Lovely surroundings, attentive but unobtrusive service. Prices very reasonable. Recommend the Chef's trio of pasta dishes and house wine.

Friendly welcome & lively ambience as walked in. Seemed very popular & quickly filled up; including several larger parties but the room was big enough to absorb them without intruding on the privacy of smaller groups. Initially, I thought the menu looked on the pricey side & reined my daughters in to sharing 2 starters between the 4 of us.... More

We came here for desserts and tea/coffee as the earlier restaurant we went to, hardly had any food. The service was very good. The log fire made it very warm and cosy that you want to fall asleep after a heavenly delicious dessert :-)

After having a distinctly average experience when we visited two years ago we decided to try once again. We're glad we did! The food was very good and the service was quick and informative. Our only criticism would be the veg was slightly bland and required seasoning, easily rectified though with some salt. Also, the layout of the room where... More

The food is really impressive. My boyfriend and I had a lovely evening here. We had garlic bread with tomato and the 'misto fritto' for starter - both were lovely. I had the 'tris pasta' which was a tasty selection of 3 pastas chosen by the chef. My Boyfriend had the '4 stagiono' pizza which he highly rated. Lively spot... More

After seeing great reviews about this place on trip advisor, my boyfriend and I were really looking forward to visiting this restaurant for lunch. However, we left feeling disappointed by the experience. Firstly, we found the manager rude. We asked for clarification regarding a dish on the menu ‘Tris di paste- let the chef surprise you with three different pasta... More

Early evening meal for 2. Friendly welcome, modern comfortable surroundings and relaxed atmosphere. Interesting menu, well presented food which we both thought was very good. I opted for Tri Paste.. Chefs surprise 3 types of pasta. Great decision. Perfectly cooked, just the right amount. Complimentary bread and olives were a welcome extra. Definitely recommend.

I recently took my girlfriend to Cucina Rustica for her birthday and it was fantastic. We were greeted and seated quickly and the service throughout was attentive, yet distant enough to not intrude. The food and drink was lovely and had plenty of choice. I had the best fillet steak ever! We would certainly return here in the future as... More

This was a Xmas night out with the office and we ordered from a set Xmas Menu. It was packed! So what happened next????? We were shown to a table on the right as we walked in and this only had 4 or 5 tables and compared with the madness going on in the main restaurant was a sea of... More

Food was divine, the restaurant is cosy warm, we had a lovely dinner for our anniversary. Only criticism is that it was quite noisy.
