Poor service, food...meh!

I am always suspicious of the 'freshness' of ingredients in a restaurant where the extensive menu is printed on wipe-clean plastic laminate. If they were busy, I could understand but barely a third full for Sunday lunch in such am attractive location.....? All the seafood in the seafood salad... read more

My wife and I last visited O Sole Mio on 20th July '14 when we were very impressed by the food, the service and the price. Here we are on 30th August '15 with our son, a professional hotelier, (with a famous well known group} but what a change, Service lousy, food portions much smaller and not well presented and,...

I love Italian food and this place is good. I had gluten free carbonara and it was nicely done and tasty - not something you get often with gluten free food!! The kids were catered for - smaller portions and all dishes were tasty and well cooked. The place was clean and the staff were nice. Definitely would be back.

We have eaten in this restaurant a few times and the food has been reasonable, albeit overpriced. We had Sunday lunch there yesterday and it was tasteless and definitely not up to standard. We asked for extra roast potatoes, they did not arrive, we also asked for another glass of wine, that did not arrive either. The restaurant was not... More

Wow; I've not reviewed here before?? Apologies. My husband and I have been here several times. Firstly, it's better in summer than winter. A very slight downside is that in trying to 'English proof' the outside area for our weather it feels almost like being inside (which is good and bad really). So, the food: Calzone!! Just have it!

Local customers but not been for a while as disappointed on last visit. The setting and decor is good, staff are good, the food sadly is still average and definitely not worth the money being average quality, particularly the starters are small and well over priced.

This was our first visit and we were looking forward to trying authentic Italian dishes. Sadly, the fare on offer was Italian, but only in name. Having been to other Italian restaurants where the menu contained regional dishes, it was disappointing to see all the usual suspects on the menu. It reminded me of Indian restaurants of a few years... More
