Group of six of us had lunch at The Square Olive today. This was my second visit to this restaurant. The first time I went, the food was really good and so were the staff. I was hoping that today's visit would be as good - it was even better. I thoroughly recommend this lovely Italian restaurant.

Had dinner here as a group of 14 while away on work. The restaurant seems to be quite nicely decorated but was absolutely dead which is always a worry on a Friday night. Nice food and cocktail menu. Service was slow and they forgot drinks and had to be asked to take our food order. Food was nice when it... More

This Italian restaurant is very near Hampton court - just opposite the station. There were 12 in our party but the staff were brilliant in moving tables to accommodate us - we had not prebooked. There was lots of choice on the menu and service was friendly, efficient and quick. Can highly recommend this restaurant.

As part of our day incorporating a boat trip on the Thames we booked lunch at the Square Olive. In fact lunch time was very quiet and so booking wasn't really needed. However, I believe Tastecard require a booking to be made so we complied. This restaurant is superior to the usual "chain" style Italians that one finds in the... More

We arrived at the bar at 10pm and waited at the bar to be served. The girl behind the bar ignored us and had to be prompted by the lady singer. We then waited and were then told in a very rude manner that the bar was closed . Who closes a bar at 10pm on a Saturday night. Very... More

Ended up here as ( zizzi was full ) across the road, lucky for us this happened, nicer restaurant, room between tables, very spacious room at bar area, outside tables if weather nice too. Good choice of food on menu, Italian themed, very tasty, quick service and attentive staff, but not in your face, around if needed. Go here, you... More

I've been to the Square Olive on several occasions and the service is always very attentive, welcoming and warm. The food is good and although slightly more expensive than a chain restaurant, there's an opportunity to use a Taste Card, but not withstanding that, you will not feel rushed along here! Set conveniently close to Hampton Court station, this place... More

Remember the days before restaurant chains? Friendly, family service? Freshly made dishes? Welcome Back! We are here to offer you all of that.Square Olive was born out of a desire to bring friends and family together around the table. The owners gathered a group of creative, enterprising friends to create an Italian restaurant that reminded them of warm, gregarious Italian hospitality. Joining in the effort and putting the original 'authentic' mark on the menu was Carmine of Abruzzo. The gracious smiles and genuine hospitality that greet you at our doors and make you feel part of the family while you are dining with us was Ornella of Napoli.Everyone you meet here is happy you've come, and they're genuinely dedicated to having you visit with us frequently. This is our home. You are our guest. And we will attend to your dining experience with a degree of care and attention to detail unrivaled elsewhere. A deep desire to serve others is the secret to success of a gracious host. And its why, at Square Olive, we want you to always leave with a smile.
