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.

    Restaurant has a great bustle about it - v. nice atmosphere. Enthusiastic - though inexperienced - service at table made for an entertaining evening. The accoutrements with our chicken and liver dishes were excellent though both meats were overcooked. The wine list looks intimidating/expensive for an informal night out but the anonymous red 'House' perfectly acceptable.

    delicious food in a fascinating old building. A relaxed and happy atmosphere. The service was a little slow, but responsive.

    We very much enjoyed our meal at Olivo, all of which was nicely presented and beautifully cooked.
    Staff were attentive without being intrusive. Thank you for a lovely evening which we all enjoyed.

    The ambience for a large family get-together was excellent and the food and service first-rate. And the bill less than expected!
