We enjoyed the food at Oliva. The menu had a lot to offer and the portions were a good size. The prices were a bit high. I was a little disappointed in the room we were seated in due to the many TVs showing sports. Had I wanted to watch a game I would have gone to a sports bar.

I went here with friends while visiting LA. It has a well done, casual interior and nice atmosphere. The service was almost too friendly, if somewhat slow. We did arrive just at the peak time to be fair. The food was good - a varied menu. I would return, although I have had better Italian food in the LA area.

This place came recommended by a local while I was in town on business. The restaurant is very fun and decorated nicely. It has a real Tuscan feel to it. The wait staff are all very attentive and right there, almost before you need something. The food was excellent. Even though they had several really good specials, I chose the chicken stuffed ravioli and wasn't disappointed. They have a great selection of wines as well. You really only have two options for parking, due to parking constraints in the area; either valet park or park around the corner at a manned parking lot for $3. I'm not sure what the valet charges, but the $3 was still worth it. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in the area.

Food is pretty good. Service staff can be rude.
