Description: A cosy Italian restaurant with an excellent cuisine. It can be found at Pils laukums 4, near a park and opposite to the Riga Castle. This is the quieter part of the Old Town, a great place to hide from the crowd while still in the distance of a two minute slow walk from the Doma Square. The restaurant has a vast terrace with a view on a park and the Riga Castle during the summer. The restaurant has references to the film based on "The Godfather", the famous novel of Mario Puzo. The name of the restaurant is coming from the film too. The restaurant is divided into three relatively separate parts, each of them decorated in a different style. There is a Venice room with a six-seat table, a hall designed according to Sicilian tradition, and Sala Verde with a bar and checked table clothes. The warmth of interior painting together with antique breathing of a house in the Old Town of Riga creates a veritably homey atmosphere filling you up with agreeable peace and anticipation of a meal. And you will not be disappointed for the time spent in anticipation. The food is indeed that of the highest quality, with refined and balanced taste. Moreover, the prices are very reasonable. They have a thoroughly thought-out menu - classic, yet interesting, a menu where everyone, be it a vegetarian or a taste aesthete, can find his or her favourite dish. Seafood soups, pastas made at the restaurant, pizzas, brusquettas, traditional Italian snacks, meat and fish dishes are available there. And the dessert, of course, is an Italian classics - Tiramisu, Panna Cotta and other delights depending on the season. While you are waiting for your ordered meal, a waiter serves freshly baked bread with olives in a small basket. Italian restaurant "Olive Oil Trading Co." is one of the best combinations of location, interior, cuisine, and price that you will find in Riga. It can be most conveniently reached on foot.

We had a very nice dinner here the first evening in town. Very good quality on everything, food, wines and service. I would any day visit this restaurant again.

A small Italian restaurant with lovely ambience and exquisite food. It us always nice and quiet. It is in the heart of the old town, yet far from the tourist noise.
