Nice restaurant in Middleton, nice decor, service is really friendly. There is no bar but they do offer wine and beer. They accommodated a group of 8. The food is more Italian than Mediterranean but still the food is good. My Gustav and I had...More

This restaurant was highly recommended by friends. It is a lovely restaurant. Our group of four all agreed we would love some herbs mixed with the plain olive oil served with the bread. Even just pepper and Parmesan. Even before I tried my meal one...More

Stopped by on a recent visit to the Madison area and was pleasantly surprised to stumble onto Olivas. The menu choices were expansive, the quality of food superb, and the portions generous. The restaurant has a very pleasant ambiance and attractive interior, but you can...More
