Great Italian Food

Our hotel recommended this as one of the best places to eat in Lithia Springs....they weren't wrong. Garlic/butter/parmesan rolls, home made lasagna, and fast and friendly service. Me and my two sons enjoyed our meal immensely. Decor is nothing special, but the food is worth the visit!!!!!

I had lunch here with some business colleagues. The restaurant is a classic small Greek/Italian family restaurant. The decor is nice...nothing fancy but clean and simple. The dishes are Greek and Italian inspired...the salads, Gyro plates, sandwiches and pasta dishes were all very good. Efficient, friendly service. A good value. I'll return!

i have been going to this restaurant for about 25 years.it has always been excellent, and still is for the most part. Service is excellent and the Clam linguini eras very good. One of my friends had that, and the other friend and I had the Greek Tour, which consisted of Gyro meat and chicken with pita bread, grape leaves,... More

White tablecloths are under glass top. They do not clean them. The side of the cloth had dried sauce spilled. Food was average but the place was dark and dingy. Never went back.

The Olive Tree was very quiet and quaint. Although located on busy Thornton Road, I believe it's a hidden gem. You walk in and you feel safe and comfortable. We were greeted immediately and with a smile, sat at the little bar to review the menu and sipped on a drink while waiting for the take out order. We were... More

Went to this restaurant because it was closest to the hotel and we were hungry and greek food sounded good. Small restaurant, not really a lot of pomp and circumstance, but the food was awesome. I had the grilled veggies and fish-phenomenal tasting. I didn't have any, but the desserts looked amazing as well as every other persons plate that... More

We got there just as they were closing and they welcomed us in anyway! We had been traveling all day so being welcomed and served by such friendly staff was an awesome treat! The food was very good too! The only problem I had was with another table that was there. We were seated next to a loud bunch of... More

I'm staying in the area for business (I'm a writer, if you must know!) and this restaurant was close to the hotel so we took a chance. I'm glad I did. The flaming cheese appetizer was delicious as was the lasagna, manicotti and fetticcine alfredo. The waitress was bubbly but not in an obnoxious way, and she joked around with... More

This restaurant is at the Thornton Rd exit off I-20. MY service was outstanding and my food was good. I ordered the sampler that had fettuccine, lasagna and tortellini. Lasagna and Tortellini were very good the fettuccine,was very average. The chopped Greek salad was pretty good but I do prefer leaf salads. Bottom-line this is a good value for the... More

Avoid the marinara sauce but other than that it is great food. The marinara sauce is way too sweet. The meals are well prepared and presented. Service can be a little iffy depending on your waiter. A family of four came in after we did and received their drinks, salads and meal be fore the two of us did. During... More
