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

Have been to Oliveto on a number of occasions with my family, in fact it has become a family favourite. We love the food, the location (view) and the warm welcome received from the staff. Will most definitely be going back again soon.

This restaurant is wonderful and I like to visit here often for dinner. The Italian food is delicious, authentic - from the lamb and fish to the past and pizza. The house wine is excellent. Overall it's great value for the very high quality. The views over the pier are unparalleled in Dun Laoghaire and the atmosphere is very relaxing.... More

We were staying at the hotel next to the Oliveto so walked in hoping to get a table without a reservation. The restaurant was packed but they set us up in the bar area which was very much appreciated, We ordered a pizza and pasta both of which were very good. The décor and service are great.

When we got engaged we both knew that Oliveto was the only place we wanted to get married. We've been big fans of their food and service since their Pavilion days, and their move to the Kingston sealed the venue for us with it's stunning views of Dublin Bay and the classic style of the hotel.
