Caffe Oliva is a respectable outdoor restaurant on Ohio St. Beach. It’s kind of like ordering food at a hotel pool, with options like calamari, coconut shrimp, and pita and hummus. Are you going to call all your friends after eating here to tell them about the food? Probably not, but it gets the job done when you don’t feel like moving farther from the sand than absolutely necessary.
