The Black Olive is a very nice high-end Italian restaurant. The place is small but intimate, white table cloths and flowers on the tables. The decor is nicely done. The service is usually very good, they sometimes have new hires that should have more training before they put them to work. The food is very good and they have a decent wine list. I understand it is under new management and have not been back yet to try. We sort of save the Black Olive for special occasions as they are priced on the high end for most of the dishes but the dishes are way above the average for Italian in the area. I believe they are only open for dinner now. They used to have birthday specials and a great New Years Eve dinner but I do not think they offer either one any longer.

Love the freshly made ravioli ....the butternut squash ones are fabulous! Get there early, and take advantage of the sunset special....such a deal!

I went with my family on a Monday evening and would suggest the restaurant to friends/family. A very pleasant atmosphere, great service, and good food.

Haven't been here in a while. Heard there was a new owner. The food was very good. A little pricey for the amount served but not too bad. Service was good but we felt a little rushed. My wife loved the rolled eggplant & my scampi was good. Four glasses of wine & dinner came to $65.00 excluding tip. We really like Gaetanos nearby but it can be very crowded & noisy. The full bar & music are nice too. Black Olive is nice if you want something quieter.
