Stopped by for lunch on Saturday, I'm really going to have to get a new phone which will let me go onto Tripadvisor and see what the Local Area has to offer and how it's rated. We made the mistake of going in for lunch when we went into Hexham and to be Honest, it was Very Average, the service... More

Vercelli has been a family favourite since it opened. However, this last visit and the previous one have been very disappointing. The quality of the food has gone downhill and the prices have gone up. Salad starter was over sauced and bland and the pasta main was tasteless. Would be reluctant to give it another chance.

Wonderful food, excellent service, wine and conversation flowed well! Brilliant set menu for a work Christmas meal with plenty of choice. Would definitely recommend 😊🎄🍷

Food of a high order and the meat and fish sharing platter an absolute delight. Pizzas huge , specials looked very appealing and so a return visit in due course needed to sample them! Service excellent too and a very warm welcoming atmosphere.

My boyfriend and I decided to visit vercellis , from the outside with a cocktail styled bar this looked like a place with potential , however as we approached the restaurant area we stood there for a while as staff looked at us in a non friendly almost as if we were in the way of their work. We were... More

I decided to host my sisters pre-baby meal at Vercelli and I couldn't have wished for a better place to do it. There were 12 girls giggling and laughing for 2 hours over a 3 course meal and the restaurant made it special. The chef prepared a special menu put together with my sisters taste in mind (she works in... More

I've eaten at Vercelli a few times and it's always good. The quality doesn't differ if it's happy hour or a busy Saturday night. Food: veg pizza each time - fresh toppings, nice amount of cheese (not too claggy), puffy stonebaked dough. Drinks: reasonably priced. Service: always friendly, attentive, staff happy to make menu substitutions/get stuff warmed. Atmosphere: pleasant decor,... More

Vile little women that alienates customers cannot take criticism, of which there is a lot!! Food is mediocre at best, arrogant staff and little if any atmosphere.......you would assume in a small town with many places to eat this obnoxious woman would make an effort!!!! Oh and honest reviews are removed!!! My advice....the county is across the road with good... More

We visited the restaurant and found the food to be over priced and lacking in taste, we even got an added dish of Rocket lettuce salad that we paid an extra £5 for. I regularly eat at Bella Italia which knocks spots off this restaurant. The only good part of the visit was the service as it was prompt and... More
