“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This isn't the place to go if you are in a hurry, but the food is good, however somewhat inconsistent. I have tried the same meal for breakfast on two different occasions and it tasted different each time. I guess it depends on the who is the chef that day. The baked items are excellent.

“Overpriced, slow, mediocre food.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Well, first of all, you order at the counter. Painfully, painfully slow process. Then you choose a table. Painfully slow food delivery. My salad was small and just okay, but waaay overpriced. My companion's soup had a very odd taste that couldn't have been intentional. We asked the waiter (nicely) whether anyone had tasted it. He took it back, and 5 minutes later someone erased that soup off of the chalkboard. I guess someone had decided to taste it, finally.
Instead of offering to remove the malevolent soup from our bill, the waiter just brought us the other "soup of the day," which tasted as if a bunch of sugar had been added to it. My companion dutifully consumed the Sugar Soup. We will not be returning to Olive.

“Best Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

I enjoyed the best pizza, most authentic crust, I have had outside of Italy. Fabulous! Great place, lots of interesting seating options, but kind of a weird ordering process.

Highly recommend

“Good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Wasn't the best food or service, but was convenient at a needed time. I don't like having to order and pay before being seated. The food wasn't great - too much bun and not enough roast beef on my sandwich!

“over rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This cafe gets high ratings from travel books; but I found it over rated for food and price. The steak sandwich I ordered was mostly bread. Prices are high for what you get. Dessert was a $7 choc. tart which looked pretty, but didn't deliver on flavor and the crust was not tasty. Noisy place. Location is good as is on main street and the street side tables offer "people watching".
