Service, ok, pizza pretty good ... Got a 6/10 from my Italian collegue, so not so bad .. There are better places in Aarau, but this is a good location if you are heading out afterwards

Oliv has a great location in the heart of Aarau old town. The menu is ok, they serve normal Italian food e. g. gnocchi, pasta, pizza. But it is a bit pricey if you look at the quality of the food. However the staff was very rude, the waitress didn't even said thank you for a undeserved tip.

I went there for lunch with some friends. At the beginning we had to wait approximately 15min till we could order our drinks. Then after we ordered our food, we waited again for an unusual long time. While starving, the waitress came back and we had to confirm our order again. She didn't properly speak or understand German. The food... More

We went for lunch. The food was quite good and the location outside nice. The service however was very unfriendly, rude and very slow. Never again!

We came for lunch and there were not many people around. Service was ok as well as the food. Nothing special and sauce was definitely convenience food.

After 13 years again in Aarau we searched something simple for dinner. Here we got very quick a good pizza for a fair price.

I ate lunch a few times at the restaurant Oliv - and really am not sure how to describe the place - especially in regard to the personnel. I actually always enjoyed the food, which is not especially exquisite or anything the like, but simple and good (=worth the price). However the quality of the service depends largely. At times...
