The Italia at the Hope & Anchor serves good standard Italian food. Service is always excellent even when really busy. Recommend.

“Good food”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Had a nice meal of pizza and chips and waitress service was prompt. Food arrived reasonably quick, the only thing i could fault about the meal was the amount of chips we were given, for the price paid i did expect more than a small handfull, but they were really tasty! Also im not sure on the idea of allowing dogs in.

“Lucky to get a table in this busy restaurant”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We have noticed this restaurant when passing by but never tried it. Last night we called in, on the off chance, to see if they had a table for two. How lucky we were.
The restaurant was buzzing with diners and people were waiting for larger tables to become free.
Our starter, main and home made ice cream were delicious. The service was good too.
Although we didn't have pizza, the chef making them deserves a medal for his non stop production line during our visit.
We look forward to going again.

“Proper Pizzas in a Stone Oven”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Decided a stroll along the beach and some fresh air would be a good idea and the reward was a meal at The Italia afterwards . Phoned up and booked a table the day before because we wanted to eat at 430 pm and it was a good job we did because they had a lot of reservations . The waitress showed us to our table & took orders for drinks and starters fairly promptly .
Shared a garlic bread pizza and some olives to start followed by 2 piccante pizzas one with extra sweetcorn for main courses . The staff were very friendly and efficient - the restaurant has been tastefully decorated throughout my only reservation would be putting carpet on the floor - the pizzas were nice and thin with lovely topping and cooked to perfection . If you fancy something more adventurous there is a blackboard with fish of the day dishes as well as crab and lobster .
Will definitely return - Thanks
