I have been here 2 times now and each time has been amazing! The first time (in Nov 2016) I ordered the bruschetta for starter and spaghetti carbonara for main course. Both were delicious and a decent sized meal. The second time I went (Feb 2017) I ordered the 'gambas pil pil' which was very garlicky which it is meant... More

Went out for a quick drink which led to another. We called and booked a table. Met by friendly staff and talked through the specials. The starters were great. Main course of chicken breast wrapped in bacon and garlic sauce was brilliant. My wife had the lamb which was fantastic flavoursome.

Already been 2 Crosby & ormskirk did not disappoint. We were there just after 12 on Sunday. Staff were extremely pleasant. Had the steak. Lovely cut. Parking to rear. May struggle for parking on a Saturday. Now I have to decide between the 2.

We have visited several times before and doesn't disappoint. The food is tasty and varied. Service is efficient. My one negative comment would be about the bill. We queried it when we were charged for a drink the waiter accidentally spilt but on reflection when we got home I still think we were charged wrong Otherwise everything was great.

Went for evening meal with a couple of friends, the food was fantastic and a vast menu to choose from. They catered very well and helpful with certain allergies. Service was faultless.I would definitely recommend. I. would advise to book first.

We love Italian so thought we'd give it a try and ordered off the early evening menu. We were surprised at how much choice there was on that menu and my husband chose chicken livers and I chose calamari. They both arrived hot and were a decent sized portion and were tasty. We both had pasta for our mains which... More

My wife booked this as they seemed to have an very selection of wheat free pasta, ( as she has an intolerance to wheat). We booked for before 6.30 as they has an early bird menu. My wife tried to order a W/F pasta dish which was turned down, even though the menu stated they would try to accommodate anything.... More

We have visited a few times now, for the Sunday £10 offer, the meals are always tasty and there is a good selection for the children too. Even on the £10 menu the meals are still a really good size.
