“Good Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Decent nibbles to start, lovely Xmas mulled wine, good service and a pleasant atmosphere. We first visited this restaurant in 2011, however we enjoyed it much more on this occasion. I think it is slightly overpriced compared to elsewhere but I also believe it is nicer than many other Italian restaurants.

Had a very good fillet steak for my main, cooked perfectly. Disappointment with it was it was served with what appeared to be frozen chips! Overall the meal was good and I will probably visit again, although I won't necessarily rush back.....

“Consistently good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

I have been here on numerous occasions as I work not far away and also live nearby. Good atmosphere both in the day and evening. Friendly service. Open, clean kitchens and a wide choice on the menu at reasonable prices. This is a popular choice for dining out and consistently delivers good experience.

“Not the value for the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We where placed under the fan with warm and cold air, this wasnt the best place to be, but we didnt complain since the resturant seemed full, the waiter didnt seem to notice. The service was ok, but nothing more. Garlic pizza bread tastless, Mozzarella and plum tomato salad with fresh basil, pesto and sea salt, tomatos tasteless pesto was ok. cæsar salad was ok, Tiger prawns in a garlic and tomato cream sauce was good, Risotto with roasted chicken, pancetta and fresh Grana Padano was bellow average, it was possible to take the plate upside down while the risotto stayd in the plate. For mains 3 of us ate pizzas, the where ok, the italian burger was very good. We didnt feel we got value for money at the value

“Great food, great service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I went to the Olive Press last night with 38 other colleagues and the service and quality of food was great. The restaurant isn't that easy to find and it doesn't have too much curb side appeal but go down the stairs and it is larger than you think without loosing intimacy. It is clearly popular with locals as it was already quite busy when we arrived at 7.15pm. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would deffinately go again.
