Went with 3 work friends and were all delighted with 3 courses for £10 menu. Not only was this extensive and offered excellent value but portions were so generous that the fact there was only cinnamon ice cream or tea /coffee/limoncello for dessert didn't matter. Having a variety of dishes on our table inc pate, chicken wraps and mushrooms for... More

I like this place. Nice atmosphere, very good and attentive service. Had the duck salad to start, ordered pink and was overlooked and chewy. I didn't complain so that's my problem, I was given plenty of opportunity to do so. Had the lamb for main, and more than made up for the starter. Beautifully cooked, tender and delicious. I do...

But I couldn't wait that long and gave introduced this outstanding restaurant to my boyfriend. He was overwhelmed with the decor and atmosphere (which he normally wouldn't comment on). The food was fantastic, the service was... More

Visited the Fat Italian off the cuff on a Sunday evening. They have a special price menu Sunday and Monday on pizza and pasta. This usually means either the quality or quantity is less than you'd normally expect. Not in this case, we both chose chicken fiesta pasta. it was fantastic, with a little fiery kick in the sauce. We... More

First visit and enjoyed the lovely decor, great value 3 courses for a tenner Tuesday. Staff very friendly and food portions great. Fresh quality food with a good choice..... attentive service and pleasing presentation. Just close the door to the kitchen as it distracts from the lovely atmosphere when the table faces the corridor. Will definitely return and recommend to... More
