Italian Grille & Bar

Mike & Jennifer Rende

"There is absolutely no substitute for the best. Good food cannot be made of inferior ingredients masked with high flavor. It is true thrift to use the best ingredients available and to waste nothing." - James Beard

Our Story


Born out of our love of fine wines and delicious food, The Stuffed Olive Italian Grille and Bar has become the premiere location in Waxhaw, NC.


Mike was raised in an Italian kitchen, working side by side with his parents in their restaurant in Rome, NY. He owned his own restaurant in Florida and Rendini's (right here in Waxhaw!) for eighteen years. 


You will often see us working side by side, just as Mike's parents used to do, for so many years.  


The Stuffed Olive offers the dining experience you can see and taste for yourself. We are dedicated to offering only the finest and freshest foods. We are truly family owned, with family pride. We invite you to enjoy our restaurant.
