When Olivetto closed at their previous premises in Dun Laoghaire, I was very disappointed as an evening spent over a meal there was always a delightful experience.
So when I heard Olivetto had opened again recently at The Kingston Hotel in Dun Laoghaire I was really pleased but a bit apprehensive about how the experience might have changed.
I need not have worried, as soon as you walk through the door you are met by the same friendly staff who worked for Olivetto previously.
The restaurant was spacious and had a tranquil but cheerful atmosphere and the views from the windows over looking Dun Laoghaire harbour pier and the sea just fabulous.
The menu has expanded (although I do hope they re-instate the rabbit terrine) and when our food came it was excellent.
Service was good and the prices seemed very reasonable.
Olivetto is back! and I am!
The location is great.
Went in again yesterday and it's easy to see the good word has spread as the restaurant was almost full for Sunday lunch which was very enjoyable.
