Eating experience

The atmosphere at Giotto's is very nice. It helps to relax and eat in comfort. I recommend booking as it is very popular and we always found it busy. Staff is helpful and cordial and the food quality is very good.

We had the best meal ever here. I can't believe we lived in the area for 40 years and never came here! We had to move away and come back for a visit to eat here. We were with friends and they rang up 1.5 hours before and we got a table by an open window.....Bliss. It was 31 deg... More

So we sat at the bar and within 30 mins we were seated and the food we had was great with the staff attentive but not too much so. Would reccomend a... More

We were not really in the mood for a big meal and we had a small pasta and Fritos misto, both sensational. Definitely worth a visit, great ambience and service, not too large or noisy. Great value an authentic Italian experience.

Whilst on holiday in Windemere we were looking for different places to eat each night and we stumbled on Giotto as it is tucked down a side street. We had no reservation but we got a table quite easily (mid week) Food was good and arrived promptly, house red is nice and the service was OK but not outstanding

While in Windermere we booked this place for my birthday dinner, OMG it was fantastic, the welcome and greeting was lovely we had a great little seat outside. Our waitress was brilliant we tried a red and I didn't like it, she was really nice and just offered us a different one which was fantastic. We ordered bruchetta to share... More

We had booked on the bank holiday weekend but they had no record of our reservation, told us they was no chance of a table and that they didn't accept children even though I had mentioned our child when booking and there were children in then. I can't comment on the food but the front of house need some serious... More

29:5:15 This was our final meal of our Windermere stay. Giotto was recommended by Anthony at Willowsmere. We called on spec early doors. A table for two was no problem. Staff very attentive, service was swift and our meals were delicious. Good value for money. Yes I would eat here again and recommend to others.

I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. We were on holiday in Windermere. We had not booked but were given a table, however, never saw a smile or had a friendly word while we were there. Were given the impression that they just wanted to get us in and out as soon as possible. No one asked if the... More
