Nice little Italian - hidden little gem really

Came across tho splice early last year, and went back again later the same year. Very nice. The service was good, as was the food. Last time we went there they put us on a table in the bar area, which we weren't that keen on to be honest, preferring the main restaurant seating area, which... read more

Arrived late Friday nite to Windermere so just wanted to grab something quick but decent quality also. Saw that Giotto did Pizza takeaway so placed an order for pizza and a pesto/garlic bread. Garlic bread was cracking full of flavour but the pizza was pretty disappointing for £9. Should have been bigger, could have been bigger. Left us wondering if... More

We initially came here when we couldn't find other restaurants that we fancied, what a good choice we made!! Beautiful food in a gorgeous restaurant with attentive staff. We booked a table on our next visit as brought friends with us, they loved it too!

Came here during a hot summers night and it was packed out the door. We sat outside on the terrace, nice menu choice, lovely pizzas, service could have been better but I understand it was a busy night. Would return when next in the area.

Nice food, nice restaurant. Very reasonably priced with nice staff. Shame the atmosphere was lacking since there was only one other couple in it.

There were four of us and we all had different starters and main courses. The food was ok but compared to other Italian restaurants we have been some of it was... More

We also went on a Saturday evening and were far from impressed by the staff or food. The staff were not your usual friendly, happy enthusiastic Italian staff but cold and abrupt. The food was very under seasoned. A poor evening taken from the early bird menu,only glad we did not pat full price for this experience, as regular Lakes... More

We went to this restaurant without booking and they managed to sneak us in. I had a 4 seasons pizza which consists of onions , ham , mushrooms , and peppers I think in each quarter. The pepperoni pizza was also really good. The pizza had a great flavour with the fresh garlic on each pizza , and was served... More

Booked last minute as we were staying in Windermere. Lovely welcoming staff and nice atmosphere. We shared a tomato garlic bread which was nice but needed a bit more flavour. Both of our main meals were spot on and we will go back for sure.
