Look, it's great for a party, couples u under candlelight, birthday parties and I've seen weddings there! My experience is one of a great feed, quality produce in a friendly and relaxed ambiance. Pizza to die for, (I may have used that before) service was excellent and the guys were attentive. They were there with us, engaging and friendly. Go... More

If you like a good bowl of pasta this is the place for you. I visited with my daughter the evening before the Dublin Half Ironman race with the idea of carb loading and we both came away felling satisfied. Deserts were a surprise, the chocolate fondant oozed and the lemon tart received high praise. Judging by the number of... More

We arrived late without a booking, and the main food service was off as they had a function. They could only offer pizzas. I explained that I was gluten free and they had an option. Have to say it was the nicest gluten free pizza I have had in a restaurant. Wine delicious, lovely dessert and lemoncello.

We have been meaning to visit Olivetto for ages but it was always fully booked. We booked for last night and it did not let us down! Gorgeous food, beautifully prepared and very pleasant service. Highly recommend - if you like Italian food you will love it.

I came here for dinner with my partner. Unfortunately the restaurant was totally booked out. However the gentleman in the restaurant explained that there was still seating outside. On moving outside my boyfriend ordered a couple of drinks from the waitress. After 10 minutes and no signs of the drinks, I went to the outdoor bar to check their whereabouts.... More

Claire This reads very bad and I can only apologise. As you can tell from previous TA reviews, this is the exception rather than the rule and I'll look into it for sure. The garden is less formal and takes secondary priority to the restaurant service but this doesn't excuse the drinks issue nor the lack of communication and deserved... More

Shared the platter as a starter, extremely tasty olives, home made pesto delicious, other ingredients fab. Not seen my girls quite so quiet eating pasta, they loved it. The mains that followed, ravioli and a pizza blew the staters away, even more flavour. The chorizo pizza was amazing! Will be back

Had a lovely meal, very pleasant staff and good atmosphere. We were advised of the 20 min wait for the food and it was worth the wait.

Thank you Oliveto! We were sad we didn't find this place earlier, ordered pizza one nite as it was packed. We managed to get reservations for an early dinner on our last eve there and it was the best food we'd had the entire trip. Thank you!!!! We would recommend it with 10 stars!!

Thank Katie B
