Little pizzarente which serves crisp tasty pizzas at a very affordable price. Good house wine in carafe.

We used to love il Merlo and have been there several times in the last years. But this summer our experience at il Merlo has been very disappointing. We have been there twice in a week and had terrible service (dishes arriving at different times for each of us and after a long time), average quality food and very small portions (for the pasta dishes). The menu has never changed over the years, desperately needs a new twist and it's too long and confusing (as Gordon Ramsay would probably say). Also, prices are too high for what is offered. Dear Giuseppe (Il Merlo's owner): please, do something so that we can love your place again!

Great food, had the baked ravioli stuffed with ricotta and spinach covered in a creamy tomato sauce, my partner had a grilled steak which was so tender it melted in your mouth, the pizza margherita was incredible. House wine was pretty good!! Service was excellent! They offer an English menu. Highly recommended!!!!!

We had a lovely meal here on Monday 8th July. Food was really excellent and everyone cleared their plates, even my fussy 12 year old!
