We go to this restaurant regularly as it is local to us and the food is always consistently good.The staff and service are excellent and the restaurant has an up-market feel, with plush decor and spacious surroundings.

We stayed in Stoke on Trent for one night, and after reading all good reviews decided to go to this place. Phoned around one hour before and booked table. When arrived we been seated in waiting area where ordered drinks and had to wait for around 10 minutes for table to be ready. The restaurant allready looked very busy. The interior is quite simple, but clean and tidy. By the time we ordered food ( this was around 8 o'clock) there was around 10 people waiting in lounge and around another 10 by the door waiting for tables. ( i think we were lucky to get it). For starter we had 4 different meals and we shared everything, only the lamb kebab was average taste and dry, everything else was ok. For main meal i had Alessi lamb special, which was vere very good, as well as slow cooked lamb and chiken tikka. All of us liked it. 4 stars out of 5 only for waiting time. It took for us nearly 3 hours to have dinner also our waiter was smoker, so every time he came to the table, his clothes smelled cigaretes, as for non smoker it wasn't very nice.

Went to the alessi on Thursday night for a retirement meal for a work colleague. The food was very good and the interior is very well decorated. The staff were all young and very friendly. I would recommend this because all the food was very fresh and very well presented

We recently visited the restaurant for the first time. I must say I had been told by many people that it was nice and I had not heard a bad word about it.

It didn't disappoint!

The food was exceptional. We actually had a great selection as we chose a number of smaller dishes to sample as a group to get a better feel.

The staff were really helpful and it genuinely felt like they cared (which in many places now is rare).

Finally the atmosphere and decor were a pleasant surprise.

I really can't recommend this restaurant high enough.

Give this place a try, I would be surprised if you don't enjoy it!
