Went to Olvios tonight and had an very nice time. I had slow cooked pork which was good but needed the extra carbohydrates we purchased with the potatoes. My wife had the salmon and bacon salad. The staff were professional without being OTT. The interior is nice and interesting and has different levels and seating arrangements. It's well worth a... More

Olivo is a comfortable bar/restaurant near the top of Union Street. There is plenty of room and comfortable seating. We were given a table for two by the window. Lunch menu is quite extensive - we went for wholemeal sandwiches, which came on a board with fried potato pieces and a bowl of red cabbage. The bread was good and... More

Went to Olvios as it was pouring with rain and we were at the top of Union Street! 7 in our party and an enjoyable evening was had. The waiter was proffessional yet friendly and the service was good. We all enjoyed our choices, I had the Taglitelle Haddock which was delicious. Will definetly eat there again-they seem family friendly... More

The food at Olvios is good with a mixed menu ( albeit mainly Italian) and reasonable wine list. Starters of Koftas and calamari were good although not big portions. The seafood marinara is good with too large shrimp to eat and large mussels mixed in the tomato sauce. The penne fungi was earthy and full of flavour. Service was good... More

This is my first visit to the Isle of Wight, I was strolling around Ryde,and it was the most appealing restaurant to the eye. The staff were very busy,welcoming,friendly and polite.We had cocktails which were very good,but pricey, food was served in a reasonable time it was well presented and delicious. Great atmosphere.Great Night out.

I have heard great things from people about Olivios over the years but this was my first visit. Maybe my expectations were too high but I thought it was over priced, service was not great and the quality of the food is mediocre (at best). I'd get better value, better food and better service at a Strada, Zizzi or Pizza... More

good food - but our evening was totally spoilt by appallingly slow and inefficient service. we were a mix of six friends - local and not so local. Our poor friend, who did not order a starter because she fancied a pudding, had to wait almost two hours before she got anything to eat!!! There is no excuse for this... More
