We popped into this restaurant and were told apologetically that they could squeeze us in but showed us the table location first...... not the best table but the restaurant was busy. The food was excellent. The staff friendly. I would recommend Fausto's.

Stopped off here for a meal with friends who were visiting and was very pleased. Great atmosphere, very friendly staff, lovely food and wine. A real gem of a restaurant in this little town. The menu had a good range of choices and the quality was very good. I think the atmosphere in this little side street restaurant was just... More

We came for dinner by recommendation only to be seated outside the toilet door and close to the kitchen counter! Not the best seat in the room at a time when the restaurant was far from packed. The dishes were passably good. My son adores Spaghetti Bolognese so it was a surprise and a clear indication of the mediocrity that... More

We have been meaning to visit Fausto's for some time and finally managed a visit last week. We had such a wonderful experience on the Thursday that we immediately booked again for the Saturday! On both occasions we were made to feel so welcome; the food was truly outstanding and such good value. This really is a place not to... More

We have recently enjoyed a wonderful meal at Faustos - the taste and presentation were superb. We shared a special starter which included hot melting Camembert with chunky bread, olives & chutney (mmmmmmm!). And the seafood main courses were also delicious. We're looking forward to the next visit!

We popped in without a reservation and we're lucky to get a table early on. Services and restaurant were welcoming with great choice of wines. Menu is fairly small but the food is excellent, the pasta portions were huge and the tiramisu was very tasty indeed. We would go back, but we'd recommend making a reservation to avoid disappointment.

After reading so many reviews about this place and having a yearning for some Italien food I decided to try Faustos, wow, what a lovely experience. We received a lovely warm welcome, staff were very attentive and the food was some of the best I have eaten in this country! Proving that sometimes simple ingredients cooked to perfection can be...

We went there tonight and for the first time ever I'm reviewing a restaurant. The 2 waitresses were very good especially the girl that said she was relatively new and she made an excellent Tia Maria coffee. The food was delicious and freshly prepared and we weren't rushed but able to relax over a nice bottle of house red. We... More
