“Stunning Food & Excellent Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Although Settantanove is only a tiny Restaurant, nestled in what is the wrong end of the town, my husband & I both agree that it is by far the best place to eat in Ilfracombe. We have eaten here on a few occasions and are never disappointed by the service, food and ambience of the restaurant.A big recommend to anyone wishing to have an enjoyable and reasonably priced meal!!!

“Excellent value quality food with friendly service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Booked a table her for my son's seventh birthday- he is a big fan of pizza. We were given a lovely table in the window with an uninterrupted view of the Ilfracombe Carnival which was due to pass down the High Street. Don't be put off by the location of the restaurant- it is at the scruffier end of the High Street- the interior is decorated in a bright modern style and you could be in Venice or Soho. The starters are not to be missed and are superb value even compared with what we are used to in Leeds and the Yorkshire region.The pizzas here are made with all fresh ingredients and were excellent. My wife's spaghetti Bolognaise was also good and a bottle of house white at £12.00 went down well.
Desserts were also good with Tiramisu at £3.50 and kids ice cream at £1.80. We had a terrific night and were able to see the whole carnival procession comfortably seated and with a glass of wine in hand.
Overall a strong recommendation for this belter of a small restaurant, so much better than some of the stuffy pub restaurant meals we had had in the area.

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

We went in August 2012 and it was fantastic. Food was delicious, service was friendly and efficient. It's only a small place but the tables aren't too crammed together like other places. We've been to Italy on numerous occasions and the food here was on a par with anything we've had.......

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

We popped out for a take away pizza as our 2 year old was a bit sleepy, but as soon as we got through the door, the friendly staff interested him, so we decided to eat in. The food was delicious and highly recommend, went out of their way to make us welcome. Great Pasta and Pizza. Americana Picante far better than the alternative American Hot from that Express place.
