Rushed birthday meal

We felt very rushed on our meal last night. We had booked for 6pm. There were 4 of us and we had starters and mains. As soon as We said we didn't want deserts the table was completely cleared and the bill given. I had to ask for my half drunk wine back! As we were paying they were already... read more

My and husband and I booked in for Sunday at about 6pm. The restaurant is small but also has an upstairs, and although most tables were occupied, you didn't feel squashed in. Service was exceptional. Very attentive staff and very quick service. The discount 3 course menu offered at certain times provides impressive choice and a very reasonable price. For... More

Visited Italian Cottage a couple of Saturdays ago. Booked in for 8pm as a table of 6 (3 couples) . Couldn't complain about the service, the young waiter was very prompt indeed. Most of us ate off the specials board, I had the pork belly to start and fish to follow for main and it was very tasty indeed. Everyone... More

It's very sad as in the past I have enjoyed this resturaunt and feel there... More

We sought the Italian Cottage out after reading the reviews on here and are glad we did. We had a great time and, if we return to Chorley, would go here again. Although only just after 6pm the place was bustling with customers and busy staff serving them. The reason for this became clear when we got the bill and... More

We visited the cottage last night for our second visit and once again we had a really good meal. The restaurant is small but welcoming and the service is efficient and friendly. The food was once again of a great standard and the prices ensure real good value. I would definitely recommend the Italian Cottage if you are looking for... More

A party of 4. Not rushed to get served and pushed out for the next dinners. Plenty of choice on the main menu as well as the specials. *I chose the sardines as a starter, very tasty but as expected plenty of small bones, I had a perfectly cook steak (blue) as a main followed by Cartmell Sticky toffie pudding....

Fantastic meal. Went off the specials board for my starter and had the garlic and chilli king prawns which were excellent and had the mexican beef dish off the main menu which was extremely tasty. Shared a litre bottle of the house red (Italian) which was very drinkable. Bill came in at a reasonable price and the service was also... More
