Excellent pizza and delicious home made pasta

Excellent Italian food at very reasonable prices. Very good pizzas. The service wasn't as warm and friendly as in other Zambian restaurants but this could be due to the fact that it's a training restaurant. One of the best meals we had during our Zambian holiday.

The pizza was very nice and filling. I think it is linked to a non-profit training college for young people so that is what attracted me to it. I think service is good considering.

Olga's has really grown over the years from not only a restaurant to some kind of BnB. Their food is great and staff also good. I think it's the best Italian food in town plus they share their profits with a youth skills training centre so you leave with a good feeling, not only the one in your stomach

Have been here a few times now and always has left me satisfied. Though the waiting time was indeed on the long side it still very fast compared to the usual Zambian waiting time. Pizza's and pastas are done very well and service and pricing is OK

Food is great and affordable. The place is conveniently located in a quiet and serene environment. You wouldn't ask for more.

My brother and I LOVE Totino's pizza. Olga's pizza reminded us of Totino's. That might sound like an insult to some, but it shouldn't. Excellent thin crust pizza.

We had a week in Livingstone and ate here three times. Twice it was superb; first class pizza, lasagne and chicken, but other time it was very average; poor service, soggy pizza and tasteless sauce for the chicken dish. Service was a bit slow each time but wasn't a big issue as very convivial atmosphere.

Yes it is a bit of Europe in the middle of Africa but sometimes you want to feel at home on a long journey. Food is good, Café is enjoyable, drinks are cold and the internet is working most of the times. Most of the visitors have European, American or South African background and if you are interested in local... More

Service was a little slow, but the food was worth the wait. We had several different pizzas and the salads are ginormous!
