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.

    A culinary delight. Fish dishes were freshly cooked, tasty and had delicious accompaniments that complemented the main food perfectly. Not cheap, but felt it was worth it.

    Good as always.

    Really great restaurant, the staff were helpful and friendly. The food was brilliant and on a busy night when they were near full we didn't have to wait long for food either. It's the only restaurant I've found as well that if you book online and let them know about allergies they check with when you arrive and give a choice of options which you can have. To sum up great customer service and great food. Will definitely be coming back

    We had the fixed price menu which was excellent. The melon in the prosciutto e melone was in peak condition and the main course of spinach and ricotta ravioli with rich tomato and mixed Mediterranean vegetables was top notch. Service was friendly and good.
