“Darlington's best kept secret!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We enjoyed a 3 course lunch here today! £25 for 2 including a soft drink and a cappucino each. The food was very traditional italian which was the main reason for us choosing this restaurant. We'd looked at the menu online before heading out so knew exactly what we wanted. One thing I particularly liked was the menu was limited, I'd rather a choice of 8 starter/main course/dessert than pages and pages, it takes me long enough normally to decide what I'd like to eat hence us looking at the menu before we left the house! I had bruschetta for starter, lasagna for main and chocolate mousse for dessert, my fiance had calamari, linguine with pesto and panna cotta.... everything was perfect! Service was excellent, atmosphere was calm and comfortable with plenty of space between the tables. We will now be regular visitors in the future. We highly recommend a visit, we're sure you won't be disappointed!

“Another pre-theatre Gem”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

It is always nice to start the night with a pre-theatre meal Foffano's provided this last night. We had not booked but would advise it. Seated downstairs the atmosphere is very rellaxed, service is excellent and the food great. Early dinner offers are very good value and high quality with choice of starters, mains and deserts or an extensive al a cart with wine list to match. Worth a go
