Wonderful evening, fantastic food with great friendly service, attentive but not overly. The scallop starter is to die for and my fillet streak in white wine and mushrr sauce made me think I was eating a little bit of heaven. I can't wait to go back and try the pasta. All out food was excellent ...

We had never been and thought we’d be a bit early but no, hardly space to park outside…we thought it must be an “office outing”? No this is what it is like apparently, people come early, after work and things quieten down around 21.00! So book late if you want to be able to talk to each other as the... More

I have been back to Olivo's twice now in recent months and they never fail to deliver. The first time was in late July for my partner's birthday. Friends had phoned ahead and ordered a bottle of champagne to be delivered to the table. The staff made a special evening even more special. The second time was for my birthday... More

After a search on tripadvisor for a restaurant to treat my folks on their wedding anniversary, the ratings led me to L'Olivo. This is my first adventure with this website's ratings. The welcome was unfussy and polite, and the tone and feel of the interior made for a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. The staff were a lovely blend of personality... More

I visited last week for my dads 50th Birthday. What a perfect little place to celebrate a special occasion. The food was of such high quality, the ambience ideal and the staff helpful and attentive. The food was fairly priced for what we ate, and simply delicious! Will definitely be visiting again. Must book!!
