Dear diners, to reserve for groups of 15 or more, please call the venue directly
Situated among leafy surroundings on Blues Point Road in McMahons Point, Olivo On Blue is a place to relax and take time to enjoy the small pleasures in life. There is nothing small, however, about their staggering contemporary Italian menu, which showcases a deep passion and refined skill in the culinary ways of the bel paese. More like a deep gash than a mere cut above the average Italian eatery in Sydney, Olivo On Blue is well worth a visit whatever the occasion, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and more than capable of catering for functions and large groups.
Good range of menu offerings. A great spot for dinner.
Nice local restaurant. The food was good as with the service.
We specifically booked this restaurant having reviewed the official online website for the restaurant. However, upon arrival we were advised that the 4 items we, as a group were keen to have, had been removed from the menu a few months ago. Very disappointing. Surely, as a business it's not too much to ask to have your own website up to date?
Housed in a homely old Sydney building on Blues Point Road, Olivo On Blue delivers a hundred times over on its promise of offering heartwarming, homestyle Italian satisfaction otherwise sadly hard to come by around McMahons Point. Part of that is simply the restaurant’s style and atmosphere, enhanced by welcoming and knowledgeable staff well versed in the celebrated Italian style of eating, serving and socialising. Even more so, though, this immense satisfaction comes from the food, which has one foot firmly in Italian tradition and another stepping confidently in new, delicious directions.
The vibe around this nook of McMahons Point is relaxed, and Olivo On Blue are of no mind to disrupt this. The dining area is classy but casual, while a large alfresco section lets diners relax in the sun and watch the world go by along Blues Point Road. Italian restaurants all around Sydney rarely devote so much time to proper homemade preparation as Olivo On Blue, with fresh pastas and slowly fermented pizza doughs among the many ways you can taste the difference that time and care make. It’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and frankly it wouldn’t be a stupid idea to settle in for all three at Olivo On Blue.
