This was the best restaurant we visited in Lyndhurst. Excellent choice of dishes (including extensive specials board) and very tempting desserts. Combine this with a great atmosphere and friendly service and one can see why La Pergola is so popular. I did find the wine list a bit limited, although the Gavi that we had was very good.

We ate here on the the of Jan. The car park was heaving and we were lucky to get a table on spec. What a fantastic restaurant. Service was great - atmosphere as well - but the food was truly excellent. The seafood pasta (which you must try) was the best I have ever had. The wine was great (try the Barbera) and the bill was reasonable. Will definitely return to this excellent authentic Italian restaurant. What a find...

We ate here on Saturday evening. The place was packed at just gone 7pm and we were glad we booked and I would suggest doing so.

Our waitress was lovely and the people say around us were also chatty with was also nice. The menu is not huge but it had everything I would have wanted. I always struggle with main courses at Italian restaurant because I always want most things. The fact you can have a smaller version of a main course pasta dish as a starter eased that issue.

The food was lovely and we didn't have to wait too long considering it is packed. Drinks were reasonable in price. The meals were a little bit pricey but we paid 70 pounds for a three course meal with two rounds of soft drinks as a couple. So all in all not too bad.

This is a fine place to eat and we would go back.

Book, you need to.

This is a restaurant that delivers great Italian food.

It needs to get a more up to date wine list, there are so many great New World wines far better than traditional Italian wines.
Having only 1 Rose on the list is out of tune with the market.
The wine we selected was six times what you would pay in a supermarket. The beer was local and well kept.

Great selection of starters, though some were pricey. All were good.

Mains were comprehensive. If you want veal perfectly cooked look no further. But pay for it.

Leave room for dessert, the waitrons walk around the restaurant encouraging you to choose from over ten superb puds. You'll pay for it.

We skipped coffee as my backside was numb from the old over used seats used across the restaurant, need for a bit of investment TLC.

Restaurant was too crowed with furniture and found it difficult to move around other guests.

Coped well with both large and small tables and felt well attend by three lovely ladies.

All in all if you can pay £40+ per head well worth it.
