I had not been for some time but service, ambiance and a varied, generous-serve menu mean I'll be back! My friends -locals - had not been before and were fulsome in THEIR praise and plan to return.

Have been going to The Olive Tree for many years usually with a large group, have never had a bad meal. Service is great and very accommodating, they even made me a meal that has been removed from the menu!

Absolutely wonderful food and excellent value. Great service and atmosphere. This was my first time (I've been wanting to go for some time) and I wasn't disappointed at all. I love this place and I will go again.

A very pleasant place. There was only large group on the night we were there. If it had been busier with more large groups, the noise would have made conversation almost impossible..

About The Olive Tree

All In the Family There’s a reason The Olive Tree has been around in South Melbourne since 1971. Simple, honest Italian food – that’s what keeps patrons coming back. Tucked away on Park Street not far from Domain Interchange, The Olive Tree has charm in abundance with its brick-lined walls and the light streaming in through the front window. For a romantic date, dinner with friends, or a special occasion, The Olive Tree offers something for everyone. The menu is bursting with classics. Go for the oysters, smoked Tasmanian salmon, fried calamari or barbeque octopus to start. Patrons rave about the pasta dishes, which are simple but full of flavour. Choose from vegetarian penne or fettuccine with shrimps, scallops, mussels, calamari, prawns and fish. Whether you’re in the mood for something from the grill, a traditional veal parmigiana or beef burgundy, there’s a solid selection for mains, too. If you’re looking for a meal that will truly warm you up, head to The Olive Tree. This family-owned restaurant is sure to treat you like you’re part of the family too. Best dish: Duck risotto
