Had eaten at Olio several times before. Memory of scallops and gnocchi being very good. I recall they used to serve the two together, but have now split them on the menu. That was wise because they could never get both right -- either the scallops were overcooked or the gnocchi colder than it should have been. I also remembered... More

Went for lunch and ate the meatball appetizer and gnocchi for the main course. My wife had the beet salad with the steak sandwich. Everything was excellent. The beets were fresh and were not canned like in some restaurants. The service was friendly and competent. The portion sizes were just right. The wine list had a number of wines that... More

Went with another couple. American, Italian & Asian fusion. Everything ordered was very good and tasty. Pork belly and beet salad starters. Bass with bok choy and soy miso, Cioppino, House made Cavatelli, and House made Fettuccine. Definitely would recommend and go back.

This small restaurant has excellent food and a funky atmosphere. It's a bit off the beaten path, but worth the short trip

Parking available but difficult, very small place, very friendly. Full bar, small wine list. Food was mixed - I had a very dry pork belly which is hard to do. I thought the food was fine, but for the price there are places with better food.

We had brunch here yesterday and were very impressed. There's a good free car park at the rear. Quite a small menu - maybe 8 or 9 items but there was a good variety as well as breakfast cocktails. The service was welcoming and we had Tim, an attentive waiter. It appeared to be fully booked and tables we a... More

My husband and I have been visiting Olio regularly since the day it opened. We enjoy visiting just to see what Chef Steve has planned for dinner or brunch. He incorporates local, fresh and in season ingredients to continuously add to an already amazing menu. Brunch is one of our favorite times to visit. We recently took a new couple... More

My husband and I go to Olio often (a few times a month). We've gone there for brunch, date nights, birthday celebrations and we even had our baby shower there (all of our guests were raving about the food for days after the shower). This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area, both the food and service are... More

The wait was intolerable and apparently that's my fault for visiting with my family at a busy time. Seriously waited 45 min between order and delivery. They didn't have a glass for my beer, just a bottle, so I used my cocktail glass. The Chicken main and beat salad very good, the Cavatelli tasteless and the meatballs OK. What really... More
