This is a friendly and authentic family run business. The owners are so warm and friendly and the food is always faultless and generous. I've been going regularly for years and never had a disappointing experience. Great for a last minute weekday dinner, or a big birthday do with friends.

Leo and Ursula are wonderful hosts and extremely friendly with their clientele. They know exactly our likes and dislikes and are happy to prepare something special if required. The house wine is to be recommended and prices are very fair and competitive, although that's not our reason for going there, but for the warmth of welcome and quality of food,... More

My husband and I took visitors from the north for a Saturday night, early evening meal. We waited for their reaction. They were all delighted with the way they were greeted and served and enthused over the authentic Italian food. We have never been anything but delighted when we've had a meal at Al Gatto Nero and so were thrilled... More

My wife and myself went to Al Gatto Nero for our wedding anniversary. We have been before as its the sort of restaurant we enjoy going to, family owned instead of a chain. Leo and Ursula are great hosts who always make us feel very welcome and can never do enough for you. I had pasta as a starter and... More

A group of 8 of us went for my friends birthday to Al Gatto and for a first visit i was pleasently surprised. It is a good size restaurant and they havent over packed it with too many tables so there is plenty of space. The food was all reasonably priced and of good quality, the pizzas were particularly nice... More

Three people for a late-ish Friday night supper. The man who took the orders was friendly and cheerful. The lady who showed us to a table and took our drinks orders was brisk. Not the slightest hint of a smile. when I asked for a soft drink with no ice, she almost scowled! Again when I asked for butter with... More

This was my second visit to the restaurant with a group of friends, all of us now retired but very young at heart! The restaurant is easily missed along the busy Poole Road and there is no parking. However, since we all live nearby it was not a problem. Two of the group have been going there for years and... More

I booked here for a surprise big birthday evening. Leo and Ursula (the owners) couldn't have been more helpful with my running in and out at various times. We pre-chose our dishes by e-mail as there was quite a few of us and when the dishes were brought to the table, it was "where is Mr Andy", "where is Mr... More
