Based on a previous visit when we were more than pleased, turned up again at 6.00p.m. expecting the same welcome and good fare. Not so this time - only two other diners in the place and we again explained that we would be away by 7.30p.m, just as before - expecting that we could have a reasonable table in comfort... More

Really busy on Saturday, but we were able to get a table for 9:30 pm. Typical Italian menu, perhaps main course choice could be a bit bigger (no liver and just the one veal choice). Great service, we were not rushed even though the last ones in the place. Highly recommend the carpaccio, delicious!

The person who recommended Biancos to us said that this is under the same ownership as Amici across the road. Not certain if this is so, but it seems likely: there are one or two similarities e.g. the same kind of wine cooler table attachment; the same mint and amaretto biscuit offering with the bill etc. Both restaurants are good...

Turned up without reservation and got a table in this small but busy Italian. We had a 3 course meal that was delicious and well presented. Reasonably priced for the quality of food. Good service. Would definitely return.

We called in at Biancos on a Thursday office and were pleased that they found a table for 3 although we had not booked. Food was superb and service impeccable. Chose meals from the specials board and were really happy with what we chose. Would definitely recommend

Having eaten in many restaurants I can say this has been one of the better ones, the ingredients, the service and the place are a little gem that should be available in every town! The selection on the menu and blackboards was great something for everyone and more, the price we all found reasonable especially when you consider other restaurants... More

Group of six of us went here for a friends birthday. Service was excellent as was the food, definitely prefer this more traditional Italian restaurant to the "Pasta/Pizza" restaurant. Excellent menu variety, would highly recommend the grilled prawns and peeled shrimps in garlic butter. Will definitely be going back and highly recommend.

This was a lovely little Italian. The portion sizes were huge and very tasty. Could not finish the starter or the main course.
