Went here for lunch with a colleague and the Salad Nicoise was amazing - the tuna was real and not from a tin and the portion was almost too much for lunch time. Not complaining though! The wine list offers some good Italian wines at very affordable prices and the Chianti is superb and not... read more

Enjoyed a really lovely evening meal with friends. The food was delicious! I loved the cosy atmosphere and friendly service. I have recommended this gem of a restaurant to friends and family who are lucky enough to live locally, and I hope to visit again soon.

Having not long moved to the area, it is always great when you find a good independent family run restaurant on your doorstep!! A couple of friends and I went for dinner last Friday night, it had good food, a really nice atmosphere and friendly attentive staff. I see that someone else has enjoyed the chicken and mushroom risotto too... More

I came here for lunch with a small group of friends and we were all amazed by the fine quality of food and table service. I ordered the Mexicana pizza and it's safe to say that it was one of the best pizzas I had ever eaten. My friends all enjoyed their meals and not a single person had a... More

The wine list offers some good Italian wines at very affordable prices and the Chianti is superb and not expensive at all!

The only real Italian restaurant in St Neots. If you want authentic Italian food & a cosy setting, this is the place to go. The service is not always the quickest, but this isn't a fast food joint. If you want a conveyor belt experience, go to Prezzo or Frankie & Benny's.

Ate here as part of a company event with around 20 colleagues. The service was very slow - when the dishes did arrive they were bought out one by one so the first to be served had cold meals by the time the last plate arrived on the table. The food was also very indifferent and I thought overpriced for... More

haven't dined here since the new cinema complex has opened, and with it the pizza express. Therefore it's fair to say that Girasola now has direct competition and they have responded well. The menu choices have greatly increased but the family run atmosphere remains. Myself and daughter dined on a Saturday night bout 18:30. The menu impressed. We picked the... More

I love this Italian! It is a little pricey for the food but you certainly get what you pay for. Lovely food, perfectly cooked. Nice and cosy inside and staff are very friendly and helpful.
