My Wife and I spent a weekend in Durham and on the Saturday night I looked on trip adviser for an Italian Restaurant in the City Centre near where we were staying. I came across La Spaghettata and it had very good reviews.. We walked up for approx 7.15 and up the stairs to the Restaurant and was immediately shown... More

I came here with friends on a recommendation and we enjoyed it. The background music certainly added to the ambience - eclectic! I wish they had made the free salad bar more obvious to us on arrival though. They very kindly let us split the bill as well. Top notch service, food was alright too.

Located just up from the Market Place in Durham - food is good - large portions and the prices are competitive - service has always been good. It's up a few flights of stairs though so anyone with access issues be warned you might not be abl to get up so easily.

Whenever I am in Durham La Spaghettata is usually #1 choice for dinner. The service is excellent, portions large and extremely good value for money. All round good Italian food. Fabio's bar upstairs is also great at night. Would advise all to visit!!

We waited a while for a table but weren't disappointed. Servings were much too large which was off-putting but very nice. Waiters are very nice and attentive.

We have had some great times here over the years and decided to go for a family meal to celebrate half term. The whole resteraunt was almost unrecognisable from our last visit. Service was slower than usual, there was no energy or enthusiasm from the staff. The food was good but it came without any character, this is an Italian... More
