On arrival the restaurant looked quite Italian, but at the same time a little dated. Service was quick and friendly, but the food pretty average, really nothing special. They seemed to be trying to make up for the quality by giving massive portions, this probably isn’t the best way forward. The other criticism is the toilets, they smell and need... More

Takeaway very hit and miss. Some weeks very good but more and more disappointing. The salad is so last week, I throw better out from my own fridge. Need to also improve their phone system so customers can be heard.

For starters I couldn't have the starter I fancied as it had cheese in it. When I asked for it without cheese the waitress checked with the kitchen but the filling for the stuffed peppers had already been pre made so I couldn't have that and I ended up having boring garlic mushrooms in tomato sauce. I was also a... More

A great atmosphere, great food and attentive service. I had sea bass which was beautifully cooked. The Italian Connection is a real gem in Boston. Special thank you to Enza who looked after us. Highly recommended.

My partner brought me here as he said it's the best Italian in town. Couldn't say I agree with him. The staff where friendly and welcoming but the place was freezing and dead. The food was bland and unimaginative - maybe I just chose wrong. Wouldn't go back though.

Back to this traditional Italian restaurant after many years, and thankfully it's not changed one bit. Good, honest, authentic, Italian food at its best. Very lively atmosphere, and conveniently located for the town centre and the cinema, only a few steps away. I'd recommend the fillet steak Casanova, with Marsala sauce and pate, but any of the steaks will be... More

After being a customer of this restaurant for over 30 years how disappointed I was on Tuesday evening. I am not sure what they tried to serve us but it certainly was not up to there usual fantastic lasagne. Served on a dinner plate and looked disgusting. We just walked out. What is going on with this once very reliable... More
