Good Food, good service!!

Great restaurant! Excellent food & excellent value for money. Loved the little extra treats like the welcome glass of prosecco & the lemon sorbet. Good service & was made to feel very welcome.

Although this wasn't our only reason for visiting, the free glass of prosecco was a nice gesture! We all had the special... Steak and roast potatoes for €9,80 accompanied by a 1/2 bottle of Pinot Gregio, a bottle of aqua fizzante, followed by desserts!! Total bill €74 for 4!! Food was ok however, the waiters were very rude! They were... More

We walked pass this restaurant after we had eaten one evening but it looked really nice and the guy outside was giving away vouchers for a free glass of prosecco with a meal so we thought it was worth a try! It was so good that we visited twice in a week. It was constantly busy but the service was... More

We took a risk and chose this restaurant late in the evening as it seemed like a lovely setting and relatively busy. We weren't disappointed. Our party of 9 had a range of different food on the menu, starters and desserts and everyone was happy. Their pastas, salads and meats went down really well. Staff were pleasant too.

The food is decent but the service was slow and impersonal. The staff was rushing by and just didn't seem to have time for us.

Lovely restaurant & was recommended to us. We were given a free voucher for a glass of prosecco when we arrived at the restaurant. Staff were very friendly & helpful & we loved the food here! The mussels in the tomato sauce were delicious! Nice Italian food!

Al Vaticano has a man outside offering vouchers for a free glass of prosecco to passers by and also offer bread and olive oil. However they recover the cost of this with a cover charge. The customers are mainly large parties of German tourists. The food was nice, the staff attentive and service prompt. They don't bring the bill to... More

Staff were keen and made a fuss. Main course arrived really sharply. All four of us enjoyed our meal. Good value. Busy and lively.

Familiar faces and fantastic food at Al Vaticano. I eat here with clients twice a year in January and June, the food is always good, great quality and value, a good wine list and excellent service, we love to go back and I will take my partner when we travel back in the Summer. If they have the warm octopus... More
