Review of Olio - CLOSED

Olio

Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Was here for lunch last week, staff are friendly and helpful. Lots of choices on the menu and plenty of specials on the board.
I had the special pasta which was just ok, a bit plain and boring just packet pasta tossed with olive oil, chiili, and asparagus.
This place is very loud not a place you want to go for a lunch meeting.

This place is pretty average, with poor service, and in particular forgetting that it is essentially a cafe and not a restaurant, therefore service needs to be snappy to accommodate shorter lunch hours and people going too and from work. The staff are for the most part nice looking, which is something given the lack of service, and the barista is not quite up to scratch in terms of the coffee (bitter) and his personality (even more bitter). I wouldn't recommend this place at all, given the range in the Forum.

A genuine restaurant nestled amongst the numerous take-aways that dominate "dining" in St Leonards. While the coffee rates as "OK" by my reckoning, the food is genuinely good. And while my experience of Olio's is limited to breakfasts and lunches spread regularly over the past few years, peers point to their very positive experiences of evening meals, including wine events.

While I wouldn't pass up options in the city for Olio's, it is certainly worth the drop in for the locals.

Definitely the best coffee shop in SL.
Menu is okay for lunch.
Service is good.
Coffee is good but expensive.
Wifi connection needs fiddling ... But it works.
