Superb Value

Visited after sightseeing trip to Hadrian's Wall, saw the early diner menu outside and thought we would give it a go. Food was superb, service fast and attentive and great value for money. £35 for four if us including drinks! Would not hesitant to recommend this place !!

Went with some friends on a Saturday evening. Good service from friendly staff. Food was good on the whole but a bit pricey for what it was and sadly Pizza Express do better pizza. Ladies toilet very shabby and whole restaurant ready for a facelift.

It was good before but now under new leadership it's just as good with the added extra of a barman who likes nothing better than to intoxicate you with his drink mixing skills and jolly good they are too.The decor is perhaps a little tired but cannot distract from the great food and attentive service you will receive .I had...

My husband and i ate at La pergola on Saturday evening, not knowing where to choose from all the restaurants in Carlisle. All I can say is Amazing! The staff are friendly, efficient and knowledgable. We had italian cider and half a bottle of prosecco. Homemade Minestrone Soup and Creamy garlic mushrooms served with Fresh Homemade Bread was the best... More

Impromptu visit with my wife and daughter early on a Saturday evening. Stumbled across whilst looking for a curry. (Struggled to find one in Carlisle !!). Restaurant is a tad dated and we were only ones in to begin with. We just had the happy hour menu which had a wide range of pastas and pizzas. We had 3 garlic... More

Lovely waiter very efficient perfect service. He was the only good thing about a cellar restaurant that smelled of damp. The bread wasn't fresh. Four of us all had different meals and all four of us didn't enjoy them. Chicken needed a saw it was so overcooked, pasta arribiata was just plain nasty and tasted stale, crepes in sauce were...

The restaurant menu was varied; the food was nicely cooked and presented and the staff were very polite and gave first class service. We will go back when we are next in Carlise

Tried this once on a friends recommendation. Now we cant get enough of this place. We have been so many times and never had a bad experience yet. The staff are wonderful and so friendly. The decor is cute and if you want a bit more romance get in an alcove and turn the dimmer switch down. And the most... More

Had never been to this restaurant but some friends had been last year and raved about it. Sorry to say our experience was not as good. Six of us went on a Friday night and it was so quiet only two other people there. It was cold and we had to ask for the heat to be put on. No... More
