My parents used to go to Blades 22 years ago. My mum and I went for lunch today and Germano did not disappoint. Amazing service, food and ambience!

I have been eating in this restaurant since before I was twenty and I recently had my fiftieth birthday party there. In all that time, this place has had the same owner and it just gets better and better.

This quaint local Italian restaurant is a great choice for a romantic dinner and very reasonably priced. The waiters are hospitable and experienced, the atmosphere is authentic and there is a grill in the middle of a restaurant where you can see you food getting cooked.

I and two friends visited on a Friday night. As other reviewers have mentioned there was a problem with the service. The staff had a poor grasp of English and found it difficult to answer our questions about the menu and we weren't told about all the possible options. After we had ordered we discovered that there was a Specials... More

We had such such horrible service they were so so rude. We made a booking and they looked at us as if we had turned up about 3 hours late (we were on time). The service then remained being terrible. The waiter banging down glasses and not saying a word as if we had angered them. When we came to... More

We popped in to this place as we were seeing a gig at 8 in the pub opposite. We went in on the off chance of a table and luckily got one as there were 6 of us. It's not a big place but the staff were great, really accommodating, luckily we were early in the evening. The food was... More

The owner is very hospitable and the salad bar superb. I thought it was a bit cold in the back room until all of us got there...It could have been warmer but the food was very good and well worth the money.

We chose this place because the location was right for the journey we were on, and because they take the Taste Card, so we could get a discount. The service was friendly and efficient, the food was good and the prices reasonable.
