4 adults , 2 x 3yr olds , 1 x 1 1/2 yr old and Daisy 6 months. Early doors celebrations. This could have been a little tricky with lively little ones but all the staff were brilliant and helped in anyway they could. Superb food and service. Thank you for starting our New Years Celebrations perfectly.

We booked a table for our anniversary, (28th Dec). We haven't been to Rastelli's for 7 years. We weren't disappointed. We both had a starter, a main and a dessert. Every course was fantastic. Couldn't find any faults. We really enjoyed our meal and the service and staff were all great. Thank you.

We have eaten here in the past and found it OK. However, we decided to eat a bit later last night and went here. We arrived at 9pm. We had not booked but it was less than half full. Straight away a waitress came over and announced they were closed. Very strange. Closed at 9 pm?, very poor and not... More

Never in over 8 years have I had had bad food or bad service from these people. The staff are great and the food is hot fresh and scrummy. I'm shocked at the small amount of negative reviews, because I have never experienced this here. Always made welcome. You don't keep returning time and time again if its not good...and... More

As soon as we stepped in without a reservation, the first word out of the "maitre d" was "Each of you have to order your own entré or you cannot eat". Although tempted to walk out after this rude welcome, our hunger overcame us. The food was fabulous and the service attentive if a bit brusque. The pasta and pizza... More

My wife and I enjoyed a meal here last night, both having the lasagna, garlic bread and chips followed by fudge cake and ice cream and coffee. The welcome was warm and we were unhurried through our meal. The meal was tasty and we will return on our next visit. If I was to complain it would be the price... More

Like me, if you've a lack of time and are extremely hungry I would suggest this lovely, laid back restaurant. We arrived at 2045hrs on a Saturday night and despite it being busy and our tardiness at getting organised, we still managed to get a table for two. The staff were extremely friendly and the food was good hearty Italian... More
