We had walked past this place a few times in the past and decided to have lunch here. The place is busy most days which would seem to indicate people like what is on offer. The menu is huge and a bit daunting when deciding what to choose. I opted for a spaghetti dish with bacon and chilli and my... More

Had lunch at the Olive once again. We had the Rustic pizza. Wow it was great two of us shared it and it was great. Very fresh and cooked to perfection.

We had heard so much positive about it and I was keen to try but unfortunately we where disappointed through out. It was loud so a conversation was impossible (we did sit inside) the food was extremely fatty and we all felt sick afterwards.

We are Redcliffe locals and have dinned at the Rustic Olive more times than I can count. The food is consistently delicious and the menu is huge with plenty to choose from. The staff and owner are friendly and the service is fast. Our favorites are the blue vein gnocchi, spaghetti marinara, marco polo pizza and the rustic flat bread.... More

We were served by Ash who was friendly professional and gave us outstanding service. This BYO restaurant is situated on the waterfront with wonderful views overlooking Morton Bay. The menu is extensive and would recommend checking out the menu on the WEB prior to your visit. The food we had was fabulous tasty and authentic Italian. The servings were very... More

This restaurant was recommended by a young lady we met on a bus to Scarborough. We're glad we took her advice. It didn't hurt that it was a beautiful night, but both of us were both very happy with the food and the service. We both had the Peking Pork risotto - pork was moist and flavoursome and the risotto... More

On a cold Friday night, the Rustic was crowded but our table was on the footpath although protected by awnings and heaters. Service was good even with the huge crowd. Sadly, the food always disappoints me and having spent two months in Italy this year, I can't detect much similarity between good Italian food throughout Italy and food at the... More

Had a beautiful meal and would like to mention our fantastic waiter Ash. He was absolutely brilliant, couldn't fault his service or the food.

We usually dine at this restaurant once a year while visiting friends. We were very disappointed this time. We had dinner here twice over the two weeks, while we were staying in Redcliffe and it wasn't as nice as the years before. The dishes were very oily and made us both feel sick for a good 24 hours after eating.... More
