I went here for an evening meal during the week. The restaurant was quite busy. The food was very nice and the staff were good. I particularly liked the fact they have a dessert trolley that they wheel around the restaurant. I'd recommend this restaurant.

This place is stuck in a timewarp, I've been there a few times over many years and nothing changes, the decor, the menu even the specials are the same specials as the first time I went, probably 20 years ago. The food isn't too bad I've had a lot worse but then again I wouldn't go overboard about it either.I'm... More

Four of us had lunch in this Bank Street, Ashford restaurant in mid March. I can only say that it was absolutely delicious. They have a 2 or 3 course menu with choice or an a la carte option. Three of us chose the set menu which included prawn cocktail for starter, chicken in a delicious mushroom and cream sauce... More

A very lovely meal in pleasant surroundings the only problem was a noisy table opposite which overpowered our conversation and every one elses. we would go there again and recomend it to friends and family..The service was very friendly, we were not rushed between courses, the food was fresh and hot.

The food here is always excellent and the staff are very friendly. My girlfriends and I always eat lunch here when we have a get together. Lunch is extremely good value. Evenings can be a bit pricey but there is no competition in Ashford. We have never had a meal which we did not thoroughly enjoy.

A very friendly and welcoming restaurant if a little outdated now. The menu is well tried and tested and as usual is first class although again the menu could do with updating. Would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody visiting Ashford but it does get very booked up towards the end of the week. A good meal always guaranteed.

I have frequented this restaurant many times over the years and or though the staff have got older and moved on but Giovani still remains. The atmosphere is cosy and relaxing with no loud music which makes a change from some establishments. Those personal touches received from the staff make you feel at home and most welcomed. The menu is... More

Well - yet another lovely lunch served by the friendly and attentive staff at this little relaxed Italian treat of a restaurant. It does have a slightly retro but quaint feel to the interior decoration, but don't let that put you off a visit - as the food is honest and homely and freshly prepared. There are great value for...

My partner and I went there on Friday evening and were very disappointed with the service and food. We barely had finished our starters (which was okay) when the main meal appeared. The vegetables were awful, burnt saute potatoes and microwaved vegetables. My plate was luke warm and when I told the waiter he pratically accused me of lying. We... More

This restaurant is so typical of the small town italian eatery with an excellent menu that mixes traditional with new. No pretences just good food with friendly service and an excellent desert trolley.
