Visited Wednesday just gone and enjoyed 2 X ribeye steaks with chips and a bottle of red wine for £25. It was delicious and cooked to perfection which was medium. The chips provided were home made and we opted for a peppercorn sauce (£1 extra) which again was delicious. A little hidden gem in Pelaw, we have also had Sunday lunch from there before which was really tasty and great value. Well worth a visit

Today we were able to phone up and order Sunday lunch, it was delivered in good time, still hot and absolutely delicious. The delivery man dropped it off whilst adhering to social distancing which is SO IMPORTANT right now, I respect that SO much!! It was great value for money and there was so much food the four of us are stuffed. I will 100% be using them again and definitely recommend them to all my family and friends.

I have visited previously but have held back lately due to local restrictions etc, well, I wish I hadn’t waited ! Visited this evening for the steak night special and was astounded by the value, service, orginsiation and most importantly the quality of the food. 2 perfectly cooked steaks with seasoned chips and what I can only describe as the best side dish of vegetables I have ever had made for a perfect and affordable evening. The waitress ( Gemma I think ) was attentive throughout and made me and my wife feel very welcome. We will definitely be returning very soon !

I went particularly to have a steak after looking at pictures online all pics showed large thick juicy steaks however mine was small and like a pancake even though they charge £18 for it along with the order came chips and side salad. I complained and the managers comment was I did mention it looked small however it didn't stop them serving it to me. But what got me the most is that she took the steak away but then she went to take the salad and chips saying they were part of the meal baring in mind id been to work for 10 hours and was hungry I said leave them and I will pay for them. Gobsmacked anyone other place would have given them for free. I ended up having some of my daughters food. Won't be returning

first of all the steaks we use are pre cut and weighed by our butcher the photo you mentioned was for a 20oz tomahawk. you ordered a 10oz ribeye so yes it did look small by comparison, and im gobsmacked she had the audacity to take it away too after you refused a replacement and stated your not paying for it especially after such a long day at work the only blessing here is your daughters was big enough for both of you

We are regulars at this restaurant because we love the food, the atmosphere and the fabulous staff. We recently have been having the Sunday dinners delivered too and the quality is amazing, we highly recommend anyone to try this place and they will leave feeling like a part of the family.. if you get the chance pop into the bar downstairs, live bands often playing, with unbeatable staff and atmosphere ,always fun and friendly.

We ordered food as a treat on Valentine’s weekend, it’s not the first time we’ve ordered food to be delivered and we’ve had consistently great service from start to finish each time. I can’t recommend highly enough! The food is great value and tastes fantastic, especially the prawns... cracking team from taking our order, cooking to delivery - can’t fault these guys.

We first visited L 'Oliva Verde when it opened almost 2 years ago and have been going regularly ever since (much to my waistline's dislike!). Even on our first visit then we were welcomed like friends and found the food to be absolutely delicious. The restaurant is upstairs inside The Pelaw Inn pub which is also fantastic and you can sit and have a drink downstairs if you turn up early, or have another downstairs after your meal. We have also brought a few friends who were equally delighted, especially with how they catered to my friend's dietary requirements, gluten and dairy intolerance. They were also brilliant with their young daughter who is a bit of a fussy eater, getting down on her level and speaking directly to her to find out what she wanted and how she wanted it cooked. We have tried their pizza, pasta, steak, chicken, fish, Sunday lunch, tapas and Happy Hour and have never been disappointed. Since the pandemic, they have kept a great service running for their guests with a collection or delivery service, all contact free. Again, we have had a wide variety of items from the menu and the quality and service is to the same high standard. If you haven't ordered from here then I highly recommend you do, and pay a visit once restrictions are fully lifted and things get back to 'normal'. We are lucky to live a short walk from the restaurant but would travel to get there if we lived further away, it's worth it!

I had been craving a ‘proper’ pizza during lock down and heard that you were open for collection/delivery for our neighbours who regularly visit the restaurant. Ordered a pepperoni pizza, a calzone and some calamari and WOW it did not disappoint. I cannot wait until we visit the restaurant now.

Prior to covid19 lockdown we quite often ate at L Oliva Verde and it was always top notch. Since lockdown they have gone up another level. We have ordered food for delivery and collection and with each the restaurant have done it brilliantly with hygiene and social distancing. We’ve had Sunday lunch almost every week and it is always super tasty, piping hot, and you always struggle to clear your plate. 10 out of 10. We also decided to try the evening pizza menu, we had three pizzas , a calzone, a chicken Kiev, and a goats cheese and pepper. They were all absolutely top notch, if you love pizza this is the place to go ! L Oliva Verde is a brilliant local Italian restaurant, ran by lovely people who always provide a great service and amazing food.

Would have been a 5* review but for the desserts. We went there as a family with 2 kids and can’t fault the service or main meals. There was a suitable choice for kids - which were the usual chicken, fish fingers etc. My wife and I opted for the steak night deal (Weds) for which you get 2 x Rib-eye steaks, with either chips, veg or salad and a bottle of wine for £30. The main meals were very nice with the steaks cooked to perfection and lovely chips. I chose to add a Dolcelatte sauce which was very nice. The chosen wine was also very nice and the kids meals were nice too. Service was fantastic and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The only fault I have (and the reason it drops from a 5 to 3*) is the desserts. All of us chose the Sticky Toffee Pudding. When they came, they were more like a syrup sponge pudding that had been cooked in the microwave, mine had a hard over microwaved base and the “italian” vanilla ice cream looked more like it was a Wall’s vanilla than Italian. Overall as the final course of our meal, the desserts left us feeling let down rather than satisfied. If you plan on going for a main meal then “Yes” do it, but be wary of the desserts. I have no experience of the other desserts, but the sticky toffee is disappointing.

Hi Kevin first off we are glad you enjoyed your mains wine & service and we will have to hold our hands up for the desserts Maddi who normally prepares all the desserts was off for a few days holiday & Kittie who looked after you had not been properly trained ( our fault ) as she has only been with us for a few days like the rest of the hospitality industry we are struggling to hire experienced staff, however i can assure you we do not sell Walls ice cream and im 100% positive if you had of brought it to our attention on the night instead of giving us a 3 star review on here we would of made sure you left eager to give us the original 5 star review regards Graham

I have visited the restaurant on numerous occasions and it NEVER disappoints. Based in Pelaw on the outskirts of Gateshead the quality of food and service delivered is more akin to a city centre restaurant in Newcastle ! Will continue to visit for both the food and the service.....& I highly recommend the steak ! During the lockdown I was pleased to see that they also offered a delivery service and again it was of the same quality ! ( had fish & chips twice already !) Can’t wait to visit again !

Great food as always and superb, friendly service. Always a pleasure. What makes it even better is their perseverance throughout lockdown and offering a collection or delivery service. Even on collections, social distancing is maintained and personal safety adhered to, not to mention the food is terrific. Many thanks to all.

We ordered an early Father’s Day treat for my husband and it did not disappoint!!! I highly recommend the Surf and Turf. It was a quality piece of steak cooked exactly as ordered, huge prawns in a delicious sauce, perfect Diane sauce and chunky chips. My husband was over the moon. Thank you so much. The photo does not do it justice.

Tried the pollo mare e Monte last night, beautifully presented even in a take out carton, huge portion and went perfect with the home made chunky chips, I recommend to anyone. Huge chicken breast, tiger prawns and asparagus and loads of other goodies in their with a side for just £13.95. Well impressed. Keep up the good work. 😃
