Oliveto Cafe & Restaurant Review

Respected chef Jonah Rhodehamel is at the helm of this locally renowned eatery, which anchors Market Hall in the Rockridge neighborhood. The first-class dining room upstairs serves straightforward Italian cuisine; the menu changes daily, but might include house-made duck prosciutto, pan-seared swordfish, or spit-roasted leg of lamb. Downstairs, in the less pricey café ($–$$), everything from a morning espresso to pizza to a full-blown Italian meal (at half the upstairs price) can be enjoyed at one of the small tables or at the bar.

    Great Chef

    Chef Curtis DiFede went out of his way to make sure we were happy with our food. He is an excellent chef and made our experience the best meal I've ever eaten. I will return but I'll call to make sure he doesn't have the night off.
