I went there on a Sunday with some friends and we loved it. The staff is very helpful and prompt. I had Fritto Misto, which is very yummy and we also had pizzas. I can honestly say the pizza is one of the best that I ate in Dublin. Definitely recommend the restaurant though if you go in the weekend... More

Nice dinner out with the family, I eat very regularly on the weekends and also organised drinks and food with visitors and went in a corporate event with food and drinks. The best pizza in the area

Visited restaurant over New Years and will not be returning. Had a dinner reservation which the management rang to confirm on the day. What they didnt mention on the phone call was that their kitchen was being renovated which meant that the menu was restricted, which we only found out when we ordered. More importantly they didnt mention that they... More

Leonie Thanks for the review and I've reflected on the comments but I need some more information to ensure I can follow up on this formally. You mention 'over New Years' but as we were closed last week for refurb works, I am guessing you meant New Years Eve - can you confirm this? Could you also confirm the time... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the staff of the cafe at the Maritime Museum. We always like to ask local people where they like to ear. We were early for dinner, but were graciously seat at a table by the windows. We enjoyed a pint of Guinness, our first of our holiday in Ireland, while waiting to order... More

Very pleasant and friendly place. Very busy when our gang visited. Noisy so suggest getting there early. Lots of groups having Christmas party meals. Service was excellent. The Christmas menu is good value at €35 for3 courses. The choc mousse is devilshly wonderful. Don't understand why steak continues to command a supplement! They also produce thin crispy home made pizzas.

The traditional, wood fire pizzas made at Oliveto's are simply the best in town. Fresh ingredients, thin crust and creative. What more to ask.

I have eaten here on a few occasions and always enjoyed it. Good food, great service and a lovely view. The one thing I would love the owners to fix is the lack of sound proofing. The first few times I went the restaurant wasn't full, it was early evening, however my most recent visit was a Saturday evening so... More
