Olio e Più Ratings and Reviews
This was a great find. It looks a little "Olive Garden"-like from outside, but inside it's old-school West Village: upholstered chairs, dim lighting, classic and unfussy Italian food and a good wine list. It's a perfect place for a meal pre-theater downtown, or even just to have dinner before a long city stroll.
Service was outstanding, attentive without being over the top and didn't feel like we were being rushed at all which given the fact it was valentine's night was somewhat surprising yet very welcome. Given bread olives and oil as an entree. We ordered a beetroot salad and a sprout dish as starters. Followed by shrimp and mushroom risotto and a clam linguini as mains. All food was exceptionally fresh and well prepared. Flavours were divine. Good selection of European beers and lagers. Cocktails also were well measured and prepared. Would not hesitate in returning time and again.
While the food was excellent our service was horrible. The waiter did not remember who got what dish, was unable/unwilling to honor requests, could not explain why one dish was not as represented and was downright rude. Additionally, the tables are so crowded that there is literally no room to move.
Overall we enjoyed our experience here, and I would probably go back. The downside is they *really* cram the tables in the restaurant and there is not enough staff to serve them all. Our waiter visited our table sporadically so we waited a long time to get orders in and then to request the check. Also a person in my party didn't get their main dish until the rest of the table had finished theirs so that was disappointing. The food was really tasty though so props for that!
It’s loud and tables are tightly packed, but it’s charming and the food was great. The only downside of our visit was the service. We were seated for 15 minutes before offered water, then our server took our order with no recommendations offered. Ordered three entrees for the two of us and an appetizer. All were good, and we had no regrets. After our plates were cleared we seem to have been forgotten. Had to finally ask for a dessert menu and asked they bring the check with dessert, since the server had been difficult to find. Dessert came 10 minutes later without the check anyway. When we finally got the check and paid my wife was visibly frustrated. Apparently she’d been able to see the server standing up near the hosts at the front chatting and smiling most the night behind me.
We came to celebrate moving out of New York after a few years here, and I must say I hope our next food scene can manage to pair good food with good service - New York is so often unable to do both!
To be fair, other tables around us were waited on with attentive staff, from what we could see. But our server took what could have been a memorable dining experience and made it quite average at Olio e Piu.
Nice vibe and atmosphere but non-pasta entrees extremely over-priced and underwhelming. Osso buco was overcooked and served with inadequate sauce to overcome how dried out the meat was. Waiter should have inquired why so much of the entree remained on my plate. If you want to charge $46, at least make it edible. Had I ordered pasta and/or pizza I probably would have had a different experience.
Came for a birthday with a family of four. Food was great, serice was impeccable. Highlyg recommended for an occasion or for regaulr dining. Only minor comment relates to miscoordination in clearing appetizer plateware before main courses arrived - there was no room to place anything on the smallish tables (especially when seating four).
A wonderful experience that should be shared.
Food is okay but probably not the best Italian food you can find in NYC. It's a bit overpriced for the quality, even though most pastas are handmade. It is well located but the venue is a bit oldish. Maybe in spring and summer, it's a different story with the outside seating.
Excellent food and attentive service - and a wine list filled with some lovely Italian reds. The only negatives were that seating is very tight and noise is high, at least it was on the Saturday night we went. Nonetheless, the kitchen put a perfect touch on all four of our meals - ranging from Gnocchi and steak to scallops and lamb chops. Bravissimo!
Excellent food and excellent service! We had the caprese salad with incredibly delicious burrata, very nice minestrone soup, and a really great calzone with spicy sopressata, and followed it up with a fabulous lemon ricotta panna cotta for dessert. Our waiter Ilir was very friendly, very attentive, and very cute :-)
We arrived on a Thursday evening at 5pm and it was not crowded nor noisy, just how we like it. Other times we've been here later in the evening or on a weekend and the noise can be cacophonous.
Excellent spot for Italian influenced dishes on Greenwich Ave. Have had several excellent meals here and always look forward to returning. Really enjoy the brunch and would like to try the restaurant for dinner because the menu looks great. Had delicious Caesar salad and baked eggs this time. Very comfortable atmosphere, good service, and an all around enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.
Margarita pizza, sauce was runny wouldn’t recommend this place for pizza or at least a margarita one. Cesar salad dressing has anchovies, is not marked on menu not was I told by the waiter. Waiters were slow and emotionless or at least the French guy. Cute place maybe the pasta is better than that pizza.
Phenomenal. I highly recommend trying this place. The mushroom ravioli was one of my favorite meals I’ve ever had. The service was also superb. The waiter made sure we had a very enjoyable experience without lingering around. It’s a pretty small place, so, it gets a little noisy. But, it still has a great ambiance.
The food and the waiter were excellent. Unfortunately we had to wait almost 30min for a table in spite of having a reservation. The bus men were a little too aggressive at wanting to take our plates while we were still clearly eating (maybe they have pressure to turn tables quickly?).
