Good food and good choice but can be very noisy

Good food but bland decor which doesn't set any sort of tone. Prices not too bad but like so many restaurants it is all hard surfaces so when noisy with live music everyone shouts to be heard and it becomes too much. Go mid week if you just want to eat and talk

My young daughter, wife and I thought we'd try this place for Sunday lunch. Our friends came a couple of weeks back and told us that the food was great (with really good portions too). I have to say that we were quite impressed. It's just been done up / changed hands, it looks really impressive, clean, sharp, yet welcoming... More

Went for Sunday dinner with my wife and grandchildren. Food and service was excellent and staff very accommodating for the childrens' meals. The decor was lovely and the restaurant had a good overall ambience. Will definitely visit again.

We visited on a quiet Sunday and were taken with the new decor which although quite green, now means a little bit more privacy for diners and a little waiting area by the bar. We normally dont have a starter just a couple of cheesy garlic breads to share among the 2 of us, big mistake because instead of the... More

My wife and daughter, together with her boyfriend, celebrated my 47th birthday at Azzurro on Satuday evening and we had a very enjoayble time. The food was outstanding, the service excellent and the ambiance of the new decor was a refreshing change to the old 'magnolia' ! Well done and see you soon Steve and Jane

Have not been here for a long time and did like the refurbishment. Much quieter. However, for a restaurant you could once rely on for excellent food sadly this is not now the case. Whitebait thrown on a plate with some dried up sad leaves on top of which sat a dish to tartar sauce. 2 of our party ordered... More

Had dinner here on Sunday with my family but was very disappointed with the service. Whenever the waitress came to the table and we asked her anything she had know idea what we was saying and had to call another waiter over to translate in the meantime our food we were paying for was getting cold. Food was good but... More

This is the 1st time we had been to the restaurant since the change of owner and refurbishment. The restaurant now looks warm, welcoming and intimate and it is no longer like sitting in a vast empty space. The steak I ordered was one of the best steaks I have eaten in a restaurant and cooked to perfection. The staff... More
