Review of Olio On The Green

Olio On The Green
Ranked #1 of 8 Restaurants in Writtle
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 June 2018 via mobile

We were a party of 9 mostly adults out for a birthday meal. Something for everyone on the menu which had plenty of standard Italian restaurant dishes, plus an extensive range of fish specials. What sets it apart is the excellent quality of cooking and freshness of ingredients. Specials tried included turbot, monkfish and swordfish, all perfectly cooked. Good wine list with some unusual and v nice Italian wines. The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgable and the restaurant airy in nice location opposite the green with some outside seating. This was a bit more expensive than other places we’d usually go for this type of gathering e.g. gastropubs, but the quality made up for that.

We visited on a Sunday to celebrate my birthday. The staff were very attentive & knowledgeable about the menu. We couldn't fault the food, it was delicious. The location on the village green is lovely. There is a car park on the opposite side of the green.

We had waited weeks to get a table but not the experience i had been hoping for. Quiet when we arrived. Staff very attentive and good interactions. Garlic bread anti pasti very ordinary. Ordered spaghetti con polpette and waited ages to be served bolognese. Good flavour but meat had no texture. Tiramisu excellent. Got very busy and very noisy. Obviously the place to be seen!
