We’ve visited L’Olivo several times and all of our experiences have been great. They have plenty of variety in its menu. Great food and service at a great venue. Sometimes they have live music which provides a great relaxing background.

The menu has all the standards. It is how they are done that makes the difference. The chef is creative so expect exotic and gourmet. Expensive but worth it.
