Description: Join us in Olio for an exciting journey around one of the world's most diverse and bountiful regions. Here at Olio we believe the key to the great cuisine of the Mediterranean lies in its simplicity, we use this philosophy as an inspiration for all our dishes: seasonal, local ingredients prepared in a style that will bring out their natural flavours. Organic produce and meats, as well as fish from sustainable fisheries and environmentally sound aquaculture farms, have been chosen to complement this philosophy. So let us interpret for you the foods of Italy, Spain, Greece and Morocco.

Went here on Toronto's Summerlicious. The food was great, the raw oysters were very tasty, and the desserts were really good. Would definitely go back!

I had a large,tasty arugula salad with orange segments and almonds, followed by a tasty risotto with 5 lovely big shrimp on top. The meal was very hot. Dessert was a tiramisu which was delicious. Service was very good for a group of five. A glass of chardonnay was $8.00.

I dined here on a Wednesday night layover in Toronto. I enjoyed their delicious spaghetti after starting with soup and Olio's salad. Had a delightful glass of Australian Shiraz to accompany. One dines in a nice, open, "sociable" environment, as opposed to "intimate". The food was impeccable, the service very attentive, the prices reasonable. I may suggest that you don't... More

Last week I decided to try out Olio Bar for a change. I enjoyed a couple of their "Starters" and a beer while watching the hockey game. Marco was very friendly, attentive and the "Starters" were delicious.

I am always impressed with the food, its not your average hotel menu. There is a lot of thought put into the daily specials.

This restaurant was a delightful surprise, as it's located in an hotel (Sheraton Toronto Airport). The service was very good and the atmosphere pleasant. Reasonable wine list not exhorbitantly priced. Restaurant has a nice layout, with some alcoves that afford privacy. Wait staff were attentive but not intrusive.

When looking for a pleasant location to dine with some business partners, I wanted to find something that wasn't the typical "steak house" that now dominates the themes for the airport area.
