Although this combination pub and restaurant serves the full contingent of Mediterranean cuisine, it's best for drinks and Spanish-style tapas (appetizers). The century-old redbrick house with stained-glass windows draws everybody from tie-clad business executives to university students. Groups liven up the large front room—the quieter, smaller back rooms maintain a bit more romance. There are umbrella-covered tables on the sidewalk to enjoy warm evenings. Olio is extremely proud that it offers a copy of its menu in Braille.
