Great restaurant

Good food and nice atmosphere. The menu has good choice. Recommend the garlic mushrooms to start. Pizzas are really good value and the Dolci with zabaglione centre is just awesome.

Had a lovely meal at this restaurant on Sat 23 May 2015. Food was very good and nicely presented. Staff were very friendly, polite & attentive. The young 16 yr old waiter was delightfully charming (he recognised us from the sister restaurant Fratellis). Great food, lovely ambience and delightful young waiter

We were wowed by the food. Came here for lunch on a sunny Saturday. Found bottarga on the menu! Very difficult to find anywhere, even in Italy. Ordered the octopus salad (which we shared) and spaghetti with bottarga and vongole. Gail is sensitive to gluten, and luckily they have gluten-free pasta. The octopus to start was pretty good -- Gail... More

Years since we have been to this Italian as we no longer live in Newcastle. Food was superb! Garlic bread on thin pizza base was hot and crisp, very tasty. I had everyone's favourite, lasagne, which was great, husband has sea bass which he rated 11/10, just can't get better than that. We will return when we next visit the... More

My wife and I had a lovely meal at Sabatini's. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. We had the special two course special at £11.95, well worth it. We will definitely return in the near future

Polite and friendly staff, prosseco was absolutely disgusting, the food was decent and the music was appalling. Who plays timber in a restaurant? We couldn't get out of there quick enough! Such a disappointment

Four of us arrived without reservations at 6.45 on a Saturday evening in the middle of a town buzzing with people out for a good time. The restaurateur looked at us when we said we didn't have a reservation and I thought for a moment he was going to do the haughty maitre d routine. Instead he politely asked if... More

Went to Sabatini after a walk with 3 friends, arrived 8.15pm on Thursday for a quick bite to eat - restaurant was quite busy but welcomed warmly and seated promptly by friendly front of house staff. Spent 5-10 minutes chatting while drinks order taken, and delivered, then order was taken in good time. We all went for pizza which was... More

I went back to Sabatinis for a solo meal anticipating a great meal. Been before and was wowed by the quality. After a good start of home made minestrone soup the main course of grilled swordfish had to be sent back for a second grill as it was raw! The accompanying salad was just a handful of tired leaves with... More
