Best restaurant by miles in the area. Great choice of menu and great service. Look out for the fish cooked with tomato and olives in a foil and fresh crab salad.

I had a birthday celebration dinner with friends here in Oliveto. The place is like an old house turned into a restaurant with a mini-bar, located in a residential alley. By requesting the management, removing the abaya for us ladies is such a big relief to show off our nice dresses for the dinner. The food is quite fine, the... More

The pasta are one of the very best in Khobar. The interesting item in the menu for me is 'Make your own Pasta'. It allows me to try different combinations and the result is always awesome. Prompt delivery .

I am a regular visitor to Oliveto. We enjoy the hospitality and friendly team each and every time. Try the "Hamoor" fish rock-salt rapped .

I was craving for melanzane parmigiana and hubby surprised me with Italian dinner. From the outside OLIVETO looks unassuming but inside gives the feeling of being invited to a dear friend's house. It's homey and service was superb and the dishes were benissimo!

My husband and I dined at Oliveto, is located in a house, although it may seem simple in the outside, it is worth trying. We were very well received, the service was very attentive. What differentiated from some other Italian restaurants is that the food seemed much more homemade. Maybe they could improve is by adding any additional exclusive dish... More
