Usually very good

I have visited olivo's quite a few times and the food is always good, a couple of times there has been quite a long wait ( even when there are few other customers). The portion sizes are good as is the price, perfect for a romantic meal for two. The wine is way over priced for the quality but... read more

The food was excellent and we couldn't fault the service. The spaghetti gamberi was to die for as were the dough balls stuffed with goats cheese (starter). We eat Italian quite a lot but this was the best we've had in a long time. Definitely recommend it.

On arriving I thought the restaurant looked lovely, nice and open, decorated well. We had a table for 10 people. I chose the Camembert to share, with freshly made breadsticks, and cranberry dip. This was amazing! Just really well done. Then I had the calzone. This surprised me as the flavours were amazing. Normally pizzas are nice but this was... More

I would not return. Waited 45 minutes to be served drinks and over an hour for dinner. (The restaurant wasn't very busy)

Looking for somewhere to eat last Saturday when we came across this restaurant, it was busy but decided to chance it and popped in. The staff were very helpful and friendly and found us a table near the large open doors so a nice cool breeze on a hot evening was very welcome. Good but small selection of dishes, all... More

The previous reviews are quite correct, the service is polite but very very slow. It seems any waiter, of which there are numerous, can serve any table which means in reality, no one serves any table. We waited an interminable age between courses and even longer to try to find someone to pay. Food was good! Which made the whole... More

I love Italian food especilly when cooked and served well and Olivo's certainly does that. A place to relax, take your time and watch the world go by.
