Pasta Gallore

Don't get a large portion unless you're sharing because the serves are massive. Plenty of takers here, the service is fast and friendly and the pricing very reasonable. Not 5* but it doesn't pretend to be. Good for families

My husband and I use to be regulars here. .. After the last 3 times we have ordered take out it has taken an extra 30mins in waiting time! 1-1.5 hours for a take out is ridiculous, they could At least call to advise. When we took our pasta and veal home it was terrible, a frozen meal from Coles... More

I arrived, with my wife, for an unplanned meal on a Tuesday evening. The Rustic Olive was the busiest place along the Redcliffe Parade but they easily found a table for two without having made a booking. The menu is extensive, so much to choose from. The service was fast and efficient and we were well looked after. Having pondered... More

Met with friends to celebrate a birthday. Amazing menu that should find something to suit any one. This was my first visit and I would love to come again. I chose Fettuccine Ravello which had luxurious thick pasta strips in a light cheesey sauce. Chicken prawn chorizo capsicum and bacon. Omg mouth watering on sight. I ordered large and that... More

This place is s gem. The food is great modern Australian, great and prompt service. You can either sit inside or outside on the covered and protected footpath. BYO and good coffee and cake. I have been here for both for lunch and dinner. It has a relaxed atmosphere with high standards of meals.

Loved the food not so fussed on being packed in so close to other people that it was hard to pull your chair out but that may have been because it was a Saturday night.

We started with a Rustic flat bread which was delicious. I was looking forward to eating a traditional (or something similar) saltimbocca in an Italian restaurant and was disappointed to receive a dish which was mostly tomato sauce, completely overpowering the delicate flavour of the veal. If there was sage and proscuitto in the dish, I couldn't find it. I... More

If you like Italian cuisine, you will not be disappointed making a trip to this great little restaurant. Take your own favourite bottle of wine.

We dined on a busy Friday night and were delighted by the food and service. Extensive menu gave us so many choices. We will return definitely. But next time in the day to enjoy the views.

Thought we'd try somewhere different for a family Sunday dinner and discovered a gem. Found it hard to decide from the many good choices on the menu. The warm beef salad was absolutely delicious, 2 teenage boys and hubby loved their meals and the attention to detail by the staff was fantastic. Lovely decor and beautiful view. Will go again...
