We visited the Olivetta mid-week so wasn't surprised that it was not very busy, but there were a couple of parties who had obviously gone for the 'Early bird' menus on offer (2 or 3 course). For starters we chose a Mediterranean salad and Hummus to share. Both dishes were well presented on the plate, excellent and really tasty. For mains we had chicken kebab and a mixed kebab. You had a choice of kebabs for the mixed dish. Again the food was excellent and in abundance. A nice touch is that you can take home what you can't eat. We rarely go for the sweet menu but we had enjoyed the rest of the meal so much we decided to sample the appetizing looking desserts on offer. We chose Tiramisu and a Turkish honey cake (like Baklava). The Baklava was really tasty and served with ice cream. My wife thought the Tiramisu was too creamy and a little bland. We had a reasonably priced bottle of wine to accompany our meal. All staff were friendly and attentive, allowing us as much time as we needed to make our meal choices. The bill was reasonable for what we had and we shall certainly keep the Olivetta on our list of favourites.

First time visit last week, but the food was some of the best cooked ever, it's not the biggest in Halifax, but it's big in taste and choice. will return next time in Halifax.

We went to the Olivetta as a spur of the moment thing. We ordered the sharing platter and a burger each - little did we know how big the sharing platter was (enough for 3 people as a starter!) so when the burger came we were already full and neither of us could manage more than half! The food was good and the atmosphere was pleasant and the staff were very friendly and not overbearing.
Will definitely go again but remember to order less or take a third person to share it with!

Don't be put off by the outside as the food, friendly staff and customer service make this place a gem of a find. Excellent value for money , hot spicy food and menu adaptations to suit. Ideal for a pre or post cinema trip as 5 minutes from the new Vue and bar complex.
