Arrived to a rather empty restaurant which was surprising considering it was a Friday night. We were promptly seated but had to wait over 20 minutes to be offered drinks, in fact I had to ask the waiter to come over to take our order. 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!

We had a meal here for my mums birthday as she loves Italian. Although it was lovely, not the best we've ever had. Staff were helpful and attentive.

Although the title of my review doesn't really add a lot, the word nice kind of sums up the restaurant. Myself and 8 others booked a table on a Saturday night. The venue is modern and pleasant. We were greeted warmly and shown to our table. I had the chicken starter with peppers on a home made bread. Myself and... More

We where the guests on the table listerning to " You Tube" comedy stetch. The Owners are our friends. Who have very recently lost their mum,who we knew. It think the other diners should have "cut them some slack". As anyone who knows when you lose a parent,at what ever age,it's painfull. So please disreguard the last message. It was... More

Food excellent and Staff helpful. Sadly the insistence of the Chef and Management in playing You Tube Comedy excerpts on full volume to adjoining table guests, without regard to other diners spoiled the latter part of the evening. Not acceptable and hope will not be repeated EVER.

We went for a quite lunch and loved the restaurant. Delicious food, great service and a nice environment. Would recommend after a trip to Cadbury world.
