Nice to find a restaurant that offers vegetarians a choice as we often struggle outside of major cities. Best reserve a table at weekends as this restaurant gets very busy. Food was excellent. Humous was the best I've tasted. Really nice bread too. My partner...More

Service was excellent and a great meals. The shrimp Mediterranean was very good with an ample portion but not enough rice. 3.99 for more rice than what came with the dinner. Also,they were not skimpy on the salad dressing for the side salad.

The best word I have to describe Oliva is meh. That pretty much covers it. Meh. The decor, the food, the service was just meh. We decided to drive across town to try Oliva. My husband was craving Mediterranean and there unfortunately aren't many moderately...More
