first evening meal after an afternoon on the road.

Had starter portion of lasagne - didn't look much but was quite filling! Then had the special salmon - lovely and quite a good portion served with beans and mange tout with a few bits of potato. Also extremely filling. I could barely squeeze in the piece of tiramasu for dessert. Very nicely... read more

I can't remember eating a tastier pizza! My boyfriend and I couldn't decide which toppings we'd prefer so we opted to share two different pizzas. The waitress made sure that they were cut into quarters so that we could split them easily, which was very nice. I couldn't finish mine, but it was so yummy that they boxed up the... More

We enjoyed our meal at Giottos, particularly the shared seafood platter for starters, which was excellent. I found the piazza a little overseasoned for my likening and my wifes tortellini was a little rich but don't let that put you off - we left little on the plate. Overall a very pleasant dining experience.

We ate the bruschetta to start - simple but well prepared and well seasoned. Great pizzas for both of us; thin and crispy freshly made dough, perfect sauce and toppings, then an amazing chocolate fondant cake for pudding. A really good Rioja to drink. Lovely staff, room enough to feel intimate, although the place was full. Will definitely return -... More

Great food & service, very reasonable prices and desserts to die for! A good idea to book in advance, to avoid disappointment.

I'm starting to make a habit of visiting Giotto's when I'm in Windermere. The restaurant is always packed, which is a good sign and creates a nice atmosphere. As long as your not expecting anything thing more than good Italian food with purposeful service, then this is the place for you. The staff are always very pleasant but, sadly, have... More
