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.

    We enjoyed good food, good prices and excellent service in a lovely old building.

    I recently visited Olivo's with some friends and advised that I required a gluten free menu. Whilst there was very little choice, the chef cooked a delicious dish specially for me. My friends enjoyed their meals too. We were placed on a small table near the stairs which was cramped but the service was very good. We enjoyed our evening.

    Very nice restaurant, some years since our last visit, but will definitely be going again in the near future. My favourite soup is Minestrone and by good luck it was the soup of the day and excellent, our 3 main courses were 2 off Pasta and Fish all were again excellent. The dining area we were in was upstairs and while quiet at the start soon filled up and the atmosphere was terrific. The only negative comment I can think of was that we could hear some faint Italian music downstairs, we would have loved to have heard it upstairs too.

    We loved our recent meal at Olivos and ate far more than usual because we couldn't resist the lovely menu.
    The food was excellent, matched by the warm welcome on arrival and attentive service. We will be back.
