The food is very good, but the restaurant can get loud and hard to chat with your date. The service is always too notch.

We had a great meal at Olio's last month when we were staying overnight in Groton. The restaurant had been recommended by several people and they were right. Great food, atmosphere and the service couldn't have been any better.
