I'm a 23 year old female and my partner 35. We attended without a booking for a spontaneous date night and we were seated immediately at a fantastic table by the window. Ambience was lovely, festive but not loud and the place felt romantic. Excellent decor and lit candles on each table. The waitress was a delightful young American who... More

Great pizzas and pasta dishes, substantial flavoursome and reasonably priced (note Perth is expensive).

If you are doing a Paradiso movie it is an obvious choice as next door and a discount if you have your movie tickets. Plenty to choose from. Always think the wine is overpriced but that's a 2016 Perth problem. The food is delicious and well priced.

We've walked past Oliver's so often, but last night, decided to pop in - and we were delighted. The service was prompt and accommodating, there's a good wine list, and a menu offering a vast range. The food was sensational - Liver & Bacon (my husband's choice) is not an easy one to perfect - but it was spot on... More

We decided to go here after glowing reviews online and from friends recommendations. Unfortunately we must have picked a bad night. The slow roasted pork wasn't warm then it sat into of even colder parsnip mash. I nearly asked the girl to heat it up but felt bad to. My husbands pizza was good. But the biggest let down was...

Wednesday special is the bomb, 15 dollars pizza for sharing. They are not dodgy making the specials smaller.... totally legit, tasty, woodfired, and delicious pizza , one of the best we ever had in Perth.

Not only pizza, which are done really well, but all their other offerings are just as tasty and always freshly made. This place is great for just a snack (pre or post movies just next door), and also for a full sit-down meal. Very friendly staff - nicely multi-cultural too, in the heart of Perth's multi-cultural heartland.

Olivers is in the same building as the Cinema Paradiso. We’ve been attending a film festival and it’s a great place to have dinner before or after the show. The staff are friendly, prompt, efficient and professional. I dropped a fork on the floor and within seconds the waitperson appeared with a replacement. You’ll be surprised how quickly they can...
