Booked a table for 2. date night ... tonight.. arrived to find it busy but still few tables available. Welcomed by a lovely waitress lovely smile and politeness took us to our table . Orderd bottle of red merlot. Chose our selection of meals off menu.all I can say is were to die for cooked to perfection an absolute delight. Starter and main timely sent to table 10 out of 10. Too full for a dessert but opted for liquor coffees. Yup warming and contented finished off our evening . A great little place for fantastic food and hospitality. Well done to all staff for a great evening .be back again real soon

We visited here in December 2015 when it was Cara Mia and I gave it full marks. I was aware it was now La Torre and as we have dined in the La Torre in Bedlington a few times. We decided to give it a go here in Blyth. We've always been happy when we've been to the Bedlington restaurant but I'll never go back to the Blyth one. I'll keep the details to the point. Pretty drab decor to be honest was my first thoughts and no atmosphere at all. Seemed to wait ages between courses. Finished our starters and the plates were left on our table for about 20 minutes.

The pizza was rubbish! You could tell there was no point in asking for another as it was clear that's how they make them here. The pepperoni was literally put on top of the pizza uncooked. That sliced pepperoni you get from the supermarkets in the packets. Urgh it was vile. Staff completely disappeared for ages when we wanted more drinks. Had to go into the kitchen to actually find someone to get us a drink! That's a first and we eat out more than we eat in!

Even the Limoncello was awful at the end so I can only presume it was a cheap one. The bill was definitely not reasonable for what we got. I have to say I don't enjoy slating places at all. Sometimes I prefer to not bother reviewing if somewhere is bad. This was so bad I couldn't not review it to warn others! It's safe to say that we will never be returning again and what a shame from the first time we went when it was Cara Mia.

Service was slow. Staff kept disappearing. Took them ages to take our order and the food was disgusting. Too much oil used and whoever made the carbonara linguine obviously thought the carbonara sauce was made from just flour and milk!!! Would rather eat at McDonald's than this restaurant again
