Situated in the lively county town of Oakham is L’Oliveto, an Italian and Mediterranean restaurant on Church Street.

Housed within a long, low building with a white washed exterior, L’Oliveto combines contemporary and rustic styling to create a completely unique venue. Inside, the restaurant the walls, and even the ceilings, are adorned with light wood beams that are reminiscent of small Italian tavernas. The white wash keeps the intimate dining room bright and airy whilst the addition of high-backed leather chairs in black, white and red add an element of luxury and comfort. The open kitchen allows diners to watch their food be prepared by the highly skilled chefs whilst those who are seated by the full length windows are able to watch the world go by.
