I went to Olga's a couple of times and I enjoyed every minute there. The waiters are very friendly, especially Josphat and Dora. The Pizza is great and authentic italian food is served, including Pizza pasta salads and more. I never had to wait more than 15 minutes to get my food. In my opinion the BEST restaurant in Livingstone!

We liked it so much the first time we went back again and ordered the same things 2 days later. As we were there during the off season, only one of 2 tables were filled. The salad ingredients were fresh and tasty. Good value.

After a long trip on our Motorbikes from Nata in Botswana via the Ferry and Border post at Kazungula we arrived in Livingstone, Zambia hot and hungry. Olga's was an Oasis serving a cold beer and lovely food with the friendliest service around. The only bad thing was that the speedpoint did not work and we had to walk across... More

I ate here twice during my stay. The first day the pizza was fantastic but the second time I was disappointed with the ravioli. Very nice space and their social mission is commendable, worthy of a visit.

We had breakfast, lunch and dinner here. The food is so delicious, I enjoyed their homemade pasta, bread, ice cream and of course the tasty pizza. Even my mother in law who always asked for African dishes, can stopped recollect the pleasant flavor of the Chicken with roast potato when we were back to Lusaka. The staff are all frendly.

Olgas was an oasis of calm in a very busy city on Christmas day. The pizza was great, along with a glass of wine. We even stayed overnight in one of their rooms. Very clean.

We were so pleased to find this place. The rooms are well appointed with a modern bathroom, comfortable beds with mosquito netting, and a safe. Would be enhanced with small refrigerator in guests rooms. The staff was friendly and efficient. We were impressed that they accepted a student who was studying hotel and restaurant management for her attachment/internship. The food... More

This place is strange. First time we went the food was fantastic - great salad and pasta. Then we went again a few days later, but now the experience was quite the opposite. Ordered the same vegetarian lasagne, but this time it had a plastic-like taste. I believe it had been re-heated at least twice. The chicken was dry and... More
