Definately one for good honest "home cooking-type" experience. I also enjoyed the wit and humour of the waitress there. It's worth going just to hear her. It's a one woman comedy show,

A quiet Wednesday dinner for two in this delightful restaurant. Steaks to die for, the best since the last one here. La Pergola food is superb, hardly a surprise with such an experienced chef. Mario cooks for the love of cooking. We love coming here.

I never usually write reviews but this needed to be said. Our starters and main were bland, good italian food is simple but very tasty this is not. Tomato sauces were just tinned tomatoes heated up with no seasoning, herbs or flavour. Cauliflower cheese tasted of plaster and they even badly cooked the vegetables! We went based on previous reviews... More

We have just had the worst meal that we have ever had the misfortune to experience. From the moment we walked in the door the waitress was surly and rude!!! Our starters were ok, but then the mains appeared. My chicken was ok and the sauce was tasty. My partners lamb shank was appalling, the tiniest bit of meat on... More

Evening out with our good friends at very short notice, met at the Pickering Phipps and ventured along the Welly Road. For whatever reason we have looked in this restaurant and opted not to try it. Our friends had been here before and loved it, so we decided to give it a whirl. It was a midweek evening and very... More

Really friendly, very traditional (perhaps a little old fashioned), italian that perhaps won't win any awards but serves food that is well cooked and tasty with professional service with a smile and character. Some of the saucing is heavy and old fashioned, but if you stick to the fresh daily specials they are "fresh" and usually very well cooked.

Having heard great reviews of La Pergola we decided to try it and were delighted! We had an amazing meal comparable to cuisine straight from Italy and the staff were brilliant. It was great value for money and the wine went down a treat, we will definitely be back.

Service with an attitude. Food tasted like it was microwaved. Expensive. Could have cooked better at home.
