Above: A classic Italian seafood salad is just as at home in Santa Barbara, California as it would be in Naples or Venice, Italy!

“Guido Oppizzi immigrated to America from Italy only three years ago, bringing a deep love for traditional cooking from his homeland,” writes Rebecca Horigan for the Santa Barbara weekly Santa Barbara Independent.

Oppizzi, who hails from Pavia, Italy, told the writer that his new Santa Barbara restaurant Oppi’z “is much more modern and unconventional cuisine, but still deeply rooted in the Italian culture. “Everything should be fresh and light. I really do not want to have food processed.”

His new restaurant is one of the seaside city’s most talked about and it features the flavors of Italy reinterpreted in a California key, like the seafood salad featured above (image via the Oppi’z Facebook).

For his new restaurant, he writes on his website, he “has reinterpreted the traditional concept of the pizzeria by designing a unique menu with a great novel variety of gourmet pizzas and a selection of fresh, light and healthy dishes.”

We couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of this amazing new restaurant and wine program!
