This is a wonderful place for a group of friends or a dinner alone with a friend. We love the food and the service. The lemoncello dessert is out of this world and I've never had better prepared salmon. Can't do much better. Plus it's reasonably priced!

Quite and elegant
We went on a week night and it wasn't crowded. Service was wonderful. Lots of choices on the menu. Food was full of flavor. Nice selection of wine.

Mission Hills Italian
If you haven't tried this little, neighborhood, Italian gem, "do so". The food is really great and the service is casual but attentive.
Very nice selection of Italian (and other) wines at a reasonable price.

Olivetto is fabulous! The service is phenomenal and the food is superb with great wine list options! Love the staff!

Delightful place with nice Itailian food. Very classic. Service was great, warm, friendly. Looking forward to going back soon.

Excellent find n Mission Hulls with the added benefit of an outdoor patio. Very good menu choices and Ii highly recommend sharing a pasta item and then ordering a mian course whcih comes with two vegetables. Try the chicken parma as it is delicious. Save room for the tiramisou made daily in their kitchen. This place was a real find.

Sunday afternoon lunch
Went for lunch to celebrate my birthday, and we all enjoyed our entrees. The salmon salad special was extraordinary, followed by the chicken/pesto panini sandwich. The shrimp salad special was tasty, however, a bit skimpy on the number of shrimp (4).
Our server was delightful and very attentive. Would like to go back for happy hour someday!

Olivetto is always fantastic! Great food, outstanding service, and an all around fabulous dining experience consistently! Love Jill, Giovanni, and our water man is the best!

Great Italian in Mission Hills
If you have not tried this restaurant you are missing out on a great Italian meal. It is small and personal and the pasta's, especially the specials, are always the best. Service is attentive but not rushed and a very good and reasonable wine list.
Give it a try.

Great, as always!
A huge thank you to Jill for always providing excellent service and making everyone's day brighter! Giovanni and Tudor are also so great, but they were not our waiter for this visit. The food was fantastic and the wine lovely. I love the spaghetti here, but this time I had the halibut and it was light and flaky with flavorful vegetables. So good! Hector never lets anyone done and does a great job ensuring water glasses are always filled. What a great group of servers! Angelo has put together an amazing team of professionals and I can't wait to come back for more! Cheers!

Love this place and the service!
Great food & service! Love Jill, Giovanni, Tudor, & Hector! Thanks for such great food, care, and attention! We come back time & again due to the service. I recommend someone at the door for seating new arrivals and for keeping an eye out so no one dines and dashes (management responsibility here). Not everyone can be a good server. I takes desire, experience, and time. This team of servers are very impressive! Well done, Angelo! You define the type of business you want by how you treat your servers. If you treat them well, they will treat their patrons well, and patrons will keep coming back. Everyone wins!

Had the chicken florentine , it was the best I've ever eaten. The sauce was to die for. Congrats on the new owners!

Another perfectly delicious meal!
What a lovely way to spend the evening! In the back of the restaurant is a lovely little patio that is quite and not many people know about it, so if you want a nice quite dining experience in fresh air this is a great option. The bruschetta, carpaccio, and antipasto Italiano are all fantastic. On this trip I enjoyed the lovely carpaccio, so good and I love the little capers with the best olive oil lightly over the greens on top of the beautiful thinly sliced fillets, so delicious! A couple other great options are scaloppine al limone (excellent!), salmon alle livornese, and pollo al marsala. Giovanni, Hector, and Mario all took great care that our glasses were always full and meals were timed perfectly. Olivetto, highly recommended!

Better each Visit
The food and service gets better each time I have eaten here. The chef really knowss how to properly prepare delicious Italian food.. The chicken parm is prepared to perfection and is made with thinly pounded breast just like it should be. Our waiter was attentiive but not intrusive.

A Gem in Mission Hills
If you haven't tried this Italian gem you are definitely missing the boat. It is small, service is great and the food is expertly prepared.
We have tried most of the dishes and they are all very good and the wine list (even by the glass) is really good.
Very reasonably priced and definitely a local favorite.
8/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good sound level
I chose this restaurant to have dinner with a friend because on a previous night the noise level was so non-existent I knew I"d be able to catch up and have a nice conversation without having to strain to be a part of a conversation. The service did start out quite slow but once we got his attention and let him know we were ready it was steady. Food was excellent.

Italian in Hillcrest
We eat here often and have never been disappointed. If you haven't tried it you are missing a great experience. Small, casual, very good food and service. As for food, if you like pasta and seafood you should try their spaghetti and seafood dish, the very best.

Whether a standard like Veal
Whether a standard like Veal piccata or a special of the day the food is always well prepared and tasty. The waiters are professional and attentive. the wine list is good and reasonably priced.

Yummy wine and pasta
We came here on a Thursday night and it was pretty quiet. I got the butternut squash ravioli and it was amazing. Hubby got the lasagna which was also delicious. Good date night spot in Mission Hills!

I enjoyed our dinner. Not quite as kid friendly as we need.

The lasagna was well worth the visit. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at this restaurant and we look forward to have many more celebrations at this venue. If you are looking for good food away from the craziness of downtown go here.

Consistent, Adaptable, GREAT people
This neighborhood gem is great for a late lunch, happy hour or full-on dining experience with the patio and indoor seating. You won't find any friendlier staff and a passionate owner who strives to please everyone. They make you feel like part of the family. Lasagna rocks, chicken maidera is wonderful, carpaccio fabulous and tiramisou lovely. Try it. You'll like it.

The service was wonderful, but not hovering. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was quaint and cozy. I will definitely be back.

Great neighborhood gem
We were looking for an restaurant with easy parking and good food before theater. Olivetto has plenty of parking around. Attentive staff, yummy food, plenty of variety.

I recommend the blackened salmon salad.... Delicious and more than plenty for a lunch portion.

Birthday dinner for 7
No longer living in the area, but I love this neighborhood place. Food is great and surroundings very pleasant; lively, but subdued enough to hear the conversation. We had the Carpaccio and salads to start, then salmon, veal, lasagne and chicken entrees. All were wonderful. Gelati (pistachio, hazelnut and chocolate) were the final treats. All guests enjoyed the outing. Mille Grazie, Olivetto Ristorante!

Always a great place to go have a casual Italian meal.
If you have not be sure to try the pasta with seafood, the flavor and sauce are outstanding.
