Venue Testimonials

10000000/10 !!!! Amazing people, amazing service and an amazing venue. My partner and I recently had our wedding at Oliva Social after dining a few times. It was everything we hoped for and more. They managed to completely transform the space from our ceremony to reception. They were extremely hospitable and answered every query and concern we had. The food is phenomenal, and the drinks go down an absolute treat.

Perfect place to celebrate my birthday. Had the upstairs mezzanine and set menu. All was perfect. Food was spot on and great value for money. Pizzas were amazing and great cocktails. Would highly recommend for any birthday or event. Service from staff was 10/10.

Had our wedding at Oliva Social and it was amazing!! Giordana, Carl, Adam and the team could not have been more helpful. From start to finish, organising the whole day and night, they took care of everything. Honestly can't recommend them enough. Nothing was ever too much, and the whole night went smoothly. Our guests were raving about the food and drinks, perfect night had by all!!
