From the moment we arrived to when we left, Alberto, the chef-patron and Francesco, the waiter, were a delight. The advice both gave was excellent about wine and food. There were several specials not on the menu and the aubergine starter served with bechamel sauce was delicious, the swordfish main was wonderfully cooked and the peaches poached with amaretto and...

We had visited this restaurant with a view to holding our anniversary meal there upon leaving that night we decided it was the place, at that point Alberto was unaware of our plans. After making an appointment to discuss the plans with Alberto nothing was to much trouble and from that moment each time we saw Alberto we knew our... More

Great food on the menu, if you fancy something else on the menu, chef is happy to cook it just for you which is awesome. If you fancy trying something new for a... More

Went there recently with my wife for her birthday after she had been telling me for ages to give it a try. What a fantastic 'real' Italian restaurant! The welcome by Alberto was such a nice touch and he took us to our table and gave us a description of the menu. The food was fantastic, I had a spicy... More

We went to La Biciletta with a party of eight and we were the only customers there, such a shame. The food is excellent, the service first class the chef/owner will do or make anything for you. The waiter was very freindly. As others have said, decor good, table cloths etc were spotless. The menu is extensive and varied, everything... More

Just got back from a most enjoyable evening at this local family run restaurant - Great friendly service & most important excellent Italian food lovingly cooked using fresh ingredients (the chef allowed us to look pre-cooking !). We only found it by way of another excellent review in the local paper ! Highly recommended !

Firstly, we used to be semi regulars at this restaurant and then we moved away. When we decided to meet up with some friends this was the first one that we thought of returning to. Our impression of this restaurant is completely different from the report from SusiB which in my opinion is a real spoiler report. This is a... More

We went there with high hopes and came away somewhat disappointed. Whilst some aspects of the food were okay the whole restaurant is in serious need of a revamp: from decor and furniture to crockery and table linen. The salad leaves from a bag and cherry tomatoes cut in half served with starter and mains were a joke. Needless to... More

What a fantastic place! This was our first time here but it definitely will not be our last. The food was spectacular and we were made to feel so welcome. Alberto was amazing. So knowledgeable and what a chef! Thank you to all of you. Dani & Graham Brentwood
