L'Olivio Restaurant is convenient to the down town action with ample parking in back. Very intimate and romantic with exceptional service, and the food is delicious. A good mix of wines to go with the tasty & fresh food. Sal is the owner and he has extensive knowledge of food preparation and service. I love the beautiful white linens that... More

We visited L'Olivo during our anniversary stay in Palm Springs and were amazed by its authentic Italien flavors! The Ravioli come freshly prepared and to your order in a rich and tasty sauce, salmon is grilled to perfection and the dessert menu offers a wide range of italian sweets you should not miss! The staff was very friendly and always... More

Every time I come to Palm Springs I try to find a new place to eat. Today it was L'Olivio and boy am I glad I did. This is a quaint little Italian bistro right on the main strip of Palm Springs. There is indoor and outdoor dining. The food is all fresh and homemade including the desserts. We tried... More

I tried a new place a week ago and (surprise) the food was delicious. I like to try the shrimp scampi, when trying a new rest- aurant. I figure if they can make this dish to please my pallet, the rest of menu should be good. I had a small wedge salad which was tasty followed by my scampi which... More

This food was awful. Chicken Parmesan came out with asparagus and mashed potatoes. Not "Italian" food at all. There is also a large red and glowing Open sign in the front that blinds patrons. This should've been a big indicator.

My first time here and it was great, I had the Pollo Al Gorgonzola and it arrived hot and it was perfect. The owner and staff were attentive, cost reasonable and I will go back.
