After wanting to go to La Spaghettata for some time and hearing people talking about it, I visited last Friday night and was left disappointed. You can't book a table so you need to be prepared to wait. We were welcomed straight away but was seated at the table in the corner near the salad bar which I didn't like... More

My friend was keen to show me this place as he said it often has queues and is very popular. We visited on a Friday evening about 8pm and he was surprised to find it was half empty. We realised that this was because the university had not yet restarted after Christmas so the student numbers were reduced. The food... More

My first visit to la Spaghettata and at first it did look promising. A well hidden place up two flights of stairs, it is quite nice. Our table ordered three meals (Lasagne - a meat ball /chicken pizza and the sea bass) The lasagne was very nice, the pizza was also very nice (I did try them both) and the... More

Last Saturday before Christmas and everywhere is busy. Finding somewhere to eat was proving difficult until we headed toward the cathedral. This restaurant is up a lot of stairs (no lift) and was not too busy. The two course lunch offers starter, main course and a soft drink for £6.90p. We were promptly seated and our orders taken. I had... More

the food may have been good here, i'm told it is good, but our evening meal was soured by the waiter. We were to be seated in the main dining area but I thought it was a bit dark so I asked to be seated at the rear which was lighter. The waiter didnt seem to have a problem with... More

Had a lovely meal here. Was quite surprised having climbed up the flights of steps to find a lovely authentic Italian bistro. The service was really good and quick. There was a reasonable choice of pasta, risottos, pizzas on the menu. I opted for a creamy chicken pasta dish and my daughter a chicken and mushroom risotto. The portions were... More
