Went for an impromptu meal and was really impressed by the service, ambience and quailty of the food we had. My wife is asian and I didn't think she was going to enjoy much of the food but she did. We sampled about 7 dishes and each was superb. My particular favourite was the rack of ribs which were really... More

Good service from friendly staff, good selection of drinks and food and is nice to have something different as they are all tapas style dishes so you can try different ones to see what you like.

Visited here at the request of my eight year old for her birthday. What a disappointment! After hearing rave reviews I was quite looking forward to it. You can hardly adapt any dish and our lovely waiter admitted it's pre packed. I can eat food made last week from my own fridge! Saying that, I can cook it all better... More

We've attended Pesto on a few occasions now in the hope it improves but our experiences are always the same. We find the food is overpriced, cold on arrival (by the time at least every one gets a plate of the tapas they order) and the place is cramped/chaotic. Always disappointing.

Our party of 7 had a Sunday lunchtime visit. We were waited on by Louise, she was very pleasant and looked after us very well throughout! Whilst deciding what to have, we started with Mixed Olives and bread with balsamic vinegar. We each made 3 selections of food from the £8.95 and £10.95 menu's which we shared as a 'buffet'.... More

We all enjoyed the food and had plenty to eat the staff and atmosphere were friendly. It is a different experience but a good one, we... More
