Great food, service is good but because it's so popular there might be a bit of a wait. This has to be the best Italian restaurant that I have patronised. Portions are huge! Next time I will be ordering the small size. Took a doggie bag home with me and there was still more than enough for dinner! Extremely good... More

Last evening my partner & I & five other family members dined at the Rustic Olive. I can not say a bad word about anything. The wait service was fantastic. The food was fantastic. A big 10 out of 10 to all the crew. Well done & we will be back if we can get a booking that is 😀

the staff were rushed, the food was of poor quality. A few of us didn't like our meals. LL and B was out of a soft drink bottle, not impressed.

My daughters and I go to the Rustic Olive about once a month. The food is always perfect, the service is without fault, and the atmosphere Sam (owner) has created amongst the staff makes every experience fantastic. Be sure to book, especially on the weekend as it is very popular. Be aware that there are two sitting times on the... More

Have bought takeaway a couple of times here now and have to say very disappointed. The meat is never cut up properly just big chunks and way to much pasta. The tomatoes were big chunks also not cherry tomatoes as suggested on the menu. Why make the takeaway food crap when the eat in food is always quite good?

Average if anything. Meal came out with metal through it from the dishwasher, had to get it swapped. $7 for some undercooked chips with a minute amount of aioli. Pizza was dry, and I'd assume the 'pizza bread' would of come with mozzarella on top, but it was just bread and chilli oil. Kinda basic. No mention of the $2... More

This restaurant is extremely popular so booking is essential. It is a reasonably priced Italian themed restaurant. Our waitress, Kelsey, was very helpful and attentive. Nice atmosphere. We were a family group of mixed ages, the pasta dishes and pizzas were a favourite amongst the younger members of our group.

My husband Michael and I had our wedding reception at The Rustic Olive on 6 January. We, along with our guests were impressed with the range and quality of food as well as the level of service on the day. We also had a fabulous profiteroles wedding cake made especially made for us. Many thanks to Sam, Anthony and all... More
