About Us


Olivo restaurant opened in November 1990 specialising in Sardinian cuisine serving the local Belgravia area. Due to Olivo's popularity, in November 1995 owner Mauro Sanna opened a second restaurant, Oliveto, still featuring authentic Sardinian fare but with a slightly more informal slant, including pizzas, reputed to be some of the best in London.

In May 2007 a third restaurant was opened, with the addition of an adjoining shop, Olivino.
Olivomare, with it's award winning interior designed by Sardinian architect Pierluigi Piu, designer of all of the restaurants, opened a new chapter in the Olivo story by serving only seafood, again with a Sardinian influence.
Olivino, the adjoining shop, offers much of the specially imported Sardinian produce used in many of the dishes served in all four restaurants as well as some of the finest Italian and Sardinian wines available in London.

In the wake of the success of Olivomare comes Olivocarne, which opened in August 2012. Olivocarne is a restaurant devoted to all things meat with a menu dedicated to char-grills, pastas, game, offal and more besides.

The latest chapter in the Olivo story comes in the form of Olivogelo, an artisan gelateria which opened in September 2013. Due to the popularity of the in-house, freshly made gelato served in all the Olivo restaurants Olivogelo, just a stone's throw away from Oliveto and Olivocarne is where you will find authentic gelato produced daily often incorporating Sardinian ingredients in a truly original fashion.

Mauro and his long standing team of chefs, headed by Andrea Orru and Marco Melis, look forward to welcoming you to savour the tastes and famed hospitality of Sardinia in the heart of London.
