This was without doubt the worst meal I have ever eaten in my entire life. Frito misto del mare. I ungraded this dish from a starter to a main meal. It consisted of limp lettuce swimming in a watery sauce with tuna mush in the bottom and a few shrimps and mussels . Nothing to do with a frito misto.... More

We were early for the train and wandered into here for lunch. What a fabulous find! Perfect location for the station and is lovely inside. The staff were very welcoming and genuinely friendly. The food was gorgeous with one of the best garlic breads I've ever had! Will definitely return when in Carlisle!

Just back from a superb meal at La Mezzaluna, always good food and good service, today was even better. Very quiet time so staff extra attentive and the food as fresh as anything, just the right time between courses and they were able to adapt the menu to suit what I wanted. Only niggle was the loudness of the music,... More

We first visited this restaurant two years and thought it was good. We we sat in the main restaurant at that time which was fine, though a little loud at times. This time we were a party of 6 seated upstairs which was even better which was quieter with views from the window. Again the food was outstanding - we... More

A big thank you to all the staff last Saturday (11th) for accommodating our large hen do! We had a fantastic meal and the price was very reasonable (happy hour). Great to know there's an upstairs for larger parties, many thanks

Lovely, absolutely everything was lovely. Staff, as always, well mannered and attentive but not "all over" you, whole place was spotless clean, food was gorgeous, again like usual, and the price has never, ever been outrageous. Have been here on so many occasions and have never been disappointed. They noted my daughters birthday and, very thoughtfully, didn't make a big... More
