Fabulous evening. We'd planned to have 2 courses only to be healthy for January, but the food was too good to not have dessert as well.

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.

    The restaurant had overbooked for lunch time and the service was appalling - 60 minutes plus for a simple starter and 90 minutes before they served the main course. The two managers ignored us throughout despite the fact that they could see that we had been waiting ages with two young children. We had eaten there many times in the last 12 months so it is not as though they had not seen us before. Once you have sat down at a table they have no further interest other than filling up recently vacated tables. The managers do not have a clue about customer care, they never ask diners if everything is fine and on leaving they cannot take your money quickly enough. No smiles, no eye contact just get going so as we can get the next group seated. We will never eat there again! Anthony

    My friends and I love Olivo. The food is great, the staff very friendly and we always leave after a 'girly chatty lunch' with big smiles. Who wouldn't feel good after three courses from the Olivo menu!
