OLIV is a wonderful restaurant and I recommend it without hesitation. The only reluctance to give an 'outstanding' review is that food could have been served a bit quicker. Waited a little longer than expected.

Also, a guest at a nearby table insisted on talking so loud, we found it irritating and unpleasant. Nothing the restaurant could do other than ask the man to cool it, nevertheless, it got in the way of an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable time.

Would definitely recommend! Menu has something for everyone, price point & portion size very nice! We had: turkey soup & capers salad as appetizers 👍👍, truffle gnocchi / tender chicken slices/ mushrooms in a light cream sauce- amazing! Salmon topped with grilled shrimp over basmati- also amazing. Too full for dessert😆!

We enjoyed our lunch . Service was great in the restaurant.
We would have purchased aged balsamic vinegar from their shop however the shop wasn't staffed and the winery wouldn't sell it to us, so we had to leave without it.

OLiV is a hidden gem in NOTL -- the food is always delicious and service competent. Be sure to try their specialty vinegars -- the white balsamic and Cask 18 are my favourites.

Patio is lovely, however the chairs were somewhat less than comfortable!
Understanding hard surfaces are necessary, the seat size was very small, which over time, felt distinctly more and more uncomfortable. Particularly for those of us with arthritis who need a bit more... stability in such.
This is not true of all chairs on the patio - some others appeared to be larger... bottomed... with arms (which ours did not have).
Not my first time visiting this restaurant and certainly won't be my last - as we otherwise, we enjoyed every minute and every mouthful!

The tomato bisque soup was delicious and the garden salad was full of lovely fruit, nuts and feta cheese. Our main was vegetable pasta and really enjoyable. We felt safe and the view by the window was lovely. This is our second time at the restaurant and we will come back again.

The food is terrific and the service was very friendly. The antipasto platter was a hit, great assortment cheese and cured meats. The tapas and the entrees we ordered were absolutely delicious. Great ambience as well, we ate on the spacious patio and it was very easy to maintain social distancing. Most definitely will return.

This was such a disappointing experience.

We ordered the Cab Sauv bottle of wine that was around $100 (thinking it would be a good wine given the price)
It was HORRIBLE. Tasted like a $10 bottle of wine.

After 25+ mins of waiting for the server (who I am giving the benefit of hoping she was just new & that’s why she was horrible) to hear back from her manager about what we can do about this… at the end, we were pleased it was taken off the bill.

Next onto food… HORRIBLE. We ordered charcuterie- which came with 2, yes I will repeat…2 crostini’s and 1 pretzel stick thing.
Maybe 5 pieces of cheese???
A whole bunch of random veggies & fruits-which included very spoiled & bad. Definitely skip the $40 waste of money on charcuterie.
The garlic breadsticks, looked like something you’d get from Pizza Hut… not worth the hype.

The service was terrible. Again, I hope this was just because she was new possibly? But she was very slow & you could tell she had too much to handle on her plate that night serving.

Overall, I wouldn’t give this a single star.
Such a let down for our girls trip dinner!
