Sat In Cinis now having had a fantastic meal. Great service. Cannot find a fault. Waiters attentive and polite. We will return (after bank loan) but worth it.

I've visited Cini a number of times recently, mainly for lunches and it is difficult to fault. The food is always very good and reasonably priced. The staff are always friendly and attentive, providing great service. The only real 'gripe' would be that when busy, as it often is, it can tend to seem quite noisy. Maybe due to the... More

Visited for the first time as I was staying in a room upstairs. Service was excellent, however, I felt that the food was bland ( spaghetti carbonara). The service at breakfast was also excellent as was the breakfast. The choice is very good. If I hadn't eaten the previous evening Cini would have received a grading of 4.

I visited again this restaurant after a few years and tried the nine course tatser menu with my partner: a truly unforgettable experience! The chef created a magic journey of flavours for us! Service is as always impeccable and the cuisine is indeed excellent. Highly recommended!

From the moment we arrived the whole eating experience was a joy with just the right amount of professional and relaxed attention from the staff. Food and wine wax to the highest quality. Shame I do not live nearer as I would be back more often.

Not sure it there has been a change of management here but the service is much better now. Called in on a Thursday as a group of four and got a table. Well kept draft beers and a really nice atmosphere in the restaurant which is immaculately presented with its linen covered table cloths etc. Service was very good and... More

2nd time we have been to CINI we keep it as a special place for my wife's birthday. The meal was authentically italian and the atmosphere is always welcoming with a real buzz. Great food and wine with excellent service a real gem hidden away in Enderby.

Just visited cini last night for the first time. The whole experience was a disaster from start to finish. No one to greet us on arrival then we were kept waiting for our table. The main problem was the 'taster menu' we had the 7 course menu priced at £49 each. When the first '' course'' arrived it consisted of... More

In response to your comments left on 30th November, I would like to clarify our position here. Your table was booked at 21.30 yet you arrived at 20.30, I personally seated you in our lounge area and took your drinks order. At this point of the evening I had 70 customers dining in the restaurant and had you arrived at... More

Walked in on a Friday evening without booking, I had Zuppeta Di Mare, it was superb, the others with me had Calzone, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Service was excellent, I would recommend you try this place if you are in the area.

I eat in very many restaurants and this one is as good as any. I eat here once every couple of weeks for lunch, although they started asking me to book, and, as I don't often plan lunches in advance I will probably stop visiting. Beware if you are fussy about steak. I like my fillet a little more well... More
