Again and again I try to give these guys a chance and everytime I end up disappointed. ' It's not that much about the food, 'cause the food is at least decent, but their timing as easily the worst in the whole Chisinau. The amount...of time they need to prepare a simple breakfast is 30+ minutes, whereas the waiter always says 10-15 minutes. I started calling in advance, but to no avail, as it seems the waiters aren't even aware you called. Last time I visited, I called 15 minutes in advance to make an order, but the order arrived at our table at least 30 minutes after we already arrived (and that is to fry some eggs). I've been here 5 times in the last couple of months or so and nothing changes - the restaurant is almost empty, but the service is still slow as hell.More

The food is as close to New York Italian as you can get without being in the US. The pizza's are great, especially the pepperoni. The sauce makes a huge difference and they matched it perfectly. Our waiter Yuri was very helpful and knowledgeable about...the food and his overall friendliness was great. Excellent waiter which was the perfect compliment to the food. I highly recommend Oliva to anyone wanting great Italian food and if you have Yuri waiting on you then you will be more than satisfied!More
