We visited Rastelli's on a bank holiday and it was packed. As we hadn't booked we had a 15 minute wait at the bar, but it was worth the wait. We only had pizzas so I can't comment on the pasta, but the pizzas were fantastic. The bases were really thin and crispy just like a real Italian pizza should... More

Lovely atmosphere on a cold, wet night. Good value for money. Big portions and variety. there were 4 in our group and we all had different main courses. Every one enjoyed what they had and left extremely satisfied with the food and the cost.

We chose Rastelli's as it is directly opposite the Royalty cinema where we has just seen Far from the madding crowd, the cinema is very good but that is another story. Rastelli's did not dissapoint as we received great service and generous helpings of tasty food. The lobster ravioli and sea food rosotto washed down with good house wine followed... More

We had a really enjoyable meal in a nicely busy atmosphere. I have been into the restaurant a number of times and always had a very... More

We visited the restaurant on a Sunday night. The restaurant was quite quiet and we got a table without booking. The staff were friendly and attentive. We had the garlic bread and ribs which were both gorgeous. My partner then had pizza and I had the lasagna. Both tasted fresh and we're not overly greasy as in some Italians. The... More
