What a wonderful find in Ryde. Food was beautifully presented and very tasty. Our server could not do enough to please us. My daughter is Vegan and could not find anything to suit on the menu so our server suggested a salad which included veg and olives along with pine nuts (which my daughter requested) - no problem. All our... More

My wife, my 3 year old son and I have just eaten a great lunch here. It was so good I felt it necessary to make the transition from TripAdvisor lurker to proper reviewer! Children's bolognaise was excellent quality of substantial portion. My wife says her pasta bake was home made and lovely. My burger was the best I have... More

Great cocktails and wine. Fantastic dough balls filled with mozzarella. Disappointingly poor catering for vegetarians. :-(

Thought we'd try this nice looking place as we had friends over to visit. (lunchtime) To be fair the menu is fine and the surroundings are fine but most of our experience stopped there. Four of us ordered different meals, two pizza's, risotto and seafood tagliatelli. The pasta/rice dishes arrived first and were fine and then we noticed some animated... More

Delicious food and excellent service, we went without a reservation at around 3pm and it wasn't busy. My boyfriend had said that the only negative thing he could say was that he wished the bolognese was a bit meatier. I would say that the menu is a bit pricey, but the food is worth it, the dough balls are especially... More

Olivo needs to try harder if it wants to live up to its high prices. £11 for a pizza with one topping is pretty steep, and £4 for a tiny, over-salted side salad is a joke. The restaurant is quite large so when it is busy, it is very noisy. We were in a downstairs area that somewhat lacked atmosphere.... More

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
