The food was not up to their normal standard . I have visited the ones in Swansea and Shrewsbury but the cooks in the Blackpool need re training. So disappointed .

We visited a little over a year ago and wrote a review about how excellent this restaurant was. Well unfortunately they let themselves down this time round. We had a night booked at the Travelodge and were quite excited to head to F&B's as we had an excellent all round experience last time. We were seated next to the door... More

Took two hours to get our meal. Understaffed and some staff were rude about their colleagues in front of me and my family. The desserts sat for so long before the waitress picked then up to bring them to the kids that all of the ice cream had melted. As other people have stated the drinks are overpriced and could...

I had something from the lunchtime menu with work colleagues........£9.50 for a burger and Pepsi. This is a meal deal although for Blackpool this is expensive. All paid individually and some left early. However the remaining few were then advised there was a 10 percent service charge and had to pay £10 extra to leave. Needless to say we will... More

Good authentic Italian atmosphere I think in here the staff are excellent. Except maybe the barman that we happened to get that day who was... ermm... due a training session maybe. Very nice restaurant though definitely worth a visit. Nice open kitchen a d very nice food.

Went for lunch and felt the service and food were very good. Table service was friendly and food was very enjoyable. The place was clean too. My only moan is the price of the food and drink. I feel this needs to be looked at in order to attract more customers. I don't agree with the majority of the negative... More

Won't go in for a big review this time. Service was average, not overly friendly. Food was average. Not hot, just warm. Drinks are ridiculously expensive. £4:25 for a small bottle of Magners Cider. Surrounding are pleasant. They have had little improvement over the years. There's a specials menu with one course for £9:95 which is not cheap for the... More
