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.

Went with the in laws and it is not the first time that we have been here we were and yet again very impressed with the whole experience from start to finish. Good at tentative service, nice surroundings and most importantly very good food.

A colleague suggested we take our business guest to lunch at Cini and we were not disappointed. Very nice food, good value for money and friendly staff who I learned some Italian from (Como si dice "tasty"?, I asked, "Grazie, it's "Buono" was the waitress's reply. I also learnt that 'tiramisu' means 'pick me up', which it did). Cini is... More

The lunch and early evening menu is fantastic value but more importantly the food is excellent. In the evening the food is stunning and wine amazing. Great service too. Well worth a visit.
