Saw this place on TripAdvisor and thought we would give it a shot. These folks are trying their hand at fine dining at affordable prices. I had the meatball squisitio while my wife had the chicken salad. They made my salad to order with romaine...More

Bland and boring, seemingly institutional attempt to serve pasta dishes that could and should taste so much better. Uninspiring menu. Can't even serve wine (no license) to help drown the pitiful tastes presented. Well, just have a beer! (A beer with what should be fine...More

The food was amazing, I could have just ate the calamari and bread with spices and dipping oil. The seafood ravioli were some of the best I have ever had. Ad the cannoli was delish too!!!

Tuesday night is lasagna night at Olive Pit, and so I gave it a try. It was very good, as was the bread. The side salad was nothing special, just iceberg lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and onion. The service was good. I would go back.

My husband and I went here for lunch and the lunch servings were so big we took half of it home and had it for dinner. Warmed up great and was just as good the second time. Bread was delicious too.

Had lunch there. Service was prompt and friendly. The salads were delicious. Get the house dressing. The toasted ravioli reminded me of St Louis.

We ate at The Olive Pit on a Saturday night and had fantastic service! The food was delicious! We were quite surprised with their twist on traditional Italian dishes- and we loved it! We will definitely return when in Paris!

Pleasant but small dining area. Waitress was very attentive. Shrimp was slightly overcooked but hot and flavorful. Parmesan potatoes were excellent. All in all a good meal and would definitely try again next time we are in town.
