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.
As always, we really enjoyed our meal here. The food is always fresh and beautifully cooked. The service is excellent too - attentive but without being intrusive. One of my favourite local restaurants and excellent value for money
A wonderful atmosphere and great service from the staff. Food amazing cooked to order and able to request a reduction in amount of chilli used. A great idea to lock away mobile phone and have a 10% reduction in the bill. We will return very soon and will recommend this place to all of my friends.
Loved this quaint little restaurant so much. Managed to get the early menu by pure default and what a fabulous meal it was. Loved their spaghetti olivito on the special. So good! Without a doubt be going again. Spot on guys well done
