Food is solid

Considering where you are, this is very good. The Linguini Vongole is excellent. Service is solid but they are lacking a good wine list. Not enough Italian reds....either by the bottle or glass.

Best Italian that I have had in a long, long, time. Wait staff were friendly and seemed to enjoy waiting on their customers. While we were strangers, they sure made us feel right at home. Food was incredible!

This is really a nice little restaurant with very friendly staff. On the Thursday night, the restaurant was 80% full. My friend and I both felt like some deal but there wasn't any on the menu. We asked the waitress and she said "we can make veal piccata for you". The wine selection was very good and the veal, although... More

From Alfonso's greeting in the bar to his goodby after dinner, it was a great evening at Ulivetto. Our table for ten was ready for us on time even though there was a full house. The staff and especially Marna provided excellent service throughout the evening. All meals were delivered together and they were all enjoyed. Wine and appetizers were... More

Went for dinner with family. The place was packed and we were glad we made a reservation. It was pretty noisy since many people seemed to be enjoying themselves. The service was a little all over the place. Sometimes very good other times very slow. The food was excellent and served piping hot. Definitely a great place to eat in... More

The food is overpriced at this restaurant which I've only visited once at a going away party. I had an entree with a dinner salad and paid almost $20! The same dinner at Olive Garden would have been around $12. It was very crowded and we were seated out in a large room with long tables that held about 100... More

The food and service was fantastic but it was very noisy and hard to carry on a conversation. We thought the dress was a little more casual than we thought it would be.

Food works 100% of the time. Interesting specials and the count on it sure thing regular menu items always pleasing. Solid wine list and full bar complement the menu. Wait staff is always on their game, and while it gets busy, you never are forgotten. Good place to go with friends and see others there most every night of the... More

Beautiful restaurant with adequate service. The food is quite good but the portions are tiny. Five pumpkin raviolis cost you more than twenty dollars. The bread is very good that is served before the meal. Try to get there early as you will have longer wait times as the night goes on. Good wine list. Bottom line is that they're... More

I really wanted to give Trattoria Ulivetto the highest marks, as I want to spread the word about this family owned gem of a restaurant. I have nothing but great things to say about the food. It is always wonderful and our party of 4 was unanimous in our praise. My constructive (I hope) criticism relates to the service we... More
