Ate here feb 7th, was very busy and we had not booked but we were found a table and told we could have it for an hour. This was fine for us and we enjoyed a fantastic sharing starter, followed by pasta for myself and pizza for my husband, all food was top notch. No complaints at all on that... More

A fantastic restaurant in Union Street - I would suggest the best in Ryde at this time - have been now on several occasions and always top notch ! Great place to eat for the food and excellent service and atmosphere.

Had a lovely evening with friends celebrating a birthday. Food amazing as ever, I would recommend Olivo's pizzas, they really are good. There were 13 of us in our party, all the food came at the same time, no hassle no fuss. I had noticed on previous visits staff have not necessarily been attentive towards me when I have visited...

We have eaten at Olivo on several occasions whilst visiting family on the Island. On every occasion, we have been delighted with the quality of the food, the attentiveness of staff, the ambience, in fact everything about the place. The prices are such that we use it any evening we decide to eat out, not just for special occasions. Despite,... More

We visited Olivo yesterday for lunch and I have to say everything was spot on. The food was amazing and the service was first class. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the island.

The food was excellent. Some recommendations are, for a starter, the prawn and couscous, Gamberoni, deliciously garlicky, and for mains, the duck and chestnut rigatoni was amazing and the pollo linguine was pronounced very good. A simple rocket salad (a bit small for the price) was also great, as was a rich spaghetti bolognese. Puds? I recommend the homemade waffle... More
