“Well worth a try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We first visited this restaurant on a Groupon Voucher. However, you got no sense of being a second class citizen.

The welcome was warm and convivial. The restaurant was busy for an early evening midweek, but that did not stop the staff giving you there full attention and visiting your table regularly to check if all was satisfactory.

The food was as good as the welcome. There is a large choice to suit all tastes. The al a carte menu was slightly on what I would call the expensive side but not overly so for the quality and service.

Overall a delightful evening and one we shall repeat.

“Amazing authentic little Italian ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

My boyfriend and I were staying at the eye kettleby lakes on a short break and decided to venture into the village on our first night to find somewhere to eat. What a good find.

We were warmly welcomed by a friendly waiter and seated immediately. Although it was a Monday night, it was still quite busy and the atmosphere was fantastic.

We were given bread and oil as soon as we sat down, ordered a bottle of house red (which was also lovely) and shown the daily specials not long after which we both ordered off. The food was beautiful and fresh and the service was faultless.

We'd love to go back here but are only staying a few days, it really was outstanding in service, food and atmosphere.

“A local Italian with excellent service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Dropped in on the off-chance, late Friday night. They squeezed us in (after enjoying a glass of wine at their bar). The place was heaving - it is a very popular place!

The food was both interesting and well cooked and the service was prompt and effective.

“Cracking restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Went to La Torre for lunch today, had a groupon voucher which I had mistakenly bought thinking it was our more local La Torre in Coalville, however I was relieved to see the great reviews here and we too had fantastic service and delicious food. Just as we do at their sister restaurant in Coalville.

“Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at La Torre. We were warmly welcomed by a very friendly waiter who was very helpful and informative. We ordered drinks which were brought quickly, we had three courses and couldnt fault anything, it was beautiful. We will definitely be dining there more often.
