We went to the Trattoria last night to celebrate a birthday. The atmosphere was humming and all boded well for a good evening. However, mour two avocado starters arrived 'al dente' and mine was drowning in an over-powering, gloomy vinaigrette, not a good beginning. Yes, I should have sent them back, but it was a birthday celebration, so I let... More

We have been using Trattorias for over 25 years we have never had a bad meal or experience there. In fact we almost feel like one of the family and are treated the same.

We went to have dinner to this place encouraged by the great opinions of customers on TripAdvisor. Theoretically, it is one of the best ones in Ashford. It was not bad. The ambient was noisy, probably because it was full-booked that night. Food was fine, better than average, but not brilliant (specially on the presentation of the dishes). The desserts... More

I first visited this restaurant 25 years ago, and since then I have always known I can rely on a good menu with some delicious choices beautifully cooked. If you like real Chicken Kiev, made with lots of garlic butter, rather than the factory-moulded type many restaurants serve up, this is the place to go! The dessert trolley is mouthwatering,... More

This restaurant is very popular and offers a good selection of mainly traditional Italian/Sicilian dishes. We were a group of five and although the place was pretty full, service was good and fairly quick from the attentive staff. Delicious food, nicely presented with generous selections of vegetables. Very tempting sweet trolley. Tasty wine selection. Best surprise at the end was... More

Ate here for lunch on a Saturday, having booked. The place soon filled up! Made to feel very welcome by the staff. Good choice on menu, nothing too fancy, but very tasty. Wish I could have made it to the sweet course, as by then I was too full! A delightful place, if I lived nearer I would certainly patronise... More
