Italian mission effort to set up this place. Interesting, encouraging story. I enjoyed the pasta, and walked over for breakfast the next morning.

This is a very interesting restaurant. It is part of a wider program for helping troubled youth in the Livingstone region, which in itself, is a cause well worth supporting. However, when the food is this good, there is no excuse not to go. My wife had the crocodile spaghetti, very exotic, and enjoyed it immensely. I had the ravioli... More

Read about this place and wanted to try it - having been in Zambia for 10 days and mainly eaten at either home or hotels in Northern Chingola. How inspirational to find an Italian restaurant which gives a large proportion of its income to the needy and uses its facilities to train young people to be productive and learn how... More

We went here for dinner and really enjoyed our meal. I follow a gluten free diet so brought my own pasta and they were happy to cook this for me. There were very few gluten free options otherwise. My friend had a pizza and it was delicious. The portions are huge and they are happy to pack up the leftovers... More

Olga's Project offers really great Italian food (wood fired Pizza oven, delicious Pasta) at a fair price and great quality. All profits go to a youth charity organisation, which is very good... We loved their food!

We went to Olga's for dinner as a family with 4 adults and 3 kids. Food was excellent, the best on the whole trip. Everything was so tasty and fresh, we were very impressed. We can really agree with the other five star reviews.

We had lunch at Olga’s Italian restaurant whilst exploring the Victoria Falls from both Zimbabwe and Zambia. The restaurant was begun by the family of an Italian woman who loved Zambia. When she died they had it built as a self help project with the money raised enabling educational development for disadvantaged young people. There was an interesting menu but... More
