Booked a table for a catch up with friends. It was half five and good job we went out early as it was already full. Lovely busy atmosphere. Fabulous menu choice. We ended up with the three courses offer and were amazed - you really could not fault anything. The food was delicious - generous portion sizes and very well... More

Love this place. The staff are friendly, attentive and professional. Great atmosphere and gorgeous food. We had the Chef special pizza, sweet potatoe fries and mixed salad, it was perfection! A great place for a special occasion or a chilled night.

The team also made them a birthday surprise and all sang happy birthday to them both. Well Recommended and great to see a local restaurant delivering... More

Good food, good service, good wine, good ambience and all at a great price. All the ingredients for a very good night out. We visited The Fat Italian on the back of the previous, positive Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. It was our first visit; I'm sure we will be back.

We love this restaurant and the food is lovely. Good menu choice, and has good specials as well. Only issue for me is the staff are too overbearing. Been a few times and is always like this. You feel like your night is about them, and not just being able to relax and chat to friends over a nice meal.... More

We have been to this restaurant several times now, and everything about it from the decor, the staff, the food, the drink, the reasonable prices, the atmosphere are as near perfect as you can get. One thing only ruins the experience, and that is the 'background music'. We have to shout over the music to be heard, which is not... More
