Oliver’s Little Italy to open in popular restaurant spot on South Oliver

UPDATED — Another new restaurant is coming to 1930 S. Oliver.

The appropriately named Oliver’s Little Italy will open in the next week or so for an Italian lunch buffet.

“It’s in a good spot for a lunch buffet,” says Scott Cosentino, who is opening the business with Dyan Gordon.

The 7,000-square-foot space has been home to a number of restaurants in recent years, including Ben Villar’s Mexican Restaurant, Crossroads Bistro and Steakhouse, Spears and Angelo’s.

Cosentino used to run Crossroads, in fact.

He says Oliver’s Little Italy eventually will be open for dinner in addition to the lunch buffet.
