We visit Gli Ulivi at least once a week. We have tried many other local restaurants in the area and NOWHERE compares to this wonderful restaurant. We love the food, the chefs, the waiters, especially Vito, and Mario the owner. You will not be disappointed!

Loved the fave e cicoria and the other dishes we ordered. A delicious variety of breads and olives presented before the meal. Waiters were very efficient and pleasant, making for a lovely experience. Quiet setting outside the main part of town.

Excellent culinary experience, with very proactive waiters. The veal grill (grilled on wood) was one of the best in my life. Not too expensive.

We visited this restaurant twice whilst in Alberobello and thoroughly enjoyed it. The menu is quite extensive, and the complimentary bruschetta pomodoro was just delicious. Pizzas (approx. 5 Euros) were incredibly good and easily enough for 2 people to share, although you can take them home if you don't finish. A 1/2 litre of local red wine was under 3... More

Although the Italians tend to eat later we were really lucky to get a sat here at 8:30, it was already filling up - advice book next time. The garden area is favourite and clean. The waiter was very friendly, helpful and spoke good English. We ordered 2 portions of Antipasta for 3, in truth 1 portion would have been... More
