We are never disappointed in Al Gatto Nero! We were excited to see some Sicilian dishes on the specials tonight. Don't miss the pasta alla Norma and the new menu. The staff are so friendly and make sure you have a lovely evening.

Having read good reviews and a few friends recommending the restaurant we had a meal there the other Friday night. The service was very good but unfortunately the starters of king prawns for me and mushrooms for Debbie were rather average.

Mez organised a 3 course set menu for us and we were able to decorate the venue in an Oscars theme. The food was just delicious, thank you Chef Carlo. The service was excellent and... More

Visited whilst on holiday as a party of six. Parked in the Tesco on the opposite side of the road which was handy due to the restaurant being on a busy cross roads with no immediate parking.

This restaurants location doesn't exactly lend itself to huge custom - it's pretty much on its own on a main road halfway between Branksome and Westbourne, not much else around it... More

Ok I am sure I have got the Italian all wrong but La Gatto Nero does not! The fixtures and fittings are perhaps a little worn but the restaurant rings with charm and enthusiasm for the social business of dining with company. On arrival you will greeted like old friends and presented with a varied menu full delights with pizza,... More
