I have been visiting Olivo for many years and get great food every time. My recent visit was for lunch and I ordered the set menu. The portions are good for a £9.95 set menu and the pizzas are amazing.

My wife and I had lunch here a few weeks ago. I'm of Italian descent and often don't enjoy Italian restaurants in the UK as too often the food is bland and a poor immitation of food back in Italy. I can not say this about the food at Olivo on this visit - I was very pleased indeed with... More

I took my wife and a couple of friends for dinner on Saturday. I've been here several times for lunch and always loved the food and service. We shared starters, and the highlights were the calamari, the mussels and the mixed antipasti. The mains were great too, and we finished off with some great desserts. The owner and head waiter...

We really enjoyed our first visit to this restaurant in the centre of Guildford. The lunch deal seems excellent value. The fish dishes are particularly good and wine is a reasonable price. We will be visiting Guildford more often for shopping now that we have discovered Olivo. The tastecard deal is also good value but service charge a bit steep... More

I have been going to the Olivo in Guildford for many years and have never had a bad meal. Having lived in Rome for six years when I was young, eating at this restaurant is something of a nostalgia trip and an opportunity to speak Italian again. The service is excellent and they do a wonderful duck and cherry sauce,... More

Went with my girlfriend and another couple on the 1st of November. Staff are happy and helpful, food was delicious though little bit pricey for the portions in my opinion. There is a good variety to choose from even for vegetarians (my girlfriend). All in all a worthwhile place to dine.

It was the first time I had been to this restaurant, I had read all the good reviews and the extensive menu has something for everyone! The atmosphere was very nice and we were not rushed at all which is very rare nowadays, a good sign was that there looked to be a lot of locals at the restaurant which... More

Very friendly welcome and good service. My husband enjoyed his pasta dish but my Vegetarian Pizza was truly unappetising! I would advise against ordering a pizza from this Italian restaurant.
