“Lovely food & always great service!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We go here quite regularly, either lunch or dinner & for a chain I think food is great! We have a independent Italian which is great where we live but this isn't a lot different in comparison to quality. We ve been to strada in Milton Keynes to but like the atmosphere & staff at Hitchin. Staff no matter how busy are always polite & never left ignored. We also have used tesco vouchers ( via eon) here so even better value!

“Above average for a chain restaurant”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Compared to most chain restaurants this has a little something extra, but it is at heart a chain restaurant! The prawns as a starter were lovely and well cooked, the steak was cooked as asked, nice and pink, but was quite chewy. Overall a nice meal, but nothing to rave about. I guess you get what you pay for.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Our starter was delivered to the wrong table and left there for about 5 minutes before it was redirected to our table. Did not order dessert even though I was still hungry.
Serving staff need more training!
Staff could have been more friendly and attentive.
Would not rush back.
Strada in Milton Keynes is much nicer.

“Lovely early evening meal”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Dined here July 31st, My daughter and myself booked an early evening slot here with a £10 off 2 main meals voucher.
From entering until leaving we were very well looked after, not rushed or pushed into ordering anything we didn't want. We were offered water (along side our wine ) and were not pushed in to buying expensive bottled water but offered tap water which was great!
Our food was very nice, plenty of it and presented well.
The wine ...all 2 glasses of it was the most expensive thing on the bill! Its definitely better to buy by the bottle if you want more than 1 glass each!!
All in all a pleasant dining experience with good food and service. Will certainly be returning
