip coffee from local artisan roaster Caffe Luxxe.
