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.

It had been a while since I had been here and I was pleasantly surprised when that fact was commented on, nicely, by the person who welcomed us and showed us to a table, offering us a number of tables to chose from which I rather like. Too often a restaurant decides where you would like to sit even though... More

Terrible food and terrible service. They call it an Italian, may be because one of the waiters is Italian. Food was bland and not seasoned. Pasta was not homemade, packet stuff. Bread was shop stuff, again not homemade. The bill was summarised without a line item breakdown. Ask for a breakdown and they get offended. Decor, service and food is... More

Some friends and I had a birthday meal here one evening recently. As always, the service was excellent, the atmosphere was good for a Tuesday and the restaurant was immaculately presented, clean and bright, and the decor is very Italian. The menu was varied and not overly expensive and the set menu was very good value for money. I had... More

We went for Mothers Day, the restaurant wasn't overly packed which meant the food and service was still good. Great variety on the set menu and the food was outstanding. Will definitely visit again.

Met here with a group and they don't appear to have changed their menu for the last 20 odd years! The service is good and friendly as most of the staff have been there for as long as the restaurant has been running.

Always assured of a warm welcome, elegant surroundings, and waiting staff who are always attentive and cheerful. Good choice of meals on the menu although we normally go for the excellent value set menu. If we are dining out together or with friends this is always our first choice.
