Good service and good food

This is one of the dearer restaurants in Ryde town centre but you get what you pay for. The decor is very nice, the service is friendly and the food is good. They offer a good size menu including a 2 and 3 course fixed price menu and some specials. They also offer a selection of cocktails which the... read more

The staff were incredibly helpful regarding my request for a gluten and lactose free meal. A member of staff went through the menu with me, advising which meals were safe and offering alternative sauces, basically enabling me to have anything I wanted from their very good menu. I was incredibly impressed and really grateful to have been able to enjoy... More

Went for lunch here before getting the ferry home. Great food, well presented and delicious! Lovely restaurant and whilst there was no kids menu as such, the staff were accommodating. Thoroughly enjoyed it, well worth a visit

Arrived here, having not booked, when they were obviously very busy, but the head waiter soon found us a table and settled us down, food was obviously cooked from fresh and we didn't have to wait long for great mains. Service was nice and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend it if you like Italian food

10.15 am my 'Olivos breakfast' was ordered it arrived 20 minutes later, so my expectation was freshly cooked food. Not so - the bacon and sausage were well baked and apart from the egg everything else had been kept warm and were showing signs of drying out. This was quite obvious to the waitress who served us, who never enquired... More

Sat down, and although they're relaxed, when we requested the food came quicker, as we had somewhere to go, they seemed to jump into action, without any compromise to service or food, a very well run restaurant, and a more spacious setting than Newport, giving it a better place to go for an evening meal, whereas Newport is better suited...

We went for the £10.50 special which included a main pasta/pizza/salad, garlic bread or salad side, and a beverage - hot or soft. We had Polo tagliatelle - chicken peppers olives tomato pine kernals cream - delicious, penne funghi - pasta with mushrooms and spaghetti bolognese. Home made food, nicely served. Smaller portions we noted than the main menu, but... More

Having been a regular at Olivo in Ryde, the more I visit, the more I have become disappointed.Only the other week my partner and I went for breakfast and were served the wrong order. He ordered an Eggs Benedict but was served Eggs Florentine. Upon arrival, we stood at the counter where we have often been greeted and only to... More
