We ate here on a Saturday evening, the restaurant had a good buzzy atmosphere and even though it was busy the service was excellent. We had some starters to share and then an assortment of pizzas and pasta for main course. Everything was delicious and had clearly been prepared using good fresh produce. Prices were what we would expect to pay for a nice Italian meal with wine.

Oliveto on Elisabeth Street is for me the best pizza place in London. Nice atmosphere, very friendly service.
My favorite Parma Ham and Rocket Pizza

They have great pizza, but the place is cramped, loud and very warm! Service was cheeky but nice - the atmosphere a bit canteenish in the front and more restaurant in the back.

In my many trips to Italy some of the best food i ever had was in Sardegna. So we were happy to find this was the speciality of the house. We already had pasta at lunch so we just had two appetizers each for dinner. The quality, freshness and uniqueness knocked our socks off. I had a mozzarella and capanata which had me savour each bite. This was followed by baked carciofi with tomatoes and shrimp that was as good if not better. My wife had a tuna that was prepared like procuitto. She is still dreaming about it and insists to go back. And service could not be better. Only down side is the character of the room. Not a lot of charm but for this rainy night close to our hotel it was fine

We go to Oliveto about once a week which gives a good indication of how much we like this restaurant. Don't be put off by its continual reference as a Pizza Restaurant. Oliveto does sell the BEST and the MOST DELICIOUS Thin Crust Pizzas in town but that represents just a small part of an appetizing and varied menu. In addition, there are SPECIALS daily and an accommodating Chef who will make Spaghetti as you wish. It is not cheap but relatively good value. It is a very casual restaurant with a high turnover of covers so not a restaurant where you would necessarily linger. Be warned, Sunday lunch brings family and lots of children.

Parking is available directly outside the restaurant on meters during the day and anywhere in the evening and it is only a ten-minute walk from Sloane Square Station.

The Staff are attentive and unobtrusive.

Booking is essential as it is a very busy restaurant. The only downside, for us, is that it is extremely noisy so if you are looking for a quiet, quick meal book early evening
