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.

  • ((((( 22 April 2017 by John Aronson from Epsom

    Excellent in every respect, highly efficient and pleasant staff very smartly uniformed, immaculately clean restaurant, I had a crab tagliatelle dish and my wife had ravioli, both were excellent, my wife accidentally spilled her glass of wine which was served in a very nice bulb shaped glass but vulnerable to being knocked over, all cleared up with the minimum of fuss and a complementary refill was provided. Sweets too were first rate. Perfect location for Yvonne Arnaud theatre. Very reasonable cost for such quality.
