Great pizza

The starters are good, antipasta plate has good variety and very nice. Pizzas are huge and great quality. Service is attentive but not too overbearing. The house red is excellent value for money.

We have visited Oliveto a number of times and every time we find the staff rude and unhelpful. We ordered a drink at the bar and the barman left us mid service with only half our drinks, the manager then took over and gave one more drink and abandoned us again before completing our order to serve another customer!

Derek Thanks for the online review and there is no excuse for the shoddy service received when you visited. In order for me to investigate this internally, I would like an opportunity for me to have a quick e-mail exchange or chat so I can identify the table, time of service etc. Would you be able to send me a...

Have been to Oliveto,s many times and never get tired of the place. Love the restaurant, love the food, love the ambience, great for families and adults only. Only downside, we never get offered a limoncello on the house - please rectify!!

We a family gathering of 9 recently had lunch at this fine restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the staff were their usual friendly and helpful selves. For good value and fine service in a beautifully located restaurant it is hard to beat Oliveto for children and adults alike. We look forward to returning soon.... More

Enjoyed a very nice dinner while traveling for business. It is a short walk from the pier, with beautiful views of the harbor. Try the lamb pappardelle, yum.

What a location for a restaurant, views over one of the most beautiful harbours in Ireland and a beer garden offering huge potential too. We've been a couple Of times and I've always had the house pizza (Oliveto) and never been let down. Throw in attentive staff and serious high quality Italian grub - starters, pastas etc and this place... More

I've been to Oliveto now 4 times since Christmas 2014. It's consistent in quality and service. The menu is Classic Italian..reminds me of going into a good trattoria anywhere in Italy. The presentation of antipasti is a treat in itself...frito misto is my favourite but the pappardelle with wild boar is delicious. Wine list is quality and offers a carafe... More

I visited Oliveto on Friday evening with some friends from work. The interior of the restaurant is so nice, it had a great vibe about it! We were seated at a window table overlooking the pier - felt like we were on holidays! We shared the Oliveto board to start - amazing breads, grilled veg, pesto, Italian meats, salad and... More
