We visited Rastelli's on a Friday night. The restaurant was very busy but we were seen to straight away. We had the tomato and garlic bread starter which has to be one of the best I've had. A nice light base, with a scrumptious topping. I had the seafood risotto which was absolutely lovely, plenty of fish and perfectly cooked... More

We received a great welcome. This is a busy restaurant. You are lucky if you can get a table unless you've booked in advance. Luckily there was no need to book ahead on this occasion. We had a prompt service- although our starters arrived 10 minutes apart. Our Mains did arrive together. But food was hot and nice. We did... More

Visited the restaurant on Thursday evening with my husband and daughter. He had the spring lamb potatoes and veg. I had the lobster ravioli. And my daughter had pasta. The lamb was amazing . Melted in your mouth. The pasta was great, thin but full of flavor. My husband had sticky toffee to finish and said it was amazing. The... More

If your looking for a quick and tasty meal this is the place. Authentic Italian. Some reviews have slated this place ignore them if your looking for high end decor etc skip this as its just a simple place. Had the Penne pollo- chicken pasta... it was very tasty and the garlic bread with cheese as a side to share... More

Really friendly welcome. No pressure to leave although it was obvious they could reuse the table. Highly recommended but it's up for sale :(

My partner and I visited here over Easter weekend and after a failed attempt at getting a table the first night, we booked for the second night to avoid disappointment. The service was great and the food was good too. We both had pizza for our mains and for dessert my partner had chocolate cake and I had sticky toffee... More

We went here on a Saturday and three times there was birthday cheers. What on earth happened 18 years and 9 months ago? This is clearly a place locals go and judging by the well balanced menu and its sheer popularity, I can see why. We did the specials (spicy beef strips and venison). Nice house red. A perfect Italian... More
