Decided to try the new breakfast menu. Staff friendly though not experienced. The breakfast was obviously precooked and heated up. plates were cold. Had to send bacon back as it had come pre cooked straight from the fridge. The whole meal was cold and beans were dry. When we wanted to pay and complained again, nothing was done about it.... More

I really do not know where to start. As a family we had contacted the restaurant to see if they could host a family celebration for 30-35 people of which they said that there would be no problem. We submitted pre orders of starters and mains for the group. We arrived on Saturday to be presented with a squashed seating... More

I like to review fairly and honestly. Having been to Da Gennaro a number of times this year (and submitted a positive review previously), I'm afraid that last night wasn't really up to scratch. We booked for 6pm and arrived on time to an otherwise empty restaurant - however, before long two large groups began to arrive. Luckily we placed... More

Great classic Italian food with friendly staff. Prices are reasonable and there is a wine choice. By arrangement you can bring your own bottle. Great food cooked and served by members of the Italian family.

I eat at this restaurant regularly and recommend it to other people. The 2 course lunch and early menu is very good value and the food is really good . Staff are always pleasant and accommodating.

We booked to go to this restaurant tonight as a family get together. I clearly stated that we were using the voucher when I booked weeks ago. When we arrived we had an extra guest to our party unexpectedly- we asked if this was ok when we arrived and were met with a very negative reaction by the lady we... More

Staff were lovely and helpful when ordering. Portions are on the large side making them good value for money. The food was good, was a bit disappointed that I couldn't have the seafood risotto as they had run out of squid, but the mushroom risotto was lovely.

I was really exciting to come here as I love italian and I was celebrating with my partner. Starters were average, but my horror was the main course, i had a seafood pasta dish, to start it was overly peppery,however this was the least of my worries. I went to eat a prawn and it literally exploded in my mouth... More
