The first time we went, we had a delicious meal and our server, Anne, was exceptionally good. We shared everything, as usual. We ordered a Scurati Nero d’Avola Terre Siciliane 2012, Azienda Agricola Ceuso, Trapani, Italy ($37) and liked it. The bread that was brought was very good. We started with the Yellowtail crudo ($13) and thought it was tasty and appropriately spiced. The next appetizer we had was the sardines ($14) that were marinated in house described as follows: “Marinated Monterey Bay sardines with fire-roasted peppers, fried shallots, and French Breakfast radishes.” Yum! For our entrée, we had the Charcoal-grilled pigeon with Chanterelle mushrooms, crispy riso nero, Fontina cheese, and rosemary ($32). It was excellent but we couldn’t finish it! The crispy riso nero was an unique ball of a rice and cheese mixture that was made crispy somehow. We loved the dish. We couldn’t eat any dessert we were so full. We spent $104.64 plus tip. The second time we went to Oliveto, we went for their special “Oceana” menu and were very unhappy with the quality and the quantity of the dishes.
