There have been many good reports on this restaurant but we were disappointed. The service was good, but the food was extremely oily and rich. It was loud within the restaurant so don't go for romantic dinner. The price was on the expensive side for what we ordered. The staff were very helpful though. Wouldn't go again, but it's worth...

I have had the pasta, rissotto and meat dishes each time they have been delish . The pasta ragu is to... More

We went to Bistecca with a friend and were a little concerned at some negative reviews. We had excellent service that was friendly and efficient. They were happy for us to sit over our meal for hours. The restaurant is noisy but that is a reflection of its popularity especially with large local family groups.The ambience comes from the restored... More

We have dined at Bistecca a few times now. On the first occassion, my plate of pasta was so salty I couldn't eat it. Thankfully the staff were quite attentive on that occassion and had noticed that I wasn't enjoying my meal. I told them the problem and they were quick to discount it from our meal and also provided... More

My partner and I came here based on all of the positive reviews but we are either missing the point or the diners of Abbotsford are happy to settle for a dining experience that is nothing short of disgraceful. Service was tired and awkward. Such bad energy. We had to ask for everything - menus, drinks, water, the bill. Everything.... More

We have dined at Bistecca a number of times since they first opened. Our first experiences weren't great so we had a long gap between visits. Lately though, we have returned and it has become a favourite. There is a good range of food, authentic pizza and pasta options. Good, friendly and Italian speaking service staff. Indoor and outdoor dining... More

I'll keep my review short as I wouldn't want to spend more time writing this than I did waiting for my coffee at the end of my meal - which may still be getting brewed, as it didn't turn up after 20 minutes of waiting. The staff were all miserable, apart from one really nice guy who took our order.... More

this local abbots ford eatery has good food, sharp attentive service and a nice feel in summer or winter. Lots of outdoor spaces for the summer add to the varied experiences.....and the food is good. Reasonable value for a family meal or a night out.
