Called in our order for curbside. Dinner was as delicious as if you were eating inside. We were also delighted that they added some of their wonderful bread.

Twenty years! We have been Oliva’s patrons for that long and are still ”Stunned” by how wonderful the dining experience is at this incredible restaurant! Chef Riad’s cuisine captures your imagination and his front of house staff is simply superb!

Had dinner here for the first time since they moved. The new location is lovely and our waitress was great!! The prix fixe options were good and the portions perfect. Everyone in our party enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We will all be back.

The Prixe Fix Dinner menu offers some tasty choices. Must try The Carmelized Bosc Pear with gorgonzola, pecans, & balsamic, over greens. Delicious and good sized portions. The hummus is also the best. Can't wait to go again.

Oliva has earned its reputation over many years as one of the best casual but delectable restaurants in Litchfield County for a l-o-n-g time now.....20 years, perhaps? However long it has been, the place remains a gem. Great food, good wines, lovely people, affordable prices,...who could ask for more? Go.More

Since they moved to a small location, much more manageable the food has gotten better and better. This is now one of our favorite restaurants in the area. A lovely selection of wine at fair prices. It is a Mediterranean-style restaurant with great lamb shank,...chicken imposters. I highly recommend having a lovely dinner in this out-of-the-way spot.More

wonderful mezzes, good pizza, and warming entrees. If you like Moroccan dishes, there are plenty to try, and if you are in the mood for pizza and pasta, it's here too. fun, cozy on a fall night, and the space makes conversation possible.

Six of us went for their "prix fixe", or one price for dinner, menu on a Wednesday. I went bonkers over how good the hummus appetizer was, with his own pita warm pita bread. The service is good, a bit loud environment, and dinner was...okay. i am not thrilled with is wine selection.More

Dining here is like dining in someone's vintage house. The setting is cozy and the service is attentive. The food is the star of the show. Everything was fresh and beautifully seasoned. Many of the dishes have a Mediterranean hint. The portions are generous and...no one comes away hungry. My shrimp dish was delectable and I still remember the flavours two days later. A worthy dining experience.More

We have been going to Oliva's for many years, first with the family and now as a couple; first in New Preston and now in Bethlehem!! Joanna is the best, a gracious host. The decor is warm and inviting. Once there was a loud group...of five or six men at a table next to us. Luckily, we we nearly finished eating. I think the appetizers are the best offerings here. I like light food in general. Other offerings are heavier, such as lamb shank. Definitely visit this restaurant.More
