“Good atmosphere, good host and staff, good food...what more can you ask for ?”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Was invited to join a friend who is local and eats here regularly...I can see why. Didn't even look at the menu as was recommended the Kabelou (S African white fish) from the specials board. Good call. Excellent waiter and a friendly visit by the owner/manager? Good value as well.

“Our Sunday favourite”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

If you are looking for a friendly environment as well as tasty and well priced food, look no further. Rob and Ivano run a super relaxed and ultra friendly restaurant. The place is always busy. The pizzas are great and so is the pasta pollo. Rob always has a few decent wines to tempt you. Warm and cosy in winter and fully opened up in summer. Enjoy it...we always do.

“Authentic Italian atmosphere and cuisine”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Polpetta's owner has kept it small despite constantly being full and so has kept it personal and the service outstanding. The food is outstanding and it all tastes home made. I love Roberto's bread sticks.
