Went here today
Food great , service great.
Only thing let it down no children’s menu.
It’s not the price it’s just a huge waste of food. Just left on table, couple of quid cheaper and smaller portions. Been to olio 3 times now always good.

Most random decor and music ever, slightly hard to relax with a random photoshopped view of the alps behind you and crazy music that had no real genre at all. Staff were good but when we asked which dish of two the waiter would suggest he said ‘they’re both the same just one is risotto and one is pasta’ not really what we asked. Food had very little taste and the risotto was far too undercooked. Wasn’t asked for drinks to be topped up or if we wanted coffee after. Bread started was delicious and it was reasonably priced for what we got. But overall disappointing.

The restaurant is so well presented, clean and shiny and bright, and we were made to feel welcome immediately. The daily menu had plenty of good fish and meat options, but the full menu was also available with all the classic Italian dishes. The calves liver from the daily menu was cooked to perfection, and there was no fuss (or extra charge) to exchange the mashed potato for some buttered spinach. The lasagne was served very hot and very tasty. The selection of Italian wine was a good choice, and very well priced. We couldn't resist the desserts and they were obviously home made and very luxurious.It was raining as we left, and the waiter kindly gave us a spare umbrella. A very lovely lunch experience.
