The best night out in a long while

Took a family friend who was visiting for their birthday. Place was not that busy but crazy as usual. Good food, which is a little over priced but very generous portions and a really enjoyable night mainly down to the friendliness of the staff

Went here for an evening meal on a Sunday night. The restaurant was empty apart from a large group who appeared to be having a celebration. We were seated right by the kitchen. We sat for almost 15 minutes before our drink orders were taken. We waited another 15 minutes, still no drinks. Then, along came an erratic looking gentleman... More

The waiter was so amusing and full of character. The waitress was ever so helpful. The food was excellent especially the puddings. It had a real vibe about it and asked if we wanted extra drinks and the menu had plenty for all desires.

We have been visiting the Pizza House for 9 years and it will always be one of my favourite restaurants! The food never, ever disappoints. Huge, Italian portions with the freshest ingredients and amazing flavour. We had one of our best meals ever there last night! They've changed the olives and they now serve huge, fresh olives with the most... More

Now the restaurant is more up for a Sunday roast than a good old Italian, Food a bit of a let down, not in amount I will add but in taste, Price not bad for what you get if it's lot's you want. Sorry to say my last visit, will now look for a new Italian that has good food... More

Visited late last night as we had driven past a few times and thought it looked worth a visit. As critical customers we are not easy to please. Starter of mixed seafood antipasto and we were pleasantly surprised. Fish was fresh and tasty, although I would say slightly expensive for portion size. Mains of risotto and chicken cacciatore .

We live within walking distance but this is the first time we have been to this restaurant but I'm sure it won't be the last. Really enjoyed it, I had the scallops to start and then a delicious pizza which I took half home and had it the next night! Look forward to returning soon :)

I absolutely love this restaurant. It feels like how I would imagine a family run Italian restaurant would be like. The food is great. The service slow. The waiters hilarious and and friendly. Yes you will spend up to 4 hours here as you drink chat and eat whilst waiting for a waiter or your food but it doesn't matter... More

We have been coming here for some time and rated it amongst our favorite restaurants. Unfortunately that has now changed. The welcome and the staff were still as lovely and quirky but the food was not good. We kicked off with garlic prawns which lacked seasoning and were over priced £11.95..They also came on a rather odd mixed salad. Our... More
