Never disappointed

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... read 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

Went as a last minute meal and was seated with only a little wait. Had an interesting choice of sangria, we had strawberry flavour, it was good. Nice food and great meal deals on pizza/pasta for £6 a dish. The a la carte menu is really good and I will definitely go back to try more.

We had lunch here on Sunday. £10 for 3 courses. The food was good and well worth the price paid. The sweet choice was a little unusual with flaming sambuca and limoncello being 2 of the choices but I have to say that if your full, and you could be, as the portions are a good size, a coffee or...

Best meal we've had for years here a few weeks back. Couple of very minor complaints but both looking forward to getting back there. The wife's a veggie and is normally given very uninteresting food whilst eating out but she had a lovely meal aswell.

Came last night with my partner for tea, not knowing it was a new menu. We had mushroom pepperpot and salt and pepper duck for starters, and meat feast pizza and pork steak for main. The food was amazing and the service was excellent, we felt really looked after and genuinely welcomed. We will be back!
