We usually come each year end-November / early-December for a break from shopping and the Christmas markets, and every time have a great experience. We arrived mid-afternoon and were seated after about five minutes - the service was great (apart from one very brisk and silent lady, but she did seem extremely busy in her defence), the food lovely, the...

After hitting the Xmas Markets it was time for something a little less frantic. We had pre booked a table for three the day prior to our Xmas Markets trip, this our second visit to Croma. Service good and with a smile, even on a busy Sunday evening. Croma offers good value, good service with a nice choice of food.... More

A short walk away from the Christmas markets near the Town Hall. Away from the busy streets and seated straight away at 3pm. This independent Italian offers usual pasta and pizza but with some unusual and ‘local’ toppings eg Cumberland sausage, black pudding and Garstang blue cheese. Chose pizzas which were nice and tasty and crispy and opted for a... More

I've been to Croma on previous occasions and had a really nice meal but Saturday (13/12/14) nights visit was much shorter and much less enjoyable that the previous occasion, We arrived at the busy restaurant at around 6;30pm and I asked the guy at the front door if it was possible to order a drink before we went to our...

Very busy and had to wait at very crowded small bar, seated on the ground floor in good position. This was the first Italian restaurant I have been in where the waitress was not sure if I could have a glass of Chianti. Starters were good but pizza and paste mains only average.

we had our works party here. The food was really nice and the service and staff very good. A nice unusual menu for a pizza joint. The bar situation is a tad strange as it doesn't let you pay for drinks until the end of the meal. It's awkward when 20 odd are trying to work out and remember what... More

we visited Croma whilst at the Xmas markets, we had the antipasti charcuterie which was lovely, they Rosemary garlic bread was hot and tasty. We then shared a pizza and a Caesar salad, both of which were nice. Service was very efficient considering how busy it was.
