The time has come for Oliveto to step forward--
Vaccinations are now mandated for all upstairs diners and staff.
AND...some special dinners that are so so important (and wonderful).
We'll describe some menu items.
 
Reserve on-line or call 510-547-5356
The Dinners
Thursday through Saturday
August 26-28


The very best food from some of our superlative Real Organic farmers will be the ingredients for a sublime menu from Oliveto Chef Peter Jackson.  (If you haven't yet had his food, it's a treat.)
 
Along with our current Upstairs Dining Menu will be these special a la carte items:
Muscat grape gazpacho with pine nut-rosemary crackers, pickled torpedo onions, and borage

Poblano chile pappardelle with smoked tomato ragu--River Dog Farm stewing hen ragu, epazote, and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Spit-roasted Full Belly Farm lamb sides

Wheat salad with chicories, mint, and fennel.  Vintage Wine tomatoes with Oliveto herbed ricotta and old balsamico.  Bintji potato fries.  Succotash.

Halogen melon sorbetto


This is a fundraiser for the Real Organic Project.  Real Organic Project certification is offered at no cost to the farmer; the organization is funded by supporters who care.  
Menus for all three nights will be our usual prices; you'll have the opportunity to add something extra for ROP.

But not to the USDA

You may be surprised to learn that some "Certified Organic" food may no longer be what you'd expect.

Vax Mandate

Beginning this Thursday, we'll be asking for your vaccination cards or digital Smart Health Cards for upstairs indoor dining.  We've been hoping Alameda Health Department would mandate this so we didn't have to, but we thought we needed to move ahead.  As usual, the dining room is spacious and airy, with windows open. Staff will be masked, and guests not yet seated and moving about the dining room should be masked as well.
 
The pioneering farmers of the organic movement came together to protect their life's work.  A grassroots movement of farmers, eaters, scientists, authors, journalists, educators, chefs, and environmental activists is quickly building around them.

Keeping It Together
The alternative food system of northern California is world renowned. It was built by all of us—organic farmers, sustainable suppliers, dedicated restaurant professionals, and conscientious consumers—over the past 40+ years.  It’s built on integrity, a high level of information, transparency, ingenuity, hard work, and very good taste buds.  It’s invaluable, and needs protecting.
