Giotto is precisely what you expect - decent food, efficiently served, and in good location with a well-decorated theme. The pizzas and pasta dishes are superb, and the service was near-faultless, with waitresses and waiters walking around, refilling, clearing, and offering extras. Overall, a pretty good place, for a pretty good (but not special) meal. My one gripe - no-one... More

Table was ready on time ,our orders were taken very quickly and food arrived without delay ,even though it was a... More

Friendly clean restaurant with fast service and lovely food. They even catered to my special diet with no fuss and no problem which is not often the case when we eat in restaurants. We can highly recommend it. Good value for money too.

We hadn't booked and the restaurant was busy but we waited at the bar for a table which only took a few minutes. Took a while for our food order to be taken but the food itself arrived quickly. It was worth the wait, the starters and mains were both very good. It was busy so maybe they just need... More

We ate early to take advantage of early diner offer - choice of set pasta or pizza for £6.95 worth booking in advance as they get busy. Reasonable choice in the offer, but once you add on starters and drinks (which were pricey) bill ticks up quite quickly. Rosemary and sea salt garlic bread was amazing. Nice food _ a... More

Very popular place, without reservation, you can't find a table for yourself. Yes, outlook and decoration is nice, service is good but food is average.

All the food was delicious. We had the goats cheese starter and the deep fried mixed seafood (I don't think there is anything left in the sea!) My lasagne was possibly the best I've ever had and the calzone was massive.

We enjoyed a very nice romantic night with good food and a brilliant bustling atmosphere However..... The cost of £24.95 is a little on the expensive side for a steak and the chicken my wife had at £18.95 was again a little on the expensive side there was no balance between the meat and sauce you could tell the chicken...

The service was quite OK and the food, even though we just had a pizza and salad, was quite good, but the place had no atmosphere. The owner/manager seemed to be down or bleak and could not raise a smile nor an expression on his face and the same mannerisms were portrayed in most of the other staff. When you... More
