The owner is very friendly. He walks around the tables making himself known to all his customers, asking if everything is up to standard. Always very booked out. So you will need to book. You will not be disappointed. Meals are wonderful and more than enough. Great value for your $$

Had lunch at the Rustic Olive on Father's Day. The experience was GREAT. The food was marvellous and could easily say the best Italian food I have had in ages. Our party of four loved it. Well done

You can't go wrong at the Rustic Olive. Their meals are good, their staff are friendly - however it's always extremely packed and noisy. Pretty understandable considering how delicious their meals are though

This place has two servivce times, a 5pm to 7pm and a 7pm to 9pm. I wouldnt rate this place on its service or welcome as from the moment you arrive you are treated more like a hinderence than a customer. As soon as we sat down, every single member of our party 9 had either a dirty glass or... More

Had lunch at this fine restaurant. We had Risotto and a Underbelly Gourmet Pizza. They were well presented and extremely tasty.. Service was very friendly and fast. Spoke to the Manager and told him about our pleasant experience. Overall this meal hit the jackpot. Definitely recommend.

we had lunch there on Tuesday 2 Sept, ordered 350g Angus steak med/rare, & Veal Scaloppini Cognac, & Salad. The steak was very thin and over cooked, advised the waitress and we had asked for med/rare. When the next steak was served it was even worse than the first. The steak in our opinion had been steamed/ pumped and it... More

Always awesome food but soo busy and overcrowded can make it really noisy and uncomfortable. Have been there a few times and great it so popular but maybe limit seating so can at least hear the person sitting across from you.

OMG so so Yum , so so much , now I can't fit in dessert. Oh, other teeny complaint, which could have been a positive, is that is BYO ONLY. When people book, might be a good idea to tell this in case not aware. Didn't matter. Bottle-o sorted. All happy. Just would have been cheaper if pre-prepared.

Never really been a huge fan of Italian if going out for dinner but the a Rustic Olive has converted me! Now eaten there a few times and the food has been fantastic every time. No bland pastas....very, very tasty! Always busy ( defiantly book!) so great atmosphere and the owner is always making sure everyone is happy.
