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

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

Went for lunch with my wife on a weekend break in Durham. The staff were very attentive and courteous. We had cheesy garlic bread & mixed olives for starters. Both were delicious. For main I had the seafood linguine and my wife had the king prawn, salmon & monkfish with peppers on a skewer served on a bed of safron... More

On our visit to Durham we had booked a table for three at the well-known chain Piz.Exp. To our great annoyance their ovens had broken down. The other well-known chain Ziz. had a 30 minute wait (despite having many empty tables !) so we had to look elsewhere. Close by we found La Spaghettata, and ventured up the long flight... More

The climb up the stairs (not suitable for disabled people) should help build up your appetite for the large portions and good value food you find at the top. The atmosphere is friendly and quite "studenty", although there were two large parties and some solo business people there when I visited. The music was perhaps a little loud, but included... More

My friends and I often visit La Spaghettata when in a Durham and haven't had a bad experience thus far. Despite often being busy and usually visiting in a large group, we are always seated promptly. The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxing, and the staff have always been attentive and considerate, and eager to help us with anything we... More
