We like to go to places that are recommended by others so that's why we chose escalera. Basically it's an Italian style restaurant probably with a Spanish chef. Layout is cosy with around 30 covers and decor is good. Me and my daughter shared a starter, good old prawn cocktail, it was a good size but obvious that the whole thing had been drenched in cocktail sauce, there was so much in it the lettuce was soggy, not good. The prawns were large and good, however a cardinal sin for a good restaurant is not removing the black stomach line before serving. My daughter had spaghetti bolognese and I had the same but al forno, it was good without being fantastic but my daughter said it was excellent. So 5* for my daughters main, 4* for mine and 2 * for the starter gives an overall rating of 3*. Easily fixed, just tell the chef to put less sauce and remove the prawns stomach.
