70s throwback

The food here is fine - good quality and fairly tasty. Portions are huge! However; I don't think the menu has changed in 20 (+!) years and the decor and atmosphere are somewhat reminiscent of an old people's care home. Having said that, it's very popular with the older generation so perhaps they... read more

A group of 33 walkers went for a lunchtime meal today and we all really enjoyed the meal. Fantastic service and excellent food as always

Good food well presented. Clean and comfortable but inevitably costly. It baffles me as to why Italian food is so expensive. The ingredients are no more so than any other food stuff. I went here on an early summer's eve on a Tuesday and was pleasantly surprised to see how popular it was. Seemingly very popular with the well-off blue... More

I have not visited for awhile and standards were not as they were. No background music, rather sterile, not full and waiters standing around watching you eat your food. Eventhough it was not busy, our waiter was not very attentive. The food - nothing special, especially for that price. Please see the photo I have attached of King Prawns -... More

We really enjoyed this family run Italian restaurant. The décor is stylish though subdued, with quiet music. We went on a night when there were few people there, but the service was attentive without being suffocating. Sometimes empty places have waiters hovering around as they are bored, and you are out within an hour! The food was quite varied -... More

One of the joys of eating out is discovering new twists on existing themes; an old classic turned on it's head, a deconstructed pudding etc. You won't get that at la meridiana and as for authentic Italian as other reviewers have said, nah, not unless you thinks spag bol is authentic. This is a 70's throw back. The food is... More

We visit here quite often; we have always had excellent food - and a good choice of wines (not overpriced) of which the Italian selection is the most varied, and not seen in the shops. Friendly staff, always efficient. Can recommend!

My husband had been here a few times and I wanted to see how good it was, so he took me for a birthday meal. I was not disappointed. The atmosphere is informal, but with a traditional fine-dining presentation. service is attentive without being intrusive and the food was very good - Italian, but restaurant rather than pizzeria or trattoria.
