Starters of king garlic prawns and parmigiana di melenzane, both made with passion. Mains of crab ravioli and fusilli, pancetta e pomodorini. The most exquisite pasta I ve ever... More

My friend and I always have our annual Christmas Business Lunch at The Leatherne Bottel, and when Julia was in charge of the kitchen and front of house it was always impeccable. I ordered a Bellini at the bar and it overflowed the glass which was ok except that I had to ask for a cloth to wipe my glass;... More

Visited with a group of friends last weekend and it turned out to be a very special occasion. The tuna was succulent, sea bass a great tasting very special dish, the deserts (and I think we tasted them all ) absolutely wonderful. The service by Antonio and his team was very attentive and we were made to feel very special.... More

We chose Rossini's to celebrate my husband's birthday and had a fantastic and memorable lunch. This restaurant is a hidden gem sitting on the riverside with spectacular views. The team led by Tony is committed to serving beautiful food of exceptional quality and this combined with highly professional service makes for a perfect restaurant. This is our third visit and...

We are still talking days later about the delicious food and excellent service. Having grown up with Italian food and having lived in Italy, the food was as good if not better than the best I have experienced anywhere. Ambience is truly fun and the service is impeccable. Great selection of dishes and wines. Food was truly authentic and seafood... More

Having eaten in many an Italian over the years, including a good selection in Sorrento and along the Amalfi Coast, it is really refreshing to find a restaurant here that could so easily be 'there'. The food was exceptional (and there are future plans to actually start infusing home grown herbs etc), it's not often these days one finds restaurants... More

Handing the Bottel over to an existing Italian restaurant was an interesting venture and it is an improvement. Service on the night we went was okay and the food was too - not exceptional, but okay, just as if Rossini's Maitre d' and chef had provided comprehensive lists on what to do and what not to do. What was missing... More
