I have been here a few times and each time you seem to wait an extra long time for your drinks order. Unfortunately not many of the staff have English as a first language and communication is a bit hard at times. Overall a great place but the staff need to be quicker with getting the drinks to the tables and also the food orders.

Food is amazing. Our host accidentally dropped our dish and new ones had to be cooked. Felt like it was a bit rushed but every other time it has been amazing

The food was a bit rich, but the portion sizes were good. For a location close to the water they offered a good promotion for 2 courses.

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.
