My wife and I took our two kids (5yrs & 3yrs) for a meal in the restaurant. My wife's pasta contained a piece of METAL WIRE which she cut her gum on. I have no idea how or why this was able to find its way into her food. I understand that mistakes like this happen very occasionally, however when... More

Don't judge it by its appearance outside. It looks like any other Italian Pizzeria, but inside is a very good restaurant with a varied menu. The staff are attentive and helpful. We didn't book, but they found room for us. Will definitely go back.

We came across this by accident. Not only did we like the village but the Restaurant was excellent. We arrived just in time without booking for the "early bird" menu, from 4 to 5.30 pm. Every Pasta and Pizza dish was reduced to £6.95 - even the more expensive listings at £16! It is advisable to book really - we... More

Visited on a Friday night- we booked well in advance and a good job as this place was packed. Able to mix up the seafood and the Italian- one of our party had fish and chips which he was delighted with. Others had Italian fayre. The calzone was very tasty and the gnocchi from the specials board was delicious. A... More

Gosh what a change from a couple of years ago! Gone is the 'tired' old pub and restaurant and now it is a bright modern pub and great Italian restaurant. First hint! Book as we turned up on Friday night and they were full so we booked for the Sunday night. Drink in the bar first with great pint of... More

We had booked in for the 'early bird' and we arrived at about 1630. First in, but the other customers soon flooded in. Very nicely appointed restaurant, but without the normal faded pictures of Rome or Sicily from the 1970's (thankfully !). Good range on the menu, and all locally sourced ingredients ( fish). We had the grilled sardines as... More

I must confess we only ended up at Italia as we were staying at the Hope and Anchor and we had run out of options for dinner. We literally couldn’t get a table anywhere else in Alnmouth at the time. In spite of not having booked we explained we were residents and we were quickly shown to one of the... More

What looks like a bog standard Italian restaurant turns out to be much more. Delicious gourmet food. Was let down a bit by the service - big party was in on the same night and we had to wait ages to be shown to our reserved table. Apparently inexperienced waiter couldn't think laterally. More experienced member of staff soon sorted... More

Ate here recently with my mum and brother. Service was friendly, prompt and efficient all evening. Main disappointment was the food, which was variable. I had risotto, which was a little dry and stodgy. One other main was served with penne pasta, and pasta was a little undercooked - bit more than Al dente. Other main course was a chicken... More
