Outstanding – An excellent dining experience. The chicken breast stuffed with mushrooms and gorgonzola was amazing as were the scallops. The starters and pumpkin brulee were very good. Service was awesome. Chef-owner Gary checked up on our table personally. The prices are excellent considering the HIGH QUALITY! I will be returning again and again.
Great Food – I just love Olivio's. The food is excellent and you can't beat the price. I had one of the best rack of lamb that I have had in my life!! Plus, the complimentary starter is a great basket of bread and an artichoke with a balsamic dipping sauce. I also, had a perfect Grand Marnier souffle for desert. I was stuffed after my dinner. Great food and great prices. I will be back again!!
Hidden Gem! – ChefOwner Gary Maffia is the former ChefOwner of the long running 5 star restaurant Barbarosa, that used to be in Atherton. At his current venture Olivio's you get the same great food at a fraction of the price that you would have paid at Barbarosa. The food is moderatley priced, but the quality is that of the efforts of the classically trained Chef Maffia.
I suggest the Scallops Milanese or the Chicken Gorganzola. The Spinach Salad is a great way to start. If you are not sure what you want you can ask the Chef for suggestions on one of his frequent trips around the dining room to check on his customers.
Five Star food for a value!! – This place was recommended to me by some friends, and I was more than pleasantly surprised. The chef came out to our table and chatted with us for a bit, he was very courteous and hospitable. The food was also EXCELLENT! And the prices are definitely fair for the quality of food being served.
