    We were meet straight away and offered a table of our choice. We were given menus as we sat and confirmed any changers. The meals came quickly and all of us were very happy with both the entrees and main meals. We were given an additional table so that we were more comfortable. We were not rushed and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

    Unfortunately we had booked for dinner but once sitting down for a drink, we decided to leave. Atmosphere was terrible and the drinks we couldn’t even finish.

    Olivo had so many options on their menu, including so many cocktails to choose from too. The food was amazing, perfectly cooked and served really quickly. The staff were so nice and friendly. Would definitely recommend and would 100% go back there again.

    Food was very average, waiter forgot my husbands main course altogether and it was served after we’d almost finished the meal. Very poor service.

    The staff are amazing! We were in a hurry as we had to make a show and they were happy to rush out our order. We received our food within 15 minutes. Thank you!!

    Disappointed in the Cocktails for the price which was far more expensive then other places we had a party of 5 people, i asked the waiter how many garlic and preshetta bread we should get and she said 1 of each then cames the prechetta bread and there is only 2 pieces to share between 5 people. Then i was charged $2 for dried chilli flakes. The rosotto was large grains of rice not a rosotta at all.Was recommended by work colleges will not go again.

    Fantastic location. We had waterside seats. Staff were all friendly. Happy hour very good value and wines/cocktails excellent. Food delicious even if not particularly Italian. Side dish of green veggies wax’s very worthwhile

    Really Poor food. Overpriced. Charged 2 dollars for mayo with chips when we didn’t want ketchup!! Even harbour location couldn’t make up for rubbish meal. Staff were sweet though.

    Friendly staff. Efficiently shown to our reserved table straight away. Very good cuisine. However, there was this one male staff who probably needs a bit more coaching in customer service. Before ordering, we wanted to confirm how the NZ line caught snapper was cooked — grilled? Fried? Battered? He didn’t know (he was probably new on the job & has poor menu knowledge) and said he will ask and get back to us. But he NEVER GOT BACK TO US !!! Now that is a waste of time and a waste of staff salary if that is how he treats customers. Either that, or let management check their standards: make sure that your wait staff have a good working knowledge of how to explain the menu items when asked., before they are deployed on the floor. We did see the “briefing” by a lady in black shorts, no apron - she was briefing the wait staff, before they were deployed on the floor to start taking orders. We had to wait for the proper wait staff “assigned” to our table, to get our answers. Kudos to her. Didn’t get her name, but she was petite & Asian looking & wearing glasses. Now SHE WAS VERY GOOD, friendly & patient. Overall you can just consider this a minor link in their customer service. Food was great.

    Had a gr8 night, lovely view of Harbour by the warm heater. A few staff such as Assos was outstanding, while a pretty “backpacker lady” was not helpful ( she assumed what we JUST ordered 1 minute ago already cooked & could not be changed rather than checking w kitchen the way most trained staff wld do). Overall, food was lovely, especially stuffed battered zucchini flowers.

About the restaurant

An Italian all-rounder. Boasting beautiful waterfront views and an international mix of tourists and local diners, Olivo Harbourside is a great Italian restaurant on the busy boardwalk. Hungry tourists stop to browse the menu, while in-the-know regulars stroll in to grab their favourite harbourside table. Chef Glynn Pedlar aims to please with his extensive menu; there are burgers, handmade pastas, salads, fresh seafood, steaks and even kangaroo (much to travellers’ delight!). The beverage list is even longer, with a huge range of Australian and imported wines, beers, spirits and sparkling, as well as a list of classic and original cocktails. Any night of the week, there are regular specials and deals, as well as a handy early morning breakfast menu. As expected, it’s busy on nights with the Darling Harbour crowd, but it’s a great place to people-watch. A must for any tourist in town. Best dish: Angus rump steak.
