Visited the Fat Italian for the second time this week to celebrate my mums birthday. Once again excellent. The food is very good, flavoursome with huge portions. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. This is my new favourite Italian. They have some good offers on too. I recommend booking as its so popular. Will be back soon!
