“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

We have been coming here for years. We always have a lovely meal, the welcome is always warm. The staff are attentive and warm. The lovely lady In charge is the best bit. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. We always come here for special occasions, a night off from the kids or even with the kids.

“Mamma Mia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Went there with my partner and his aunt and partner. From the moment we walked in until the moment we left the staff were friendly and attentive. The food was gorgeous. I had veal it was cooked to perfection. Only downside was the people on the other table thinking they were something out of footballers wives flashing cash around and platinum credit cards and talking a load of vajazzle. Would totally go back.

“Newly found and loving it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

For some reason we’ve only ‘found’ The Flying Pasta and have since returned many times.

It’s not a particularly large restaurant however it has a really enjoyable vibe and the service has always been excellent.

They have a 3 course set menu most nights of the week which has a good selection and is at a great price but the á la carte menu is so vast we’ve always selected from there instead.
All of the dishes are extremely well presented and delicious - my husband loves their Polo Milanese and enjoys it so much he’s struggling to order something else!

As this is such a popular restaurant always ensure that you book in plenty of time so you’re not disappointed and enjoy!

“Tutto Delizioso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This restaurant has been a firm favourite of mine for some years. So this was an obvious choice to celebrate my partners birthday. On a cold winters night we received a very warm from mama and all her staff. Both the service and the food was excellent and a special mention for the 'Cherry Amerano' ie cream sundae, it was delicious. Can't wait to return soon.

“Made our Christmas Eve special...and delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We came for dinner here on Christmas Eve as a group of 15 and were not dissappointed! the restaurant is really well decorated and was very much in the festive spirit!

Being a big group on such an evening i did not have particularly high expectations on service, however the staff were great! They recommended the perfect amount of garlic bread to share for starters and ensured that all of the main courses came out at the same time piping hot!

One of the party were dissappointed that Ostrich was off the menu - but when placing our order the delightful waitress (i imagine maybe one of the owners due to her keen interest) informed us of Bird Flu in south Africa which was reason for them not having any. The party member then opted for the Veal by recommendation and was not dissappointed!

I had a gorgeous scallop and king prawn tagliatelle which i thoroughly enjoyed! All of the mains were very reasonably priced given their ingredients and large portions - my friend beside me opted for the Carbonara which was £6 and the best she had had in a long time!

All drinks were reasonably priced and the service impeccable - all in all a fantastic experience, well recommended and will definitely go back!
