Very nice Italian with a more interesting menu than the run-of-the-mill Italian served by staff that really couldnt cope on the night. We would have stayed longer and possibly eaten more but the poor waitresses were run off their feet. Never mind, go on a quiet night for some excellent Italian food

From the moment we walked in we were made to feel at home. Attention to detail and to the customer. The food was delicious and good value. A place to spend the evening and soak up the atmosphere. Very authentic Italian cuisine and beautifully presented.

Grrat value food and a lovely selection to choose from, staff very friendly and attentive, but not one for date night. ..gets very packed and you might have to shout to have a conversation! Wouldnt say it is where you should go for romance or intimacy with your meal!!

Having read the previous 5 star reviews, perhaps my expectations had been set too high. As a starter, I had the figs and goat cheese. It was seriously over cooked. If I wasn't English, I'd have sent it back. It ought to be a great dish. On the other hand, my wife had the calamari and that was excellently crispy... More

We were looking for Italian food and our hotel manager suggested Casalingo. We walked over, and in and were met by the owner working as diligently as the rest of his employees.It was obvious from the moment we entered, that there is no settling for less. They managed to turn a spaghetti Bolognese, into a magical flavorful superb meal, the... More

Attentive staff. Fairly long wait for food, which was okay. Nothing spectacular, considering the price. The one thing I would say is: keep a bit of money back so you can get a kebab on the way home, as the portions are tiny.

My sisters and I came here on a weekend away, and were so happy we did - the service was classically Italian (even though the restaurant was heaving the service was always with a smile!), the food lovely and the atmosphere was great.
