Went to Olivia's on a Friday night. Pat waited on us and did a wonderful job. The three of us got The Lamb Kabob Dinner, Haddock Italiano and an Eggplant Parm. Everything was cooked perfectly except the lamb which I wanted medium rare. The lamb kabobs were tasty but well-done and they were presented on my plate on metal skewers... More

You cannot go wrong with any item on the menu. They have really good daily specials as well. We go out on Saturday for supper. The place fills up fast, we like to grab a seat between 4-4:30, never had to wait. The staff is friendly and the chef is on his game.

We visited Olivia's for the first time and found it to be a cozy, inviting, and tasty restaurant. We had great service and the meals were ample. A side of carrots was slightly overcooked, but the fried clam appetizer was good. My shrimp scampi was also good, and provided enough for another meal.

Excellent food and a very large menu. I got a Penne Vodka with chicken and told them to leave out the ham. It was amazing. I also got a salad. I had enough left over for another meal. We also got a bottle of Chianti which was very good too.

This is a very good Italian restaurant in the center of Haverhill. I really do enjoy eating good food. My wife is 100% Italian and 100% a good cook, so I have a point of reference here. It's very good.

I work in Boston so very familiar with Boston's North End restaurants. Olivia's is as good as any in Boston.Fresh ingredients and authentic Italian flavors. Always have leftovers which taste even better the next day. Great owners since they own Krueggers also.

Last time I ate at Olivia I was excited to see they had GF Pasta however when I got my meal it was mush. Won't be going back again.

Still our favorite Haverhill restaurant, but I feel they are loosing a little energy. Please pump it up a little. Seems they have lost their best Chef, and they don't offer the same changing list of specials that we enjoyed. Drinks are still great ( same bar tender for a few years) prices are creeping up.. ok.... I'm willing to... More
