“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I had a meal here tonight. The service was very good but Unfortunately our food was not so good. Overall disappointing based on the previous reviews we expected more.

“Stupendous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Went for a meal here last week with my wife and sister. From the moment we arrived we were treated like kings. The food was excellent and the atmosphere second to none. Just wish we had a restaurant like this where we live. Superb

“Easy to find - good when you get there.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

My wife and I had lunch at La Torre yesterday. The welcome was warm and the service friendly and efficient. Very good starters (scallops and calamari). Both were very good; the calamari were small and tender – a true delicacy). Veal scaloppine had good flavour but, as so often with veal in England, were a little bit tough; not enough to spoil the enjoyment though. Valpolicella was excellent.

Definitely worth a return visit or two.

“La Torre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Exceptional service, friendly staff - recent price increases have pushed it a little high, but still great value for money

“lovely italian food with friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

i have been here on several occasions and each time i have been impressed with the food and service. there is an extensive menu to choose from. it is my favourite italian in melton. i rated it 4 not 5 as one time when i came with a large party it wasnt quite as flavoursome as usual or as hot. i would still definitely recommend this place though and will definitely be back again!
