Nice ambience, food and service was good. Looked like there was a nice bar if you want to hang out and have a more casual dinner. Wine list had a decent variety and the menu had something for everyone. Portions were good sized, someone at our table ordered the stuffed pork chop and it was pretty big. I had the... More

We had a group of 10, so we got to see and taste a lot of the menu. Everyone was very pleased with the service and the food, all was top notch. Very well anointed facility. The salads were big enough to share, as when they arrived the remark heard was, I can not eat all this take some. Fried... More

Went there with a party of six. Food and drinks were very good (a little pricey but worth it). The pasta was outstanding as was the Bolognese sauce. Deserts were very good as well. Not a cheap place but a good place.

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
