Olivo Bistro & Bakery was rebranded from Ren Gastronome, previously located at Paya Lebar. Now it is at the Aperia Mall at Kallang, Level 2.
The interior design of the bistro resembles of the Mediterranean Style.
Olivo Bistro is pretty hi-tech. They provide a tablet at each table for diners to place their own order. They offer wide range of selection; pastas, pizza, sandwiches, burgers, soup, salad, dessert and etc. They serve a wide range of alcoholic drinks too.
If you are dinning during weekdays’ lunch, you may want to take note of the daily promotion. On each day, when you order food from the designated category, you are entitled to a free soup. But you need to remember to add it into your order. Once you select your food, you are directed to the next page, scroll down to look for “Promo Soup” and add it into your order. And once you are done, remember to proceed to order summary, to click “Confirm” so that your order is now on its way to the kitchen.
Besides the Weekdays’ lunch promo, there are also some other on-going promotions such as the Happy Hour promo and so on.
My promo soup was the Tomato Soup. It was a creamy, smooth and tangy tomato soup.
Since I was there on a Thursday, promotion was for Pasta and Pizza, I ordered a Pesto Pasta with add-on Prawns. You can select from the list of add on. I find the dish, especially the prawns a little too salty. But what I like is the pine nuts that were added to the pasta. The nuts not only provided the crunch, the nuttiness blended very well with the pesto sauce.
I hardly end my meal without a dessert and I ordered the Triple Chocolate Cake. The three layers, top of white chocolate mousse, middle of bitter sweet chocolate mousse and bottom of dark crunch is certainly a rich cake. It is best to savour the three layers together.
Olivo Bistro didn’t have my favourite Cappuccino so I went for Latte. The coffee was a low acidity, medium to full body with nutty and chocolaty flavour.
The pricing at the Olivo Bistro was pretty reasonably with pretty decent food, coffee and desserts and the service was friendly and warm. I might pop by again to try other items.
