The only fault I had with the visit here is that when we were sat and handed out menus we were not informed of any unavailable item. Unfortunately one of the items unavailable was picked and it was only after we had placed the order with the waitress did she tell us the option was out of stock... read more

Despite reading absolutely scathing reviews all over facebook I thought we'd give this place a try - I've been once before and had a great time, plus I like the decor and it's local. We walked in and couldn't see any staff so approached the bar, 3 members of staff behind the bar ignored us for rather a long time,... More

wanted to try this place for a while, so when someone suggested we eat out last night i mentioned Pesto and off we went. Upon arrival first impressions are great. We were greeted and shown to a table by a very polite member of staff who took our drinks order. Looking through the menu everything sounds delicious and it paints... More

Visited here Thursday Evening - it was really busy - which I always think is a good sign. The food was very good as was the service. Really pleased that we now have a local tapas restaurant - and a good one at that.

Excellent food!! however staff need some training. Took a long time to get drinks and the service was quite slow. However with time I'm sure it will be excellent.

Nothing special at all. Big fan of Italian food but pesto seems to miss the mark, generic Italian staple dishes that have been done to death rehashed into tapas.

We visited as a group of 8 and thoroughly enjoyed one of the set menus for groups of 8 or more. All the dishes were excellent and there was far more food than we could ever have eaten. We were initially a little disappointed to be told none of the dishes can be changed, but in the end this really... More

Me and my boyfriend went here for a date as we've been exited to try it for some time! We were greeted by fairly friendly waitresses, though many seemed to be chatting amongst themselves, ordered starters and they were delivered quickly. We ordered the antipasti for 2, which was nice, the relish was delicious, though the starter itself was fairly... More
