I'd mentioned to a colleague we were going here and he said don't pay too much attention to the eclectic deco, the food is fantastic. He was right on both counts. There were four of us and not one of us had matching cutlery but it was spotlessly clean. They only seem to have one size of wine glass but... More

For some reason I have been lucky finding small Italian restaurant somewhere in a really small town that are really good and this was another one. Small restaurant with very friendly staff and the food was fantastic. Starters and mains excellent, the desert looked great too but the portions were good size so we were full by then!

A fantastic atmosphere and really friendly staff. Food is very good with a large variety of choices and the steaks are to die for. We were very impressed with the quality of the meat. Definitely go back again .

We walked in and the atmosphere was fab, it felt like an authentic, informal Italian restaurant, it was all going so well until our food arrived. I had lamp chops with veg and roast potatoes and a side of asparagus, my boyfriend had seabass in a tomato sauce. The lamb chops were so over cooked I could barely cut through... More

Hi, thank you for taking the time to review us. Once again we are disappointed that you didn't enjoy your meals. As I told you on the evening we wouldn't have charged you if upon trying your meals you were not happy to eat them and when we initially checked on you you said that all was fine. Then later...

The veal is absolutely delicious, what ever your take on veil. We have never had a slightly off meal here. Try it you won't be disappointed. N.B. Book a... More

I visited Bosco Nero three times in February. On each occasion we had a warm welcome and I found the staff to be really friendly throughout our evening. The fillet steak was cooked exactly how I'd asked and tasted delicious on both occasions. I ordered the Bosco Nero sauce on my first visit and the Rossini on the third. Both... More
