    Disappointed that it took 40 minutes to have our order taken including any drinks and our mains arrived 20min before we were meant to give the table back. Some of the dishes were really nice, others pretty average. The guancale in my carbonara was mostly burnt. Not great.

    Great service and nice wait staff. However could do with either a kids menu or at least a couple of kid friendly options. The carbonara was ok but needed more bite in the flavour. Capricossa pizza was again ok. Too much ham not enough mushrooms

    Highly recommend! For beautiful authentic Italian food and fun, friendly service at a fine dining restaurant this is one not to miss… We ordered 4 x pizzas and cocktails/wine and everything was exceptional both in taste and the way it was cooked with love and skill. Even the gluten free pizza was outstanding! Not to mention the warm and funny staff caring for us during our meal. Looking forward to visiting again soon!

    Olive and Angelo was fantastic. The service was superb from beginning to end. And the food was amazing particularly the gamberi grigliati, the wood fired pizzas and tiramisu. It is a bit expensive but mostly excellent value. Would go again for another special occasion.

    Service was really good. Got served by some young lad with glasses who was very professional. Unfortunately it was a little loud sitting right next to the bar/pizza oven with waiters constantly rushing past us. Food was average. Ordered Carbonara which was okay, Gnocchi was delicious and side of shoe string fries were soft and oily. Would not go back again for the price.

    We went to Olive and Angelo for the first time this evening. We were really excited about eating there as reviews had been really great. When we entered we were treated really well by the staff and had great expectations. We ordered in around 15 minutes, and after about 30 minutes the entrees came. The entrees we had were lovely, the fennel and pork sausage and the focaccia. We then however waited over an hour for our mains to arrive, after asking several times where the mains were. When the mains did arrive the carbonara was cold, and we were advised by Angelo that is how carbonara is served - as a cold dish. Had this been the case it would have all been cold - not just the top layer , from sitting on the pass too long. When we decided to leave - because of waiting over an hour for mains that were cold - the staff argued with us and dismissed our concerns about the meal. It took another 7 mins to sort out what we would pay for - and not pay for (the main meals). I had high hopes and expectations for this restaurant and am so disappointed by the service and their response to our concerns.

    Such a great restaurant. It has become my son’s favourite, not just because the pizza, focaccia, and calamari are delicious, but also our lovely waitress Sophie with her attentive, warm and bubbly waiting, and Angelo with his booming baritone voice he sings happy birthday to a lucky patron. Also a lovely guy that has hit just the note for service, atmosphere and food.

    Outstanding food n service. Your staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Lovely restaurant and will certainly return in near future. The birthday singing from the staff made the night. The fact the staff acknowledged another engagement in 90 mins was perfect and they worked hard to get us in and done. Certainly a top ten Brisbane Restaurant

    Excellent service and food. Traffic in peak hour mid-city makes unavoidable noise for a mostly outdoors setting, but ambience and layout mutes it somewhat. Perfect after 7pm.

    Have eaten here before & loved it. I had interstate visitors with me & I had raved about this place. Unfortunately this time around the service was not up to standard. Wait time on meals was horrid, mix up with meals was annoying & blame attributed to new staff member was not well received. Wait staff were very pleasant but follow through was poor. I am writing this review to keep this business sharp & on top of Customer Service which let us down significantly. Great ambiance, great food & I know they can do much better. Keep an eye on the basics guys to retain your customers. I will definitely give the place a second chance as I trust in the Management to turn this around.

    Olive and Angelo's was fantastic. Being Coeliac I was very impressed that they make 2 GF pastas and a GF pizza base onsite and are very knowledgeable and caring with cross contamination. My husband and friend's meals were also fabulous. Lovely atmosphere is the courtyard, even in winter.

My in laws absolutely loved dining here last night and they’ve asked us to go back any time they visit us in Brisbane. Olive and Angelo’s will quickly become a family tradition for us. Thank you all for such a beautiful dinner!

    The spiced apple cocktail was divine. Service good. But food was disappointing. There’s only pasta and pizza on the menu so one would expect a hearty meal. Had the beef ragu tagliatelle and could hardly see any beef. The pizza was burnt, dry and salty. The clam pasta had 12 clams of which one was closed. Overall the food was very dull looking and lacked flavour. I had been there before and thought the food much better then so disappointed this time.
