This was only my second time here. It was an amazing experience. We sat at the bar for about 2 and half hours, and felt right at home. The best part of the menu is that you can get half order entrees. My wife and I got 2 plates and the amazing wings. The Gnocchi are filled with ricotta and... More

We were staying in Norwood for the Deutsche Bank golf tournament and this was the best restaurant we found in Norwood. It is a contemporary Italian menu and the food was really very good meaning it was freshly prepared with high quality fresh ingredients...I did not sense anything was frozen restaurant fare. The portions were good size, not huge...quality over... More

This is a very good restaurant right in the middle of Norwood. Looks like it is a new restaurant or recently remodeled. Very nice menu; varied, reasonably priced with lots of good choices. The arugula salad was really good and my Papparadelle fungi pasta was very well prepared. Everything we both had was served promptly and was still hot. Ambience... More

I had never been to Olivadi's before last evening, even though I live less than 3 miles away. The dining room is tastefully decorated, and the tables are not on top of each other, which I very much liked. Our server, Marvin, was exceptionally attentive. The wine list was extensive. I ordered the spinach salad which was excellent. Really tasty,... More

Food is outstanding. Would've eaten in but, son wasn't feeling good. They take great care in their take-out presentation and if I wasn't in my living room wouldn't have known any better. Will be back soon to dine in the lounge with the wife.

Last weekend, we had Saturday dinner at Olivadi. The atmosphere is rather sophisticated, but not overstated. There is limited outdoor seating, and it was a nice evening, but some of us preferred to eat indoors. The food was decent, but there are many equally good if not better restaurants in the area. Given the higher cost for the meal, the... More

We were a group of two on the Saturday night of Memorial Day Weekend. Booked a table at 6:15 thinking it might be noisy later. Our whole experience was very pleasant, from parking, to being seated to being served. The space is very attractive. We were seated in a part of the restaurant with small tables of people (twos and... More

Second time eating here. To be honest, I must not have been overly impressed with the first visit, as I never felt the urge to return. Ate here with a party of 8. Mid week, pretty busy for a Wednesday night. Server was very good, but service...eh. VERY slow bringing salads. As for the food....I ordered pork tenderloin. How does... More
