Description: By the sea in Oslo's new district, near Astrup Fearnley Museum and among art galleries. Tjuvholmen is built on three small islands in the fjord. This inspired Olivia's photographer to travel to Venice to take pictures and film of this Olivia restaurant. Olivia Tjuvholmen has two outdoor seating areas, one by the main street among the galleries and one at the waterfront and evening sun. Our Italian cuisine at Tjuvholmen Thin, crisp, Italian pizza baked in a stone oven. Classic pasta dishes and antipasti. As in all menus Olivia family. Additionally, you can choose meat and fish dishes served as the Italians do it. And here we bake besides the special Al Taglio pizza. Olivia Tjuvholmen has its own delicatessen. We have homemade focaccia, ham, salami, cheese, pesto aioli and other select products that you can take home. And here we bake the special al taglio pizza, which is a special Italian take-away pizza cooked in a special stone oven and cut into slices.

“Great place - why all the music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

It´s one of the few restaurants where I have felt like walking around to have a look. The interior architects used here are top notch. The food is great. The service is great. When I tried to get the stressful music turned down it was impossible. I argued that it was relly late, only a handful people left and then me and my woman. Why not give us some quiet, cozy music? "Managers orders!" Can a good tip fix it? NO! They were obviously remote controlled by this must be overcontrolling? manager. I love the place, but have not been back as much as I should. PLEASE give us peaceful music at 1 - 2:00AM in the morning, will you? I´ll be there!!

“Nice atmosphere - below average food!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

Nice place with good Italian atmosphere, but service was a bit slow while not very busy. Most importantly, the food was below average. Could have made better food at home.

“Nice environment - food just regular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Selection of food was good - the taste was just regular. Beer selection very narrow, but good wine.
Friendly and helpful staff.
So far just an average place, but of course will give it more chances.
Location and Environment was great with outside seating on both sides. Inside even upstairs balcony and downstairs, which made it exclusive. The place itself is worth a visit.
Expensive, that is the norwegian prices all over. This place is on the expensive westside of town, that makes this place quiet reasonable.

“Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Nice location, good service.
BUT I don,t thing they have a real chef since I suspect all the food is pre-made.
We had 3 differernt pizza,s , ok but nothing special, taste like warm up frozen pizza.
So if you like quality food and not overated Deli De Luca food go elsewhere.

“Best Deal on Tjuvholmen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Recently lunched at Olivia's. After waiting at least 5 minutes to be seated (they were not busy), I enjoyed a large pizza slice and soft beverage for only US$20 - quite a bargain in this tres trendy area of Oslo. Definitely recommend!
