Stewart and his crew work very well as a team and, whilst the lack of fresh air and windows does let the place down a small amount, the food, ambience, service and wine MORE than make up for the minor niggly points. The garlic bread is extremely good and the staff remember your name, which is a bonus other restaurants ought to realise is an important 'little extra'.

The themed Jazz and Gastronomic Quiz nights are also well worth booking in advance for.

Papa Cino's is a long-established and, rightly, popular choice for lunches, pre-theatre and evening meals either as a single diner, in a couple or a larger group of friends/family, etc.

If you've never been, give it a try,... it's easy enough to find, near the dreadful 'Buddies' on Dychurch Lane in the centre of Northampton.

This is a Northampton institution, and I love it.

The food is always great, and the welcome is too.

When we have some time to go out to eat, this restaurant is always right up there in the list of places that my wife and I would choose to go to.

Me and the other half regularly used to go here for the pre theatre and lunch menu. Really reasonably priced food that is really lovely.

This excellent italian is by far the best in Northamptonshire. The food is always top quality as is the atmosphere.

However the best part of this experience is the friendly welcome. Everybody is treated as a friend and you will always feel better walking out than you did walking in. Except maybe if you order two bottles of Bollinger. Whoops..........

Read description of restaurant on website as had been picked as venue for company Xmas meal.
I must admit that I was dubious at the claim to be a fusion of English and Italian, but must admit was pleasantly surprised. I had not expected a lot from this venue as meal was very reasonably priced how wrong I was exceptional value for money. The food was of a very reasonable quality and quantity and the restaurant staff most attentive.
The only reason I have down marked this by one star is that the meal I ha could have done with more gravy, the chef however did come out to see if we had enjoyed the meal and took on board comment. Will now have to revisit to check but will not mind
