Work Culture at Oliveto Cafe & Restaurant
Why Work With Us?
Oliveto is a landmark restaurant in the heart of the Rockridge district of Oakland. We have a deep connection to our purveyors, only offering the freshest available product. We value individuality and support our staff in all their endeavors.
Exceptional ingredients from farmers we know and trust: the point of departure for all our food. Carrying that tradition forward, Chef Brian Griffith's menus coalesce classic Italian cooking with intelligent innovation.
We use whole animals, from pig to beef, breaking down and curing the meats ourselves. Best-of-season vegetables, wood-fired meats, and homemade pastas are the basis of Jonah’s reasoned approach to what is succulent and modern. Red wines from Piedmont, grass-fed beef from Mendocino — we age them both ourselves. Annual Special Dinners — Truffles, Tomatoes, Whole Hog, Oceanic — feature seasonal harvests at their peak. Elegant, rustic, refined, honest, delicious food, in a fine-dining atmosphere without pretense.
