Me and my family first dined here in September and we have fallen in love with the place. We have booked for Christmas Eve! 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

We... More

Our first visit. We booked a table. The place was very busy. The place was very nicely decorated. We went on a Tuesday 3 courses for £10. The staff were very quick to serve and very helpful. The food was good. Nice and clean.

Have visited several times and always enjoyed a vibrant well managed venue. We have eaten here at all levels of choice and cannot faulted the Three Course offer on Tuesday's. Stephen the manager is most welcoming and his experience shows. Back soon......

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

Me and my sister had just received our first salaried pay cheque and decided to treat our mum and dad to a meal. After hearing and reading the amazing reviews about the fat Italian, we had to go and investigate! As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a smile and shown to our table. Throughout the night...

We visited the Fat Italian as a group of 20. We were seated straight away and orders were taken very efficiently. The pizzas was delicious and home made, and only cost £6 on the 'Happy hour' offer. I ordered chocolate fudge cake for dessert and it was a little on the dry side. Nevertheless, the customer service and the price... More
