Good food and service

Visited over Easter so it was really busy. We were placed right next to a large family group, who let children stand on chairs and lean over our table so not great, but this is not the restaurants fault. The food was good, and arrived quickly. Staff seemed friendly but obviously rushed off... read more

The chicken liver starter was fantastic. Equally good was the breaded escalopes for main (I asked for a combo between two escalope options - so the chef came out to discuss how he could prepare it). Don't expect "candlelight" privacy on a busy night - it is often full-up with locals, which is a good sign. Beer selection could be... More

Love it here, been a few times now and did not realise they were on trip advisor. Everytime I get good food and good service. The prices are average but what is not average is the lovely warm service you get. A great general menu and a few specials added too which is nice, although I am a sucker for... More

Don't know why we have not been back for so long, but pleased to be back and to find it is still serving the same type of food with the same efficient service. Still noisy but some people like it noisy. Certainly got a buzz about it, with lots of groups of people, all enjoying themselves. Would not recommend it... More

There is nothing special about Rastelli's. It's another Pizzaria. Good pizza, good desserts. Not enough local beers though. Service was as to be expected and the waitresses were chatty and friendly. Decent prices and a smile with the bill!

This is a very popular restaurant close to the town centre. It has a good varied menu and the meal I had was excellent. Service was also very good although it was very busy. Like a lot of restaurants they charge over the top for drinks, in my case the wine was average but a ridiculous price.
