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

We stopped in for lunch with friends and all four of us ordered pizza. I usually get a chance to check trip advisor prior to eating. Thankfully our experience was a pleasant one unlike some of the other reviews. We all enjoyed our food and found the staff quick and efficient, maybe as there wasn't that many people here at... More

It used to be a very good restaurant but unfortunately this restaurant falls behind average now. I can not recommend it and this is pity as the restaurant has the great location on the main square, which can be overlooked from some tables in a old historical house with a cozy atmosphere. That is where the positives end. The food... More

We made special reservations for their one balcony table that looks out over the town square. I ordered the duck leg and when it arrived it was cold and rubbery. For the balcony alone the place gets high marks. If you can't get the balcony, wait until you can, or go somewhere else.
