Just moved to the area and was looking for a place that could accommodate a small group. Olivadi's had a room that would hold up to 17 people. I called ahead to have appetizers ready and they were served promptly upon our arrival. All of the appetizers were exceptional. Most of our group ordered different meals and everyone was very...

I had the Mushroom Risotto and it was prepared to the T. Service was great and the place sets a warm tone. Family oriented but could be a great dinner date spot for two. If you into sport and want to grab the game …..head to bar-side where there are a few monitors.

We tried Olivadi for lunch as we were about to leave Norwood/Boston and were favorably impressed with the food. We would go there again when we're in Boston. My husband had a traditional Italian meal and I had a burger (wanting something that would stay with me on the plane). Both were very good.

Unfortunately didn't make a reservation so were unable to sit in the dinig room but were able mto get a high top after a 20-30 minute wait. A very different menu with some interesting combinations. Service was excellent. Food was very good too. A fun evening and would go back again when in the area.

We ate here 3 times in a family visit, once with a family party of 10 and love this place. The biggest problem here is to decide what to eat. Be sure and listen to the specials. For starters I love their scallops and also the ravioli specials. The onion soup is great and not served with an over abundance... More

I really enjoy business travel in the northeast. The Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts area has some of the best Italian Seafood restaurants in the country. Olivadi's will not disappoint, the ingredients are fresh, the pastas are house made, the breads and pizzas, and the sauces can't be beat. If you're in the Norwood, MA area stop in to be... More
