My husband and I were lucky to get a table here due to it being bank holiday weekend. We were not disappointed the food was excellent, service was fantastic the staff were very friendly, only downside to the visit was the drinks, £4.50 for a G&T (all in one glass) was a tad expensive, other than that lovely restaurant.

I decided to eat at rastelli's because I have been returning to lakes as member of family not well and last three weeks every meal I have had in the centre of the lakes... More

We had starters, main and dessert. The quality is average and expensive for what it is. The top 5 Tripadvisor restaurants in Bowness are in a different league yet the same price so we won't be returning.

Me and my partner returned to this restaurant for the second time expecting the food to be just as good as good as before. However, my partner ordered lasagne which he had enjoyed previously although, this time the lasagne had a very strong taste of mustard whilst also being made up of mostly thick lumpy cheese/mustard sauce! We told the... More

We visited Rastelli's at the weekend and had a beautiful meal. The chicken catatoria was delicious and my husband throughly enjoyed his Veal escalopes. Would definite return next time we are visiting Bowness-on-Windermere.

This is our 4th time here and we've never been disappointed. We've always been lucky, as we've been seated without having made a booking. Although I would definitely suggest booking, as it is REALLY busy (a good sign, I think). There's nothing pretentious about the place. It's clean, has a great atmosphere and is decorated in typical italian colours BUT... More
