Been here a few times now and as ever the food was excellent. Only let down was when two of the waiting on staff (a guy and a girl) were very obviously taking the mick out of someone on our table and laughing at us and not in a nice way. This then ended our evening on a disappointing note... More

This is one of my favourite places to visit, be it with family or friends. The staff are always welcoming and very helpful, especially mark. There is a great menu and specials available to suit everyone. The 3 course menu available on Thursday and Sunday is excellent value for money. When I visit I always have to have the tiramisu,...

Came here on a busy Friday and was pleasantly surprised. Big selection on the wine list. Thoroughly enjoyed my bruschetta starter and penne carne for main. Will have to come back to try there pizza's and puddings as they looked delicious too!

We've visited the Italian Cottage a few times in recent months and always have a good meal in a relaxed atmosphere. The food is consistently fresh and well presented.

I had never been here before my recent visit. I had heard only good things, and I'm glad to say they were right. The restaurant isn't huge, so often restaurants will cram in as many tables as possible until it's like a table game of Tetris and you're constantly bumping into other diners. This isn't the case at Italian Cottage,... More

We come here quite often, the staff are very friendly and the food is excellent. We dined tonight in 'happy hour' on Wednesdays which is any pizza or pasta for £5.95 great selection and good value. Busy so make sure you book in advance.

The restaurant was full on Happy Hour Wednesday (actually the Happy Hour covered the whole evening). Excellent value on main course pizzas and pastas. Whilst the starters wern't included, they consisted of large portions. Plenty of choice. Good service. A warm welcome. Lots of parking available. Well worth giving a try....if you can find it!

Food was fantastic and the 3 course meal was amazing value for £13.95. Drinks were expensive but l suppose that's how they make their money. The staff member that served us had left his personality at home and was borderline rude or didn't want to be there, not sure which but decided not to leave a substantial tip. Would go... More
