Ristorante Olivetti Restaurant Review

: It's stuck in a small strip center, but the neighborhood-style menu and pleasant setting coax you to stop by nonetheless. Attractive prices are a definite bonus, too. We like the idea that you can create your own pasta and top it with, say, a seafood sauce and vegetables of your choice. You can create your own salad or pizza as well using the same approach. Beyond that, the chicken Marsala is quite good; ditto for the calamari jullanova. Unfortunately, there’s not much in the way of desserts to recommend, but cannoli is your best bet.
