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

As a family we eat at this lovely restaurant once a week and sometimes more than that. It’s always busy, no matter what time we book for (or just turn up in the hope they can squeeze us in) there are plenty of customers in, which is a sign of a great restaurant. The staff are brilliant – all switched... More

Fat Italian ormskirk is my local 'nice' restaurant and has always been excellent if a little pricey. But sooo worth it- normally. Booked for this evening anticipating a wonderful meal as usual. Music blaring so asked if it could be toned down a bit as we couldn't talk to each other for the noise- front of house look put out... More

Stumbled upon this lovely restaurant after a day trip in Liverpool. The food was amazing! I loved the Spanish/ Italian mix. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. Also, the set menu made the price very reasonable. We visited at 4:30 expecting the place to be quite but were surprised to find a pretty full restaurant. One of the nicest... More

The attention to detail is always second to none, nothing is too much trouble and simply outstanding. The food is excellent and beautifully presented and served to perfection, you taste all the flavours! 100% first class service throughout and see you... More

Lovely food, great service, lovely atmosphere and clean surroundings! Highly recommend the lasagne as it's pretty much perfect but think they need to work on the onion rings as they're a bit to batter-y. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be returning soon!

Ate here with a group of friends. Lovely food, good attentive service. Enjoyed sharing a jug of sangria with the meal. Would definitely recommend.

Last minute booking for a birthday meal for my daughter. Advised that the table was booked again later and despite us arriving late, we were served promptly without feeling rushed. Everyone enjoyed their pizza and pasta. No time for pudding unfortunately. Friendly service. Decent food. Good value. Happily eat there again.
