Word to the wise: Get to know the new name of the latest Oliveto chef: Jonah Rhodehamel, a 28-year-old who promises evolution but not revolution with a renewed emphasis on regional Italian traditions at one of Oakland’s most loved restaurants. Recent visits to the upstairs restaurant and downstairs cafe found Oliveto, under his regime so far, squarely committed to the culinary values that have distinguished the 25-year reign of owners Maggie and Bob Klein. Yearly traditions such as the annual tomato and whole hog dinners continue, and the ever-changing menu continues to feature the season’s best ingredients, and constants include salumi, squab and pastas plus grilled, sautéed and rotisseried rabbit, steak, fish and chicken. The downstairs informal café offers similar lunch and dinner menu and adds pizzas from a wood-fired oven. Cafe serves breakfast, lunch and dinner Mon.–Sun.; restaurant serves lunch Mon.–Fri., dinner Mon.–Sun. www.oliveto.com
