On the contrary to the two previous reviews, I would have to say that our experience was great! It's Phenomenal! We are a military family with kids and we were kind of hesitant to bring our kids to a fine dining restaurant. Our server Marisol was very accomodating even with the kids. We felt her warm welcome and suggested kids... More

My Son's family and I had a wonderful meal but when we didn't order cocktails the waitress stopped being attentive. We needed more water and our waitress was nowhere around until we needed the check. To bad that a waitress can ruin a other wise great experienced.

I really love this place, their menu is great. It has classics on there but is so original compared to most restaurant, which is so refreshing. I had the Cobb salad, it was a quick business lunch so didn't want to order anything too big but it was lovely. We did order Olio's to-go for our last meeting & I... More

I've been to Olio's multiple times. Business and pleasure. Brought a business associate and was a little embarrassed. We arrived early and order the special. Told it was great (I had had it before) and we both ordered. After about 10 minutes the waitress came back and told us they only had one left. That was at 6 o'clock. So... More

I had a wonderful lobster stuffed avocado dish with corn and a herbed aioli. All of the meals at my table were delicious. We made reservations & service was great. Good choice of cocktail specials also.

Without a reservation on Parents Weekend at Conn College, we decided to try this spot. Granted it was early for Saturday night dining (5:30) but nonetheless, she scrambled to get us a table for 5. The menu was varied and the service was great.

We made a reservation and were seated right away. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I ordered a salad first which was simple but crisp and fresh and the pork loin which was unbelievably delicious! My husband had the muscles in red sauce. He was pleasantly surprised at the perfect amount of spice. He had a seafood dish and... More
