We ate there last night and were seriously underwhelmed. Firstly the waiting staff seemed surprised that we might want to order food or drinks so that wasn't good start. They had one waitress whose job seemed to be floating around the restaurant telling someone else to come and take order. Most of the time the staff seemed to be chatting... More

Went with three business colleagues - was nice they all enjoyed it however my meal was not the best the fillet steak was chewy and poor quality. Tasted cheap yet very expensive and sides were average.

We visited La Trattoria after a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. La Trattoria is an authentic Italian restaurant which is a rare treat with so many bland chain italians around. I had calamari to start in a spicy tomato sauce with large croutons which was gorgeous and my partner had a mozzarella salad. For mains we... More

Its a shame we wont be returning to this itslian as the pizza's are very good but its badly let down by the terrible attitude of staff/management? As we arrived the little italian man with the big attitude waved his arm saying "sit where you like". Order taken without a word from some other miserable man & food arrived.....sorry ,... More

We have been here a few times for lunch, but I've forgotten to review. This is a very traditional style Italian restaurant with Italian scenes and move stars etc on the wall. I have had pizzas and pasta here as have only visited at lunch-time (they do all the menu all day). On this occasion we both had a pizza... More

Ate here last night on a very busy Saturday evening when thankfully they squeezed us in. This is a busy place, and we say no "rude staff" as quoted by the last reviewer, quite the opposite in fact. They were attentive, and coping with a big demand - the place really was packed. Service was quick and efficient even so,... More
