A superb family birthday Sunday lunch. The menu was varied and the food was very tasty. The service was excellent, staff were welcoming, attentive and entertaining. The chef came to our table to greet us and receive our comments on the delicious dishes. We particularly enjoyed the spontaneous surprise chorus of 'happy birthday' sung in Italian and birthday cake with... More

I ate here with friends in 2014. I asked for a simple chicken salad... Nothing hard about that! When it came, it was a small chicken leg on a bed of rocket, nothing else but they charged me £16 for it!! I could have done it myself for a couple of pound!! Would not recommend this place and will not... More

We would like to respond to the review you placed - you have stated that you had a chicken leg salad, we are confused as we only ever serve Chicken Supremes or Chicken Fillets at La Banca. Also if we had a request for a salad it would comprise of - baby leaf lettuce, grilled artichokes, olives, sun dried tomatoes,... More

We had the privilege of being treated to La Banca as a New Years treat, and what a treat it was. We are from North Wales and as always went to Birmingham for our New Year blow out of outstanding food and company. None of the party had been to the restaurant before so it was a bit of an... More

I went to La Banca with my partner and two friends just before Christmas. The restaurant was full when we arrived and I was a bit concerned that this might spoil our evening, but I needn't have worried. The food was excellent, the staff were knowledgeable about the menu and we had a great evening. Despite the fact that they... More

Excellent food & service but not the cheapest. Worth it though for a special occasion. Waitress was a little off though if I had to find a negative

Having seen the Trip Advisor reviews we visited La Banca in Cotteridge, Birmingham on a quiet Saturday lunchtime. As befits a fine old bank building the contemporary decor of the establishment exudes quality and the staff are welcoming and friendly. Everything on the menu sounded wonderful! I ordered the 'Parmigiana di Melenzane' a baked aubergine dish (I also added a... More

It was my partners 50th birthday on Sunday but as we'd celebrated in on the Saturday we weren't looking for anything especially flash to do on Sunday. As La Banca is less than 2 miles from where we live it and was open on Sundays it looked like the perfect choice. The restaurant was pretty empty when we arrived at... More

10 of us had superb service for Sunday lunch, most with set menu. Food prepared beautifully, meat tender, vegetables glazed and perfectly cooked. Drinks arrived rapidly when ordered during the meal. 11 month old baby was very well catered for with very clean high chair. Everyone was happy with meal and excellent service. Can't wait to return.

An excellent dining experience with friendly staff and wonderful food. Essential to book as it gets very busy, especially at weekends. Authentic Itallian food, beautifully cooked and presented. The waiting on staff are very friendly and efficient. In addition, they run cookery courses upstairs and you can learn to prepare Itallian food, which you can then take home.
