“Definately not for Christmas”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

I was also very disappointed with the meal. I had Beef Stroganoff with rice, the rice was claggy and the beef was very chewy so I left it. The fish cake look uninspiring with a pathetic bit of green as an added extra, not gourmet. Also we had a very long table so it wasn't very sociable, and to top it all you had to go downstairs to get your own drinks which I think was terrible, and the dance floor was unusable. Sorry Tiggis you have gone downhill. Worst Christmas do ever !

“Very disappointed, poor food, very poor service.”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Was so disappointed with food but didn't want to make a fuss but staff asked why I had left my food and asked me "was it bland?" when I replied yes staff were extremely rude and very disinterested. Would definitely not recommend and will not be going back.

“Fabulous Atmosphere - Poor Meal”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant was packed to the rafters for Christmas parties and the atmosphere was fabulous. Most of the meal was great but 3 of us had Beef Stroganoff and the meat was so so chewy. It was either a very poor cut if meat or had not been cooked long enough. We advised the staff but they were not remotely interested. Such a shame as it spoilt an otherwise excellent evening.

“Italian Cuisine at its Best”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Busy lunchtime but usual efficient and friendly welcome to this city restaurant where we have coming for over 20 years.
Two course lunch for two for under £20 which included home made minestrone, beef lasagne and vegetable pizza was certainly good value for money.
Whether its day or evening meal the standards set here are never allowed to slip its genuine Italian cuisine at its very best.

“Excellent quality & value lunch”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

Lovely decor and lunchtime ambiance, spacious, aired and comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome, with prompt and attentive service. We used the 2 course. £9.95 menu, including a coffee, which offered a good variety of both starter and mains.
All the food was excellent, nice portions and well presented.
Will definitely return!
