Very good food,

We nipped in for a quick meal, service was good, food was excellent, proper home made chips, would definitely return, the only downside was the manager seemed to be doing all the work while staff hung about! He needs to step back and let them do some of the work that's what they are paid for! But... read more

Called in on a mid-week evening and received a warm welcome and shown to a nice table by the windows. Staff were helpful and attentive without being over the top. Food was first class and we were both very complimentary. The bill was very reasonable for two mains, two deserts and cocktails £41, what more can you ask, if only... More

I enjoyed our visit here, food was nice and the building is beautiful. Service was quick but I didn't feel any warmth or care. We ordered £30 steaks but didn't think the service stood up to the food.

We booked in for a works Christmas meal with only a weeks notice. They were very accommodating compared to other restaurants we had tried. We pre-ordered our food from the Italian Christmas Menu. Food was served quickly despite the restaurant being full. A tasty meal and great atmosphere.

My wife and I visited Sabatini's for the first time last week and we were so impressed we went back again the following evening. The food was excellent and the staff very attentive. At the prices an excellent good quality meal which made the evening overall very good value.

The service was excellent every single member of staff I found to be polite but very friendly at the same time. Food was amazing, proper Italian food. I am going to start going here at least once a month I was that... More

Me and my husband came here for NYE celebrations, and luckily got booked in a couple of days before because of the lovely guy on the phone. It was just us 2, we wanted a nice meal on the Quayside We certainly weren't disappointed. The location of Sabatini is perfect for the fireworks. On arrival the table was decorated with... More

Sabatini is a little out of the way (about a ten minute walk from the train station) but worth the trek for dinner. The restaurant serves traditional Italian dishes with a strong Sicilian influence. The food is good but not outstanding. I did enjoy the fried zucchini as an appetizer though it was a nit greasy and both my wife... More
