With the sun shining you may find it hard to get a table outside, such is the popularity with locals to check out the sights, or rather the other people walking by... If you do, you will be rewarded with great food and service, I also ate inside one time here, getting the daily menu choice for added value.

Olivo Pizza is one of the best places on Banska Bystrica square to grab a quick tasty lunch during the week. They have always 6 different kinds of dishes on offer usually consisting of pizza, salad, chicken, pasta and one traditional slovak meal. I highly recommend to visit in summer when you can actually sit on the outside porch.

Frankly, I only chose this place because it was the number 1 from pizza places in Banska Bystrica, bonus was that it was like 20 metres away from my location at that moment. When I entered the restaurant, I was pretty impressed, the interior is very well made. But when we took our seats, we had to wait like 15... More

Restaurant seemed at first sight very well, but I was disappointed. "Slovak espresso", they did not have a lot of things from the menu and in the end, the food was average. I did not like the staff either.

Came for lunch with my friends. The restaurant is huge but furnished in a nice italian style. Very good choice of pizzas and the daily lunch menu was a good value too. I appreciate the menu was also written in English as that was a bit of a problem while travelling through Slovakia. I had spinach tagliatelle which was just... More

A good italian restaurant in Banska Bystrica, on the main square of the old city. The view is nice and the terrasse is well-located. The staff is efficient and speak honorably English. There is a large choice of pizzas, pastas... The quantities are big and the food is tasty. The price are good for such quality.

Nice place to have lunch or dinner. Good selection at the menu. Outdoor seating. Serving staff helpful and friendly. The restaurant is placed in historical building in square. Inside there serve the menu on two floors. Probably the best Tiramisu in Banska Bystrica. Nice selection of deserts, the best tomato soup in Banska Bystrica. They need to improve serving guests...

Even though I live in Banska Bystrica, I always avoided Olivo because of a "high prices" reputation. The opposite is the true. I first tried it a couple of months ago and I was taken by the space, size, decor, and above all, friendly and helpful service that is still "not-so-common" in that part of the world. Outside seating overlooking... More
