You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a genuine Italian kitchen when you enter this pleasantly decorated restaurant with its worn wooden floor and pasta wall. The chef’s menu (between three and five daily specials) is to be recommended. The à la carte menu includes delicious options like pork neck with balsamic onions, gem lettuce and purple cauliflower, or roasted bream fillet with prawns, shrimp arancini, creamed parsnip and beech mushrooms. Oliva uses organic produce whenever possible. The restaurant is also noted for its impressive wine list. And don’t forget to try its grappa and homemade limoncello.
