“Fabulous as always”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Consistently good food in a fabulous restaurant served by mine host Michel. Whatever night you visit you're assured of a big welcome and great service. If you've never visited before you're in for a treat.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Ate here with a party of 4 last Saturday evening. Very,very busy restaurant but seated on time.
Manager and all waiting staff encountered were friendly, polite and helpful and all worked very hard and efficiently and with a smile on their face.
The service was excellent with nice professional touches such as taking coats, topping up wine, discreetly checking if everything was ok and knowledge of menus. They also booked the taxis for us when we left.
I was particularly impressed by my main course of Saltimbocca while other members of the party had fish and pasta dishes. Decent value for money at £125 for four including a round of drinks and 2 bottles of wine. Only real criticism that I would have is that the bar area for pre-dinner drinks is way too small which meant that a lot of people had to stand whilst waiting for their tables.
Very good atmosphere and this was obviously helped by the fact that the place was bursting at the seams with people enjoying themselves.
Would definitely return but would try and go straight to the table rather than trying to get a pre-dinner drink in the inadequate bar area.

“Buzzing Place with Good Food”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Visited on a busy Saturday night, every table was taken and the atmosphere was buzzing.
I had breaded goats cheese followed by sole fillets with italian potatoes, the food was very nicely presented and very tasty. Service was efficent and pleasant.
Total bill for four was £125 icluding two bottles of house wine and we all had two courses.
Worth a visit but could do with a larger pre/post dinner bar area so you can relax.

“good food but something unusual.”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

hi.i visited this restaurant with my girlfriend and we had a lovely evening.good food,good atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff.when i paid there was an issue.
usually when i dine out i always use to ask to waiters if they like to get the tips in cash or in the card.the waiter told me it's the same but the real issue came when i asked him if he was making good tips working there.the waiter told me the staff get only 5 pounds of tips a evening as most are collected by their management.that's very appalling.i cannot believe customers leave tips to reward hard working people and,instead,the money of the tips ends up to the owner of the restaurant.i would be pleased to hear from the management what they are going to say.shameful

7 of us enjoyed a Saturday evening at Puccini's. Very enjoyable night, pasta with a mushroom sauce was delicious. Everybody loved their food and the staff were good fun. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for an authentic Italian!
