Ristorante Olivelli information

Ristorante Olivelli is a chain of Sicilian restaurants serving a wide range of authentic, regional dishes including homemade pizza and pasta.

Ranked #3726 of 5241 restaurants in London
Part of the Olivelli group
"The Olivelli name has its roots in the distinctive Sicilian food culture.
Rita and Enrico Olivelli opened their Bloomsbury restaurant in the '30s – a home-from-home for students at nearby drama school RADA as well as famous London theatre actors of the day. Legendary performers such as Mae West and Bob Hope also dropped by whenever they were in town.
Sicilian-born brothers Giovanni and Salvatore Salamone bought the restaurant in 1993 – the first of their select chain across the capital which includes Mayfair and Waterloo venues and two cafés, Caffè Paradiso, in Bloomsbury and Tower Bridge.
Olivelli is defined by its buzzy, contemporary personality but the Salamones have preserved two key ingredients from the past: a big-hearted welcome and fair-priced, quality food which includes homemade pasta and pizza. Only the freshest ingredients and sustainably-sourced fish and meat from local suppliers are used in the authentic regional Italian and Sicilian dishes."

Ristorante Olivelli reviews



By Mike M.

visited here on Easter Monday 1st April while in London for a few days. On that particular night, they were unfortunate enough to have a problem with the plumbing in the toilets, but this was explained to us at the door before they even attempted to seat 4 of us. The manner in which we were clearly told of the problem and dealt with so courteously by a pretty young Greek girl impressed us, so we stayed. We are glad we did.The restaurant filled up very quickly and the overall ambiance was fine. The food was tasty and well prepared and delivered promptly.There was plenty of variety on the menu and everybody @ the table was able to get something that suited their palate. The whole meal was complimented by a superb Amarone, even if it was a little expensive. Cannot fault anything and will be back on our next trip to London.
