First class Italian food

We ate here one evening and were lucky to get a table without prior booking. The food was excellent, fresh, well prepared and presented, and the service welcoming and prompt. One of the best Itailian meals I have had in this country.

Had a lovely lunch for the wife's 50th Birthday. Lucky to have got a table as the restaurant was full on a Tuesday lunch time. After eating the food I can fully understand why. The quality and quantity of the food was just right and the flavours amazing. This is somewhere we will be going back to together and with... More

Visited Oggi for the first time last week with my husband and mother,who was celebrating her birthday.

My boyfriend took me to oggi couple of months ago but I keep thinking about how lovely it was. The restaurant is small but cozy, food is great and service is excellent. I especially like the cannoli dessert! It was beautiful

I can fully recommend this restaurant. It was my first visit and we were not disappointed. It was very busy but the service was good, the menu and specials were interesting and we were very pleased with our choice. The king prawn starter I will definitely order again it was excellent.

After eating the food, we were amazed people weren't queuing outside to get in. Fish dishes were superb, pasta was fresh and well-seasoned, and we bought a case of the prosecco on the train home. Service was attentive without being overbearing, and a really nice atmosphere. We'll be back.

The mixed grilled fish on the specials board - sea bass, salmon, swordfish, king prawn and scallop - was one of the best mains I've ever had.
