“Best Italian Food in Morgantown”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Oliveiro's has lovely, homemade, Italian food. The eggplant parmesan is superb, as are the other dishes we've tried. Oliveiro's hasn't got a lot of ambience, but there is a terrace overlooking the river which is special when the weather permits. One downside is no reservations per se; you can register to show up at a certain time, and they will put you in the front of the line. And, yes, there often is a line, and for good reason.

“Excellent”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

The vodka sauce was to die for and the bread sticks are addictive. The beet salad was really good as well. All the meals at our table of 6 were enjoyed immensely.

“The Celebration Restaurant”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

I started going to Oliverio's when my son started at WVU. This was the restaurant that kids have their parents take them to. It is wonderful. The menu is extensive and it is a bit of a Morgantown institution. They have the most amazing fresh breadsticks and I always found it hard to turn down veal milanese with white beans. There is something for everybody here--even pizza. We liked this restaurant so much that it was the place where we had the celebratory graduation dinner for our son and his girlfriend

“Not as good as the original!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This restaurant is located in a very cool section of town and their sister restaurant in Clarksburg,WV is very good. That being said, I went in expecting a great experience. What I got was slow service and food that was not nearly as good as the location in Clarksburg. I have since tried this restaurant several more times only to get the same result. I wish I could say better things but it just doesn't perform like it should.

“Good Italian food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This restaurant is a local favorite for special occasions. They specialize in Italian food, and have very good Italian food. If the weather is nice you can eat outside on a deck. They can be quite crowded at times-especially home football weekends and graduation weekend.
