With a nod to his roots as a pizza maker, Michael is bringing scratch-made Italian style pizzas, breads, strombolis, and calzones to the menu, but these items take second place to Chef Alcaraz's rustic Italian inspired fare of pastas, fresh fish/shrimp/mussels, traditional Pork inspired Osso Bucco, Salimbocca a la Romana, Linguini Pescatore, homemade meatballs, organic & fresh salads, homemade dressings and sauces, as well as daily and weekly specials. The daily scratch made tomato bisque is sure to keep one warm, as is the homemade ciabatta bread that's served complimentary to each table. Oliviana is located at 399 Highland Ave. in Surrey Center. We are open 7 days a week, for lunch and dinner, and serve a wonderful brunch every Sunday from 12pm until 3pm. Part of our dinning room is separated so it allows us the perfect opportunity to host large parties or special events. The restaurant boasts a copper roof and windows that face Highland Ave, as well as out door dinning(so well behaved pets are welcome). It is the ideal place for friends to come together, hang out and enjoy a chef inspired menu, unique beverage offerings, and personalized hospitality. We offer a full bar with an ever growing list of delicious, yet affordable wines from all parts of the world.
