"This restaurant has been around for decades and continues to produce excellent food and the service people are all top notch and very much care about how their customers are treated. Our daughter worked there during art school and she understands the restaurants attention to detail and the sourcing of their food. Just one of the best restaurants in the Bay Area!!"

"Oliveto's is a beautiful restaurant. Large but has a special system to control to noise level. Even when the restaurant is full one can speak at a normal level and one does not hear the tables nearby.
Great service, friendly and knowledgeable. Great strawberry gazpacho soup. I would not get the ribeye steak--way too much fat or the skirt steak not tender. Halibut not special either. I think the best dishes are pasta and appetizers.
Desserts are great, especially the white chocolate mousse. Wow.

"Oliveto was a great place for me and my family to have dinner. I went there with my parents and we had a lovely meal that was perfectly paced. The food was delicious and the wine menu was extensive. Our server recommended a great wine pairing with our halibut that me and my mom enjoyed. This is a great place for a special occasion with family, friends, or a significant other. I would definitely go again! Maybe for my next birthday ;)"

"I've been here in the past but went recently after several years absence for a birthday dinner and the meal was really excellent. I judge a restaurant to be "great" when every morsel of every bite of food is satisfying and that turned out to be the case with Oliveto. The portions are indeed small as another reviewer points out, but for high quality, that is expected and further, portions in most restaurants are usually too large. The pasta and gnocchi were superb, salad excellent and a stuffed chicken breast perfect. Dessert was a treat too. The prices are indeed steep so be prepared. But at least the food here is of high quality as the prices would suggest."

"We have been going to Oliveto's for almost 25 years, through many chefs. The dining room is one of the most pleasant in the Bay Area, esp. now with their Meyer sound system. One can truly talk to one's dining companions!
The food is generally very good, with many of their pastas being true stand outs. They often have intersting "twists" to their dishes but they aren't breaking new ground. It seems they don't change the menu drastically and if you revisit within a few weeks, the menu might not have changed at all.
It is a lovely place to dine, and we shall continue to patronize it for its many lovely attributes, but it's not a " happening" dining venue. That is both its strength and weakness."

"Been coming to Oliveto for a long time and the last three times they've really missed the mark. I used to consider it a very reliable shop, but now I'm not so sure. This time it was an unwieldy pile of mixed "lettuces" dressed with the moral equivalent of Good Seasons, a bowl of indifferent mushroom soup and a confusing plate of under-cooked bitter greens and a mushy, tail-end fish filet. Overall, disappointing. Given that this is the third time in a row I've felt slightly abused here, I don't think I'll be coming back. Which makes me a bit sad..."

"To begin with, our reservation was for 5:30 but we were kept waiting with a crowd of otheres until closer to 6 because the "restaurant was not ready". when we were seated, the atmosphere was quiet and lovely-service was good. Cocktails and wines by the glass were extremely expensive and the margarita was not great and served in a glass that held about 2 sips for 12$. My glass of cabernet was 20$ and a very small pour. For this reason alone,we probably won't eat here again, with the exception of maybe the Cafe downstairs, which is a better value. Our pasta dishes, while quite flavorful had two problems-very small portions and under cooked pasta,I'm talking beyond al dente under cooked. Soup and salad were excellent. overall, we left here feeling "ripped off' and this is never a good feeling. There are many other restaurant options in the area where this is not the case."

"Families and couples will find a relatively quiet dining space, comfortable for conversation and the reliable menu would satisfy all tastes. The bar mixes both old-fashioned and new drinks, and the dessert menu is a standout in case the portions weren't adequate for larger appetites."

"Had a delicious panini and pizza shared lunch. Quick service but not exactly smiling.
Everything should have been piping hot and was just barely warm. The upstairs area could have been a better option. The overall menu choice was really limited.
I walked away and went into Market Hall for where the really good food was.
