Description: A cosy Italian restaurant with an excellent cuisine. It can be found at Pils laukums 4, near a park and opposite to the Riga Castle. This is the quieter part of the Old Town, a great place to hide from the crowd while still in the distance of a two minute slow walk from the Doma Square. The restaurant has a vast terrace with a view on a park and the Riga Castle during the summer. The restaurant has references to the film based on "The Godfather", the famous novel of Mario Puzo. The name of the restaurant is coming from the film too. The restaurant is divided into three relatively separate parts, each of them decorated in a different style. There is a Venice room with a six-seat table, a hall designed according to Sicilian tradition, and Sala Verde with a bar and checked table clothes. The warmth of interior painting together with antique breathing of a house in the Old Town of Riga creates a veritably homey atmosphere filling you up with agreeable peace and anticipation of a meal. And you will not be disappointed for the time spent in anticipation. The food is indeed that of the highest quality, with refined and balanced taste. Moreover, the prices are very reasonable. They have a thoroughly thought-out menu - classic, yet interesting, a menu where everyone, be it a vegetarian or a taste aesthete, can find his or her favourite dish. Seafood soups, pastas made at the restaurant, pizzas, brusquettas, traditional Italian snacks, meat and fish dishes are available there. And the dessert, of course, is an Italian classics - Tiramisu, Panna Cotta and other delights depending on the season. While you are waiting for your ordered meal, a waiter serves freshly baked bread with olives in a small basket. Italian restaurant "Olive Oil Trading Co." is one of the best combinations of location, interior, cuisine, and price that you will find in Riga. It can be most conveniently reached on foot.

We had dinner there in August 2013 with 2 children and 2 adults. I had white fish filet with beans- it was very good. The others had pasta. Our son loved his pasta with chicken and sundried tomatoes- it really was wonderful.
Overall it was a very nice place to eat and would recommend.

we found this resteurant by chance because it was in not so busy area but turned out to be a hidden gem with lovely food and nice staff and just round the corner from the grand palace hotel.

This was a perfect place to eat in the Old City. Very much a little piece of Italy. The price was good and the atmosphere was very appealing also, inside or on the summer terrace. We left very happy. Enjoyed a bottle of wine with fresh and tasty seafood tagliatelle and lamb steak, Tiramisu was a perfect end to our meal. Glad we found this place!

The location and outdoor seating is very nice. The margarita pizza had no taste, like eating dry bread with tasteless cheese, no fresh basil, couldn't taste any sauce. The pasta veggies had a very poor taste not a good blend of veggies, certainly not good Italian food. Cappuccino was also not good, not fresh coffee beans. Very disappointing food, considering the ambiance was great. I think the Italian restaurant next to central train station was a much better selection for food.
