Olivia – authentic Italian food in Nha Trang, Vietnam

The streets of Nha Trang are lined with restaurants offering local Vietnamese and international food. Many restaurants offer a little bit of everything, including the most popular international dishes like pizza or pasta. So, I was delighted to find a restaurant that offers authentic tasting Italian food. Olivia offers very good food with friendly service at reasonable prices – check out my review and photos of Olivia Nha Trang Italian restaurant below!

The Olivia Italian restaurant occupies a small space near the beach and has a few tables outside and more in the air conditioned interior. The tables are rustic, wooden table and provide a nice atmosphere.  The service was very friendly and attentive and I had a table and menu quickly. 

I had a glass of red wine with my meal and it came in a little caraffe, a generous pour and stylishly served.

I ordered a bruschetta and it was delicious. The bread was crunchy and it came loaded with fresh tomatoes. The sauce of oil and vinegar was perfectly done and had just the right mix of spices to it. 

As the main course, I ordered pasta. The small portion of large ravioli was cooked just right, not too soft. The sauce was very tasty, very flavor full, making this another winning dish. 

The combination of appetizer and main course was plenty of food for me, so I skipped the dessert. I took a peek at what my neighbors ordered and the pizza also looked very good.

Finding a pasta bolognese in Asia isn’t that hard, but finding good Italian food with a wide selection of dishes, cooked to the right consistency of the pasta and flavored well is much more difficult. Prices at Olivia are very reasonable, both for food and drink. Olivia Nha Trang gets the food right, making it a good choice if you are craving authentic Italian food in Nha Trang, Vietnam!
