Amazing niche on a busy road surrounded by gas stations and businesses. Open the door and enter the warmth of a family of eaters drinkers and gracious staff. Also can't tell who's who. I love the bar nestled within one side of the floor. Cozy sexy lighting to perfection. Now the food. Signature dishes and wine selection at affordable prices.... More

Interesting choices on the menu like calamari salad and blu cheese stuffed chicken breastfeeding and mashed potatoes. It was different for me at least. Great food, but not a full bar (there is no draft... Sad day). All in all not bad.

We have been talking about going to this place for quite a few years. We finally went there for lunch. The service was average. The food was very good although I had a grill cheese with lobster and avocado and all you could taste was the cheese. My wife had the roasted vegetable sandwich which was very good. The place...

All three of us enjoyed our entrees that were medium priced. The ambiance was casual and dimly lighted for dinner. The lobster stuffed avocado was very special. The avocado was perfectly ripe!

Leslie and I recently went to Olio for dinner. I had been here several times before. The dinner menu was ok and the beer selection was limited so if you are looking for beer, look elsewhere. I ordered the scallops and pasta. The dish was tasty enough but for the price I would have expected more that 4 small scallops.... More

On a random, Friday night, " do you feel like having a drink and a bite" with my wife, we were not surprised how thrilled we were to have chosen going back to Olio! It's been some time since our last visit (which was just as perfect), but it was so nice to be able to dine at the bar... More

Disguised from the outside by the large parking lot and well trafficked roads, Olio has a charm once you are inside which is only surpassed by the delicious food and the comfortable service....

Love the fresh ingredients and how they offer some favorites as well as push the envelope with some flavors that you may not normally use.

The food here is EXCELLENT! OMG the hotel we stayed at recommended it and I'm glad we took their advice! First off the bread was yummy....warm and they had an oil mixture for dipping. We had some kind of a fish roll up and calamari for appetizers that were out of this world tasty. My husband and I had shrimp,... More
