From the Press
"Tucked away in the heart of Sherman Oaks. OlivA is a lot more than you might expect from a neighborhood Trattoria! The food is tasty and authentic, the atmosphere is cozy, the staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable. Look no further, this is the best Italian cuisine in Los Angeles. Don't forget thirsty Thursdays when $4 Martinis are served all night long! Oliva can also take care of your catering needs including a full bar anywhere in L.A."

"This charming family owned neighborhood trattoria serves straight-ahead Italian cuisine with an accent on seafood. The superstar of salad with Roasted Walnuts and Gorgonzola in Honey Vinaigrette. For starters; they have something you won't find everywhere in LA, there signature Pomegranate Beef Carpaccio and a Burrate Mozzarella that is out of this world! If you're in the mood for pasta, try their homemade Chicken Ravioli Arriabbiata and you'll be glad you did! The Barbecued Scampi or flavorful Baby Rack of Roasted Lamb also makes a perfect meal for a warm night!
Save room for desert because the Tiramisu is the creamiest you'll ever taste outside of Italy, and sorbets are perfection! Wines are also reasonably priced and their selection of martinis keep the place packed with the "in-crowd" from the Valley! If you are looking for a cozy place where the food is great, everybody knows your name and they're always glad you came, OlivA is it!"
