Ive been here many times and have ordered the steak and I think it's the best steak i have tasted, the service is exceptional and the food quality is great, I would recommend anyone to go there to experience a fantastic service, I completely disagree with the review below.

I just had the worst dining experience of my life! When I complained about my steak the chef proceeded to bring my plate out and confront me in front of everyone and instead of replacing my steak with a medium rare which is what I asked for. I was served a slab of raw steak burst on the outside. I... More

Come back Mario ! A very disappointing meal last week. From the a la carte - Cheap cut of veal ( or was it fatty stringy pork ) steaks smothered in sauce to hide a fatty portion. Mean on vegetables and an unteresting sweet which was unappetising. If you want a pizza and spaghetti then probably OK but not for... More

Its under new ownership now and not a patch on what it used to be so a long way to go. I don't think the idea of a sit down pizza house will work long term as there is too much competition around. The food we chose from the a la carte menu which although ambitious, lacked finesse or good... More

Visited the restaurant for my birthday this evening. The restaurant was cold and empty at 7.30pm which worried us when we walked in. The staff were friendly. The starter was lovely but the main was bland and we had to send the veal back to be cooked further as it was very bloody! There was no black pepper and some... More

Myself and my fiancé went to La Pergola recently to celebrate our anniversary. When we walked in we were not greeted or taken to a table, so after a couple of minutes of awkwardly standing around the entrance we decided to seat ourselves. The portion sizes were rather small unfortunately, in fact my partners main was so tiny it looked... More

We found the staff friendly and helpful, with a down to earth vibe. The food was wholesome but pretty average. My pasta was slightly undercooked and the overall presentation could have been better. Easy to fix though and they are already doing a lot right. We may be back...

We have always chosen this Restaurant when wanting to eat somewhere special. We enjoy Mario's food - an excellent chef and great host at the end of the evening. We wish him a warm farewell and a happy relaxed retirement. The new ownership, staff, chef and lick of paint has maintained the welcoming atmosphere we have always liked. The menu... More

Had not visited the restaurant since last year and heard it was under new ownership. The decor was much improved and an Italian pizza oven has been installed at the front of the restaurant so in winter it will not be chilly in there as it has been in the past! Food was very good but was expecting more fish... More
