“Always welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Been going here since it opened. Just wish we went more often.
Do yourselves a favour and go.
Clean, tidy and always fairly busy when we go.

“Nice food and good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Great value for money and food was nice. Had the 2 course dinner special, food was out in a decent time and tasted nice. My only complaint was I felt like I was sitting in someones living room and not a resturant.

“A fantastic restaurant. Simple yet perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012 via mobile

I'm fed up of the usual array of multi national branded restaurant chains trying to pass themselves off as authentic/just like a-mama used to a-make.
We were stopping at the nearby De Vere Village Hotel and had resigned ourselves to eating at one of their pseudo Italian restaurants (which is side by side with a traditional British pub and a Starbucks coffee, for Pete's sake)
We saw the menu and it looked pretty awful so did a local search via this website. Armbands came out really highly so we thought we'd have a short drive out. Glad we did. Location is a little strange but we were made very welcome by the staff. The place was quite busy and the specials board looked great.
I had homemade chicken liver pâté wrapped in bacon with a redcurrant sauce and cheese bread......gorgeous!
I then treated myself to a fillet steak with a tomato, anchovy and caper sauce. It was superb also. My wife and two kids were all really pleased with what they chose and the drinks were excellent value.
The waiter was extremely polite and took time out to chat to the kids.
Very happy with the bill and would definitely recommend Armandos to anyone looking for proper Italian food.
