Closed down for about a year. No idea if it will ever reopen. Thanks! This needs to be removed from the files.

So Ollivanders has been closed now for several months now, with a sign still on the door that reads 'closed indefinitely', the windows are NOT papered or covered, the menus are still on the tables...what is going on I ask? Will we ever be filled in or will the restaurant remain there as a tease to all of us mourning... More

What a shame! Ollivanders makes the best Pizza within 100 miles! Seriously! REAL cheese, and fresh ingredients! When we were on holidays Aug 2013, we were looking forward to getting a Pizza to go and having it on the beach while watching the glorious sunset that you get in Qualicum! And on the door: "Effective Immediately we are closed indefinitely.... More

We were in the mood for pizza last night and decided to check out this place and the sign on the door said "closed down indefinitely. Too bad as we couldn't find any place else close by that was opened serving pizza.

We were looking for somewhere for a late lunch and the owner of the shoe store next door recommended the Ollivanders. A good choice. We sat on the deck and enjoyed the afternoon sun. Inside was looking sad and was too warm. The waitress made us welcome. We had the deep pan veggie pizza and our daughter had the pasta.... More

I love the pizzas here, worn out kind of inside, seating the the greatest. Outside courtyard is nice in warmer weather. I have been to Ollivanders more than i can count on one hand and it is still a favourite for pizza. Not sure on the rest of the menu.Service can be slow if busy, but normally pretty good.

Although the setting is not elaborate and older, the pizza is wonderful. Lots of toppings and you can have your choice of crust (thin, regular and deep dish). Recommend the deep dish pizza. Very tasty and filling. Excellent homemade crusts. Friendly staff but they are busy and limited workers in busy times. Would be an excellent choice for takeout/delivery.

Pretty good food but the strong odor of mildew/must from the old building overpowers the cooking smells

I have always loved their pizza because they dont skimp on the toppings. I grew up in qualicum and enjoyed it more when it was called " the sawmill". I find it dark, cold and there are not enough staff most of the time. I rarely go now that i live in parksville, but when in qualicum i have to... More

We order Pizza from Ollivanders and it is one of the best in the area. During the winter they have a special half price off the second pizza with a coupon you get in the local paper. Great Pizza when you don't want to cook.
