First Time Dining
This was my first time dining at Olio Pizza e Piu and I must say it was a good one! The atmosphere of the restaurant gave you the feeling as if you were in a restaurant in Tuscany. Their insalata di pera was excellent, very sweet and savory. I also enjoyed their Nostrana pizza which consisted of ricotta, prosciutto and truffle oil. One thing I really liked about this restaurant was that they were open 24hours! Now if I am in the neighborhood and want a bite to eat I know just where to go!

Went with some friends and
Went with some friends and everything we had was great. The calamari was crisp and the salmon was delicious. Definitely would recommend this place. We had an 8pm but were seated at 825. Granted we arrived 10 after. It's hopping but you need to make a reservation otherwise be prepared to wait.

Rainy afternoon but no rush at all
Our afternoon plans didn't work out and when it began to rain, we found ourselves with 3 hours to kill before an evening concert during the week. Staff were most welcoming and made us feel very comfortable at a window table with wine and appetizers until it was time to order dinner. The calamari was excellent and I had a Pasta with Short Ribs dish and my husband had the chicken breast. A very relaxing rainy afternoon and another really good meal.

Nice casual spot for dinner
Our group of six enjoyed our dinner at Olio. Typical Italian food that was well prepared and reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere. We had to laugh at the over-confident server, who was very cavalier in taking the orders and then managed to deliver most of the dishes to the wrong person. Otherwise, it was a pleasant evening.

I booked this for a larger mother's day reservation that included kids. The ambiance is really nice with sky lights, large doors leading outside and lots of flowers. The food both pizza and other brunch items was delicious and will certainly keep this in mind for future lunches and dinners.

Fabulous outdoor dining and food
The outdoor setting is one of the best I've ever been in and our server was excellent. We ordered 3 appetizers and 3 pizza's. All were amazing in particular we all loved the Ricotta spread on grilled toast drizzeled in truffle oil. Would definately go there again.

Best Bolognese we've had for awhile
This is my daughter's go to dish and she order's it all the time with this being the best in awhile. Loved the Ricotta Brushetta appetizer. Gorgeous outdoor dining.

Wonderful restaurant in Greenwich
Wonderful restaurant in Greenwich Village, open late (not 24hours anymore). Would definitely go back. The ricotta pizza was delicious.

Great food, poor service
The food here is great - this was my third visit, and it does not disappoint. The Fiorentina salad was delicious (and a huge portion), as was the melanzane appetizer, the Nostrana pizza and the Pizza Tartufo. However, our service was not great. Our server had such an attitude - we asked her for balsamic vinegar, and she responded that other tables had the bottles and we would have to wait. She also made a face at my friend who ordered a third drink. She checked on our food a bit too much for our comfort, and when we asked her what she recommended on the menu, she basically read every since item on the menu....

My girlfriend and I have always wanted to come here because it looks so lovely, like a secret garden. My uncle was in town visiting from China and we decided to this was our chance. The service was incredible, our Serbian waitress gave awesome recommendations and created a wonderful, comfortable environment. The wine, the appetizers and our entrees were amazing, every course bringing new flavors and delicious bites. We finished off with an amazing gelato, espresso, amaretto combo and left with nothing but the greatest impression. The best thing is that they are open 24-7! A great spot to take advantage of when you are out late and want something great.

Charming little restaurant
Charming little restaurant with European ambience. Large selection of pizzas and pasta; well-prepared. Waitstaff is friendly, helpful, accommodating, and eager to please. Had a very pleasant dining experience. Will definitely go back for informal, casual meals.

Slow service - great food
My table of 3 girls ordered a pizza and salad to share. It took AGES for these two simple dishes to arrive. But when they did, it was delicious!

Classic Italian fare with a twist
We were tired and out of imagination after a long day sight-seeing with our first-time visitor to New York. Olio Pizza e Piu is a short walk from our accommodation. But our evening there was not a consolation prize. Food was excellent, ambience just right and service was outstanding. My husband had been on a prior visit. He's Dutch, I am of Italian origin, my dining companion is Norwegian, and we were all equally impressed. The menu lists all the classic Italian dishes, with some regional quirks thrown in, like ricotta salata and cavatelli. The shrimp in my companion's spaghetti were enormous. My husband's calzone was just right, not too salty -- the usual problem with pizza toppings -- and my cavatelli light enough for a late night meal.

Family Dinner at Olio è Piu
I took my family to this restaurant a few days ago when they came into town as they had something on the menu for everyone, We started off our meal with the proscuitto and fig which was amazing! Then my mom and I shared the insalata di pera which had arrugala pears, gorgonzola cheese and walnuts, so tasty and refreshing. For dinner we all ordered a pizza, mom and I shared the Margherita, dad had the mezza luna and my brother created his own. All in all we had a great time, the food was awesome, my only note is that our waitress could have been a bit more attentive, howvever it did get busy so that might have had something to do with it.
