The wait for food was around 30 mins but that was understandable as it was busy. What arrived was not great. I know this is a chain and some... More

Excellent meal with choice of three items from the early evening menu. Really generous portions so two can share and then feels like you have had a real feast!

We visit this Pesto on many occasions and the food and service is always very good. The staff are friendly and helpful. There are many dishes to choose from. Beer and wine is a little pricey. Would definitely recommend.

Predominantly Italian cuisine my experience was very positive. The food was very nice even though Italian dishes are not my first choice. This was coupled with a high standard of service which overall convinced me that this is a restaurant I will revisit numerous times.

Barman was very friendly and helped my wife to choose from the cocktail menu, clearly knew his stuff when it came to cocktails! When we were seated to eat the service was first class, food was fabulous, piping hot and... More
