L’Ulivo(The Olive)

[Photos to come soon!]

This week has been a hellish week, to say the very least. And for both of us too. So when I found out mid-week that a neighbour from Elgin was going to be passing through London with a few friends on her journey home, I got excited. Like, REALLY excited. I love it when people we know are in London and we can get together, even if only for a short while. And it’s even better when it’s someone you haven’t seen in a long time.

We made reservations at L’ulivo near Leicester Square, which was a perfect middle ground for everyone. We headed off from work and made our way there, getting the table and waiting for them to arrive. 45 minutes later, we finally connected and realised…we went to the two different restaurant locations. And we were definitely in the wrong on this one. They went to the right one, which thankfully was under a 10 minute walk, so we immediately headed over there.

The restaurant is located just off the main square, surrounded by several others. It’s in the perfect location for pre-theatre dinners, and with outdoors seating great for people-watching. They had already started on appetisers and wine, and since we had spent some time at the other location, we had already eyed through the menu and picked out what we wanted.

The food was wonderful, but the company was even better! The smiles and laughter made the night and t was hard to believe how late it was when we finally departed. Time really does fly when you’re having fun! Thank you again to the three lovely ladies who treated us to a great dinner and even better conversation to end such a long week.
