Ate there with all the family, 3 generations, on Sunday afternoon. Sharing anything is no problem. Pizzas pretty big and good. Great view of Dun Laoghaire Pier if you get a window seat. Would recommend booking in advance.

If in Dun Laoghaire on a warm summer's day, Olivetto is worth a visit for a quick drink or even some food in their outdoor grass seating area with a glorious view of Dublin bay and Howth Head!

Scored Olivetto overall 3, food 1, value 2, service 4, atmosphere 4. Although restaurant is lovely, modern contemporary decor, candlelit at night, overlooking sea, great atmosphere in lovely hotel, sadly the food did not suit me. As vegan, there was little on menu and unusually, they could do nothing to grant my request for some plain vegetables with nuts or... More

I was here with a large party for lunch. We dined in a beautiful private room with windows overlooking the ocean. The staff were very friendly and efficient and the food was delicious. I particularly loved the Oliveto board which was so fresh and tasty. I'm looking forward to going back next week with another group of friends.

The most awesome restaurant to sit and look out at the beautiful views toward Howth, to watch families with their dogs and prams walk the Dun Loaghaire East Pier. A friendly welcome, a lovely light lunch of Lemon sole and Riggatoni with spicy Italian sausage, two crisp glasses of draft. What better way to enjoy a cold winter Saturday lunch!

I visited Oliveto for the first time last night with a friend. My friend had a pizza which was very tasty. I had the belly of pork very tasty but portion was very small. The service was very good. Overall a bit pricey for dinner

My son has been on to us for some time to try out the Oliveto restaurant in Dun Laoghaire for some time and finally, last night, we made it. The restaurant is attached to the Kingston Hotel and with a view of the East Pier in DunLaoghaire. Initial impressions were very positive, there was a nice atmosphere in the place,... More
