Food was nice but very small portions and quite expensive for what you get would be perfect if portions were bigger

Attended the Fat Italian with my family this evening after being recommended the 'three courses for £10' offer. After the soup starter we were all in high spirits! The friendly waiter (young tanned, scouse lad), made the evening a much more pleasurable experience! With his light hearted humour and friendly manor we will be sure to come back and see... More

We visited The Fat Italian for the first time a couple of Sunday's ago - we had the set 3 courses for £10 - lots of lovely things to choose from and fabulous value for money! My family and I had a lovely afternoon in gorgeous, comfortable surroundings. We will definitely be back.

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
