“Reasonable food, not so reasonable service”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Having had difficulty in finding somewhere to dine, we managed to get table for 8:30. The food was reasonable but nothing special. The main disappointing aspect was the poor service. There was a 10 minute gap between my starters, and mine was almost thrown on to the table. As soon as had finished our main meal we were asked if we wanted the bill, no mention of dessert, coffee or drinks.

“Rastelli's Perfection”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We went to Rastelli's in Bowness last week with friends
We will certainly go again it was perfect
Food fantastic as was the service We were greeted and shown to our table given our drinks and a sharing pizza within minutes we had starters then mains followed by coffee and amaretto each
It was delightful and very reasonably priced I would recommend Rastelli's for a great meal and I am looking forward to eating there again in the near future

“TORTELLINI”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

I ordered Spinach & Ricotta Tortellini, the sauce was amazing, but when I cut in to the slightly tough pasta, I found a blob of green stuff, that can only be described as SOLENT GREEN. It was horrible, when I complained about it, the waitress said I will inform chef, chef ignored her, he never came to find out what the problem was, there was no apology, or discount on the bill, would I go again, NO.
