“God value Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

I now understand why this little restaurant is so busy!
Good value pasta and pizza well cooked good service and nice surroundings.
What's not to like?

I walked in off the street in a party of 9 and nothing was too much trouble.

“My first experience of Caffe Tirreno”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

This was our first time at Caffe Tiereno or should it be called Caffe TERRIBLE, nor will we ever go back again.The food was very poor and the smell drifting from the toilets wasnt very nice while your sitting waiting to eat either, but what really put me off was the staff coats hanging up at the kitchen exit and the cooked food been brought out passing the coats!!! We ordered a starter that never came, and waited and waited for a coffee in the end we went and asked for the bill explaining we werent happy with the food nor the service and we where told from a very rude waiter that the macnine had to warm up for he had just switched it on, on a Saturday night and also 5 people that afternoon had eaten the same dish I hadnt eated and hadnt complained!!! I would strongly not recommend anyone to go there.

“Worth a try”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We love Italian food and always have to find an Italian restaurant wherever we go on holiday. We were in the Alnwick area during Feb half term and after checking out the town during the day on saturday decided to give this restaurant a go that evening.

It was full when we arrived which is usually a good sign. We had to sit and wait a while for a table which was understandable. When we sat down we had to wait quite a while before someone took our order. The staff were jolly but clearly busy.

We ordered a bowl of olives to nibble on whilst waiting for our starters of:- ham and mozarella, goats cheese and bruschetta.

I think you can tell a lot about a place by two things: 1. The toilets and 2. The olives! I didn't use the facilities but I was a bit miffed by the olives. We had to wait around 20 minutes for the olives which had merely been taken out of brine and covered with olive oil, herbs and salad rather than having been marinated for a fuller flavour. It was, however, rather a large portion and they were all eaten! I know this may sound petty but we do love olives!

The main courses of: rigatoni carbonara, t-bone veal and salmon pasta were generous and filling. The t-bone was a bit gristly but the part that wasn't was very nice. I was extremely surprised at the size of the t-bone and the price - less than £10!!

Drinks to accompany the food were: a jug of water, bottle of Peroni and a glass of house red. The bill in total was approx £42 for three.

“Nice food, nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

We visited here after seeing reviews on trip advisor. Not disappointed! The food was great, service great, maybe too much of the food though, portions were massive! Is that a complaint? No, definitely not. Bruschetta was amazing, most of our party opted for various pasta dishes, all of which were beautiful. And not expensive!
