The Locavore Next Door: The Oliverio's Dining Experience
By Carrie Robinson on August 12, 2012 from The Locavore Next Door
We started our meal with the Angel Hair Crab Balls. I know the name could be a tad bit misconstrued, but these were actually three balls of crab meat stuffing that are rolled in angel hair pasta and then deep fried. This is a truly unique and tasty appetizer and was definitely a great start to our meal. I think we all agreed that the portion size was perfect for the three of us. My husband even liked it, and he isn’t a huge fan of seafood so that speaks volumes.
After much self-debate, I decided on the Mediterranean dish for my entrée. I realized it had been quite a while since I had enjoyed some scallops, and thought this seafood pasta dish would be perfect. My expectations were not quite met with this dish. It was a bit over salted, and was somewhat heavy on the sauce. When I think of Mediterranean, I imagine something a little lighter that lets the freshness of the seafood really stand out. Though the entrée was good, I found myself wishing that I had ordered the Chicken Picatta instead.
My husband’s friend was very pleased with his visit to Oliverio’s, and was happy that I had swayed the restaurant choice that evening. The atmosphere is pleasant. Our service from Judy was wonderful.
