The first time I tried al gatto Nero it was very good, the second time was even better! The service was brilliant and we were well looked after. I had the sirloin steak off the specials menu which was one of the best steaks I've had with a lovely sauce and cooked just how I asked, the pizza was thin... More

This restaurant is my local. I have been there 5 times since I moved to that area 3 months ago. The service is amazing, the food is beautiful, and the pricing is fair. Some people will be put off by the location, it is opposite Tesco in Branksome. Parking is pretty non-existent, but I would definitely recommend looking past these... More

Visited again and had a few take away meals at AL GATTO NERO. Once again the staff were excellent with a prompt and professional yet very friendly service. The food as always was excellent and great value for money. We definitely recommend this great restaurant.

You can tell that the owner's have gone to extra lengths to get ingredients from their home country, it really shows in the quality of their food. Pizzas are crispily excellent and the pasta dishes have a great depth of flavour. Even the olives are extra tasty.

My husband and I decided that we wanted pizza for dinner and as we felt that going to our favourite pizza restaurant, The Stable in Poole, was a bit far and wanted take away, we picked up 2 pizzas from Al Gatto Nero as the reviews were positive. When my husband returned home the pizza looked like 'pizza from yesterday'... More
