Squaremeal Review of Olivocarne ?

Part of a mini restaurant empire that spreads its tentacles around the local streets hereabouts, this is Mauro Sanna’s temple to red meat, with pictures of happy sheep looking down from groovy monochrome walls as diners tuck into a Sardinian’s carnivorous dream. To begin, try steak tartare enriched with bottarga and spiked with chilli or some deeply unctuous marrowbone, simply roasted, with a sprinkling of salt and some crostini to cut through the richness. There are excellent handmade pastas too (malloreddus ‘shells’ served with homemade Sardinian-style sausage is proper comfort food), or you can head straight for the house speciality – richly flavoursome porceddu (suckling pig), slow-roasted and served with potatoes. Finish with ice cream (made down the road at Olivo’s own gelataria) or choose some cheese from their deli. The wine list revels in its Sardinian roots, but travels the whole of the Italian peninsula.

My husband booked this restaurant as a special treat for my birthday. When we arrived we were ignored at first and not led to our table straight away. The dining room has recently been refurbished I believe and was comfortable and glamourous. The staff were helpful and willing but not trained to the standard that you would expect in such a restaurant. The starter of mozzerella wrapped in ham was boring. My main course of roast suckling pig was ok but my husbands roast grouse was raw in the middle...

Most modern restaurants are fairly bland in appearance, not so for the Olivo group. The decoration is bold and striking. The food in this new meat orientated restaurant is terrific and the service is excellent. What we really need is for the Olivo group to combine Olivocarne with Olivomare – now that would be a treat!
