Great Pizzas-delicious Italian food. Great service and very noisy!! There's a buzz about Oliveto a favourite for local Eaton Square families.

My favorite place for casual dinners in cheerful surroundings. Excellent for pizzas and pastas but not only! I have been dining here for many years now and the high standard remains unchanged! You can hardly have a better pasta or pizza in London at any price! The pasta with fresh crab meet is legendary as is the panna cotta!

The food was wonderful, and the service polite and capable. Perfect for post-theatre. However, this is not where to go for a romantic dinner. It is a busy place, and the room is just loud--even though no one in it is actually BEING loud!

Just had lunch at Oliveto on the recommendation of a friend who raved about the pizzas. We weren't disappointed- they were big, thin crust and a generous topping. Starters were also spot on - we had the squid stew and Tuna carpaccio. Good atmosphere which on the negative side meant it was quite noisy. We will be trying all their... More

Sardinian style food operated, cooked and served very well by Italians. Excellent pizzas and pastas and good house red in a very casual but comfortable space. Accoustics are not great when it is full but a good fun place with authentic food. £186 for 5 including house wine.

We loved our dinner here, it was like being transported back to Italy. The waiters were so Italian that watching them in action was like a show. The menu had many great options and we really enjoyed the meals we ordered.

Walking distance from Victoria. Quite small so better make a reservation. Food is very good, and as anywhere in London a bit expensive. Also pizza is good. Something to try

Went to Oliveto in July 2016. We ordered pizza to share, as they looked quite big. The pizza was really nice, tasted like a proper Italian pizza. The service was okay, maybe a bit slow. The only problem was, the place is a bit cramped and because of that there is a lot of noise. Prices are okay.

I've been here several times with a colleague on business and we love it. The food is reliably good and there is a great mix of business and leisure customers. A go to place if you're in Victoria/Belgravia.

My friend and I went to Oliveto in Belgravia last Sunday. Never again. Despite the quality of the pizza being quite good, the customer service was awful and the air conditioning was too low, we were freezing. The slim Italian waiter took our order without even looking us in the eyes, he was more interested in watching outside the window... More

Staying in Belgravia

Neighbourhood Profile
Belgravia
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.
