Nice place, comfortable. Attentive staff, good service. Limited xmas menu and over priced but food was nicely presented and tasty, wine was pleasant but expensive. Only 1 male and 1 female toilet.

Six of us visited, after the theatre, this smal andl friendly Italian restaurant. Good atmosphere. The waiters were helpful, but became rather distracted when getting ready for the 8:30 sitting! They were not that busy to be honest, as the room is very small... and there were three of them working the floor too! Main courses were nicely presented, starters... More

Dear Coachman444, Thank you very much for taking time to write a review. I think you exaggerate to much on your review. We served the complimentary bread and olives on your table and our colleague went outside to collect his stuff and he came with small white plastic bag. How did you wait longer after you had your bread and... More

We came here early in the year and were impressed then, but felt that this time it was even better. My husband had the gorgeous scallops in a creamy sauce to start and I had the tomato and onion bruschetta which was delicious. I did ask for extra balsamic glaze which was charmingly brought to our table. The waiting staff... More

First visit we dropped in on the off chance to get an early table and were pleasantly surprised. Food and service was great. So to make sure this was not a "one off" we rebooked for a Friday night where we can only say this was equally fantastic. Food was fresh and superbly cooked and service was friendly and not... More

Came here for my brother birthday after hearing good reviews about the place. It was fairly busy as it was a Friday night and very noisy. Lots of choice on the menu and a variety of fish, meat and pasta dishes. I had the veal saltimobocca with fries which was very tasty. My brother chose the pasta oggi which had... More

I was there for dinner with my doughter and my partner after we came to visit her. We had the antipasto italiano and goat cheese with aubergine for starter and then as a main grilled fillet steak, scallops graten and a grilled swordfish with sides of vegetables and potatoes. Everything was cooked at perfection. We were glad food was not... More

I have visited this excellent Italian restaurant with just my husband, with a family group & also with a large group of friends last year for a festive meal close to Christmas. On each occasion the food & service was exceptional. The wine list is very good too. Staff are polite, friendly & discreet. I cannot recommend Oggi highly enough... More
