Wife's birthday treat dinner at the Cori again.
Welcome great, service great, wine great, Morretti beer great, Food fabulous!
Tried different starters (and swapped half way through to try each others) Asparagus crepe with a heavenly sauce, also really yummy funghi dish....
Mains lovely, etc. all rounded off with rich espresso coffes and limoncello

Absolutely stuffed!
£10 tip well deserved!

“Dont go there!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

Very sad! The place really smells of damp and decay. Even the food tastes odd! And you will probably be the only person in there.....I was and it was a Friday night! Had hoped for much more and cant see how they keep going.

“Authentic Italian eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

Although it doesn't look like much from the outside, don't be fooled.

The welcome will be open and sincere, even if the owner looks like he is dressed for a quiet night in at home.

If you expect Pizza hut rubbish, then go to Pizza hut! This is real Italian food, created fresh and not just pizza and pasta.

Hoping to go this weekend again!

“Traditional Italian.....lots of food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

I loved this traditional and homely restaurant. The menu was so extensive I could not decide what to have. Hot freshly cooked food. The portions were really huge.....I had to explain that I was only leaving some because there was too much....not because it was not nice! The chef came out and spoke to us (Italian chef) which was nice. The staff were friendly and attentive (although it was a quiet night due to lots of snow)
