Excellent food and a very large menu. I got a Penne Vodka with chicken and told them to leave out the ham. It was amazing. I also got a salad. I had enough left over for another meal. We also got a bottle of Chianti which was very good too.

This is a very good Italian restaurant in the center of Haverhill. I really do enjoy eating good food. My wife is 100% Italian and 100% a good cook, so I have a point of reference here. It's very good.

I work in Boston so very familiar with Boston's North End restaurants. Olivia's is as good as any in Boston.Fresh ingredients and authentic Italian flavors. Always have leftovers which taste even better the next day. Great owners since they own Krueggers also.

Last time I ate at Olivia I was excited to see they had GF Pasta however when I got my meal it was mush. Won't be going back again.

Still our favorite Haverhill restaurant, but I feel they are loosing a little energy. Please pump it up a little. Seems they have lost their best Chef, and they don't offer the same changing list of specials that we enjoyed. Drinks are still great ( same bar tender for a few years) prices are creeping up.. ok.... I'm willing to... More

Nice warm baked rolls, Tula's Salad dressing and a selection of main dishes to choose from. I enjoyed the steak tips and asparagus. The steak tips came out perfectly medium rare and tender. Friendly, pleasant staff.
