There is a good choice of Food, even too much. The quality is not bad, but nothing special. It is a good italian for foreign people, not a good standard for Italians. The pizza is Ok and the pasta nothing special. Location is nice on the top floor and the price is a bit overpriced for what you eat.

Good dinner. On warm summer's evening you can sit outside, under the awning. We had a starter, pasta for two, a glass of vino at £34 so mid range prices. I thought I would get a little more food for the primo piatti so it does not Very Good.

A good place to go for a relaxed evening with good food. Pasta was well cooked with tasty sauces and pizza was excellent. Prices are very reasonable. Nothing too fancy - just a nice evening out.

AS my title explains I have tried this restaurant three times. I am a lover of Italian food and believe if that you offer Italian cuisine you do exactly that and be judged by that. The person who I was with wanted to try if the first time I visited. I had excellent service but was not overly impressed with... More

This is my favourite Guildford restaurant. For us it is the BEST Italian in town bar none. The food is always great with the hot food served on hot plates (a failing in so many restaurants) and the staff are all charming, attentive without being overly so and second to none. Well worth a visit and you will come back... More

Quite pleasant, but a couple of things fell short. Our waitress was a bit charmless, her smile-free demeanour suggesting she'd much rather be elsewhere. Foodwise, the bread basket featured some stale crisp-breads......guys, the clue is in the word 'crisp'. I wanted to send it back, but decided not to irritate our waitress further. Some of our party had fish, which... More

From the moment you step into the restaurant, the customer is served like royalty. The waiters and waitresses are both attentive and patient. Even though the restaurant is always packed and busy, as a customer you are never forgotten and the food is always prompt and hot. With regards to the food itself it is fantastic. It is always fresh... More

Olivo's is not the only Italian restaurant in Guildord but it is one of the best three Italian restaurants in town that serves wonderful food cooked to perfection. Service is friendly with of course Italian hospitality. A good daily set and affordable menu is always avialable to support other traditional dishes with quite a good Italian wine list. It's a...

Only been here once but I tried their steak and their swordfish and it blew my mind. Perfect...straight away shouts quality through food alone. Not the cheapest, but you don't get high standards for nothing hey? My only gripe was the air-conditioning in our particular area - didn't really work very well and it was too warm. The layout of...
