First of all I would like to say how nice both the starter and main course was, food wise we had no complaints. However I can't say the same for the service, we first arrived and we politely asked if there was a table for 2 available, the girl then looked at us, then her clipboard from across the room...

Our granddaughter is a fussy eater and, after cooking during all our week's holiday, we decided to walk her up to this restaurant to see if she would eat anything on the menu so I could have a night off! She decided on a pepperoni pizza so we went into the restaurant during happy hour which is 4-5.30 pm. We... More

Extremely nice Italian food, with a lot of local seafood too. I had a hot mackerel salad to start, followed by lobster linguine. Service was good. Prices are more expensive for some of the seafood, but other dishes are more in average price range.

We booked for bank holiday weekend, we arrived early and were told our table wasn't ready but we could have drinks next door. Our table was made ready really quickly, table service was really good and staff were lovely. The food was really nice garlic bread, pizza and pork/beef main. Canny night out and a decent price

Charming little restaurant with an open kitchen and wood fire oven. Seafood ravioli was nice aswell as the pizza my husband had. Was hard trying to get the attention of the waiters so we were left without drinks for a while. Apart from that everything was good. Would come back for the food hoping they improve their attentiveness.

I called up The Italia and booked a table at 1.30pm on Monday to celebrate our first wedding anniversary as being due to give birth any day, an evening dinner date doesn't suit us that well at the moment! Booked the table over the phone but not once were we told about the following... 1. The Italia restaurant doesn't actually... More

Luckily the waitress told us that whilst get didn't have a table a couple had just asked for their bill so if we would like to get a drink from the bar she would come and get... More

Good food but the service was lax and we had to wait 20 minutes before our table was ready and never complained. However, when the bill came we asked if the drinks we had before the meal could be deducted off the bill we were told a firm no as we never brought it to the attention of the staff... More

Booked a table the night before, when we arrived the restaurant was fairly busy. We were shown to our table and given the menus then told there were NO STEAKS AVAILABLE AND ONLY 2 PORTIONS OF RAVIOLI LEFT, bearing in mind they advertise steak on their menu as their specialty, my husband would normally order the steak but decided to...
