Another disappointment after Covid. A restaurant that use to be a good go to for lunch has now made our “Do Not Return “ list. What was a clean friendly eating place is now a dirty,bad smelling hole in the corner of the shopping center....The bathroom was disgusting. The food was less than mediocre. We have not been there since the covid shutdown and can only conclude that the effects were beyond their capabilities to maintain the level of performance.More

Four of us stopped by Olivia’s the other night. Two started with Pasta Soup and two with salads. These come included with the entree. The soups were said to be very good. The salads were standard issue inexpensive Italian Restaurant salads, but they were fresh....My wife’s entree, Buratta stuffed Ravioli in a mushroom sauce was very good. The spaghetti with red clam sauce was said to be very good. The spaghetti with red seafood sauce was also said to be very good. My Chicken Parm was a disappointment. The cheese was barely melted and the chicken breast was not coated before cooking. I read a few reviews where the Chicken Parm was praised, so maybe this was just a bad example. If it is cold and windy when you visit, the restaurant will be chilly. BYOB.More

Olivia’s never disappoints! Best Italian food in Little Silver!! We usually pick up but their delivery service is also quite good! Eggplant rolentini is great as well as chicken parm.

Diverse group of salads, pasta and huge steak sandwich pleased everyone. One senior ordered a child portion as was more than satisfied. Growing up in Philly I know steak sandwiches; this one was/is entirely satisfying (very good bun choice). We didn't get pizza, but everything...looks good and the price is quite fair. Almost hidden to the side of the supermarket but look for it.More

Whether you’re looking for a specialty pizza, great Italian meal, antipasto, etc., Olivia’s is your place. Yup, it’s a hole in the wall—tucked in the corner of the Acme parking lot. Service is pretty good. But food is great, and prices very reasonable. This place...BYOB too! It’s tiny inside, so you might have a bit of a wait. I do believe they’ll take a reservation. I recommend Olivia’s.More

Regular customer at Olivia's since it opened. Not the best seating to be had but they make up for it in service (thanks Dawn), the food and the price is hard to beat for what you get. All of the soups and salads are outstanding....Mussels are plump and spicy. The meals are bountiful and you will have to take some home, Hard to get seating as they don't tale reservations so go early.More

Food and prices are great. The owner need to watch his language/conversation when talking to people at the counter. He a tendency to curse or yell at his employees in front of customers. Other than that the food is awesome. He gets his bread from...Brooklyn along with the desserts. His prices are fair. I have used him for a few events and he he is always consistent.

Everything we have ordered here has been delicious. The entrees are huge- they can feed 2 people.The appetizers are also very large so try not to order too much or you won't be able to eat your entree.

We stopped at Olivia's for lunch. Our first visit. We split a whole cheese steak sandwich which was more than sufficient. The bread was excellent. It reminded us of the bread we eat as youngsters. I am looking forward to going back to enjoy another...sandwich. The restaurant is hidden in the back corner of a shopping center but is well worth looking for.More

Olivia's Trattoria is a hidden gem in Little Silver that the locals from all around from nearby beach towns and Rumson know the food is excellent. The lasagna is one of my favorites and it's authentic Italian. The pizza is outstanding and the secret is...in the sauce! When you make your way to the Jersey shore finish your day off with dinner here. You won't be disappointed.More
