I had no idea this was even here but am very pleased that I managed to find it as it's a great little restaurant! I've only been for lunch or breakfast but am looking forward to trying it out for dinner soon!

The food quality here is impressive. The pistachio crusted chicken with herby mash is to die for. Price is reasonable though not cheap. We shared a starter and both had cocktails with our meal, which were both excellent. The bill was £48 which is more than we would normally pay for a meal out but it was well worth it.... More

Thank you very much for the positive review. Glad you enjoyed the food so much. Sorry if you felt the service was a little slow but as we cook everything from fresh then this will appear to be the case sometimes - you obviously thought the wait was worth it ! We do indeed have a room up the back... More

Where to start! Passed many times and decided to pop in for quick lunch. Ordered one shot (weak ) latte. Arrived, strong and tepid. Sent it back, replacement arrived. The reason why tepid coffe is served is because squat glass 'tumblers' without a handle are used. Coffee now at the correct temperature however two napkins required to wrap around the... More

Yes where to start ? Perhaps best to say "Isn't it great that all of us are created a bit different!" We actually use Segafredo coffee - a rich strong, smooth Italian blend, so if you are looking for an insipid, weak cup of coffee, we are probably not the best place . We serve our lattes at 65 degrees... More

We decided to visit the Atina Kitchen for breakfast after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. To be honest it got off to a bit of a shakey start. When we walked in our welcome was a rather ungracious ' sit down and I'll get to you in a minute'. We did and several minutes later when we were just about... More

Glad you enjoyed it . Not too sure if you saw that we have a back room and an outside courtyard, so we are not that small ! Always good to get such positive comments from such a discerning reviewer. We look forward to welcoming you back for dinner . Thank you More

Quick visit back to Chester after 12 years away - booked Atina at Open Table. Service and food excellent - what makes this place stand out is the staff. Would not hesitate to recommend - a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Lovely place to eat with great decor, food was well cooked and service great. Loved the ceiling decor and unusual lights. Menu was slightly limited would have thought more pasta and pizza dishes would be available but will def return

Thank you for the positive comments , really glad you liked the place. We do try to keep our menu varied to appeal to as many tastes as possible but as we cook everything from fresh, we obviously cannot have a very wide ranging menu. We look forward to seeing you all again soon More

Visited on Sunday lunchtime for lunch with my husband. I ordered the lasagne after seeing other reviews on here and my husband ordered the burger with mozzarella. Wow-the food is amazing, so fresh and tasty, the best lasagne I have ever had. My husband loved his and the service was great. The decor is really modern. Such a great place,... More

Really pleased you enjoyed the Italian food - praise indeed for the lasagne. We think it tastes a lot better made from beef shin (family recipe) rather than with mince. Glad your husband loved the food too . We look forward to you both becoming regulars More

Really enjoyed our evening here. Great food, good atmosphere and really great staff. I had sea bass with fried gnocchi which was delicious and my husband had breaded lamb breast. Both were perfect.

The breakfast here made me come back the day after. The food was sublime and the setting was cute and friendly. The menu was given to me inside a 1985 NatGeo magazine which I kept to read through my breakfast. The decor is borderline genius and the staff are incredibly friendly.

Description
Enjoying & sharing great food, drink & conversation with family, friends & even strangers (at times) is where we take our influence from. It's how we grew up. Although our roots are firmly in Italian cooking techniques, we love all cuisines & cooking styles at Atina Kitchen & this is reflected throughout our menus.
