Me and my partner normally go for prezzos as we always have a nice time in there and noticed it's slightly cheaper than cafe uno. However it looked very buy so we tried cafe uno instead, I'm glad we did. Thee food was delicious and very presentable. The staff were very friendly and didn't have to wait very long for... More

I met a friend here for a catch up dinner; it was both our first visit and we will definitely be going again. The staff are lovely and very attentive. I ordered the bruschetta for starter and spaghetti bolognese for main, my friend had goats cheese tart for her starter and chicken ravioli for main. Everything was delicious, fresh and... More

Arrived for late lunch with my 2 sons after visiting the cinema. Shown to table and asked what drinks we wanted instantly, before even glancing at the menu. Within 2 minutes we were asked our food choices which again was too quick! Starters were not good- calamari tasted if nothing, and cheesy nachos were tiny portion lacking in cheese! Main... More

Hadn't been to a cafe uno for a long time. Menu not changed much though the choices we made were good. Very good service - it was early evening & v quiet, would hope it would be the same later when it would be a lot busier.

Oddly bough, had no plans to go this restaurant. Arrived at the retail park area to find the establishment we were due to visit had closed down! There were a whole series of formulaic chain restaurants and chose this one. Service was very rapid and enthusiastic. The calamari was well cooked and well presented. My paella was a very nice...

I visited caffe uno for the first time today and what a great experience! We had full English breakfast which consisted of the freshest ingredients and was perfectly cooked, even the poached eggs were perfect which so many restaurants seem to struggle with. Really friendly, efficient staff. Will definitely be returning.

First time here for us after cinema visit. Had a drink before cinema, like the ambience and booked a table for after film finished. Starter arrived quickly but mains took a while. Food tasted good but could have been hotter. Would normally have gone to Prezzo but wanted a change, although menu very similar.

food is good but you can tell it is a pre-prepared and the cooks just put together having said that the staff are attentive and ambiance is very nice
