Great little Italian, consistent, and the manager Angelo is a star. Gets crazy busy at weekends and is a tad noisy but a;ways a good meal.

I love the food here! But I wouldn't choose to go at a weekend, it gets too noisy and you can't have a conversation across your table.

If you want a quiet restaurant to hide away in the corner and whisper sweet nothings to each other - sneak off somewhere else. The Italian Connection is busy and loud. It's loud because it's always full - that should tell you enough - it's good. Because it's busy - you will have to grab the waiters' attention every now... More

We use this Italian quite often both to eat in & take away. The staff are lovely. The food is great. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere but does have the tendancy to get quite loud, especially in the weekend nights (Thurs to Sun) as it's always very busy.

Ordered steak again and again enjoyed it. Other people I was with enjoyed their food which was a selection of pasta and pizza. Only downfall is that it is very busy and you might have to wait a while but it is worth the wait. Unfortunately it gets a bit noisy on a weekend and not really for young children... More

Went on a Saturday night. Did not book but easily got a table for two on spec. Very busy service was ok food was ok very average but not expensive. Would not go back. I think venue is for large noisy groups out. Several were in when we were there.
