Unfortunately this review relates a time to when La Fantasia were located at the Dry Arch. We haven't eaten in the restaurant since they moved closer into town. The food on that visit was delicious...I can't fathom why we haven't been back since. Everyone we've spoken to says the food is still delicious, in the new Justice Walsh location.

Absolutely incredible food, large portions, and very reasonably priced. Great early bird menu also and the staff are always friendly. We have occasionally had to wait quite a while for our food, but only on a saturday night or if it's very busy, and the food is always worth the wait. Would 100% recommend.

Was eating there as a group for a friend's birthday. Food was really good, not overly expensive for what you're getting and there is a nice enough atmosphere in the place. However, the initial 40minute wait for the starters, we then had another 45minute wait for our main courses. A lot of the mains were either incorrect or took an... More

Sublime main course of trio of fish and Italian meat balls very good .....However neither starter was good value nor had good flavour. Toast smeared with pate disappointing and if I hadn't ordered goats cheese would not have known I was eating same. Service and house white very good.
