“Neighboorhood Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

When this restaurant first opened many years ago, we tried it out and were disappointed. However, we decided to finally give it another go as it is so close to us. Now we're sorry we waited so long to go back. As we went on a Tuesday night, reservations were not needed. We were warmly greeted and led to a great table next to the fireplace. Loved the ambience - high celing, open feel and tables are placed well away from each other. We had a hard time choosing what to eat as everything sounded so good. I loved that many menu items came in two seizes.
We were thrilled with the food - so very good. The service was excellent as well.

“Happy place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

Friendly staff, not overpowering. Nice choices for food and wine. Decor, atmosphere and food really is like a neighbourhood trattoria except the food is north american style but smsller portions. Happy to go back.

“A wonderful dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Last weekend we had the pleasure of sharing a special occasion with friends. They chose Oliveto. While pricey, the food was absolutely wonderful and so was the service. Another great thing: smaller portions were available for many of their pasta dishes and with a smaller price. As we are seniors who watch our diets, we really appreciated that feature. The smaller portion was plenty for us, but for those of larger appetite, the larger portion would have been perfect. I wish there were more restaurants like this one.

“Not just a "neighborhood restaurant"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Yes, Oliveto is located in a neighborhood shopping center and not in the middle of the city dining scene. However, that should not take away from the fact this is an excellent restaurant. The food is creative, portions generous and the service excellent. The dining room lacks privacy, but that adds to the italian family ambiance. This is one of our favorite Edmonton restaurants.
