Mossley Hill on the south side of Liverpool is increasingly becoming a dining destination on Merseyside, with plenty of restaurants to visit and easy access via the Mossley Hill railway station. Rose Lane is the centrepiece of this, and at L’Olivetto they’re flying the flag for Italian cuisine in this area. Their emphasis on traditional cooking, small plates and good wines marks them out as a superb place to eat, so book a table now.
Rose Lane, in the south Liverpool suburb of Mossley Hill, is one of the finest places in the city to dine. Restaurants and bars abound, and for those who wish to experience an authentic slice of Italian cooking, L’Olivetto is the place to be. Their specialities are cicchetti, small plates that are analogous to the Spanish tapas, and offer diners the chance to share food across a large group.
The cicchetti are a standout feature at Rose Lane’s L’Olivetto, and the mains menu is also packed with the favourites that one would expect to see at any self-respecting Italian restaurant. Their pizza selection is extensive, and their veal choices are as good as any in Liverpool. Our recommendation is the osso buco, served with butternut squash risotto, and vitello Milano, a breaded escalope, pan-fried and accompanied by spaghetti. With their location close to Mossley Hill, they are easily reached from Liverpool city centre, and many Scouse foodies are making the trip, so book a table now and be sure of getting yourself a table.
Excellent service and excellent food (as usual) very very friendly atmosphere. Fillet steak was perfect, medium rare, and so tender. We have never been disappointed, and have now booked for a family Christmas dinner there. Shawna and her team really do work their magic.
Amazing restaurant, beautiful food, great atmosphere lovely lovely staff best Italian in liverpool
I went to L'Olivetto with my husband & son for the first time yesterday & we all really enjoyed our meal. Between us we shared the starter of garlic bread with mozzarella cheese that was freshly baked & piping hot followed by lasagne or carbonara with chicken, side salad & homemade chunky chips. The staff were very friendly & everything was delicious,we will definitely be returning soon. Thank you for a lovely evening
