Bargain Italian

Great plate of food, you will never leave hungry, evev if you have the two course menu for £10. Not classic Italian, but it is very close. Staff are very attentive, you do not have to wait too long for your meals

Very popular this little Italian gem! Restaurant is quaint and full of character- try to get to the back of the restaurant. Food is good value for money but doesn't compromise on taste. Try it but book a table!

Ate here 1 week ago with my Grandparents. Bruchetta was to die for and rather filling, ordered Prawn and Mushroom Pasta for main and it was the yummiest pasta dish I think I have eaten in the UK. Only downside is its rather cramped seating and gets VERY HOT. Staff are friend and service is quick but they can be... More

3 'ladies who lunch' visited The Cappuccino Bar on Friday. We booked before to be on the safe side. Had the pick of several tables one of which was in glorious sunshine. Chose that one until we realised we would be dazzled and unable to see. It was amusing to watch every small group that came in go through the... More

We eat here regularly. The staff are welcoming and always happy to see you. The food is excellent and service just as good. The menu is two courses for £10.95. The portions are full size, not smaller versions as in a lot of these deals. The choice is full and varied and a litre carafe of delicious house wine can't... More

Being a bit naughty we always seem to want to go here at the last minute but they are very accommodating and normally fit us in somewhere. This is a very popular restaurant which is not surprising as the food is always very good and at very reasonable prices too.

Arrived early evening on a Monday without booking, given a table without fuss. Place looks a little shabby from the outside but when you enter its clean and spacious and goes back a long way. Family run, very pleasant staff who explained the set meal deal on offer. Typical authentic Italian menu, obviously home cooked, very reasonable prices. Got very... More
