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.

Consistently great Italian food. I love the Rustic Flat Bread, the Garlic Prawns with the Olive oil and especially the seafood Spaghetti Luigi. It does get very busy at peak hour times at both lunch and dinner, which does hurt the service level. I would suggest you go at 1:30 for lunch and 8:00 for dinner.

Food was great but service let this restaurant down badly. We had the same experience three times previously but kept going back hoping for an improvement. Sadly the same thing happened each time we went there. Could not fault the food, just the service!

Great food, great value for money and great views! What more could you want? I eat here often as it is local and have never been disappointed. Works well for couples and for groups.

The Rustic Olive lives up to all its awards for wonderful Italian food and great service from the efficient and friendly staff. We ordered entree sized pastas each and a Greek salad to share and we could hardly finish the meals. All our meals were cooked to perfection and delivered quite quickly considering the place was absolutely packed on a... More

I went to the Rustic Olive for a birthday lunch on Saturday. We sat in the corner which was slightly squishy but had a good view of the water and a nice breeze. The service was great! I ordered the Barrumundi with potatoes. The fish was juicy and the potatoes crispy and nicely flavoured. I would definitley come back here... More

I have eaten here a number of times, lunches and dinner. The menu and food is good, and a higher standard than much of what Redcliffe has to offer. However, because of this perhaps, it can be hard to get into and we have been seated outside in the dark and cold when we would have preferred light and warmth.... More
