Olive Garden located in St Kilda, a new addition to the neighbourhood. They offers an authentic Italian cuisine for dine in, take aways, caterings and functions. Olive Garden pride them self as a venue which changes colours which means they constantly changing, upgrading and evolving to maintain at it's best. Reachable by public transport as well as It's not that hard to find parking in the evening.

The outdoor seating is very very nice, you could listen to the music played by the restaurant or talking and laughing with your friend loud enough because it seems that the outdoor seating area is spacious so you wont disturb other patrons and the pedestrian as well due to the distance gap between the seating and where pedestrians are walking. However the indoor seating are a is a bit dark. We were greeted by the sangria, it's highly suitable for the day, its a sunny day and it is just perfect to drink this juicy yet fresh and makes you chilled for an outdoor evening gathering with your friends.

Appetiser antipasti; Homemade Italian veal & pork meat balls, Salumi - cured cold meats, Italian Prosciutto, Mini garlic prawn and Grissini - oven baked bread sticks ($27). The meatballs was very very nice, lots of spices in one bite and the bread stick goes very well with the meatballs. But the garlic prawn have nothing special, the overall presentation was presentable.

Tandoori Pizza - chicken, red onions, peppers, yoghurt dressing ($19.5). The chicken was cooked very well and feel like eating and indian tandoori chicken, just on a pizza. It is a heavy kind of pizza to have for a big lunch or dinner but It is actually one of the food blogger favourite pizza he said. 

Salami Pizza - salami, peppers, olive, oregano, buffalo, mozzarella, evoo ($18.5). This is the first time I had an after taste that last long after a bite of this salami pizza, well done. It is very and different to most salami pizza I had.

Hawaiian Pizza - virgin ham, pineapple, buffalo, mozarella, evoo ($18.5). The virgin ham was excellent. The pineapple was fresh and it's served warm. It has a fruity taste and yet cheesy pizza, unexpectedly great combination. 

Prawn Pizza with Green Beans. The green beans burst in mouth and filled with juicy combination of prawn veggies and meat. This would be my favourite pizza and dish of the day. The great combination include the hot chilli capsicum and prawn.

Dessert Pizza with Fig and vanilla ice cream was a great ending to the event. I quite enjoy the experience of tasting various kind of pizza. I went home with a full belly and a happy warm feeling just like the pizza.
