“Unhelpful booking”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

We tried to book a table for 9 for this Friday evening but were told all the large round tables were booked and were told we would have to suit on two tables. They would not join two tables together as it was a management and staff decision to increase profits!

My wife didn't believe me so she also rang to be told same story.

Thought you needed to get in and spend for profits to be generated but what do I know....

Anyway happy to confirm that we are visiting a restaurant in clitheroe and they seemed very helpful.

The staff are very friendly and very helpful, we have been to the restaurant over 6 or 7 times now and we cant really find much fault in the place. Give it a try you wont be dissapointed!

“Small Table”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Main complaint table too small! Four of us arrived for our booked table. Our drinks order and food order taken quickly. Only when our drinks arrived did we realized how small the table was, and we had only ordered a bottle of wine and a jug of water. When our 2 mixed starters arrived for the four of us to share, there wasn't enough room on the table, the wine had to be put on the floor and we were left to try and juggle our plates around to try and fit everything on. No better when main course arrived and of course bigger plates.
This was on a Thursday evening when the the restaurant wasn't full. So why put a party of four on a table that was just big enough for two!
Food: To start we had a Classico antipasto and a selection of mixed seafood to share very average. Then two had pizza which they both enjoyed,but i was glad not mine, one had Ravioli filled with Lobster and Crabmeat quick large portion but she wouldn't have again. I had choose of the special menu, shark steak glad quite dark where we were sat as some parts weren't cooked enough did eat it but did wonder it may have upset stomach later.
Now been to Nino's about 7 times. Not saying won't go again if friends choose there but not my choice.
I have to say the only reason I bothered to write this review was the size of table.

I have visited this restaurant which is in cliviger on the outskirts of Burnley. The restaurant is quite large with a seperate dining area. The bar area has large sofas and a piano. They have tribute group nights through the months. The service is good and it does become busy so wise to book a table. The menu is varied and the food is of good value. I keep returning and have not been dissapointed.

“This restaurant takes first place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stopped in for a drink on our way to another restaurant, but the whole place just grew on us. The view of Pendle Hill from the lounge bar is a delight. We decided to ask about food. At short notice the manager found us a table when he heard we were celebrating a birthday. The food was first class and the service impeccable. I would recommend pre-booking as I feel we were extremely lucky. We are already making plans for our next visit.
