I have been to Simply Italian many times for lunch now and have found the food to be excellent every time. I also have many takeaway lunches when I am working in Medway and again, they have all been very good - and I am not a pasta lover. Last week, I could not decide between my usual favourite, the chicken pasta with goats cheese or the meatballs, so they told me they would surprise me....they brought both on a very large plate! And charged me for one portion, what can I say.? Excellent food, excellent service. If you want a la carte, Michelin starred then go elsewhere, if you want tasty food, good value, busy restaurant, ( high food turnover so you know it's all fresh) with friendly staff, then this is the one for you. I don't live local but it's well worth the 30 minute drive. There have been many poor reviews written about Simply Italian and I can honestly say I have enjoyed my visit every time. Maybe they should go to Sainsbury's and buy a similar pasta, which with sauce, cheese and garlic bread will set them back about £6/7 or you can enjoy freshly cooked pasta for around £8 plus extra for bread and be waited on and eat it freshly made!
