My wife and I took a couple of friends for dinner. When we arrived the restaurant was very busy, there was a birthday party of about 15 people on the table next to us and another large party on another table. Normally this means that the food is going to be a long time in arriving. Not here. The food... More

Very nice, had heard good things about this place so thought we would try it.. the service is lovely, and staff really friendly.. The food is lovely and to be honest more choice then I had thought there would be, I love the idea of ordering a few little dishes then one big meal but it isn't to everyone's taste.... More

The concept of Italian Tapas is done superbly giving a brilliant dining experience. Plenty of vegetarian choice from the menus. You can choose to have any dishes from the menu, or -as recommended- you can pick 3 dishes from a menu at £8.95 or £10.95. I'd recommend the mushroom bruschette and garlic bread with cheese. Staff are friendly and attentive,... More

Our first visit to Pesto and it won't be the last. Staff lovely and explained all about the restraint and it being tapas. Recommended 3 each but we ordered more as the choice was sooooo good and we couldn't make up our minds. Food was lovely and so tasty. We couldn't believe the amount of food we had ordered but...

Went on speck about 15.30 on a Sunday afternoon. Plenty of room but soon filled up. Our waiter was really lovely and explained that the menu was tapas and about the options. This was ideal as I can't usually make my mind up but was able to sample 6 dishes 3 each for me and my husband. There was plenty... More

Had a very enjoyable evening at Pesto earlier this week. My husband had arranged a family get-together and Pesto was chosen as it was a half way point for everyone concerned. We had never been before so didn't know what to expect but on entering we were very pleased with our choice of venue. We were greeted by large smiles... More

I've eaten here a few times now and the food and service are absolutely wonderful. Great Italian food at great prices, definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. It's got a lovely atmosphere and the staff are fantastic. The afternoon tea is particularly lovely and a nice way to relax and chat in lovely surroundings.

We had visited the Dicconson Arms over the past four years or so but last time we came it was closed so never went back. Turns out that 15 months ago (I think) it turned into Pesto. And a right good job they made of it. I feel we have been missing out! Now an Italian Restaurant offering a delicious... More
