We had a group for Dinner and the service and food was excellent . Mixed starters and mains between us but overall a great experience, well catered for in a modern environment . Busy enough to create a good ambience and atmosphere for a midweek night.

We're almost becoming regulars at Cini because we love it so much. Not just the excellent food ranging from great Italian pasta and pizza dishes to wonderful specialities. Food is all prepared from their view-able kitchen area and served with by great staff in a friendly and efficient way. The restaurant is always kept meticulously clean and the proprietors and...

Thank you for your comments some of which we believe to be inaccurate. Let me outline the sequence of the events as per our records: The table was booked for 7pm and the guests arrived punctually. You and your guests requested a drink on the sofa where we served olives and savoury biscuits, which are not suitable for anyone on... More

We had a very warm welcome from a number of the staff on arrival. The decor is contemporary plus the entire restaurant was spotlessly clean, so a great start. We arrived early and having ordered drinks we were asked if we would like to sit at our table instead of waiting at the bar and we chose to do just... More

Asked if the bartender can do a Mojito and was told he made fabulous ones. Ten minutes later - "we have no fresh mint so is it ok if the bartender uses basil?" Who ever heard of a Mojito made with basil??? Declined and asked for a gin and tonic. My friends asked for a Rosé and a Proseco. Fifteen... More

But, I can assure you that we use four different kind of gin, 2 different kind of tonic and I am sure you the gin, the tonic and the mojito. Regarding the... More

Visited for a family birthday. Service was ok but the portion of the food was tiny, under cooked and totally over priced. The lamb rack was full of fat and uncooked. Would not recommend to family or friends! Stay clear! Would have been better off going to a chain restaurant instead like Prezzo's...
