Had dinner here recently and was wonderful as always-impeccable presentation and quality-one thing you can be sure of in La Sosta as opposed to other faux Italian restaurants not too far away.

Simply excellent. The food was so fresh and tasty, and so much attention for details! The bread/bread-stick basket was a nice touch, and there was a great selection of Italian wines and liqueurs. We would be back soon!

Great food, good people and a warm homely "Authentic" Italian atmosphere. A touch of class which other restaurants could learn from.

Just finishing another wonderful meal in La Sosta. The starter, main course and dessert were all fantastic. The atmosphere is second to none and quite often one of the other guests will provide impromptu performances on the resident piano. The staff are always pleasant and helpful and the chef will ensure that any particular dietary requirements are catered for. I... More

This restaurant is often overlooked maybe because of its location, but it is well worth a visit if you want a special meal. I have eaten here a number of times and it never disappoints. The food is always delicious and they have some fabulous Itailian wines at reasonable prices. Claudio and the rest of the staff are lovely and... More

i was here recently and as ever the food was great, i have been here many times and always have great food, service, advice on wine etc. However I was amazed when the waitress came to take the money for the bill and asked "Do you want the change". I have never been asked this before and always feel that... More

Had a lovely meal last night in La Sosta. We hadn't been for a while but as usual were welcomed by Claudio and the lovely staff.as if we were regulars. My beetroot and goats cheese started was delicious and I didn't even get a morsel of my husband's anti pasta misto. After much deliberation we had two lovely main courses... More
