We have dined at Olivadi since it opened. It never disappoints. Just keeps getting better. Evening specials are always a special treat. We have also had family events and baby shower here and they make an extra special effort to make each event special.

We are from NJ. Came to Norwood because my son played in a hockey tournament here. What do hockey players eat before or after the games? Pasta and proteins. Where could we find pasta? In an Italian place. We stayed in Hampton Inn in Norwood and didn't want to go far. There were 6 people in our party: three dads... More

Olivadi has a typical Italian restaurant menu but an ambience that is much better than most Italian restaurants. The restaurant has a lot of seating but the setup (a few medium size rooms) allows for nice, quiet meals. However, the quality of the food is variable. During a recent dinner, we had 2 entrees: the Gnocchi Sorentina Al Forno and... More

We popped into Olivadi for a fast lunch and were astonished by the outstanding service and wonderful food. We were in a very tight time crunch and when I explained that to the staff, they jumped on it and had us out in 35 minutes. Jamie slipped us the bill immediately after ordering so we could slide out quickly. She... More

The food and atmosphere at Olivadi Restaurant is excellent. I enjoy the Chicken Picata dish and Caesar Salad. The Shrimp Scampi dish is also very good. The wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable. The prices are very reasonable and portions of food are generous. I look forward to my next visit to Olivadi Restaurant!!!

We do not often dine in Norwood, even though it is the next town over. We found ourselves at an art gallery show and decided to walk the short distance to Olivadi. The hostess was polite and told us we could be seated right away if we did not mind a high top in the bar area. That was fine... More

I recently met friends here for dinner and had a nice meal. Our server was friendly and attentive. When we were first seated the restaurant wasn't busy. By the time we left every table was full. We each ordered a salad (Caesar and Olivadi) both a good size. The gnocchi (small portion) were delicious. One of my friends had the... More

Our party had dinner at Olivadi last Friday night. It was our first time there, but it won't be our last. When you pull into the vicinity near the center of town, you are met by a stately and modern front that had ample on street parking that night. We were efficiently seated for a 7:15 reservation. I had a... More

Saturday night and busy. We got drinks and appetizer at the bar waiting for our reservation which was about an hour away. Nice relaxed spot in the bar and the eggplant involtini appetizer was very good. A bit bummed we were not seated near our reservation time but about 25 minutes past our reservation. That said, we got a much... More
