I've eaten at Olio a few times for Sunday brunch. The food is wonderful. However, the restaurant is very small, and thus seating is very difficult. It is very hard to get in, and the employees are not very friendly; it feels as if they prefer you leave rather than wait for a table. Further, the acoustics are such that... More

This restaurant has a wonderfully diverse and creative menu. Portions are large and shareable. We shares a mixed seafood stew which was lightly spicy and quite delicious. I started wit an arugula salad that was wonderful with surprise ingredients. My husband had the vegetable soup which he devoured. We were too full for desert. With 2 glasses of wine, a... More

My first visit to to Olio was with two friends and I had never heard of it before. I'm so glad I made the trip; the food was absolutely amazing. I ordered the chicken which does take 30 min but the server was quick to point that out and suggested I order an app while I wait. I ended up... More

After hearing and reading wonderful things about this little restaurant in Springdale we decided to try it last night. Their pastas are house made so I ordered the fettuccine with meatballs. My husband had the same. My son ordered the cod special. The bread and white bean dip were delicious. They never asked us if we wanted a drink, but... More

Two friends and I had brunch around noon time. The wait staff was great since we had one person running very late. We ordered Vegetable Frittata, Lobster Benedict and Pancakes. My friends had Grand Mimosa and drank coffee. Everything was delicious. The bill was about $29 per person, tip included.

Had eaten at Olio several times before. Memory of scallops and gnocchi being very good. I recall they used to serve the two together, but have now split them on the menu. That was wise because they could never get both right -- either the scallops were overcooked or the gnocchi colder than it should have been. I also remembered... More

Went for lunch and ate the meatball appetizer and gnocchi for the main course. My wife had the beet salad with the steak sandwich. Everything was excellent. The beets were fresh and were not canned like in some restaurants. The service was friendly and competent. The portion sizes were just right. The wine list had a number of wines that... More

Went with another couple. American, Italian & Asian fusion. Everything ordered was very good and tasty. Pork belly and beet salad starters. Bass with bok choy and soy miso, Cioppino, House made Cavatelli, and House made Fettuccine. Definitely would recommend and go back.

This small restaurant has excellent food and a funky atmosphere. It's a bit off the beaten path, but worth the short trip
