Did lunch a few times at Olio with friends. It's a nice little place that does offer a lovely selection of good Italian plates. Never went wrong and the staff are very friendly. Would recommend for those who need to escape the work place during lunch break.

I visited the Hamra area outlet. The facility is pleasant, and the service was good. Their portions were quite big (I could not finish my meal).
