We chose OGGI for a pre-concert meal after reading reviews and were not disappointed. Everything was just perfect - the welcome and friendly service, the delicious olives, starters of grilled goat's cheese with roasted peppers and asparagus with parmesan and butter, fish mains (of which more later), good desserts (tiramisu and cassata) and nice white falanghina wine. But the fish... More

Went for a meal to celebrate our anniversary. We were impressed by the prompt but never overbearing service. The food was delicious and we both had three courses. The restaurant was busy on a Saturday evening so better to book. We will definitely be back!

Went for an early supper with family who are locals.. Excellent choice on the menu and strong on fish dishes , look at the board for daily dishes. Had delicious prawns and then hake . All food beautifully presented. Service attentive and friendly. Booking seems essential as by 7.30 it was full and on a Tuesday! Highly recommended.

This is my second review for Oggi - I reviewed it about three years ago, but have been back many times since. It's been consistently good, with friendly service. Most recently went for lunch, and I had the tortellini with beef and mushrooms and my partner had the lasagne - both delicious, and with a good wine list. They seem... More

I've been a regular visitor to Oggi for some time and I'm pretty much a brand advocate of the restaurant. We attended on Saturday night for my birthday. As usual, the setting was intimate, with a good demographic of guests. Our service has always been second to none, but as it was my birthday, the staff made me feel special.... More

Visited OGGI for my mums birthday with family. The food was just superb. There were 10 of us and all the meals came out at the same time, hot and scrummy. Those who had the steaks said they were perfectly cooked and the best they've tasted. Good menu choice and the specials board included a couple of fish dishes, I... More
