“Very Pleasant experience”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Having just walked out at Prezzo (next door) due to appalling service, we tried Caffe Uno.

Was met efficiently at the door and immediately shown to our table.

Very nice ambience inside the restaurant and having ordered drinks, our food order was taken within two minutes of sitting down, which we appreciated.

Food was excellent, bruschetta for starters and chicken piri piri was really good.

My wife had a Pizza, which was both large and wholesome, with fries as a side.

Total Bill including drinks £27.

Pleased to recommend!

“Shockingly awful service!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Average chain menu food, served in an average chain location, all to a very average standard. Have visited on several occasions previously and generally know what your getting, and leave without complaint. However, on this visit the waitress was awful. Rude, surly, impolite and appearing simply not to care how her actions were received. This is the first time i have not left a tip. Never again.

“Average just about sums it up.”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We have visited this restaurant 3 times. The first was OK, the second was awful and the third time was just average. The decor and ambience is fine, the waiting staff are pleasant and relatively efficient but the food is below average really. I feel they need to get a cook/chef who actually knows how to cook and not just grill things and slap them on a plate which is the impression we got of what we received. This place is not cheap - £5.20 for a small glass of Sauvignon blanc is the sort of price I would expect to pay in an independent good quality restaurant and not one which is part of a chain. Over £10 for a piece of chicken and a some mushrooms and 9 - yes 9 - individual raw spinach leaves. I don't think we'll be visiting this place again.
