Must be nearly 20 years since I have used this restaurant and no wondering why it took me so long to go back! Well priced, good food, lovely atmosphere, good service. We went on a Saturday night, staff were very attentive, very extensive menu and a lot of the pasta dishes you could have as a main or starter which was great. Can't fault the place, average prices so you dont get caught and the house wine very good at just circa £13 a bottle. Def recommended and must go back soon!

Loved everything-The food was stunning, the cheesecake was to die for. They even went to the effort to decorate our table with Birthday confetti because it was my husband's 40th Birthday and put Birthday banners up on the wall for him-we shall definately be returning.

I wouldn't entertain going to this restaurant again. The service was slow, the food and wine mediocre. Far better Italians like gallinis in Swansea

A thoroughly enjoyable experience, eating at Topo Gigio is like being invited into someone’s living room, with all the cosy ambience and relaxed friendliness that implies. Topo Gigio’s has a great wine list, we chose a bottle at around £18 and it was delicious. The lemon sole (two pieces, a very generous portion) was fresh and succulent, the potatoes and vegetables also very good. Friendly service but not ‘in your face’, and although we were the last table to vacate on a Saturday night, we felt under no pressure from the staff to leave, in fact they told us to take our time. Would definitely return.

Many visits to this restaurant always enoyable , genuine Italian chef cooking very good food , attentive service , lovely atmosphere , only thing I would change would be the deserts but that is often a feature of Italian restaurants , but by the time you get to those you are quite replete anyway .
