I do not like to write negative reviews but just felt that our meal at Grafiti was so bad last week I had to warn others. Waiting staff miserable, dark, no atmosphere. Food was not fresh and could tell frozen. Waited 25 mins for drinks and the meal was tasteless. We decide to try graffiti after a bad experience a... More

Excellent Italian restaurant run by locals - not a horrible chain ! Nice relaxed atmosphere with friendly servers Charlotte and Nicola. The Amatriciana dish is the best I have ever had - better than anywhere in Italy and we have been to several places in Italy over the years ! They also offer prosecco by the glass which many restaurants... More

Visited for dinner recently with my family. We were a last minute booking. It is many years since I have been ito Graffiti as we tend to go to another Italian restaurant. We were all very pleased with our food and the excellent service. We will definitely be revisiting very soon.

This restaurant is for people who appreciate the personal touch and enjoy a nice evening out and not rushed cramped chains with staff on their iPhones doing their bare minimum serving unimaginative food which is easy to replicate. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable with "nice" customers. The food is definitely fresh, homemade and individual.

Another excellent dinner here, service is as outstanding as always. When u arrive, your greeted with a friendly smile n seated. The food is out of this world, I strongly recommend you try the food before adding salt / pepper. The puddings were light & tasty, if your full but still want a pudding - go for the orange &...

Graffiti is our favourite restaurant - we have been coming here for 19 years. The staff are friendly, the service ius excellent, and the food is outstanding - even when we ask for gluten-free Italian dishes. Always welcoming to our wheelchair-bound guest. Top marks!

This is a pleasant restaurant owned and run by the chef, Neil. The menu is varied and the quality is the best...just like home cooking! The tables are well spaced to give more privacy than normal. The service is quick, efficient, and non-intrusive but attentive. They do takeaways but not deliveries. Children are given crayons and may draw on the... More
