lovely spot , we had a coffee earlier in the day and booked for the evening based on the menu we saw at the door, our fault really as the evening menu was totally different when we arrived and there were no pizzas and less pasta dishes, so not what we as a family had hoped for,

We managed to get a table for 6 after the recent England rugby game. Although the place was packed the service and food were superb. There is a lovely rustic authentic Italian feel to the place. The food and wine are very reasonably priced considering the quality. We enjoyed it so much that we went back again the following evening!... More

Osteria Pulcinella has a well deserved reputation for serving great authentic regional Italian cuisine with a good selection of wines, all at good value for money. The restaurant has a rustic feel with a warm and comfortable atmosphere, with friendly, professional and welcoming service. It has been consistent throughout its 20 years existence. I particularly like the calamari and the... More

Lovely place, really informal and great for a casual lunch with the kids. The children's menu is simple but excellently done, and the delightful all-Italian staff were utterly charming without being overly intrusive. Good simple Italian food in pleasant surroundings at a reasonable cost.

I've eaten here a few times, usually around a 'Rugby' trip, and never been disappointed. There is a wide & varied menu from pasta and risotto to Carne etc. all cooked to order and served with a friendly efficiency. This visit I started with Olives & Bread, then has the duck breast with cherry sauce & fried courgette, cooked rose... More

The pasta and main dishes are the best. I often think I can have a decent crack at Italian food at home but I'm not up to the standard of this place. Great staff, fresh food, cosy atmosphere and excellent value. I've probably eaten at OP over 50 times in the last few years :\

Delicious, beautifully presented, pleasant staff, fabulous atmosphere. A delight. We went on a Friday evening without a reservation at around 7.30 and huge place was lively with Italian music and a healthy number of people, without being overwhelming. We were sat by the window, which was excellent for people watching. Its location on Church Street makes the foot traffic on... More

Went there for a celebratory meal with my parents - my mum has coffee there one morning every week but none of us had ever eaten there. The staff were very friendly and professional - not intrusive but definately attentive - anticipating the water jug needing a re-fill before we needed to ask and so on. The meal was superb... More

A 5 star experience on Church Street! Could not fault the service (amazing staff), food (proper bruschetta followed by the special - homemade pasta with crab meat) or atmosphere (dimly lit, tables spread apart for privacy). I hadn't been here for a few months, and had forgotten how great it is. Will be back again very soon.
