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

Good food, Good service, friendly & efficient staff. The whole place has a lovely 'Bistro' feel about it. We were in a group of six and we all agreed we would be happy to recommend this retaurant to anyone. We will be back.

I have been to olivios a few times, with both friends and my partner, the food has always been good but the service has been a bit poor on occasions, with feeling a bit uncomfortable by the staff, now maybe its because of my age? (22) apart from that I would recommend!

Before I sound like I'm moaning, this is a compliment to OLIVO. Yes, they forgot to put prawns in my king prawn spaghetti, however let me say that the experience was a positive one and I give my thanks to the manager for not including the meal cost in our bill. The muscle/scallop spaghetti that I did receive was superb.... More

Arrived in Ryde at 08:00 off the Fishbourne ferry. Recommended to try here for breakfast. Had great coffee waiting for service to start @ 08:30. Full englush cooked to perfection, staff very friendly & welcoming. Will go again but maybe for lunch next time.

We visited without a reservation on a weekend evening. The restaurant was reasonably busy, but not full and we were shown straight to a table in the front overlooking Union St. We were told upon sitting down that our food order could take 45 minutes because they were busy. Overall our experience of the service was mixed - it was... More

The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was served promptly even with the restaurant being very busy. One of the starters was disappointing, £10 for antipasti for two consisted only of two types of ham. We had to order bread and olives as well. All the food we had was very good.

Went in on a weeknight without a reservation; we were a little bit late just after a busy weekend so there were a couple of items off the menu (a good sign that they stock things in freshly!) but still plenty to choose from. Food here has been fantastic every time I was in, but in the past the service... More
