First visit here but have been to Birtley Tavistock Italia. greeted by friendly staff and served drinks promptly. Ate a starter and main course. Hot tasty potato skins with dip, followed by king prawn risotto; beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The house wine (red) was very pleasant. We were not hurried between the courses as in some places who need the table quickly. Staff were very chatty but not intrusive. Music also was 60s/70s which suited us but not too loud. Would recommend without a doubt.

Had another fabulous meal at this fine eaterie, everyone loved their meals - the children's favourite the potato skins, main course the beef just melted in your mouth and if you had enough room for desert the chocolate cookie and ice cream were to die for- will we be back YES and sooner rather than later 10/10

Fast and friendly service; food was good quality and served in decent sized portions - we both left feeling very satisfied and will certainly return. We were very kindly given a post-meal aperitif of a shot of amaretto - a lovely gesture, but unfortunately, we could not indulge in as we were both driving.

Excellent food, excellent service, lovely atmosphere. A fantastic Sunday lunch. As a first time customer I was pleasantly surprised by the decor and layout. Plenty of space between tables so we could sit and not feel like the next table could hear every word spoken or watch every mouthful consumed.

This is an excellent Italian restaurant, with efficient and courteous staff. My wife maintains her pizza was one of the best she has experienced outside Italy and my starter of garlic king prawns and main of goulash (made with strips of fillet of beef) were both outstanding. Highly recommended.

Good value 2 course meal and excellent service. We had booked for 4 but only 2 of us ended up eating. This did not phase the staff and we were all made welcome.
