The food really let down our visit to Oliveto. We received a lovely warm welcome, chose a nice table in the attractive restaurant, with great opera music playing and were quickly served by the young waiter (who remained attentive and friendly throughout). The wine we ordered was delicious, however, the rest of the evening went downhill when the food started to arrive! This restaurant has got lots of things right. However they have not quite managed the most important thing...the food!
The bread that arrived at the table was stodgy yet also stale (the dips were very good though). Our starters of deep fried mozeralla and calamari were and our mains of lobster ravioli and aubergine were bland, way too big and, again, stodgy. We ended up leaving fairly sick which was such a shame as this restaurant has a huge amount of potential if they can produce better food.
