My husband and I went here for lunch and the lunch servings were so big we took half of it home and had it for dinner. Warmed up great and was just as good the second time. Bread was delicious too.

Had lunch there. Service was prompt and friendly. The salads were delicious. Get the house dressing. The toasted ravioli reminded me of St Louis.

We ate at The Olive Pit on a Saturday night and had fantastic service! The food was delicious! We were quite surprised with their twist on traditional Italian dishes- and we loved it! We will definitely return when in Paris!

Pleasant but small dining area. Waitress was very attentive. Shrimp was slightly overcooked but hot and flavorful. Parmesan potatoes were excellent. All in all a good meal and would definitely try again next time we are in town.

Service was good but I ordered the parmesan chicken and it was literally a deep fried chicken strip with spaghetti sauce on it.... Definitely not worth the 45 min wait to be seated

Fabulous Italian Cuisine - this is NOT Olive Garden! This is very authentic, beautifully presented, excellent tasting Italian dishes. Lunch offerings are the dinner entrees, but smaller - just perfect. Always busy with professional and excellent Customer Service. Bring your own wine - no corking...More
