Very enjoyable meal, I highly reccommend the Cartoccio, which was cooked to perfection and presented amazingly, wrapped in foil in the shape of a swan, and apart from the presentation it tasted amazing. Visited on a Saturday, but it was very quiet, only 4 other tables were occupied, but in fairness I think that was due to the rugby.

On a cold,wet, February night we were the only customers in the restaurant. ...so we were a little concerned. This was totally unfounded however. The proprietor was really friendly, the ambiance is very nice and the food( which is why we went there) was incredible. Calamares and the fish cake starters were excellent but were nothing to the steak with... More

I happened to pop in one afternoon with family over the festive period. It was late afternoon so we were seated very quickly as it wasn't too busy. The restaurant is family friendly and offers child size portions which was great. We ordered a range of starters to share between us including Mussels, Calamari and the Garlic bread. The Garlic...

We came here for lunch after finding out that Pizza Express was very busy, the waitress was lovely and very welcoming. Our food arrived quickly and was delicious! I would definitely recommend this Italian restaurant.

Came here for lunch with friends after choosing this place over zizzi. Great location and nice ambience. My risotto was great and my friends like their pasta and meat. Tiramisu was just great, will be back for more!

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

Description
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.
