More about L'Olivetto, Liverpool

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.
