My wife and I went to the Black Olive recently, a small Italian-based restaurant in Lomita. It was the third time for us, but each time was under a different owner and the ambiance of the restaurant was different. This most recent experience was wonderful because the service was great. Our waiter was so friendly and that made a huge... More

The food is very good authentic Italian, and the service is pretty good, too. This is a small place but well-known in the local area. It has been open for many years.

Excellent chicken marsala, delicious warm foccacia bread straight out of the oven. Reasonable prices. Pleasant service. Nice atmosphere. This will be our new go-to neighborhood Italian restaurant. Note they do not serve alcohol but that's not a big deal for us. Have drinks before or after dinner somewhere else.

The Black Olive is a very nice high-end Italian restaurant. The place is small but intimate, white table cloths and flowers on the tables. The decor is nicely done. The service is usually very good, they sometimes have new hires that should have more training before they put them to work. The food is very good and they have a... More

Haven't been here in a while. Heard there was a new owner. The food was very good. A little pricey for the amount served but not too bad. Service was good but we felt a little rushed. My wife loved the rolled eggplant & my scampi was good. Four glasses of wine & dinner came to $65.00 excluding tip. We... More

I love this place. It has been around for many years and has kept the quality up! Very romantic and small but big enough to envite family and friends out for a beautifully candle lit dinner.
