Further Information

It’s an envious location that needs no qualification, but we can’t resist – perched on the edge of the Harbourside Centre on Darling Drive, this popular contemporary eatery boasts an alfresco dining area with spectacular views across Darling Harbour and Cockle Bay, a view that would warrant a visit in itself. However, with Olivo Harbourside, the panorama is only part of the attraction. Really, what brings business types, travelers, locals and gourmets to this Italian restaurant in Sydney’s beating heart is the amazing food.

Starting with Italian standards done exquisitely (the zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta and pinenuts are very hard to beat) and utilising the best fresh Australian ingredients, the menu at Olivo Harbourside stretches well beyond the horizon of Italian cuisine conventionally observed by Sydney restaurants. Given the Harbourside location on Darling Drive, it’s perhaps no surprise that treasures of the sea are highly prized, from herb- and almond-crusted barramundi to a delectable soup of prawns, baby octopus, calamari, clams, flathead and mussels stewed together in Napolitana sauce with a touch of chilli. Seafood is not the be all and end all at Olivo Harbourside, though, and everything – from Wagyu beef burgers to blueberry cheesecake – is of a quality beyond the Darling Harbour norm.

Fantastic food and fantastic service. Oh and the location is great too. It was Australia day and they were run off their feet but all our meals came out on time and all staff were very friendly and helpful when we would ask questions about items on the menu. We had a party of 7 and every single meal for all of us was very good. Everyone was impressed with the quality of all meals. The rating for noise is average as it was Australia day with a lot going on, we enjoyed the atmosphere. This restaurant is worth every penny! Will definitely come back.

Food good, service average. The hostess was dressed inappropriately, although very nice. Maybe you could buy her a decent jacket so she looks like a manager/hostess. Our waitress didn't know which brand of mineral water you serve (San Pellegrino, one of the most famous brands in the world), but she was friendly and helpful. The food we had was very good however: kangaroo steak was a perfect medium rare, the mussels rated highly, and the antipasti plate was also nice.

Great location if attending the new ICC Theatre. Every meal was delicious and good value for money. We took the $37 special offer of an entree and main or main meal & dessert. We were also there for "happy hour" which included $10 cocktails. Good service.

I was a little disappointed, we had to question a few times if we could sit inside as we had small children and it was cold outside. We were told no a handful of times as there were no tables inside. We ended up getting a table and the whole time we were there the restaurant was half empty anyway. They obviously just wanted to outside full for those passing by. Our order was taken sporadically so drinks and food came at different times. Our waitress was lovely

The staff were lovely but not very attentive, we had to keep asking for drinks. If we had more service the bar tab would've been much higher! Also be aware of the hidden chagres..surcharge was not mentioned on the menu and when I asked for gf bread instead of the cibatta that was served( included as part of the entrée) I was not informed it be an extra 3.50!! Unfair to the celiac's of the world.
