The four of us ladies called to Al Fresco for lunch on Saturday and really enjoyed it. I have wanted to call in here for some time and wasn't disappointed. They only open 12 till 2 so we arrived around 12.20, which is a little early but there was no rush to eat. We shared a garlic pizza and then... More

Went to the restaurant on a Saturday evening in May. Party of 4. Upon entering could see if we quite busy but plenty of staff around. Wasn't greeted for a few minutes. When we was finally approached told our table wasn't ready for a few minutes but can wait at the bar. That wasn't a problem. Got our drinks and... More

It's a while since we've been to Al Fresco, but although the faces seem to have changed, the food was every bit as good as ever. The service was first class too; friendly and attentive without being intrusive.

The duck in soy sauce is amazing, hot, fresh and tastes amazing. I am going of only one dish I have tried on the 2 visits but each time it has been fab. Was a nice romantic meal with my partner. Service was good, then again it was early evening on a week night.

Staff were very attentive and polite most of the time. Starters came quite quickly but the wait for the mains for our party of 7 was a long time. My friend found a hair which was wrapped around her steak and asked for a new one. This was no problem but when the new one arrived we were told there... More

We visit at least once a month. The food is excellent value for money, especially the 'earlybird' meal deal. We try many of the pasta dishes and all are lovely and we love the chilli prawn starter. Well worth a visit.

Visited on Saturday evening as a party of 4 people. Called the restaurant at 5pm and got a table for 6.30pm - should have known then as this place used to be booked weeks in advance. The meal started off ok. We had mussells, ribs, bruschetta and meatballs, all were nice but missing small touches like finger bowls for mussells... More
