Love visiting this restaurant. Best pizzas anywhere. Their Risotto is delicious, cooked just right and the Anti Pasta Platter is one of the best. Great place to bring kids. Staff very welcoming. Keep it up

Best pizza in the Dun Laoghaire area. Good prices on pizzas, wine prices a bit high for the range. Starter platers are always amazing for both meat and non-meat eaters. Great olives etc. This is my 'go-to' pizza place as everyone will find something to eat. Had book club there...and after dinner we finished our wine / coffees in the lobby for a nice chat. That was an added bonus to have the comfy lobby to rest after a big meal.

we had my sisters 40th here. just 8 of us and there was great atmosphere and the food was lovely. my favourite is the frito misto in the starters. i had the sharing board of cheese and meats. it comes with pesto, rocket salad, caper berries, a really tasty veg bowl AND different breads. We were stuffed after this and it was just 16euro. I had a starter of frito mist for my main. really good tartar sauce with it. the menu is not too big were you get bogged down with choice but enough where everyone get what they want. Ive been here loads of times and love it. good for family early in the evening and great for fun with friends after half eight.

Two of us went here for an evening meal on Saturday. While the food was excellent in terms of taste and presentation, the other highs and lows were not so good i.e. High prices and Low Lighting !! €22 for a half litre carafe of house red ! €16 for a shared starter board ! Mains about €5 above what you would expect to pay elsewhere. Table next to us had four people trying to read the menus with the torch light from their mobile devices and still had to use them when ordering from the floor staff ! I did the same when reading the bill and the waitress said that 'that's just the way it is here!'. This place seems more geared up for large parties than smaller ones. Excellent food (5 stars) but not enough to get us to return.

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.
