Description: Signatures Italian Restaurant and Grill is an ideal venue for large groups, families and couples alike with large booths and the cosy red room for romantic meals or special occasions. Our menu offers something for everyone whether you fancy something 'cheap and cheerful' or a succulent Fillet Steak (our Signature Fillet is a must). We pride ourselves on our great food and service by our friendly staff and were thrilled to be voted as one of the top 5 restaurants in Sunderland for 2012 by the Sunderland Echo. Adjoining is The Castle Bar, a modern yet relaxed bar which is ideal for enjoying pre or post dinner drinks.

Me and the Mrs visited Signatures tonight for the first time, considering we live less than two minutes walk away from it and its been open for a while. It was a nice little restaurant. Nicely furnished and decorated. The service was very good and the waitresses were friendly and attentive. The range of food on the menu was quite good and the portion sizes were generous. The wife had chicken which was a bit over cooked but the sauce and accompanying vegetables were nice. I had duck breast in an orange sauce with spring onion mash. The chips were obviously home made and very nice they were too. Finished with a piece of chocolate cake and that with a starter each of garlic bread with cheese and a warm steak salad, dessert to share and a drink each, the bill came to £45. Overall good value for money. Would visit again (it's only up the road from my house!)

I've eaten here on several occasions including full price meals, early evening special and Sunday lunch! All I can say is on Each occasion the food was fantastic, very well presented by nice friendly staff and cooked to perfection! Considering the small amount of time this place has been open it is slowly growing into an absolutely great asset to silksworth! Can't wait to visit again!!

Enjoyed a pleasant evening with friends.Really good food and service.The atmosphere was relaxed and you were not rushed to leave the table.Would definitely visit again, but must agree that although the seating is extremely comfortable, the decor is missing the Italian feel.

Just tried this new local Italian Restaurant. Mixed feelings... but food great. My problem is eventhough you can see the owner is trying it still looks and feels like a old social club. What i mean by trying, is the decor. Possitives, nice furniture, blinds, pictures and good staff. What is needed is the Italian feel, definitely get rid of the old tiled ceiling and the non italian music ie Mick Hutnell and Phil Collins. Got an ideal sized stage not too large would be ideal to show case live easy music. Stop locals wandering in dressed in tracksuit looking for "Dave"......not comfortable when eating your meal. More Italian feel with more pictures or ornaments hanging from the walls or ceiling. Room lighting too bright needs to be toned down especially in the evening. Cutlery and dinnerservice very nice but small things like faded number tags placed on the table. All in all pleasant evening but could be a lot more comfortable, given time i'm sure it will be a real asset to the local area.
