Nice but a little tired

Food was "ok", the pre theatre menu is good value, not brilliant but presented well and tasty enough. Staff were attentive and pleasant. What lets it down is the actual restaurant. Its just a little tired and grubby. Decor is dated. Seating is scuffed and marked. Toilet seat was stained as well... read more

My mother and I came here for a meal before a show. Front of house were efficient and managed to seat us without a reservation as well as being full of banter the whole time. My pasta was under seasoned but overall the food was fine. The kitchen should up its game to match their professionalism. Not that its bad,... More

Our first visit as we were going to a show at the Kings. The pre theatre menu was excellent. Food delicious. I had the calamari starter and the sea bass which was beautifully presented. The service was the most efficient I have come across without being rushed. Well worth a visit.

Excellent food, excellent service. Pre theatre menus are good, with a decent range. Can't fault it. Not sure I didn't know about this wee place.

My 3 friends & I went here for a pre theatre dinner on a Friday evening. The staff were most welcoming & there was a young lad playing an acoustic guitar which was a nice touch. Service was quick & all the food we had was both hot & tasty. We also had the house white wine which was of... More

I work for around the corner from Teatro and have been twice for lunch. The food has always been faultless. The first time we went as a group of 5 and the second time we had a group of 8. In both instances we had our starter and main course served and finished within 45 minutes. The first time I... More

Decided on a nice wee Italian, looked nice from the outside.. Its cramped, barley enough space to move especially if you are stuck sitting at the side of the table ( which is how they have some of their tables for 2 set).. Food was bland, ordered Carbonara (not exactly hard to make or flavour) not a taste off it,... More

Tried this restaurant for the first time and was not disappointed. The pre theatre menu is good value with a wide choice within the courses. The service and ambience were excellent and as it only seat 40 - 50 the atmosphere is intimate and friendly. Got a discount card from our waiter and would recommend and return.
