What a great idea. Italian tapas was a first for us but the food AND service were superb! In addition it was a very special occasion for us and we were treated to a bottle of fizz by the kind management. You must try the ribs!!

Make sure you book Friday or Saturday. Open friendly atmosphere, bustling with chat and not music! Staff appointed to specific tables with an excellent knowledge of the menu. A Tapas menu where you can ask for your courses to be served in 'waves', ie you don't get all you ordered in one go with something going cold as you may... More

Stopped off here to break a long, boring journey on the M6, previously used to go to the Miller and Carter but they seem to be going backwards. We went for the 3 courses for £10.95 - sort of an Italian take on tapas. All courses arrive at the same time so try to order at least one that will... More

We have visited Pesto on a number of occasions since opening in various party sizes - couple, family, group of families and group of friends. Each visit has been excellent with the staff, service and food perfect. The lunch time deal is excellent value. Highly recommended.

Food was good as is tasty tapas, portions are a little on the shy side, size wise. Price was a little higher than I thought was fair. There are price offer schemes, although, I guess one has to pressure staff to get the best deals, which the pesto brands', probable, massive profit margins depend upon us savvy consumers not doing...

The decor is lovely which in my opinion made the atmosphere feel relaxing. The food was tasty and of a great value. The service was brilliant, our waitress was very friendly. We received 2 golden tickets with different offers on for another visit before 22nd August, you can't see what the offer is until you go to pay your bill.... More

Great atmosphere and stunning deco. The food is of excellent quality being fresh and very tasty. The service was ideal waiting long enough to select our food and wine from the wide and varied menu's. This being our first visit we appreciated the patience of the staff. The only adverse comment I would like to make is that as we... More

I went here for lunch with my niece and her young daughter, the food was excellent, it was great to be able to try lots of different foods and each portion was a good size so we didn't need to order too many dishes although the young one eat one of them herself! The place and atmosphere are excellent and... More
