Caffe Tirreno is a regular filling station for me, my climbing mates and my girlfriend. It's an informal dining experience with a menu to rival any quality restaurant, exceptional value for money means you can enjoy your meal knowing that it's not costing a bomb. The only problem is though, it's nearly always packed full of people not only dinning... More

Good service, good food and very reasonably priced for the quality. Got a bowl of olives to start, expecting the usual Zizzi chain skimpy portion, only to get a full bowl of okay quality olives. The main was lovely and very filling. Recommend for a nice night out.

This cafe is located virtually opposite the turning to alnwick castle and across the road from the playhouse. I'm gluten intolerant and it was good to read at the back of the menu that they will try and accommodate all dietary needs. I went off the snacks page good size portions tomato and mozzarella was perfect as was the olives... More

This is an unpretentious restaurant giving good value for money. It also doesn't take bookings so you can always get in with a short wait unlike other restaurants in Alnwick

Our friends and ourselves went for an evening here after a very disappointing week of bad hotels and terrible meals. The staff, food and ambience were excellent. There was a wonderful choice of food. The portions were large and extremely tasty. The wine was excellent too. We would certainly recommend. this restaurant. Thank you.

Ordered a take out. Arrived to find they had cooked the wrong order after checking with me twice on the phone. Redid my order, making me wait only to bring out what has to be the most tastless arrabiata I've ever eaten. No veg in there, just a slimy red sauce. Pretty sure it was microwaved. They had set the... More

This local Italian Cafe has a limited menu, but what we had was very tasty. Very reasonable price wise, just don't have a dessert. We were disappointed. Good wine menu & friendly staff.
