Delicious Italian

Great Italian restaurant in a nice setting with friendly staff and good food. Reasonably priced and a wide range of options. Definitely recommend a visit and it is easy to get to as it's just off the main road.

After a busy day touring it is great to be able to pop in and collect take away pizza from this place. It is clean, the staff friendly and the pizza delicious. The added bonus of supporting local people by purchasing locally made crafts is also great.

We've been to Livingstone 3 times, and each time we make sure to have at least one dinner at Olga's. The service is professional and courteous, and the food is just wonderful. We recommend splitting one of the huge salads as an appetizer - enough for at least 2 people!

Good pizza but not exceptional. The pizza was a bit like pizza express and the waiters were not that friendly. Also, the service isn't as quick as some might like. If in Livingstone go to Da canton.

Wanted to visit this restaurant based upon Fodor's review. Love the mission of the restaurant. Very disappointed with the food. It was homemade pasta noodles with very little Italian seasoning. Was very disappointed.

We came here after seeing all the good reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. The food is reasonably priced with good sized portions. The next time we are in Livingstone will definitely come again.

Great little italian, very popular so make sure you book a table. They do fantastic pizzas and pastas. Prices are very good and you can even take your own wine with corkage at £2 per bottle, The only criticism is the steaks are overlooked and served Luke warm

We stopped by on the way back to Lusaka and were pleasantly surprised by the good authentic Italian food (I am Italian myself). Definitely a good choice.

After a long journey, to come across this restaurant was the first oasis of the trip through Zambia. Amazing pizzas and incredible spaghetti amatriciana! As an Italian, I found a "corner" of my home. Thanks to the staff too, kind and clean. Yummi!

The pizza here was so delicious, and it was really inexpensive, especially in Livingstone (where everything is marked up for all us tourists).
