Attentive and helpful. I forgot my briefcase and iPad and they called me and I reclaimed it. It pwas a relief and I thank them
Our waitress was very nice...just the right amount of attention...then left us to enjoy ourselves. I had the pork. It was great and the veggie side was really good! Thanks!
We chose this place because it was tagged “Fit for Foodies”, had a reservation open, and was seemingly Italian (how can one go wrong with Italian?!?). The only thing available that night was a $95 prix fixe 4 course meal.
Walking in, it had the feel of a late 80s- early 90s banquet hall, but much much smaller. The acoustics weren’t too bad, except that we were seated so close to the other table that we could have a conversation with everyone else.
Food was awful. Tiny portions. Undercooked risotto. So. Much. Frisée.
Maybe this place is better when it has its normal menu, but that just means that they only care about making a cash grab on special holidays.
Attended the Vaentine's Day prix fixe dinner. Great food, wine, service. Will come back for same event next year.
Our Valentine dinner was disappointing. We were given a corner table next to a thoroughfare populated by kitchen and service personnel. We were not able to enjoy the floral centerpiece, just a side arrangement.
We waited a full fifteen minutes before the waiter's appearance when I placed an order of two martinis. After learning that the bar does not stock Plymouth gin, I requested Hendricks, and the waiter cheerfully acknowledged, "Yes, Tanqueray!" After we corrected the brand, he again assured us in a friendly manner, "and with tonic!" How can Oliveto impose a 20% charge with service like this?
Food highlights for me were the risotto and the duck sausage. The Kushi oyster is nothing special, and the accompanying shiso seems like a part of a tired twig. The cake dessert was dry and unappealing.
Altogether it was a rather uninspired and unromantic dining experience.
Fabulous meal! Lovely menu. My only complaint was that the crab salad had numerous shells. Other than that, the meal was excellent. And a lovely wine flight.
For Valentine’s day, my love and I enjoyed the prix fixe menu and the wine pairings that accompanied it. Each course was delicious. Fresh Maine lobster was featured. It was delicious. The crab parfait was also a highlight. From the fresh oysters to the chocolate mousse, what a brilliant dinner. The flower arrangements upstairs were so beautiful.
An absolute joy. My wife and I came here for Valentine’s Day. It was the kind of meal where you slow down just to savor the combinations of flavors and textures. The ambience was wonderful, the service excellent, and the food just outstanding.
Olivetto's is one of my favorite places for ambience and having a quiet romantic dinner. In terms of this it never disappoints. For a pre-Valentines meal the night before, though my partner was thrilled with his meat dishes, my pasta, which was the only vegetarian option, was pretty disappointing. It was supposted to have a wild mushroom ragu -- there was little evidence of mushrooms, but the main issue was over salting. It was like eating a salt block.
But everyone is off from time to time -- I'd recommend that they put a little more effort into the vegetarian options though.
