“Servizio e cibo fantastico”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Surely this ought to be ranked in the 10 ten of Chester Restaurants.
Took a real gamble last night and requested a table for 5 without booking and we were immediately accommodated in what appeared a packed restaurant. (Always book in advance, but leave a space for us) The food, as detailed on a number of TA reviews, is freshly prepared using great ingredients and is simply phenomenal. Ask an Italian where they would eat and it would be here. Gamberonni made to order is something special.
This restaurant has a real buzz and an atmosphere unsurpassed in Chester.
Never understaffed with the food and drinks served in a timely manner by extremely friendly staff.
Yes the birthday celebrations can be tedious however maybe that's what makes for such an infectious affable atmosphere. The new refurb is of really high standard retaining much of the original features to good effect.
It's simply Fantastico.

“Wondeful Restaurant”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Step 1 book a table do not try and turn up without reserving a table.
Step 2 go and enjoy a great meal.

I have never seen a restaurant so busy mid week. The food was so good possibly some of the best Italian food I have eaten. The service was great with just an amazing atmosphere but be warned about 'Birthday Celebrations' in the restaurant they are special and very loud. The food may be excellent but the food is not expensive and the menu offers a great variety of freshly cooked food.

“Best Italian outside of Italy!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Went here last night with my girlfriend to see if we could get a table without a reservation. We were lucky enough to be seated within five minutes. The staff were very friendly, always on hand if you needed anything and the fact it was extremely busy didn't stop them for ensuring that everybody was attended to quickly. The atmosphere made you believe you were in a family run restaurant in the heart of Italy. The food was outstanding, everything was brought out in a timely manner without having to wait ages between courses. This is now officially our favourite restaurant in Chester and cannot wait to go back. We will book next time as its very popular and we were lucky to get a table without a reservation. If you like real Italian food, you will love La Fattoria :)

“Lovely meal”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Very clean and fresh.Staff were friendly and service was great. While it was child friendly and the staff were lovely with our little one there was no child size pizzas on offer. Waitress did say she could box up the leftovers if we had wanted.

“Great value!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

I came here recently with family and we had a great meal. The restaurant has a very family feel to it which is lovely and it was very clean! The food was very Italian and tasted great! It was great value for money, we had a three course meal and it was relatively cheap! The staff were very polite and friendly and the portions of the food were great! It's a minute from the center of Chester so may be overlooked but definitely take a visit if you're looking for some good home cooking!
