I've been eating here since 1998, I love the service and the staff. The menu is simple but great quality, the steaks are wonderful and the pizza is just as it should be. It's always a treat for friends of mine who live out of town...we love it!

Thank chris h

This restaurant has been around for years and I am surprised how it keeps going as its never busy.

Recently went for lunch in a large group and the food was very average. Due to time constraints, we all had mains only and they were nothing to write home about with less than generous portions with a serious lack of toppings, fillings and flavours.

The inside of the restaurant is very dated and has not changed for years and the location is out of the main shopping areas.

The likes of Ask, Pizza Express, Pizza Hut and Prezzo are far better quality and the independents elsewhere in the City far superior

I certainly wont be going back in a hurry unless the restaurant moves with the times and has a massive overhaul in all respects.

We tried to book various other restaurants for a Saturday night but all were full so we ended up at Operetta, in the past I have been and it has always been above average. We arrived at 8.30 restaurant was half full, not a good sign on a Saturday night near Christmas. Service was poor, had to ask for drinks all the time, we asked to order 3 times before orders were taken. Brushetta and starter were lovely although waiting over 30 mins. Then main course another 30-40 mins. Steaks were average and the vegetables non existent, 2 carrots and 3 potatoes on each steak for nearly £20. One friend ordered King prawns and the strangest meal turned up, obviously normal prawns (from frozen) with a hot sauce and iceburg lettuce and again hardly any veg. We wanted to continue our night so we paid our bill and went for a well deserved drink. We felt this restaurant is very overpriced for the quality and we were very disappointed.

For theatre nights a post event supper at Operatta is an excellent choice. not been personally for 18 months, though friends have and it's as good as always. Availabilty and space prevent 5 stars.

A party of 7 of us visited here having booked a table for 8-45pm, we arrived at 8-30 thinking we would have a drink in the bar area first.
the bar was full so we were seated and told we would be ok to wait for a drink first.
having waited for 10 mins no one approached us to take a drinks order, so we sought them out and where told they where running late so we proably wouldnt be seated for our meal until 9pm anyway.
we decided to visit a nearby pub for a drink and said we would return at 9pm for our meal.
on returning we sat at our table , waited anouther 10 mins for drinks and menues to be issued.
eventually our orders where taken , but we did not actually receive food until 9.55pm, with no apologies or any excuses, if it hadnt have been someones birthday and their choice to go there i feel we would have walked out.
service wise this was a terrible experience, in my opinion why take a booking if you cannot accommodate?
that said food wise it was lovely and tasty but having waited so long it spoilt your appetite.
