The only true Italian restaurant in Elounda

Olio Restaurant Pizzeria is located on the picturesque little port in the graphic village of Elounda. In a location with an extraordinary view, we have created since 1990 our restaurant.

In a beautiful place with big verandas, we can offer you home made pizzas cooked in a wood-fired oven, original tasties from the Italian cuisine and delicious dishes that combine the traditional Cretan cuisine with a modern tasty perception.

I welcome you to join us and experience our unique flavors,

    Excellent taste and value

    Visited Olio for Dinner, found the menu refreshing. I ordered the fresh salmon and pasta which was so tasty with generous portion. Excellent service and reasonably priced.

    A nice change of Menu from all the Greek based restaurants

    Best pizza we've had in a long time

    We went for Olio because of the authentic pizza oven and it didn't disappoint. Gorgeous huge hand made thin base pizzas, we had a prosciutto and rocket and a spicy diablo with a tom and mozzarella salad - all delicious!

    Def worth a visit

    Great Italian

    We visited Olio twice during our one week stay in Elounda. [..] The house wine is very well priced and very nice. The staff are very friendly and polite and the overall price very reasonable.

    All in all - highly recommended if you fancy a change from Greek food
