We have been to Olivardi on several occasions and have introduced friends to the restaurant as well. We have never been disappointed. The food is delicious, the waitstaff is fantastic. Wonderful place to share a fine dining experience.

I took two groups of colleagues for two different holiday lunches. Each group was approximately 8 people. The atmosphere was nice for a casual group get together and the food was also well done. I recommend this place for a comfortable company type of outings.
