It was clear upon arrival the restaurant was short staffed. However we were seated and gave our order. As usual the meal was lovely, large serving despite it being an afternoon happy hour menu. My only criticism was I waited over 30 mins for my cup of coffee at the end of my meal. I did finally get a member... More

We have never been disappointed with any of the Martinos restaurants...our most recent visit during the happy hour 1st November was no different. The restaurant was very busy with the happy hour deal however the service and food were second to none...add to that the opportunity to have a couple of games of pool and a walk to see the... More

We decided to eat out for a treat on a Saturday afternoon and try Martino`s arrived about 16.00hrs and ordered drinks at bar to be asked if we were eating also,only to be told they have a little break from serving food for a couple of hours. At the busiest time on a weekend and not starting again until 17.30hrs.... More

A beautiful well appointed restaurant let down by the food. I had a squid starter and I thought I was chewing on an eraser. The squid was very rubbery. my main was the good old standby - Spag Bol. This I will say was quite good but not outstanding and was certainly let down by the squid.

I had the Goats cheese pizza - absolutely brilliant. Had a really good taste. Thoroughly recommend it. Also the Italian Experience part of the restaurant is very good and the staff are very friendly. Their Sunday lunch is very good value.

It's an Italian my lad had a pizza which looked good but I had T-bone steak which was cooked to perfection and came with veg chips etc and was to much to eat. Not badly priced and def worth a stop.

I have eaten here with friends on a regular basis. It has been busy on some visits, but nothing like this visit. A hot, summer's day and a cheap lunch time menu meant the restaurant was very busy. You cannot fault the food, and it's great value. Staff are hardworking, and seemed very busy, but had the time to ask... More
