There is no where better! We love this restaurant so much. Authentic Italian food in an intimate restaurant. The staff cannot do enough to help and treat our daughter like a guest of honour. We cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough
We booked online, based on online comments. On our arrival we were greeted with Very friendly and efficient service, above all - GREAT food. Highly recommend.
Great service and very friendly. Rustic Italian family feel at a great price. From the moment you enter to the time you leave, you are made to feel like nothing is to much for them. Highly recommended.
Always a great atmosphere, great food and attentive waiters. We've been going to Checcos for 30 years and they always live up to a great standard.
We went to Checco's for my mum's birthday, she wanted a pizza so we decided on Checco's. The place has a nice,friendly atmosphere of typical Italian trattoria/pizzeria. The staff were friendly and attentive, the food arrived in good time . Our pizzas were great, nice thin based and great flavour. The kids enjoyed the banter with the staff and thoroughly enjoyed their mixed flavour ice creams. For desert, I had the lemon cream crunch and mum enjoyed her tiramisu. Overall great night and great food. Would not hesitate to recommend.
We have been here on and off for many years, it's a relaxed, friendly environment, very strong on the staple Italian foods pizza and pasta and good service. The pizzas were authentic and well loaded, the Checco comes with everything on and the baked patsta lasagne / cannelloni arrives sizzling hot with plenty of cheese. Prices are quite reasonable too.
you should never go back, they say. Used to go to Checco's very regularly up to 12 years ago, in those days could only book for a large number- 4 wouldn't cut it. Had to sit until they could fit you in. So, using this service was a great boon. however, they were empty and the service was poor. The quality of the food, not as I remember. Gone to fine dining, giant plates with a little foot cowering in a depression in the middle.
Great wide choice of dishes, and just as important dish sizes for the children. 6 of us chose different starters, different mains and different sweets - not a scrap left on any plate which speaks for itself. Great service too.
A great place. Great atmosphere staff and most importantly the food was excellent. We had not been for years but we're glad we decided to go back again and will not be too long before we go again!
Friendly staff and good service as usual. We tried the specials which were tasty although a lump of chicken skin not appreciated by my partner in tortellini. Nice atmosphere and not as mad busy for a Saturday evening as I've seen it. No bad thing?
