We ate at Olivieri twice during our stay in town and all the food was simple but perfectly prepared. Particular mention goes to the spaghetti with clams and the tiramisu; both were fabulous. Service was laid back and very friendly. Well worth a visit.

Hello, We were at this restaurant for dinner and we had a good time. The service was good and also the food. Good selection of wines. They have a few tables outside and is very good for a peaceful night. Enjoy!

We chose this restaurant, which is on the main route through the town, because it was so popular, particularly with the locals. A beaming waitress showed us to our table and was very attentive, surprising because the place was so busy. The food was prompt...More
