Was here the other day for a quick early meal on a Saturday. We didn't have a booking but the fitted us in, no hassle. Pizza was good, and the cheese cake is one of the best ever! I'd definitely go back.

Hands down the best Italian pizza I've had outside of Italy and that was based on a take-away. We ordered and walked out with our pizzas within 10 minutes on a Saturday night, pretty good. The restaurant is modern and simple and is centred around the large stone pizza oven which gives it a real Italian feel. All I need now is an excuse to go back ;)

Was here for a meal the other day. I was very impressed. I'll start off by saying the only bad thing I can think of about the place - it's too small! We managed to get seats at the bar (they might prefer to call it a counter) as there were no tables left, but I don't actually think that took away from the experience.
The food was excellent, beer was good (Peroni), the staff were friendly and relaxed (which I always think says alot about a place) and because we were at the bar already, there was no need to wave our hands about to get anyone's attention. So not really a bad thing after all....
I'd go back, I'd get take-away and I'd highly recommend....

was expecting ( rubbish) and got v. edible.
after 13 years living in Italy have never thought I would eat anything edible in and Italian / Irish restaurant ...as even the best are alway catered for Irish tastes not Italian ....DON'T FOOL YOURSELVES never they are always an Irish watered down version of an italian dish and that's o.k.....they have to sell what goes best in region.
however ....nice food / as in was impressed by it ( mussel soup v.good) don't think i'd do a pizza there though as even though they have italian people working there asked staff for a simple foccaccia and they brought out slices of bread ::::v irish not italian....italian should have brought the simple base of a pizza covered in olive oil, rosemary and salt , like a pizza we could break up and share with friends .
to conclude....nothing like you 'll get in italy but clean/good service and loyal to their version, despite nothing to do with the real thing i'd be back ..

Pizzas are not new to Ireland - thanks to Findus who made the concept of (frozen!) pizza mainstream back in the 80's. However, there's still not very many places in Dublin, let alone Ireland, where you can get a really authentic Italian pizza - i.e. a pizza where you need a micrometer to measure the depth of the base and that uses real mozzarella rather than some sort of cheddar hybrid - I can only name a handful of such places and Oliveto is one of them.
The decor is understated with the pizza making area being the focal point of the restaurant, a stonebake oven burns brightly on the backwall of this area, adding to the authenticity of the place while inviting in passers-by from the promenade. The pizza making area is also surrounded by a bar with stools so that you can sit and enjoy the whole process - it's a bit like an Italian take on a Japanese teppanyaki bar!
My pizza was made by, my main man, Ricardo, he explained what makes a good pizza and how important the consistency of the base is... he also put on a really good show which (as my lunchtime companion suggested) would be a clever way to keep kids entertained until their food arrives. As you would expect in an Italian restaurant, the coffee here is excellent.
All in all, a really good addition to the foodscape here in Dun Laoghaire and somewhere I'll definitely be going back to (for both lunch and dinner) - five stars from me!

Great little restaurant down on the pavillion. They have a big fire pizza oven in the restaurant and the pizza chef, from Sardinia (and its shows in the quality of the pizzas), makes everything right in front of you. For the same price as Milano's pizzas by numbers down the road its a no-brainer! Food is excellent - simple and authentic, real Italian flavours and lovely staff as well.
Haven't sampled nearly enough of their menu so I'm going back for more tomorrow !
