One of a quartet of Sardinian restaurants in Belgravia, bubbly Oliveto attracts a younger crowd than its siblings – thanks largely to its terrific stone-baked pizzas. If a thin-crusted beauty
topped with, say, spiced Italian sausage and onions doesn’t take your fancy, there are also rousing and ‘imaginative’ pastas ranging from aubergine, walnut and ricotta ravioli to spaghetti with sea
urchins and chilli. To finish, bitter-honey frozen yoghurt beats tiramisu in the innovation stakes. The wine cellar tours the vineyards of Sardinia, or you can opt for a glass of the island’s hoppy
Ichnusa beer. A jazzy olive-leaf design and polished wooden tables create a good-time vibe, and smiley staff look like they’re enjoying themselves as they feed locals and tourists seeking a change
from the big chains. ‘Not fancy, just excellent’, chimes one fan.

The best pizza in London? But there's much more in the fresh, authentic starters and pasta dishes. An enduring favourite with young and old alike. Not fancy just excellent.
A simple restaurant offering excellent value for money.
Imaginative pastas cooked to perfection and pizzas that are amongst the best in London.
Friendly atmosphere and service.

The Olivo / Olivomare group has a great reputation which is why, to my shock, I was surprised at my experience at Oliveto. We made a reservation and walked to the restaurant from home, a 30 minute stroll on a late afternoon. Upon entering the restaurant with my buggy and new born baby, I was immediately met by the scornful manager who sternly ordered us to deposit our pram upstairs. Of course I would have been happy to do so – had it not been for her scathing manner. I asked her if she would make an exception as the restaurant was almost empty, and my 5 week old baby was sound asleep. Seeing that we have been patrons of Olivo and Olivomare for so many years, I thought she wouldn't mind. To my shock (and to the shock of the diners there) she started to raise her voice and ordered us out, pushing me with her hand, at which point my baby woke and started to cry. To be fair, it is a small restaurant and I understand the no pram policy, but her manner in instructing us was quite unbelievable. Some patrons who witnessed the scene came out and agreed that her behavious was extreme. I will not ever be going to Olivo or Olivomare ever again.
