“very busy, great value food, overpriced drinks, indifferent service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

Large well established restaurant. Half price menu means it is very busy nowadays. Food is well cooked and well presented and good value but drinks are expensive.

Helen on the bar is great, consistently friendly, welcoming and efficient. I have eaten there many times,but the last time I ate there it was a Saturday night, and most of the waiters were young kids. They were barely competent and didn't know anything about the food they were serving and didn't really care whether you received any customer service at all. They were miserable and only just this side of rude. Probs better midweek for my next visit.

“Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

Went with the family. All wanted to pay seperatley which caused a bit of a problem as we were told to order drinks at the bar! But as we wanted to pay credit card, seemed to cause some confusion as the staff did not understand!

Other than that staff are friendly! Food always good. Been several times now, and always have delicious, hot food.

The staff are good with children. Could do with having a kids menu though.

1/2 price meals all day!

“Rubbish - never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2011

Went with family for my daughters Birthday. The most miserable and ignorant staff,
Took birthday cake in for our daughter and the staff ate half of it !!. Didnt realise until
we got home with the remains of the cake. The food was terrible, meat was really dry,
and the strangest looking lasagne I have ever seen. Plenty of other nice italian
restaurants in Poulton. Avoid this one, we will be doing.

“Poor excuse”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2011

This italian now called "italian Bistro" used to be called "Papas", then "Gusto" keeps changing its name but still the same owners.....
The young staff they have got are very courteous and polite but the owners are just down and out rude... its not just a one off as i have been to a few partys here over the years and they just dont change.... the food is sub-standard and the so called half price deal a swizz... the menu prices having been hicked up to accomodate this.....

If ya want a good italian with great food/service and atmosphere... got 2 mins down the road to "Rico's"...... its the best!
