Welcome prosecco and a small starter came in addition to the meal. The waiter very attentive. Food beautifully presented and tasty.

This was definitely a highlight meal of our trip. The carbonara was the best I had the whole time we were in Italy and is not to be missed! Our wine recommendations were fabulous. It was a pricey meal (probably the most we paid all trip), but well worth the experience!

Dear Payal, maybe you should be more sincere. You came (with reservation) for dinner one evening when we were overbooked and for this reason we had to dispense with further booking requests. (and if we were full surely there must be a reason) Our menu (from long time) offers dishes for vegetarians and gluten intolerant people! The waiter also suggested... More

Service and ambiance were great but the menu did not warrant the high prices. The food presentation was nice but selections were not unusual and taste bland to average.

Some of the other reviews are just bizarre - they have a great and varied menu (not weird cuisine) and the service was exceptional and friendly from beginning to end. We were exhausted after travel and asked our hotel for someplace close by. They recommended Oliviero and we were very pleased. It's lovely inside, quiet and quaint. Our hotel concierge... More

We ate at Oliviero on our first evening in Florence - and just had to come back again to try more of their superb delicious food! The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, explaining the dishes we couldn't quite translate and suggesting perfect wines to match the food (and not the most expensive ones available!) and in...

We were at this restaurant on Saturday the 1st of March, firstly the service is faultless, from the minute you walk in, to the time you leave, waiting staff can't do enough, and aslo speak good English as well, The restaurant itself is quite minimalist, which I think it adds to the charm and makes it very cosy, The menu...

The food was fantastic. The owner was extremely friendly and showed me all his autograph books signed by various artists and footballers.

If sheep brains and liver are your idea of delicious then this is the place for you. We did all 4 courses and each of us had different things but we only liked 1 of the 8 things we tried (the masterpiece - spaghetti) Strange space and peculiar clientele, the table opposite us had a barking dog under the table....

I am very sorry that you have not enjoyed our dishes but mostly you have done a lot of confusion about what we offer. If you had read the menu well, we propose a part of the traditional Tuscan cuisine and a part of innovative cuisine. In the Tuscan tradition we also serve fried veal brain (and not not sheep!)...

It's a hotel recommendation when we are asking for seasonal white truffle dinner. A Mediterania dinner with homemade pasta, well-prepared veal... All with white truffle... Slices of them on each plate!! Wine recommendation was not bad at all with reasonable pricing! Services were excellent, AS a frequent traveller you can not ask for more!! My wife Loves it so we...
