First visit to La Banca over the Easter period for a family birthday. Everyone had a different Italian meal from Sea Bass to Fillet Steak & the quality was very good. Friendly staff and good value for money will definitely book again soon

We returned to La Banca after quite a break and shame on us as it was as excellent as always! The whole experience from welcome to goodbye was superb. The food and wine were expertly recommended, cooked and served, with nothing too much trouble. This is a proper family restaurant and highly recommended. We will not be leaving it too... More

My wife and I spent an amazing evening tonight taking the pasta and sauces class at the cookery school at La Banca. The food was fabulous yet made simple when guided by the superb Chef Mauro Sannio and his lovely wife Alison. I would highly recommend taking any of their classes if you are a fan of Italian food, it's... More

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.
