The food at Regginas is enjoyable and reasonably priced. We felt very welcome, and the service was quick and friendly. Our waiter was really knowledgeable about the menu, which is very important. Thanks for a great evening!

I recently went for a meal with my girlfriend to this place as i had heard good things about it. The head waiter Joe was great, funny and informative about the specials and how they are cooked etc. Also i loved the ambience as it was fine dining experience but it had a comfortable homely feeling and all the staff were very helpful. I also found the timing of the meals perfect. At the end of the night i couldnt get a taxi so one of the staff sorted this for us and within 5 minutes we had a taxi to get home. Overall i would love to go back and definetely would recommend this to anyone. And a shout out to Joe who didnt mind answering the 1001 questions my girlfriend had!

Many thanks again, Chris.

I visited this place with 2 friends. I had heard good reviews about it. The head waiter was very imformative and helpful and talked us through all the specials, the same cannot be said for the other waiting staff. Me and another friend had the fishcakes that were on the specials. They were soggy and not very nice tasting, normally fishcakes are crispy on the outside but these were just limp and not really up to standard. When i commented on this to one of the waitresses, she scowled, i told her and she replied 'so you just dont like them then?'....'theres nothing we can do about that'. Well it wasnt the case that i just didnt like them, they werent particularly nice tasting no, but also they were sub-standard and unappetising. I've had plenty of fishcakes in the past and these ranked at the bottom, fishcakes from a local chippy at 70p each ranked higher than these for 8 quid a pop. After this, it seems she must have mentioned our disastisfaction to the rest of the staff, because we kept getting funny looks and the table took ages to be cleared. Needless to say they were still on the bill. I would normally ask them to be removed, but from their attitude it was clear i would be wasting my breath, and after reading other reivews on here, i, pleased i didnt. At the end of the day, if the customer is not happy then the staff should be attentive and try and resolve the problem rather than becoming guarded, unhelpful. The mains were nothing to complain about but equally nothing to write home about. Food was probably on parr with an italian chain restaurant but far more expensive and the service worse. I would neither recommend or disuade someone trying Reggina's, maybe you will have a better experience, seems other friends have had good ones, but on this occasion, big thumbs down. Such a shame, i go out to eat a lot and am quick to rave to friendsfamily about somewhere good. Had they sorted my problem with our starters then all would have been forgiven. Reggina's - let down by some rude and ignorant staff that take any small criticism as a personal dig!!
