We returned here for a family meal, knowing the atmosphere would be relaxed and the children would enjoy there food. We were seated at the back in a quiet corner - not sure whether this was deliberate but was nonetheless a good spot for us with a toddler in tow.
Our waitress for the evening was pleasant and looked after us well. A side plate for us to share our food with the toddler was happily provided, as was a special small flatbread later. We didn't have to wait long for our meals and we thoroughly enjoyed everything! As before, I do think it is time to change the menu, however the selection remains good.
Also as before though, I continue to be surprised at how quiet the restaurant is. The Saturday night before Mothering Sunday, at 7pm, we had no problem getting a reservation and the restaurant was only half full. It can't be price or quality, which only really leaves promotion.

We eat here everytime we visit Trentham as you can rely on good food, good service and a relaxed atmosphere even when the shopping areas are really busy. The vegetarian antipasto was really tasty, my husband commented we should have just had two! I had Cannelloni which was divine, he had the special, Duck Risotto. Another great meal and not too expensive. Thanks!

We are regulars to Trentham Gardens and have dined at the Italian on a number of occasions.
The staff are always very friendly and helpful, the service we have always found to be good.
Menu choice is extenive and we have always found the food to be very good.
The restaurant is located at the rear of the main garden centre building and we have never pre booked just turned up.
They happily accommodate young children; high chairs are available and there is also a limited kids menu selection at the front of the main menu.
Overall great option, would highly recommend.

This Restaurant is inside the Garden Centre at Trentham Gardens. Outside the Garden Centre opening hours the entrance to the Restaurant can be accessed down the left hand side of the Garden Centre.

Opening times: Mon & Tues 12noon - 6pm; Wed-Sat 12noon-10pm; Sun 12noon-4:30pm

Everything was freshly cooked, there was even a pizza oven.

We booked a table for 18 people. Our party consisted of different families and our gymnastic coaches. We were staying in the Premier Inn at Trentham Gardens and this was the only place nearby who were willing to let us reserve a table on a Saturday night for so many people. We got copies of the menu during the afternoon and gave them advance notice of our orders in the late afternoon.

On the menu there is an under 10 yrs of age Children's Menu for £4.25, this includes a small sized Pasta or Pizza with juice carton, carbonated drink or semi skimmed milk and locally sourced ice cream. There is also a menu available for babies from the Baby Deli Organic range.

For the adults there are starters from £4.25 to £6.95, antipasto platters for 2 £12.95, risottos £10.95, pastas £7.95-£11.95, pizzas 8" or 12" £7.95-11.95, salads £8.95-£13.95, sizzling skillet dishes £9.95-14.95 or you could mix and match 2 half portions of the skillet for £15.95.
I had the Homemade Salmon Fishcakes £8.95 - delicious, there wasn't a crumb left on my plate!!

Various selection of wines, Italian beers and the usual soft drinks.
Lovely selection of desserts and ice creams.

Great service, we even had Christmas crackers to pull (this was on 24th November).
Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a lovely meal. There is a lunchtime offer on certain items on the menu and they also accept 10% Trentham Leisure Discount cards on the a la carte menu.
