Lovely Food, Fabulous service. I loved the atmosphere and most defiantly come here again. Pasta was great, and I cant explain how good the sticky toffee pudding was! Its a dream.

This bar is amazing, the vibe is very old school. The waiters and bar staff are dressed to perfection, very smart. The place is quirky and comfy, low lighting makes it cosy and great for couples.

We had one pizza each and they were terrible. The dough was tasteless and the toppings were bland. Also the pizzas had no olive oil at all..ironically the restaurant is called Olive.. Desserts were average.

Boring bland food, slow service. Ate as part of a small group, we pre-ordered and it was still very slow. I didn't notice the waiting staff at all... food was nothing to remember.

This is by far the best restaurant in Liverpool as the food is excellent and the service is always with a smile. This has quickly become our favourite place to eat. We would recommend the Olive to groups of friends, couples or families whatever the occasion as you will not be disappointed.

This is such a cute place with great Italian food. There is a good selection on the menu and the garlic bread is lovely to start. I highly recomment the risotto as a main however the salted caramel cheesecake is baked so very dry- not the nicest. The staff are very friendly however the night we went were not the... More

Our forth visit in a fortnight. Our visit today was 'Awful'. Prawn starters were ok but we had ordered muscles and compared to the ones ordered last week.. the sauce was what we'd liken to dishwater (yellow watery with grease floating on the top) No one asked us if our starters were alright until the staff had come over to...
