OLIO Groton Reviews
Dec 21, 2007
The location is extremely convenient located directly off of interstate 95.
as soon as you enter the restaurant, the bar is right in front. the interior is black and cream. the furniture is black. the walls are white. it is has an intimate setting. light lighting with votive candles on each table.
what bothers me was the christmas music in the background. they should have instrumental music or none.
our waiteress was pleasant and helpful. the bread they served was soft and buttery. it was served with an oil and shaved parmigiana.
my bf and i shared a Crab Rangoon Spring Rolls over Grilled Pineapple w/ Fiery Mango Sauce.
i ordered the Grilled Pork Tenderloin w/Apple Balsamic Sauce over Blue Cheese Bacon, but with NO BACON. this was very good. i loved the flavor of the blue cheese with the pork.
my bf ordered the Veal Francaise with Spinach, Roasted Tomatoes & White Wine Lemon Garlic Sauce. he said the lemon over powered the garlic.
for dessert, i ordered the chocolate molten lava cake with vanilla cake and my by ordered, a chocolate cheesecake with caramel sauce.
overall, i would like to go back and try their Grilled Portabella Mushroom w/Scallops & Gorgonzola Cheese and Open Face Ravioli w/Lobster, Shrimp, Scallops, & Lobster Chive Sauce.
