Ann Marie and staff went above and beyond to insure our daughter's baby shower was everything we hoped for. From helping to unload my car, to wonderful service, delicious food, and attention to many small details, they all worked together to provide a fun day for our guests. The buffet lunch was ample and yummy; our guests loved the Tuscan... More

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
