We so enjoyed our first visit, we went back twice more. The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly and very efficient. Family run, it's good value in a good location in Bowness. I would recommend it to anyone.

We called in around 5 o'clock to book a table for 7 o'clock that evening - booking is advised, as whilst we were there, we saw customers being turned away as they were fully booked. There is a...

A superb choice of food and it tasted excellent. The service was faultless and the staff were great with the kids. A really busy and popular restaurant. Can't recommend it highly enough.

A trip to Bowness wouldn't be complete without a visit to Rastelli. The food is delicious and staff friendly. What more can you ask for.
