Really really enjoyed the food, I wasn't that hungry but I couldn't put my fork down. Just the right portions too. One of the younger waitresses though kept looking over and it felt like once we had eaten she wanted us out quick, that was the only downside. However the food was worth while

I went for a meal with a friend and 3 small children (aged 2 -7). The staff were helpful and attentive. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to expectations and was quite frankly not that good. Whomever wrote that the food here is authentic Italian, has obviously never been to Italy. (My family are Italian before you ask). My... More

Rastellis accommodated our group's booking time well and greeted us pleasantly. Service was attentive, genuine but not over-bearing. Food was really good especially garlic mushrooms and the pizzas. Straight forward, unpretentious, good Italian food.

Whilst staying in Bowness, this restaurant was about 5 minute walk from our B&B. We had an evening meal on a sunday and food was very nice! We failed to get a reservation on the sunday, so do book a table in advance during peak season. Nonetheless, the atmosphere was good and so was the food.

Out wandering in Bowness and stumbled upon Rastelli's - what a find! We had their happy hour deal ..... he had the spag bol (very tasty but not overly generous helping), I had cannelloni, oodles of luscious cheese sauce over two very fat parcels. Garlic bread was unusual (thin pizza base with olive oil & crushed garlic) but tasty. Servers... More
