Came here for an excellent value lunch with 2 friends, seated right at the window looking out over the pier on a beautiful day. We had the homemade soup, bruschetta and the prawn linguine all of which were dinner size portions and well prepared,presnted and enjoyed. Quiet as it was lunch time but there is an excellent garden to the front also looking out of the pier and sea. Would recommend this spot on a nice day especially.

Our server spilled a half carafe of red wine all over the table but the accident was dealt with extremely well by her and her manager, cost items being taken off the bill without being asked. Good job by them but not for the first time, I found the atmosphere and food in Oliveto quite ordinary

It was buzzing on Saturday night - we went after the Leinster match (don't mention the war) The move to the Kingston Hotel seems to have given this restaurant a shot in the arm. It has lost some of it's authentic Italian feel. The service was friendly, and quick. There 6 of us and we all enjoyed our meals. It's not classic Italian but it does exactly what is says on the menu. I had the special starter of Game bruschetta, not bad. My wife had the deep fried vegs, she liked them. Most of us had pizzas from mains and again we were not dissapointed. Nothing spectacular but good all the same. House wine started at €25 which I feel is a bit too expensive. (it's a bit of a bug bear of mine)

This place is a bit on an enigma. It's not heavily promoted and is now resident in the once dumpy Kingston Hotel. The food is excellent and seasonal - it is a cut above other Italian restaurants in the area and the setting (& dining room) is lovely - especially in the summer months. Try pizza and pasta (& burger for lunch). Stay away from the Fritto Misto - soggy both times we ordered it. Give it a go all the same.

We dropped in here on Bank Holiday Sunday and the restaurant was quite busy, it is in a lovely location looking out onto the sea and there is a lovely seating area outside where you can bring your drink. We choose an Oliveto Board for two which consisted of Italian cured meats, bean salad, olives, pesto, Italian cheese salad and bread. This was lovely and tasty and was washed down with a glass of cider. The staff were very pleasant and efficient and the restaurant is spacious and welcoming. The only black mark is that they are unable to make a good Irish coffee, a shame because apart from that I liked Oliveto and would return. Prices are also in keeping with todays standards.

I went here with my boyfriend as it recently became his local. We had drinks at the bar while waiting for a table because there was a play on in the hotel. The staff were brilliant and sorted a table out. Really lovely warm atmosphere. Best Bruschetta I think I have ever had. We both opted for pizzas, lovely thin crust from their visible pizza oven. I had the Oliveto which was mozzarella, olives, rocket, plum tomatoes and parmesan. I polished the whole thing off. Highly recommended.

I've visited this restaurant a number of times for lunch and have always found the staff extremely professional and pleasant. The view of the sea from Olivetos is lovely, so the restaurant's location in Dun Laoghaire is ideal. My favourite dish here is the vegetarian anti pasto, which includes a selection of cheeses, salads, beans and roast marinated vegetables - all served with rustic bread. Fellow diners have also reported that the pizzas from their wood-fired ovens are delicious. The rich, luscious white chocolate cheese cake has also got rave reviews.

When to the new Oliveto in the Kingston Hotel. Very nice location looking over the sea and Dun Laoghaire Harbour. The service was very friendly, nothing too much trouble. I had a lovely pork based pasta, our table also had a huge pizza with spicy sausage and a mushroom & bacon pasta. All plates were cleared, alsways a good sign. Loads of space between the tables which is very welcome. Great to see Oliveto back here after their recent problems and the location is even better, especially if we get any sort of a summer. Definitely one to return to.

Oliveto has reopened in the Kingston Hotel, Dun Laoghaire, where they have taken over and refurbished the entire ground floor. We have eaten twice there and were very satisfied each time. There is a beautiful Victorian drawing room in what used to be the Peekers end of the building, where you can have a glass of Prosecco or other aperitif beside a blazing log fire (the real thing)before going to dinner - very welcome on a chilly February evening (they also serve afternoon teas in this attractive room at weekends, but we have not tried these). The restaurant is quite large, and very nicely lit and appointed - lots of tables with sea views which will be popular in summer. The food is good Italian, without being haute cuisin and, in terms of pricing, it is value for money. The service is quite outstanding - as charming as it is professional. They are waiting for their Pizza oven to be installed before they start promoting the restaurant, so it is fairly quiet at the moment. That didn't bother us - we found each of our visits delightful and will certainly return.
