Absolutely love this place, staff are friendly & accommodating, service is efficient and the food is fresh & tastes amazing. The kids love it too!
Good food and great atmosphere on a Saturday night. Would recommend this for families as well as for friends and couples. Service level is attentive.
Brilliant food as ever, excellent service and fantastic atmosphere - well worth a visit. Noisy and friendly - just as any Osteria would be in Italy - bellisima
Lovely staff and fantastic food, need to advertise specials board better and update website as it says no service charge but on night was a £22 charge. On whole lovely .
I have been to Osteria Due Fratelli quite a lot in the past, but not visited it for about a year. I was disappointed this time. A few of us said our plates were cold, although my main course was nice. Another guest who had a pizza said his fingers were sore trying to cut through the dough. One waiter was a bit rude I thought. I think he thought he was being funny. Probably wo t go there again.
The food at the restaurant was good but spoilt by the cold atmosphere and lack of friendliness of the staff. We wanted a nice family meal but didn't really enjoy being there. We were greeted by an older man who told us to chose a table, we were given tatty dirty menus, the table was sticky and the music was anything but relaxing. The food we had was very nice and came out quickly, but we were disappointed that there were not any nice deserts to finish our meal off with. There used to be a fridge with lovely desserts in to chose from but that is no longer there. The staff were all men and shouted rather than talked to you!!! We found this restaurant to be the opposite to what they have in their web page. It may of been that before but not anymore.
Food was great but service chaotic. We were asked for drinks and food orders twice in quick succession and even the card payment was put through for the wrong amount. This was less than the bill so an additional payment had to be made. Unfortunately this will remain with us and we probably won't be returning.
v good service friendly staff food i had veal excellent my only suggestion is for other steak be used i.e or sirloin or rump overall a very pleasant experience and evening out
Very nice atmosphere and food was great. The group we were with would have rather put our own tip rather that the service charge (as it was £20 due to size of bill) but that's our only critic.
Poor service. We had to Ask to see the dessert menu after waiting 40 minutes from when we finished the main course. Our bill came to £61 and we gave £70 to pay and the waiter went off with it and never returned. The waiter didn't ask and assumed the rest was a tip! We would normally give the 10% tip but not when we don't receive any change and it is an assumptiom like this as well as the fact the service was terrible the whole evening ! Very disappointing evening
Brilliant service and the food was cooked too perfection! Can't complain at all. Always happy when I've eaten here before and coming for my partner's birthday is no exception.
Very nice food and the staff very helpful especially the manager! I had my birthday celebration there I felt very spoiled! Thank you and hope to see you again
Excellent food and service. They helped us to find a better table when the first one proved unsuitable. Food was authentic Italian dishes, well prepared with fresh ingredients.
Food was amazing as per usual. My favorite restaurant at the moment. Staff were lovely and kept checking up to make sure everything okay. Service was quick too.
As always the food was superb, the service excellent. Thank you. I have visited on several occasions and never been disappointed. See you in the New Year!
Very child friendly. Food was lovely, good selection, not overally salted as I have found in most restaurants. Would highly recommend and definitely return. Desserts were amazing!
I have previously been to the restaurant with friends and enjoyed it totally, on this occasion I took my wife and mother in law, we first ordered and asked for a lasagne starter potion which we had had on out last visit and was this time told no starter size there all the same and was charged for main course size. My wife ordered a chicken dish with spaghetti and got a different dish, when we told the waiter he said it's nice and walked off. I had lamb chops which were bone and hardly any meat with potatoes and should have been veg which never arrived. We decided to pay the bill and leave but found we had also been charged for the veg we never had. I'm very disappointed as I went there expecting a lovely meal again and a not very rude waiter . I do hope they read this as has put me off going back
We enjoyed an excellent meal and first-rate service. The staff work very hard to make customers happy. As near perfect as you can get. Highly recommended.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening as food was fantastic and good service .staff very friendly and extremely helpful, very nice atmosphere, Will definitely going back.
this was a birthday celebration and we all had a lovely time. As the food was really tasty and well cooked and the service was very attentive and friendly. Thank you
Fantastic service and meal. Lovely Italian feel and all service staff make you feel welcome. Booking was easy to complete and use. Great all round
Great food. Great people. Great price. Love this place and looking forward to going back. Plus they accept Tastecard so winners in my eyes. Thanks.
Great food at reasonable prices and service when not too busy is amazing. Good when very busy. Love the relaxed style and lovely people. Much better than chain restaurants
We had a great meal here, lovely food the seafood pasta was fab! The people were lovely and friendly. Just need to work on the espresso martinis!
Friendly service, great food. This Osteria has a family feel about it and it warm and welcoming. New decoration is good too. We really enjoyed our evening.
Generally very good ,mussels were very poor. Malbec delightful. Service fine and the atmosphere very nice. Look to do a very good deal midweek with Taste card.
Much better than expected. Food was very nice and well presented. The reviews nearly put me off, but waiter and waitress very nice and service good.
The Food was really nice and the service was great we had a really good time the staff where all friendly and hopeful would go again.
Great food and friendly service. Would highly recommend this great restaurant. If you like Italian it is one of the best around. The staff are amazing
Lovely atmosphere and choice of Italian food. May have to wait a while when it is busy. House wine is quite pleasant - would recommend it.
This restaurant is usually very good but had very bad service this time. We took our own wine as the website advertised we could do this any day except Saturday ( it was Friday). We were told this was a mistake on the website but we could drink our own wine this time. We were made to feel quite uncomfortable. Our table was booked for 8 pm but after being told about the wine we were ignored until we asked if we could place our order at 830. At 930 we asked where are starters were and were told they had lost our order! When the food eventually arrived it was nice but didn't make up for the terrible service. We won't be going back in a hurry.
Used to love this restaurant but it must have changed hands! I had beef ragu which I've had before and loved but this time the beef hadn't been cooked long enough and was chewy. My husband had a steak, asked for it medium, it wasn't even pink! He asked for a lemonade and was given a coke. It was just awful. Won't bother again.
Great restaurant, service and food. Will be visiting again soon. Starter mussels was delicious, main was pizza was very nice and overall ambience was great
The waiter was certainly a character! The calamari was slightly overcooked and rubbery but the Pollo Milanese was very good. Overall a good experience for our table
Lovely food which is worth its money, however the service was pretty poor but this was more than likely due to the closeness to. christmas
Food was o except the pizza oven was broken so choices limited. And we had to remind them about our drinks. We've been before and the experience gas been better
It was just ok. The food was alright,not much flavour and the serve was average. Had a good Friday night atmosphere. Good sized portions though
Not a restaurant more a bistro . Waiters looked disinterested, tables very sticky. Cheap cutlery , everything looked on the cheap. Food very average nothing to make you wAnt to go back.
Poor service. Average food. Hate to say it but would have got a better bowl of pasta at prezzos. Poor selection of wine as well
Used like restaurant seems new owners/staff salad garnish on food was tired and second hand had tomato sauce in garnish but dish didn't contain tomatoes
Didn't stay because it was chaos in the restaurant, staff didn't acknowledge us when we turned up for about 15 mins we had to call them over not happy
Waited nearly an hour for our starter in which time we'd finished our bottle of wine. Decided to give up, paid for the wine and left.
