Came here for a birthday celebration and had a really lovely time. I found the staff to be very pleasant- and quite amusing as my table, one-by-one, butchered their language by attempting to read our order off of the menu! The restaurant was attractive and...had a relaxed atmosphere. I found the menu very large; and a little overwhelming!- but it's always nice to have lots of choice. The food was delicious and fresh and my table all left empty plates. I have gushed about this place since I went and would love to return and bring others along to experience such a lovely little place!More

They squeezed us in without a booking and the food was fantastic. I’d recommend the Chicken Milanese and my partner had the penne pollo e spinaci which was so good (I stole a bit when she wasn’t looking) that I’m going to have to get...it myself next time. Reasonable prices and squeaky clean and efficient (important during the current restrictions). Por favore, Flying Pasta!More

Went for a family meal to celebrate two birthdays. The food was wonderful. The service was friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The staff all wore masks and social distancing was observed. I had the fresh mussels and they were the best I have...tasted in a while. Would certainly recommend this little gem . Even bought out a dessert with two candles and played Happy Birthday for us. Splendid eveningMore

It was our first time visiting Flying Pasta & to translate, the steaks was mouth watering! My Wife and I love food made with real care and attention and particularly enjoyed their set menu Monkfish & rib eyed steak. Their service was excellent from start...to finish & we were so impressed, that we bought their gift vouchers as a present for our newly married Daughter and Husband to treat themselves at their leisure. We sat outside as the sun set & it rounded off a perfect week & day for us & we will return as the earliest opportunity to sample more delizioso cibo! Ben fatto e grazie mille!!More

We were so glad to have found this gem of a restaurant, one of 3 Italian eateries in a row! The staff were so friendly and welcoming as well as all wearing masks. Huge menu to choose from but also specials on the board and...a weekly set menu. Mum and I shared a Caprese garlic bread, which was a pizza style dough with garlic, basil, tomatoes and mozzarella on top. It was delicious and huge and we took half of it home. We both opted for pasta and neither of us were disappointed - steaming hot and very tasty. We even decided on a dessert! The restaurant was busy and had a good vibe. It’s decorated tastefully and the toilets were immaculate. There’s parking on the road right outside if you’re lucky enough to get a space or a pay and display car park just around the corner.More
