I had been to this restaurant several times about 10 years ago. My first time back was a few months ago and I was very happy to learn that the quality of food, service and ambiance had not changed. Everything was delicious, carefully prepared and served. Recommend the fresh fish, the buratta salad, the desserts.

As a very picky Italian foodie, I will say that the food here is good. It is not overly creative, but is good old fashioned Italian food. The Affumicato Pizza which has mozzarella, smoked chicken, spinach and Goat Cheese on it, is one of their more creative pizza selections that is delicious. The 4 pasta dishes that we ordered were...

We were staying in Sherman Oaks and picked this restaurant based on a personal recommendation. Our grandkids were with us and wanted Italian for this night. We had proscuitto with figs salad, linguini, spaghetti, fettuccini funghi and a dessert. There was really nothing to fault. The service and food was excellent even though our server was a bit stuffy.

Quite similar to real Italian food. The pizza is thin crust, I like it like that, I had a chicken Milanese and I asked to have it extra thin, and they did it, and it was good. The vegetables I had to go with it were just steamed, but fresh, they serve a nice bread basket with a cup of... More

This has been a favorite for 8 years running. Great staff and good Italian chef. Reasonable process and lively atmosphere--especially Thursday thru Sunday make me go back time and again.

A group of 9 of us were in the L.A. area on business. Booked a reservation at the last minute based upon TA reviews. Even though we were 30 minutes late arriving due to traffic it was not a problem. We were greeted warmly and the service was excellent throughout our dinner. Our food was very fresh, pasta was light... More

I don't think anything about this restaurant would make me want to go back. Flavors were OK but not nuanced and complex; everything was on the slightly oily side.

The only thing richer than the flavors on our plates were the Italian accents of the staff! From start to finish I enjoyed everything I have eaten, every time I've been! Definitely worth making your way to Oliva. Seafood is phenomenal! Wine selection is amazing.

I have a friend who lives in Van Nuys and every couple of years my business takes me close enough to drop by and see him. We always go to dinner. Two years ago we went to this restaurant. When he asked me if I wanted Italian this time I suspected we would end up back at Oliva Trattoria and... More
