I could write this review quite short. Imagine a mediocre Strada, but multiply the bill by a factor of 3.
For some reason my expectations differed wildly to reality. Having had a great visit to one of the sister restaurants some time ago, I thought Oliveto would at least justify the rather hefty price level. Truth is, it isn't even close. Apart from the dimmed lighting, this could have been part of any chain imaginable; Zizi, Strada, Pizza Express etc. The sad this was that the food actually was passable, but the problems were the poor service, the cheap chain-like decoration and the fast-food like atmosphere.
The only reason I ended up here was the fact that we had drinks across the road at Thomas Cubitt. It's clear that we should've stayed there for dinner.
