My husband and I called for an Italian meal on Sunday......lovely clean restaurant, nice decor, excellent service, friendly staff and delicious food. Don't think you'd be disappointed eating here! Atmophere average but didn't expect anything else on a Sunday.

The food was decent enough but the menu very limited and unimaginative. The food was unadorned and the sides you had to order were nothing more than single boiled vegetables, not dishes. You had to order each individually and would end up with too much if you had several, which is needed. I had saute potatoes that were actually hard... More

This place is missing some thing. I've been all over Italy and it really doesn't compare. To be fair it doesn't really compete with Italian chains. It's over priced for the food. There's nothing wrong with the food it just wasn't special. On the other hand the wine was good. Not much to choose from either. The restaurant was dead... More

We ordered a bottle of wine which took an age to arrive and when it... More

Family of 6 went for lunch on fathers day, the menu was interesting, usually find all Italians taste the same standard but this was stand out and the service was exceptional from start to finish, one of the best waiters ever had. Will be going back!

After dining recenntly at La Banca, a friend asked me if i enjoyed the meal. I found it very difficult to say yes or no. I think like the curate's egg it was good in parts! One thing that affected my judgement was the appalling habit of quoting a price and then charging extra for very uninteresting vegetables. If i... More

This is a review about the cooking school at La Banca.....Great night cooking risotto and lovely tarragon chicken with lovely owner of la banca. Nice pace, small group, great value and got to take yummy food home! Dishes magically washed and dried nd wine provided to help with the cooking!
