Lively atmosphere, great food and very reasonable prices! Staff were really friendly and seemed keen to make sure you enjoyed your meal! Would recommend the Garlic Dough Petals as a starter! Will be eating here again for sure!

Visited The Olive Press last week after some really good reviews on TA and wasnt disappointed. Fillet steaks were excellent. Wine was reasonably priced and desserts were very good. Staff were excellent and we really enjoyed or visit here. We will visit again!

Good italian food - well cooked on each occasion I have been. One of the best in town despite more high profile ones opening nearby this definitely beats them. Seats are hard and uncomfortable so don't plan to be there for hours!

We visited on Sunday for our anniversary. The food was the best meal we have ever had. The service was fantastic even though they got busy very quickly, we were treated like royalty. Thankyou so much for a fantastic evening.

Always consistently good. Inexpensive, quick, relaxed dining for any kind of group, be it pre-theatre with friends or a bite to eat with the family.

Olive Restaurant & Bar in Manchester is a few steps off Deansgate, was voted best working lunch venue in town, but it’s great for pre-theatre and family meals too. The dining room blends rustic Italian with modern style. Think exposed brick, farmhouse furniture, cool lighting and sleek bar. Only the freshest ingredients go into the classic and innovative Italian dishes; such as handmade artisan pastas, stone-baked pizzas, lighter salads and a selection of meat and fish. We are child friendly and feature a dedicated healthy menu, make-your-own pizzas and miniature versions of any dish on the menu. Our exemplerary service is renowned throughout Manchester and we strive to ensure everyone will return time and time again.
