“Fantastic food, great service”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We had just arrived in Berlin and were looking for somewhere to get a quick evening meal, when we came upon Oliva. How lucky were we! We got a lovely warm welcome, a lovely meal (pizzas are pretty big for a UK boy- I struggled to finish it!. ). Wine was great, and it all came to a price that really surprised us for being so cheap for a big city centre location.

We almost went back a couple of nights later, and would have if it wouldn't have broken our strict travel code of no eating in the same place twice on short breaks!

I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who is after some good value Italian food in the Hackescher Markt area.

“Fantastic food and friendly service”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a nice Italian meal to finish off our stay. The staff were very attentive, even though the restaurant was full! They made sure we were served quickly and couldn't do enough for us. The food was really tasty and I would highly recommend it!

“Lovely restaurant, great food”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We visited this restaurant after a long day sightseeing. Four of us shared the mixed antipasto starter for two and I have to say it was huge! There was more then enough for the 4 of us. We followed with pork in gorgonzola sauce, pork in mushroom sauce, griddled lamb, and pork schnitzel. All came with vegetables, potatoes and a dish of side salad. All 4 dishes were beautiful (I made a point of trying!!). Portions were generous and the lamb in particular was beautiful and tender. My friend said it was the best lamb she had eaten in some time. The vegetables were cooked just right - not too soft. The only thing I would say is that there was no need for the 4 dishes of side salad with the mains. There was more than enough with the potatoes and vegetables.

The staff were very welcoming and professional. Service was efficient. Music was nice and not too loud. All in all a good expeirience and I would recommend to others.
