“Easily the best restaurant in Tamworth”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

DiQuino's is a quaint little restaurant located in the center of tamworth. Whether you are from Tamworth or just passing through, I would highly recommend this place.
Delicious heart warming food, cooked with real passion is what you get here. The atmosphere is very comfortable and relaxed with an ambience perfect for eating (fresh roses on every table is a lovely touch.)
Food served with great timing and all courses arrived at the perfect temperature (hot but not scorching).
The presentation of the food was also very very nice. The main course (pork loin in a tasty italian sauce) was just the right quantity and looked gorgeous. We had a portion of vegetables on a separate plate to the main dish consisting of mini roast potatoes (both crispy and fluffy), carrots which were lovely and sweet and cut into great little flowers, slightly crunchy broccoli (just the way I like it) and very tasty green beans.
The desert was very creative and to taste was obviously home made, absolutely to die for. Pear, almond and chocolate sponge cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Mmmmm!!!
The waiter was excellent and made us feel very welcome from start to finish. Little things like taking our coats and pulling out the chairs went a long long way to make us feel like real valued customers.
Overall I highly recommend this place. You won't be disappointed :)

“Pre cooked and reheated food.”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Charming restaurant in quant little back street, staff very friendly and service very quick. That last bit gives the game away! Unfortunately the good was bland, pre cooked and reheated, and certainly overpriced given the poor quality. Having selected our main course Costing circa £16 a dish, I was amazed and annoyed to find the vegetables were extra. I love Italian food and have far better food and paid less in better towns than Tamworth. So to sum up: If your happy to settle for second best, but still pay for the best, then you won't be disappointed, otherwise avoid.

“Tasty authentic food”
Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

Stopped by at this restaurant yesterday without booking after a friends recommendation.

We were met by friendly staff and were attended to promptly.

Our order was taken by a knowledgable chap (the owner?) and the food arrived quickly.

All three courses were served promptly, tasted fresh and were on nice warm plates (I hate cold plates).

Overall we both had a marvellous evening, very good food served by friendly staff well done!
