We booked a table for four and the booking was not entered in the book! However, as busy as the restaurant was they went out of their way to accommodate us and we were not disappointed. I just wish that they hadn't run out of mussels! The food was superb and the service outstanding. We all had a fabulous meal and would highly recommend a visit. Double check your booking though!

Very child friendly with a brilliant play park for kids. The staff were friendly and nice and the restaurant has an authentic feel, it was very busy, you must book because we walked past it several times a day as well as eating there and it was always full.

The food was good, getting towards very good, little things let it down. We had saltimbocca which is my favorite and I couldn't cut bits of the veal and it was served with orange and fennel/dill on the plate, which is odd!There was lots of it however and loads of side veg. Maybe our experience wasn't as good as others have said on here because it was so busy, which it was, rammed. All in all I felt our £110 bill for two adults and a child (£26 wine) was a little steep for what we received but it was good, I don't want to give the impression it was poor, I'd give it another go......

We have visited La Pergola many times over the last ten years, sometimes just the two of us, sometimes with our kids and other times with our friends and family.

The food quality is EXCELLENT and really consistent. If you order a particular favourite dish it will always come out the same way. They are really quick to serve, even when they are super-busy (which they almost always are). We have never had any sort of problem with service; the team there are attentive without being obtrusive.

They will probably bring around the fresh range of puddings made on the premises. Whichever you choose you will likely not be disappointed and the portion sizes will ensure that you don't leave hungry.

The menu prices are mid-range - you can find the usual selection of pastas and pizzas plus lots of nice steaks, chicken which are a little more expensive but well worth it.

In summary, La Pergola is a great restaurant. We always get a great meal with friendly service.

We visited La Pergola today for lunch and we were so pleased we did, the good food was very good especially the deserts. I can certainly recommend the roulade, the choice was so good it was hard to choose. We have passed this restaurant so many times and we wish we had visited sooner. The staff are also very friendly.

I went there on Easter with my wife. Had to make reservations as the place is busy. Arrived craving lasagne and La Pergola did not disappoint.
