The location is good, right in the center of town which makes it easy to walk around Livingstone. The breakfast is very good. The menu has a wide variety so you wont get bored with the food, lunch, dinner, etc. They staff are extremely helpful when it comes to organizing activities to do around Livingstone.

Olga's Italian Corner is well located near city center and just opposite from Shoprite. Staff was very nice and welcoming. English breakfast are quite generous, rooms are spacious, clean but somewhat dark. Mosquito nets are provided as well as one bottle of water per day. Since location is very close to the main road, it is sometimes very noisy. WIFI...

Walked in hoping for dinner. Got dinner and also ended up getting a room at a fantastic rate. Manager was extremely helpful and friendly. Our only regret is that they were sold out the next night as we would have loved to stay there a second night. Fantastic breakfast in the morning, spacious bathroom, and good sized beds with mosquito...

We could only stay one night at Olga's, but we would have loved to stay more. The place is really friendly and the rooms are very comfortable. The staff was particularly welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. We had two meals at the restaurant and it's real Italian food, so go for it if pizza and pasta...

We love Olgas. Nice Italian restaurant, good food and cosy place. Pizza great, and staff is friendly. Best pizza in Livingstone. Bit small so we hope that they could enlarge it a bit and perhaps do something about the mosquitos. Parking is a bit scarce and tiny.

I visited Olga this July, and had a good experience. The food was good, the service was great, and the venue was ok. I loved the outdoor feel, but sadly with the cobination of the swarms of mosquitoes and the average seating, my experience lacked enjoyment. But if your looking for a quick grab with friends, this is the spot....

I had checked out Victoria Falls quite thoroughly on the Zimbabwe side at the conclusion of a safari and wanted to get a sense of Livingston. Olgas is a good central place to stay but a little noisy at night and the beds are a bit hard. The showers are good and hot, the Internet is OK, the piazzas were...

I liked to stay there, the staff is very professional and the income is used to help pupils to study in a professional school in the suburbs of Livingstone. The food is also good and there in internet for free

I spent three nights at Olga's while visiting the falls. Best location in Livingstone - any further in the direction of the falls and you'll be too isolated to walk around at night. Step outside your door and there are plenty of cafes to choose from, a taxi rank, and the brilliant Livingstone museum is within walking distance. I love...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Olga's the Italian Corner is the final stage of an educational project for the most vulnerable youth of Livingstone. It opened in 2008 as a production unit in support of YCTC (Youth Community Training Centre), a certified school built by the Diocese of Livingstone and CELIM (an Italian NGO). All Olga's profits go to YCTC which provides training in catering, tailoring, plumbing, electrical, metal construction, computer studies and bricklaying to orphans and vulnerable youth. Most of Olga's employees come from the YCTC's catering course, which results in the project being self-sustainable. Olga's is located in the center of Livingstone and only 9 kilometres far from the famous Victoria Falls, easily reachable with minibus or cab. It is 15 minutes far from the airport and walking distance from the main attractions of Livingstone: bars, travel agencies, shops, museum, grocerystore, etc. ... more   less
