Superb! Incredible service, impeccable food!

What an amazing little place we have here. Attended on Sunday 23 August 2015 in a party of 9. Everything was perfect, the food was incredible and for the price! Wow!

Ok I'll start with the things I didn't like ... On arrival we were told that our table wasn't ready (we may have been about 10 - 15 minutes early), and so were asked to wait at the bar and order drinks ... except there was no-one serving at the bar. There were plenty of staff that seemed otherwise occupied... More

I have been here a good few times now and i think the food is absolutely delicious! Staff are very friendly, prices are reasonable and the place is very cosy and nice, especially for a couple on a date. But, that is where i find it an issue. Ive noticed, whenever I have been in to Fat Italian for a... More

What a cracking little restaurant this is. Our great-nephew was in the local hospital because he chose to arrive two months early and we ate here because we were visiting. The menu provides excellent choice and the 3-course deal for an early bird on Sunday was stunning value. As in most places who do this beware of drink prices but... More

I just love this restaurant and have never been disappointed. Over the years I have visited many times, sometimes just for lunch or dinner as a couple or small group and on other occasions as part of a large group, up to 20 of us sometimes, and the standard and service have always remained consistently high. This is my favourite... More

Have always enjoyed the fat Italian hence number of visits as we live in Ormskirk. Great value with 3 courses for £10. Food stunning and hot and all came at the same time. Two little niggles. It was very noisey and had to raise voices to be heard around the table and having to ask 3 members of staff for... More

Had a lovely meal in the Fat Italian really good food couldn't fault it. Service was fine, one little hiccup with a waiter forgetting some sauce but nothing major. My only complaint was the noise level I could hardly have a conversation without having to shout myself! Apart from that I would go again as there is so much on... More

Booked a table on "Ladies Day" at the Grand National and was expecting to be sat down and hurried out to make room for another booking. Couldn't have been more wrong, service as always was absolutely fantastic, staff friendly and attentive. The food was as always, superb. I quite happily recommend this place to other people knowing full well they... More

We ate there as a family for my grandson's 13th birthday. Fortunately we had booked as It was Tuesday evening, 3 course meal for £10, so extremely busy. The menu had plenty of choice, & the food served was hot & delicious. The staff were particularly friendly & helpful. The only negative comment is that there is a good choice... More
