What a great Italian restaurant, tucked away but worth finding. We both ordered from the specials board, the salmon and the steak, and they were fantastic. Great prices, amazing food and lovely wine, what more can I say other than if I was ever in Durham again I would return here. Highly recommended.

As a party of three we have frequented this establishment on several occasions and have been satisfied with the food and the service on each visit. The restaurant can be found on Saddler Street, there are stairs to climb, once inside the restaurant the staff are there to assist you, all are friendly, there is an air of Italian authenticity...

La Spaghettata is a very good restaurant located close to the University and the cathedral. It is located upstairs of a house, so not easy to find. The food was really excellent ! I took penne arrabiata. The penne were excellent ! One of the best Italian restaurant I've tested in UK. The staff was very efficient. The menu proposes... More

14 of us came here as part of our end of term outing. I had booked, but unlike lots of other restaurants we didn't need to pre order. All meals arrived together (I don't know how they do it!) and were all enjoyed immensely. Drinks service was prompt and staff polite, friendly and efficient. I will definitely return and hopefully...

We thought we would have something quick as we only had an hour before the show. We decided to have a Lasagne which was the best I have ever had they gave us Garlic Bread which was excellent. The service was very good. Would definitely go back again Thanks again

I haven't visited this restaurant in years and we decided to try it again tonight. The place could be easily missed as it's upstairs and the menu is in a doorway. It's quite a large restaurant but you don't feel on top of people. The staff were attentive and very polite. The portion sizes are big, we shared 2 starters,... More

I have visited this restaurant approximately 100 times over the last five years or so (I am new to trip advisor hence this is my first review on this restaurant) and I have to say the standard of food that I have had has been excellent each time. I more often than not have a pizza for my main and... More

It was our first night in Durham and being new in the area we didn't have a dinner plan. While strolling through the historic area this place looked inviting. We sat for dinner around 7pm and were able to get a seat without a wait. By the time we left at 8:30pm there was a line to get in. The... More
