A lovely pre-match meal

stopped here with my dad and my brother before going to watch the game. Staff friendly, pizzas lovely and my brothers pasta was amazing. Really reasonably priced for good food! Only downside was a lack of atmosphere as we were the only ones in the restaurant, although this was probably due to the... read more

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

My husband and I eat in Ticino's regularly. The staff are always so friendly and accomodating. It is fresh hearty tasty Italian food at a low bargain price! I love their Risotto Ticino's.

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

Unexpected visit here after the restaurant we booked was closed. We had garlic mushrooms and garlic bread with cheese, both were lovely. We then had spaghetti Bolognese and the ticinos pasta, it was so nice. Really tasty and great value for money. I had a bottle of house white, which was again great value and tasty. I'd definitely recommend a... More
