The family had found a better place in the neighborhood, but with relatives in town, decided to try again. Menu hasn't changed much, bar is still great, but a bit of slip on the food. The minestrone veggies were mushy and the soup overall was...More

If you are looking for an authentic Italian restaurant, this is the place for you. The food was good, the atmosphere pleasant, and the servers helpful in explaining choices. My portion was too large for me to finish.

Loved the eggplant appetizer so we were looking forward to the rest. Our main courses were okay, good, but not very exciting. I had salmon encrusted with pistachio and horseradish; my companions ordered orrechiette and veal marsala. We all had pretty much the same reaction--food...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...More
