Been to this restaurant several times before with amazing service. Tonight was a bit disappointing, food was still amazing but service staff was not up to standard. The one waitress that was there was run of her feet trying to help or the patrons but her colleague was no help and he just stood behind the counter. To many clients for just one waitress. So sad as we left without dessert as it took over 3 hours to just get starters and mains. Will be back but hope the service improves.

Quaint little Italian that didn’t live up to the reviews I had read. Can’t complain about the service, professional and efficient but I would say the food was average. If you want a simple Italian go for it, if you want something special this is not it in my opinion

We had a lovely time in L'olivo, it was quiet but meant we could chat to our hearts content. The food was excellent and the service also
We will be back again

Very good service and an excellent Italian menu. The fish stew was especially good. Good vale compared to other places in the area.

Not a great night unfortunately. I had to order three times before I found something on the menu that they had. My mother ordered the Calamari which was very poor. It was worse than the frozen bags from Tesco. The pasta was good on the whole, but not great. Conversely, the waitress was great. She obviously cared more than the 'chef'. I'd be surprised if this restaurant lasts.

All the food was excellent and the service was equally so. Have been several times since the restaurant opened and never been disappointed. An excellent addition to Castelnau!!!

I was looking for an |Italian restaurant to take 3 guests in the Barnes area and stumbled upon L'Olivo Italiano and decided to give it a try. We were greeted like long lost friends on arrival and were looked after like royalty. The food was fantastic, and so was the wine, everyone had a great time and although not very busy, the staff gave the place a really happy atmosphere, none of us can recommend this restaurant more highly and suggest that if you're reading this review, consider paying them a visit.
