We love ordering from Olios for our boxed lunches! The cookies that come with them are so soft and delicious! The sandwiches are fresh, and always perfect!

Had lunch there with my family and had a good but not great meal. Service is on your own order at the counter and the menu is limited. I was disappointed that at the register I was told that the published price of a sandwich was wrong and was actually $2 higher. Not a big deal but not good. The... More

I love this place. I bring family and friends here anytime we are within a 30 minute drive. They are consistent in serving large portions of very tasty sandwiches, salads, and desserts. I love the drink options as well as the wines. Fresh, fast, and really delicious food in a friendly place! My favorites are the salad with steak and... More

Would never recommend! Staff are rude...not clean. Order wrong both times I went, so I never went back.

Richmond is not the best place for sandwiches. Olio is an exception here. The roast beef is very tender and tasty and made by them. Great bread. Generous portion, relatively speaking. My wife likes their crab cakes. Potato salad and pesto pasta are really good sides. The chocolate cake is excellent and the chocolate chip cookie is surprisingly good. Even... More

We had lunch here today. I had the crabcake sandwich which was great... good ciabatta bread and nice touch of roasted tomatoes. My husband had the fresh salmon sandwich and he liked it very much too. We both had the soup of the day, tomato bisque and it was delicious. I find the atmosphere to be a little lacking.... a... More

My husband's boss is always ordering lunch for the group from here. He has never gotten a meal there that he likes (and he is not picky). He brings home the leftovers for me to sample. The food is not bad but it's not for me. The last sandwich I tried was a Scicilian sandwich. It was spicier then I... More

We walked into the olio in the fan Saturday night at 840p...they were supposed to be open until 9. Evidently they were mostly closed because we were told take out only. Too bad...great sandwiches last time we were there..great service also last time we were there. Next time we are in richmond, we won't be returning. If you are open... More
