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.

    Tasty Italian food, but soft drinks “Diet Cokes coming out of small glass bottles are useally flat.” This has happened on many occasions on visits to Olivio. On my recent visit I deliberately asked for a Diet Coke with no ice in the glass. Surely enough the small glass bottle the Diet Coke came out of was flat. Otherwise the staff at Olivio arealways friendly and restaurant is kept clean.

    The great thing about Olivo is the consistent quality of food and service over time

    The staff were so accommodating and friendly to all their customers. We had 2 birthday celebrations that night and they prepared everything so well for us. The manager in particular was so helpful and he bagged everything up nicely for us. The appetisers were good and portions larger than we expected. The mains were very good too, authenticity of the food really shined through. Overall, a very good experience. It's obvious why this restaurant has won the best service award, and no doubt they will win again.

    Booked lunch for two and requested ground floor seating which proved to be no problem. Service was efficient and not rushed. Excellent food and Olivia is definitely on my list of favourite restaurants to use in Guildford.

    Really welcoming, helpful, and considerate waiting staff, and the food was excellent in every respect - flavours, textures & portion sizes. Service was prompt without being rushed. Very satisfied!

    Very welcoming and attentive to ensure we finished in time for the theatre nearby. Delicious food at reasonable prices. I particularly like their Spaghetti Bolognaise.
