Third time I've visited, a real hidden gem in the Bigg Market. The bolognese pizza is to die for, as well as the delicious pastas they have to offer too. Shared a half pizza and pasta with my friend and we each got a soft drink and it was under £20, absolute bargain for such good food and big portions.... More

Had a fab late lunch. Ordered a garlic bread and got a really generous portion. Absolutely enjoyed it. Ate a Ticino Tagiatelli which was really hot and meaty to my liking. Left really satisfied. Very swift service. Could do with an extra member of staff for waiting to take the pressure off one guy - somebody else may not appreciate... More

Went to Ticinos today with family and friends for a lovely pizza and pasta. The staff and owner were friendly as ever and the standard of the food was excellent. Great place for a meal in town, highly recommend.

You get what you pay for. No frills just cheap tasty food with a great host. Try the 2 meals and wine special for around £25. Great value. One visit you will return again.

I was the only customer that evening and so the whole experience was over in 45 min (starters and main course). Staff was efficient but not really friendly. The food was just about ok, huge quantities but very "greasy" I will not go back
