Seven of us had a lovely meal,service was excellent and the food came quickly.Quite important when eating with children. Lots of dishes with swops between us.Italian 'Tapas' an oxymoron but fun. Our waiter was Bica who was splendid ,patient and helpful. We all enjoyed our evening.

We popped into Pesto last night. Have been to their restaurant at Trafford so was a bit surprised to see how it looks here. Beautifully decorated and a warm crackling fire near the bar. Food was excellent and fast, my favourite was the mushroom risotto, it was really creamy and, as it should, tasted of mushrooms! The staff were lovely.... More

We were very impressed with the decor of the restaurant and with the choice of food on offer. We ordered several dishes and to be fair the waitress did say we could have them all at once, which was the norm, or we could have them brought out in courses. We should have had the second option as by the... More

We really enjoy Pestos thanks to the broad range of dishes: meats, fish, veggie etc. The tapas format is ideal for a family with favourite dishes and willing to experiment. Very smart, plenty of space between tables and warm atmosphere combined for another successful evening.

Visited today after my sister complimenting food so booked for 5 adults and 2 children. Arrived at the restaurant and sat with the rest of our party. After waiting for 10 minutes we finally ordered our drinks with a not so friendly waitress. After ordering our food and receiving meals, all of our tapas meals came out quite quickly however...

Went last night. First of all felt a bit uncomfortable walking in, we had a table booked, no one greeted us so we walked to the bar and waited for ages before someone acknowledged us. Food was average, I suppose what you expect from a chain, and it was even a bit cold. I had a pint of EPA which... More
