Another excellent meal at Olio on the Green. Pre dinner drinks at the bar and attentive service which was not rushed. Food was served hot, looked fresh and tasted delicious. We were sat next to kitchen serving point and got to see many other lovely looking dishes too. A bit more expensive than chain restaurants but well worth the extra. Recommend and will be back again!

Four of us had lunch here earlier this week and thoroughly enjoyed it overall. There is a lunch menu as well as an a la carte menu and we kind of mixed and matched. The large, spicy tomato juice drinks we ordered were the largest I'd ever seen and were excellent. All four meals, which included Avocado & Prawns, Lasagne, Tuna, Veal with mushrooms etc were very good though the veal itself was a little bland. Desserts were Profiteroles, Strawberries & clotted cream cheesecake, Sicilian Lemon Cheesecake and the Caldo al Cioccolato Fondente - very good indeed.

The service was excellent. Free car parking is available opposite the restaurant.

Olio on the green, delicious food, lovely staff and a great place for a celebration. We ate here on Sunday lunchtime, it was refreshing to try somewhere out of town. Lovely modern decor and a warm welcome on arrival. I had the seafood risotto and there was an abundance of mussels and prawns, well cooked with a capaccino and lemon cheesecake for dessert. It was very busy with lots of parties being catered for, the staffing levels were excelent and we weren't kept waiting, would highly recommend and would definitely look forward to returning.

We enjoyed our experience here. The restaurant is warm and comfortable (albeit a bit noisy). The menu is interesting with a great choice, particularly of fish/seafood dishes, but with lots of other dishes too. We had marinated olives and garlic bread to start. The olives were small but very tasty. The garlic bread was a bit bland for my taste.
I had the pappardelle amatriciana which was absolutely delicious, with a great depth of flavour. The portion size was good too. My husband had the skate wing which was also very good. The merlot was first class.
Service was excellent.
It's quite pricey so it's somewhere we would go once in a while, rather than our regular Saturday night meal out.
