What more to say - nothing surprising or fancy about the food but it is just cooked so well and is always tasty and fresh. Plus things like their own really nice liver pate and an excellent quality antipasti plate. Every lunch time is a special low price for most of the standard dishes. Their puddings are good too -...

enjoy a lovely dinner here with some friends. As an Italophile I am willing to try all Italian restaurants. This place is always packed so I booked a table - glad I did as it was packed! The atmosphere is lively and friendly, the staff efficient and polite. The menu selection is vast but not too fussy and really affordable.... More

I recently visited L'Italiana for the first time and what a pleasant experience. The food was of a high standard and very reasonably priced with generous portions. Extremely pleased with the service. Although the restaurant was quite busy I really liked the ambience and it was nice to see family groups with young children made very welcome. I must add... More

I try to avoid Italian food when I am abroad but I have to be honest...pizza here is pretty good! The only con of this place is that you need to book as it is always crowded !!

This is a typical Italian restaurant where you can rely on getting good food at a reasonable price and being served by efficient waiters. It was very busy on the night we visited and I cannot imagine trying to hold a serious conversation as the noise level was very high but the atmosphere was great and the selection of food... More

Have been coming here for four years, especially lunch time with the £5.95 deal. Although the chef changed a couple of years ago, high standards have been maintained and the restaurant consistently delivers authentic Italian food with great flavour. Portion sizes are good and the drinks prices are very reasonable. Do not waste your time visiting pseudo chains like Jamie's... More

I went to this restaurant today with 5 others and we were not disappointed. The service was brilliant (despite the restaurant being packed at 2.30 pm when we arrived) and the food was lovely. The pizzas are massive, so much so that 3 of us that ordered one could only manage to eat half of one! The side order of... More

I dont usually like going out for Italian Food. I figure you can make a good Spaghetti Carbonara or Bolognese at home! However, meeting friends who wanted to try L'italiana we ventured in and I must say it was really very good. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was heaving but the service was prompt and friendly. The... More
