We had a really lovely meal at this Italian restaurant. True value for money with an extensive menu and friendly service.

I don't recommend this place to any of my friends. The food is average at best. The service is terrible and the price is at least twice what it should be. Your time and money would be better spent anywhere else.

We have had many very good meals in this restaurant over the years and have always felt it justified the slightly higher price. Our meal last night suggest otherwise. It was a Saturday night so the restaurant was busy but this is surely predictable. The main ingredient of the food was ok but the quantity and selection of vegetables was... More

This restaurant certainly divides opinion, but I have to say the menu was good, the service was prompt and efficient, the prices were very reasonable, perfect for a pre theatre meal as the theatre is opposite - so what's not to like?

Impromptu visit, looked like traditional food, so we opted for it over the chain restaurant opposite and were not disappointed. There were six of us, so we were not sure if they were able to accommodate us but they shuffled things around and made room. my colleagues loved the house white and it was very reasonably priced. The portion sizes... More

Don't bother with this place seriously! We turned up (my nieces and I) got seated and waited 30 minutes to be asked for our choices. Every time I asked they said they were coming!. We were about to leave but at this time not sure where else we would be eating.. We ordered food over 1 hour ago... Still didn't... More

A few of us needed a meal after a long days work, struggled to find anywhere until we came across Zafferelli. Mario the owner could not have been better, no trouble and him and his staff looked after us until we were ready to leave. Pasta with Salmon (fuseli, you chose) was really good. Couple of us had a steak... More

Neither my partner or I can remember having a worse restaurant meal. We just popped in for a quick bite, shared cheesy garlic bread and a Napoli pizza. The garlic bread was stale and didn't taste of anything other than salt, and the cheese was bland and rubbery. Even worse was the main. I've honestly had better supermarket bought frozen... More
