Disguised from the outside by the large parking lot and well trafficked roads, Olio has a charm once you are inside which is only surpassed by the delicious food and the comfortable service....

Love the fresh ingredients and how they offer some favorites as well as push the envelope with some flavors that you may not normally use.

The food here is EXCELLENT! OMG the hotel we stayed at recommended it and I'm glad we took their advice! First off the bread was yummy....warm and they had an oil mixture for dipping. We had some kind of a fish roll up and calamari for appetizers that were out of this world tasty. My husband and I had shrimp,... More

We had not been to Olios in several years. They prepare each meal individually, which is nice for me due to being gluten free for Medical reasons. Wemlook forward to returning there as one of our favorite places and recommend it highly!

I found this place on the way back from the casinos I saw that it had to be some decent reviews so I figured I'd give it a try. The place has great atmosphere good food and very friendly staff. The restaurant is also right off the highway which makes it convenient I would definitely try it again !

We are a military family with kids and we were kind of hesitant to bring our kids to a fine dining restaurant. Our server Marisol was very accomodating even with the kids. We felt her warm welcome and suggested kids... More

My Son's family and I had a wonderful meal but when we didn't order cocktails the waitress stopped being attentive. We needed more water and our waitress was nowhere around until we needed the check. To bad that a waitress can ruin a other wise great experienced.
