Inspired by a love of design, food, Italy and our hometown Amman, Oliva was established in 2012 on a quiet street corner in the neighbourhood of Weibdeh, Amman.
Nowadays, tiled walls and simple wooden furnishings are paired with an abundance of hanging planter boxes overflowing with greenery. Warm, pendant lights create a casual and cosy ambience where family and friends gather, feel at home and relax.
The bustling open kitchen, with a clay pizza oven at its heart is engaging and central to the Oliva experience.
As guests order, they watch dough being tossed and pastas and salads being crafted by hand. This closeness connects them with the food and creates an important sense of community and communal dining.
