Never disappoints

I have been here many times over the past 5 years and never been disappointed. Service is always good - friendly and efficient. Menu is simple but good. Tasty food and good quality. Decent wine list and good standard of house wine. Good for couples,groups or for business people on their own.

Tried out Al Boschetto as a walk in booking on Sunday afternoon with my partner. I was delighted with my choice. We were given a lovely table, and the waitress was very attentive and polite. The Pizza was fantastic, followed by two very tasty deserts. Quite a lovely way to spend a lazy afternoon. Highly recommend it. Jeff

Lovely restaurant, a lot larger than you would think looking in at it. The service was fantastic and the food was perfect and not too expensive at all. I would eat here again if I was in the area.

Are here on a night out had brochettes to start great choice. I then had the special pasta, chicken with wild mushrooms. Pasta was a little underdone but not worth handing it back. The sauce was very tasty. My wife had a pizza calzone it was huge. No way one person could finish on their own. I probably would try... More

I am a regular at Al Boschetto. It has decent Italian food, always good value and generally good food. Some dishes are worth a special mention - I love the lasagne for a very hearty meal, and the tricolor salad as starter is delicious. It's a friendly place, good service and decent house wine. A good place to go for... More

This is a deceptively large restaurant given the size of the frontage. The food is of excellent quality, especially from the specials menu on the board outside (just a bit more unusual than on a normal Italian menu) and all at a very reasonable price!
