Our story

Our story begins when Guido Oliverii opened Trattoria Oliverii, using family recipes from the Abruzzo region of Italy. He created a comfortable dining atmosphere complete with quality Central Italian cuisine and a full bar in Northbrook, Illinois.

Today, the tradition continues under owners and cousins, Ali Clark and Katie Keefe. Katie was born and raised in Northbrook and has worked at Oliverii's since its opening day in 1991. Over the decades, Katie has become an integral member of the restaurant's team, and enjoys the relationships she has developed with customers. It's not uncommon to hear her referred to as the "Mayor of Northbrook" or "Kate the Great" by guests. It's her deep connections with the community that inspired her to become co-owner of Oliverii's.

A native of New Orleans, Ali has an extensive restaurant background. Having worked in multiple key roles for the famed Brennan restaurant family (at Palace Cafe, Bourbon House, Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse and Tableau), Ali knows the ins and outs of a quality dining experience. She is using this knowledge to enhance the already excellent reputation Oliverii's has for food and service.

Delicious cuisine, in an intimate, relaxed family atmosphere is the Oliverii standard. Date night, Tuesday evening dinner with the family, birthday celebrations, cocktail and an appetizer, quick lunch, take-out; whatever your dining needs may be, Trattoria Oliverii has you covered. The Oliverii restaurant family hopes to see you soon. Buon Appetito!
