Only heard about the 3 course for £10 deal yesterday and so was keen to try it out! I had slight reservations as it's such a good deal, surely the food wouldn't be as good as usual?! Wrong. The food was perfect!!! I had the salt and pepper chicken pancakes and I think it's possibly the nicest starter I've ever... More

Before the main party at the weekend we went for a family meal - we'd already been to the Crosby Fat Italian which was superb, so since Ormskirk was nearer for us we thought we'd give it a go. Cannot fault anything - service was friendly, attentive, and the meals were simply fabulous. After a bad experience on holiday in... More

Having eaten at this restaurant in July and enjoyed the experience, we returned for a family celebration on Sunday. The food was good on the whole (the fillet steaks looked good but my chicken was overcooked). The vegetable portions were too small and we were not asked if we would like any extras when our order was taken. The desserts... More

Visited tonight with my Wife, the place was very busy considering it was mid week. We were seen to as soon as we walked in the door and seated straight away. We both chose from the 3 courses for £15 each menu and each course was served very quickly, but not too quick. All staff who dealt with us were... More

We had wandered around Ormskirk trying to find somewhere to eat that we fancied and decided to go back to the Fat Italian which we had seen on the way in to Ormskirk. On entering it seemed really attractive, clean and very busy but they had managed to reserve us a table about 1 hour earlier. The food was very... More

Visited this restaurant on Sunday afternoon after it being recommended by a friend, when we arrived the staff were lovely and seated us quickly, I was amazed at the variety on a £10 menu - when you pay that little for three courses your expectations are never high. The food really was delicious and the presentation made all the difference,... More

We were 18 people so we booked 2 days in advance, but I think it's best to book anyway because although it was a Wednesday evening the Fat Italian was really busy. My Sole starter was lovely and the veggie pasta dish was a hearty treat - no room for a pudding. Everyone enjoyed their food, from a 2 year... More

My wife and I went for a post work meal at the fat Italian in Ormskirk. We arrived early Tuesday evening but the restaurant filled up really quickly. They offered us a Tuesday menu option which was 3 courses for £10, which made me sceptical as you don't really expect much for a tenner. The choice was surprisingly varied with... More
