We went to Fat Olive on Friday with friends. Staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Menu is varied and very good value for money. The food was served quickly and everything was good. No complaints at all, Look forward to going back soon.

I have been here a couple of times over the past 2 years for leaving do's and birthday's. Every time I have been here the staff have been friendly and quick with service. Last night there were 8 of us which was not a problem for them at all. They seem to have lots of large parties celebrating birthdays etc.... More

It's a while(for various reasons) since we visited here, but if I want ''Italian'' in Wigan this is the place. It was recommended to me by a member of staff from the Brockett Arms(another fine hostelry), and I'm glad it was. Would certainly go again.

6.30 on a sunday evening very busy we were made very welcome five minutes later straight to our table and menus delivered. We chose sea bass starters followed risotto main and steak no wait and delicious. We have paid a lot more and been disappointed but not here well worth a try.

Wish they would serve veg with the steaks though aswell that... More
