“Don't bother booking a table.”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

We had a table booked last night at 7pm which we booked one week in advance. We arrived 15 minutes early only to be told that our table had been double booked and the people sat in our booked seats hadn't even ordered their mains! The staff did nothing to compensate us, and instead tried to offer us a cramped table at the back. The reason we booked was to be sat in the window section!
We had been looking forward to coming to Pizza Margherita, which we always visit for special occasions such as birthdays & Christmas, but after this unacceptable service will not be returning. They have lost a loyal customer here.
We ended up going to Etna's which ended up being tastier food anyway and better service even with Christmas crackers provided!

“very poor”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Booked table for my youngest daughter's 18th. They offered to decorate the table etc. We arrived on time table still being used by previous occupants who had been there two hours. Total confusion we were sent upstairs to wait. When table was available there was no decoration nothing at all. I spoke to the manageress she offered to don balloons and a banner- my daughter would have been mortified so declined, The service was atrocious the food equally . it is strictly pasta and pizza. The portions are small the choice very limited and I opted for two starters cause didnt fancy the mains.The tomatoes in the salad were squashy and tasteless the tuna equally tasteless not even the quality of basics range.The manageress spent the whole evening avoiding eye contact- wonder why. Paid up and left after being offered as was everyone, else a 10 per cent discount to use after Xmas- needless to say I declined we will not be going back. This totally spoilt the occasion it was memorable for all the wrong reasons.

“Average”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Have been twice now, the second time the service was extremely slow. Took 15 minutes just to get a menu. It may have been alright if our waitress was new, but we where served by her last time. The food is good, but often find i still have room left. Prices are okay, if slightly on the expensive side. Lunch menu seems to be cheaper

“Fantastic Pizzas”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

The restaurant came highly recommended by a family member, and i have to say i was not let down. It is a busy place, but even so i was take care of promptly, food and drinks came quickly and the service was great. The pizzas served here are exactly what you'd expect a pizza to be like.

“Timeless treasure!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

It was such a delight to revisit this old favorite from my University days, the francescana pizza & salad was just as delicious as I'd remembered. The staff were very friendly; pleasant, light, airy surroundings and excellent value as always.
