We had heard great things about this restaurant and we're delighted to try it. First impressions are excellent, it's well designed, busy and has an amazing view. Food was good, we tried ravioli, tortellini, pizza and the special veal. We also ordered 2 sides of chips, between 5 people one would be enough! Food wasn't hot which was disappointing but... More

Attended wedding function, sat 3rd, for Laura and Ronan. Wow, the quality of food served to us was truly way beyond the quality of other places I have been for weddings. Starter of sharing platter with Parma ham, salami, mortadella, pate, bean salad, caponata, roasted veg, pesto, cheese and chargrilled bread, absolutely brilliant. Main course was choice of fillets of... More

We were staying in the Haddington for a few nights and decided to try the restaurant, having had a few drinks at the bar the previous night. We started with the Fritto Misto and aside from the size of the plate presented to us, the food was excellent, outstripping the same dish in our local 'favourite' restaurant. The main courses...

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.

Thank Katherine Gogar... H
