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 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.

We always eat here once every year during the IOW festival. This year we both had risotto which was absolutely delicious and very generous in portion sizes, the restaurant was busy when we visited however the staff are well organised and are used to coping with a lot of people. The location is great just towards the top of a... More

Took parents but the service was extremely slow, advised due to it being before holiday season. Food was really good

Quite possibly my favourite restaurant in Ryde. I'm a big fan of everything Italian, and the food here is superb. The inside of the building used to be an old pearl 'factory', so it has a high ceiling, with lots of wooden beams and windows. The staff have always been friendly and helpful, and the food is 5 star. Highly... More

The food here is good but the staff need sorting out. On arrival We had to wait for 10 mins before anyone came to talk to us - as did all the next visitors. We were given menus but then asked 5 times if we could order before someone bothered to come over. There are clearly not enough staff and... More

Lovely food and service. We had the tagliatelle pollo, pizza pescatore and spaghetti bolognese, all freshly cooked and delicious. Staff were very friendly and accommodating to our little boy. Would definitely come again. Great value for a great meal.

When staying in Ryde for the weekend, we stumbled across Olivo on the Friday when we arrived. The food was excellent and we enjoyed a very relaxing meal. On the Saturday, when looking for somewhere to eat, we just couldn't resist going back for more. This time we started with cocktails and enjoyed a more vibrant atmosphere (as it was... More
