For a restaurant in such a busy tourist area you would be forgiven for expecting this to be just another expensive pizza and pasta joint but no, this is better than that. We had lunch here and yes, it has all the usual dishes included in a nice varied menu with lots of choice of good quality food well presented and cooked. Add to that an efficient and attentive waiting staff and it makes for a perfect interlude in your day. It is not particularly cheap to be honest but it is not extortionate either and the little extra is well worth it for the lovely seating with a nice view.

We have spent a week in Verona, enjoying the sites across the whole city. For evening meals we are drawn back to this restaurant. The food is amazing and the staff are attentive without being intrusive. There are many beautiful restaurants but this is worth a visit.

Stopped on a busy Sunday which was also Mother’s Day. Enjoyed a nice meal with a seafood theme, prawns, squid and mussels. Rice & pasta were involved, very typical Italian. Wine was also nice. Wouldn’t say it’s the best I’ve had, I fact you get more flavour in the less prominent restaurants. Also, value for money in not as good either. Nothing new I suppose, if you want a spot in the piazza I would be happy to recommend this one.

You can get to know beautiful Verona almost 100% by foot, which means you can reach most restaurants very easily.

But if you are near Arena di Verona at lunch hour, this is a good option right near the Arena, which is one of the main attractions in the city. And it is definitely not as expensive as you'd think, considering its location.

We ordered a gnocchi and a tagliatelle. Both tasted freshly made and, as per usual in Italy, with top notch ingredients. We were also served bread that didn't seem old, it was certainly baked on the same day.

The service was straight to the point, no qualms there.

You need to be careful with restaurants near touristic attractions. But you can trust that Olivo is a good choice in Verona!

Where else in the world can you sit and look at a 2000 year old amphitheatre, a park and old city walls whilst you eat your dinner? Location, location, location. I wanted to try the local Bigoli pasta so we tried this restaurant. No booking, just showed up and chose our table outside. Food was good- not the best we’ve had but decent. Service was good- again not the best we’ve had. But thoroughly enjoyed soaking up the atmosphere on a Saturday night.
