Black olive underwent a couple incarnations. From the original owner to a new owner that wasn't able to keep it going. : ( I was friends with the original owner and met and befriended the second. However, the ownership change lost a lot of clientele and now the place is a Japanese eatery. I hear it's very good.
It is unfortunate The Black Olive had to go. Robert have driven away much of the clients that Tony have eatablished, and so did the one after him with poor quality of food and services.

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

Intimate dining, close to our house, nice for a date night.
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.
