We chose the $35 special. We chose mussels and wagyu meatballs for entree. risotto and rump steak for mains. Steak was a bit red for medium but chef cooked it a bit longer for us. I would definitely go back. It was nice to have our drinks to- go as we walked around the harbour.

Great value for money. I had the arancini and the mushroom risotto - both excellent - as part of the $35 menu. Very good place on Darling Harbour. Highly recommended.

Great location and views. Food good and portion size good: not too big or too small. Service absolutely hopeless. The place is run by clueless working holiday visa students with seemingly little training. Orders taken wrong on two occasions (once for drinks, once for food). Wine glass spilled by server on one of our party... honest mistake but no offer of discount or making it right (we didn't ask either). Food came out at different times, both starters and main courses; as much as 10 mins apart in one case. Empty glasses and dishes not cleared until we asked. A great location with good food, really let down by bad service.

About Olivo 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.
