A few months delay from this short restaurant review.
Just came back from my holiday, and it was time to go out with my colleagues for Christmas celebrations. One of my colleagues was promoted around October of last year but he wanted to celebrate with everyone being available… and that was at Christmas time. I guess perfect timing! ^_^
We went to an Italian restaurant called Ristorante Olivelli located in East Dulwich, (which I would call a poshy area of Peckham and Camberwell). It seems this restaurant has a few other branches based in Central London and The East Dulwich branch is currently their fourth restaurant. Guess business is doing fairly well for them. ^_^
My Colleague ordered a few starters. One was a vegetarian option (no picture) and the one below was the meat version). There were lots of bits to get through, but there was only a few of us. >_<" My Italian colleague really loves to order a lot, even though we tell him not to overdo the ordering. LOL.
After 3 lots of starters (3 vegetarian and 3 meaty ones) later, some of my colleagues were already stuffed. I wasn’t because I had only had breakfast and nothing else that day…
Tempted to order something big, but just stuck to a lasagna. Safe option! It was pretty good. Nice and hot as it came out. Very cheesy, which is what I like.
Unfortunately I couldn’t finish the rest… 😦 So stuffed from the starters… Never eat too much at the start because you’ll never finish the main meal. I have to listen to my own words more often. >_<"
Mrs SweetTooth was sitting next to me, and she couldn’t finish her pizza either. >_<" My Italian colleague was supposed to remember to take the remainders to work for her… but never did!! LOL.
I’m afraid I don’t know the total cost… I’m sure they spent more than £100 with the amount of beers they were drinking that night.
My geeky rating: 5/5
– Service was good, they adapted to my colleagues fairly well
– Good food, big portions
– Can’t remember if there were any…
