Authentic Italian

Truly authentic Italian food with an atmosphere to match. An attentive, personal service coupled with a love and genuine knowledge of the food that they serve. We have eaten here as a couple, as a family and with wider groups of friends. Fantastic.

Just came back from a brilliant meal at La Banca. Staff attentive, helpful and welcoming. Calamari starter was excellent, batter very crispy and the squid cooked perfectly. I had chicken wrapped in pancetta and two other diners had lamb shank cooked in red wine. All three meals had wonderful flavours and received rave reviews from each of us. Weren't drinking... More

Four of us had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant last Saturday, this was our first visit and I have to say we were not disappointed.

Husband and I visited last night as a special treat and it was absolutely lovely! We only live in kings norton but had been reluctant to come here as it's a bit pricey, but it really is worth it! We walked so saved money on taxis anyway!!! Staters and mains were beautiful - I had the pea and pancetta tart... More

The food was absolutely divine. The lasagne was luscious and I loved the pulled pork in it! The tiramisu was the best I have ever tasted without a doubt! The layout and decor of the restaurant is also perfect! I will definitely be coming back!

Visited this restaurant on a cold and snowy evening so it was quieter than I expect it woultd normally be but even so the atmosphere was warm and friendly. We were with our adopted parents aged 88 and 91 and they really enjoyed the experience. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they even cooked a wonderful risotto... More
