The first Olivo to be opened back in November 1997, Olivo - Guildford is set in a building believed to be a late Elizabethan timber-framed house, dating back to the early 1660s. The current Restaurant Manager is Mr. Paolo Ditale, whose passion for food, service and detail has inspired an amazing menu and a superb style of service. Olivo's cuisine is based on three basic principles: Traditional Italian methods, modern interpretation and the use of quality raw ingredients. It is traditional Italian because the staff do not compromise on the basic principles, and yet it is modern because these classic recipes are revisited, interpreted and adapted by the creativity of the kitchen team. They have also carefully selected the wines in the cellar to provide you with a wide range from all over Italy.

    Excellent meal and friendly and efficient staff. It is great that you are open late so that we can have a meal after the theatre. The carpaccio is so delicious and a good choice of wines.

    Excellent service and lovely food choice. All staff were up to speed on my stated allergies and couldn't have been more helpful. Added bonus we were able to sit outside in the sunshine!

    Lovely atmosphere, great service and best of all, the food. Outstanding Calamari to start, generous portion and beautiful main, Burrida - if you like your seafood, this is for you. Amazing. My guests were also very happy with their chosen meals. Would recommend to anyone who loves an informal and authentic Italian.
