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

I went here for a business dinner - it was extremely quiet with only three tables occupied. The service was excellent (maybe even a bit over the top). I struggled with the menu as this is neither a top Italian restaurant nor a Pizzeria. The portions are quite small especially given the price, but the food was quite good. What... More

Just got in from a fantastic impromptu meal at this family owned restaurant. Despite our jeans and T-shirts from a day out in London, we were made to feel welcome in this restaurant that is a touch more formal in the evenings than in the day time. Our waiter (Andrea) was really great with us as well as our daughters,... More

We went in November 2011 as a friend who has another restaurant recommended the place. The food was ok and service fine at the start. After a while though the owner started shouting at the staff in Italian (unaware that I was Italian and understood what he was saying), calling ladies in the room rude names and ordering the terrified...

Cini in Enderby is a gem of a restaurant. Serving contemporary Italian food the menu is varied, yet the dishes are sublime. Great food in a warm cosy atmosphere and in stylish surroundings.
