The whole family enjoyed a meal here to celebrate an eight year old’s birthday. Great atmosphere, the magic tricks were enjoyed by both the children and the adults. Very welcoming staff, fun for the children and good food for all

Excellent Italian meal. Fabulous atmosphere. As a family Italians are our favourite. This is by far up there with one of our favourites. I had the best antipasti I have ever had! Reasonably priced. Staff friendly and accommodating (especially as they were busy and we hadn’t booked). Will definitely be returning.

Orlando's is not an intimate romantic Italian restaurant destination for couples, it is more suited to family meals out particularly those with children. There is much reference to the owner doing magic tricks, however on our visit which was early on a Saturday evening Orlando was a a bit too stressed to do any magic tricks, or even talk to his bar staff in a manner you would expect, in fact our initial greeting was close to the point of rudeness with no warm welcome in sight. The ambience in the dining room is very bright, I suppose so that the magic tricks can be seen when he does any. So if you want a family meal out or a group celebration of some sort this might be the place to go, the food is ok and portion sizes are generous, can't say much about the red house wine though as my glass was not fit to drink, and usually I don't leave red wine!

As I have previously stated during busy periods food and service has to take a priority over magic.I am so sorry you felt you didn’t get a warm welcome but it would never be in my best interest to be rude to customers or my wife who works behind the bar.Our house red is Montepulciano d’ Abruzzo and has been a favourite with our customers for years and although not to your taste could easily have been rectified at the time if you had mentioned it.Thank you for your review team Orlando
