Oliva is located just off the Beltline at Old Sauk Road on Madison's west side. There are a number of ethnic restaurants in the same shopping area. Surface parking is readily available. The restaurant is spacious, well decorated, and quiet enough for conversation over dinner....More

Service was excellent and a great meals. The shrimp Mediterranean was very good with an ample portion but not enough rice. 3.99 for more rice than what came with the dinner. Also,they were not skimpy on the salad dressing for the side salad.

Very varied and international menu...everything is cooked fresh and it is apparent. Service is excellent and low-key...it is large enough that you don't feel cramped or crowded. Plan on spending some time...they don't rush and you won't want to either.
