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... read 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

Friday night, last minute impulse meal out. Helpful staff and great atmosphere, table 2 in the alcove, great table for two. We chose the Oggi Seafood pasta and Salmon pasta followed by the best Tiramasu I've ever tasted

From the moment we stepped in we knew that we were going to have a wonderful experience. The staff welcomes us with olives and italian bread and we liked the decor of the restaurant. The cutlery and choice of table cloth and the food was amazing. We thought we would give tirsamu a try and this was absolutely the best... More

The food was fantastic with a great choice for either those who prefer a more traditional Italian pasta or meat dish, or those who prefer something different. We chose from the specials board, which is predominantly fish, and were spoilt for choice. The Hake and Sea Bass were cooked... More
