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.

Been meaning to try this restaurant since it's opening. When we spotted they did a mid week deal we made a booking. The dining area has a nice minimal look and feel to it and the food was served promptly and was tasty. The overall experience was good with no issues or complaints.

We came here for my dad's birthday lunch earlier today. Due to unforeseen changes, I had to change the table time- the staff were really obliging and helpful. The actual meal was wonderful- great food, really high quality. The staff were great! I would absolutely recommend.

Went Saturday lunchtime for family meal. Waiter very chatty and explained all the meals. Very good service. Food delicious. Nice wine. Not many customers at lunchtime but apparently very busy in the evenings. Highly recommend. Prices reasonable too.

This was our first visit to La Banca and it will not be our last. This is an exquisite little gem of a restaurant that exudes class and care with the décor and the way it treats the customers that dine out. Firstly, as the name suggests, this building was a former Bank which has now been put to a... More
