“Lovely restaurant and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

Visited today as part of groupon deal. We were treated really well by waitresses despite being deal customers with children. Food was delicious and seemed excellent value even without groupon deal.

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

My wife & I went for the first time to Esca for dinner and had heard positive things from others about the quality. I thought the menu offered a good range of choices. Of our starters the Shetland mussels in a chilli tomato broth were plentiful and tasty however the opposite could be said of the minestrone soup. Our mains consisted of veal Milanese and pollo zafforano - the veal was a bit tough and the chicken was uninspiring. Service was decent and the experience could best be rather blandly described as "nice".

“Lovely Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

Myself husband and 4 yr old daughter popped in here for lunch. I used the itison voucher and swapped the wine choice for a soft drink. The food was lovely and service excellent. We had the pizza, risotto and the meatballs ( children's ) choices. There was no perceived negativity with using the voucher ( I have experienced this in other restaurants) all in all we really enjoyed lunch and will be back. Lovely little restaurant with good food and a nice comfortable atmosphere. We have been now a few times and would recommend it to others.
