Olivadi's is a great restaurant for a date or a pleasant evening with friends. The food is absolutely amazing...mouth-watering. Make sure to order the chicken piccata with capers, the entire meal is ridiculously delicious.

We recently dined there with a party of 5. We had reservations and were promptly seated by a very pleasant hostess. The ambiance is great. Small and inviting with a semi-open kitchen concept. The service was great from everyone, including the waitress, the servers, and the manager who came over to ask if everything was ok. We did not opt... More

It was a surprise to find such lovely atmosphere, attentive wait staff, and excellent food. We each had a glass of wine. I had minestrone soup which was as good as anything in the North End, my companion had a huge garden salad. She had the special Chicken and I had the Beef Tenderloin. Both were done just as we...

I went to Olivadi with family from out of town and was extremely disappointed in the dinner we had there. Our reservation was made for 6 people several weeks ago, but we ended up having 8 people join us for dinner. There were 2 extra people and the hostess made it seem as though we brought 10 extra people. She... More

Had dinner as a party of four, and enjoyed the meal in every way. We appreciated the absence of music, since it is hard enough to hear one another in most restaurants. The beer selection included a nice selection of regional and local brews on tap. The wait staff seemed well trained - formal, efficient and friendly; not chatty. The... More

We went with our friends to celebrate their birthdays on Sunday evening. We were seated quickly with our 6:30 reservation. The restaurant was about half full. My wife and I have been to this restaurant may times and regard it as one of our favorites. Our server greeted us promptly and took our drink order. Both couples ordered salads. The... More

Went to Olivadi for a birthday celebration. They were quite busy for a Wednesday night and I can understand why: Great food, nice wine list and friendly staff. Marvin was friendly and attentive. I'll be back to Olivadi!
