Have enjoyed dining at La Tombolo on several occasions and can't get past their special steak meal. Expensive dining but well worth it and the décor and service are "top shelf".

A nice restaurant with attentive service. The decor is older but it’s easy parking and good food which is more important. Is on the more expensive side for Italian but it’s full service too.

Went with a family group, we were made very welcome. Good selection of food without being huge menu, also a good wine list. Our waitress was very efficient and explained meals well, make sure to check the specials. Will definitely go back again.

I agree that it both depends on the children's ages and their behaviour and a great idea to call Tony at the restaurant to confirm if kids meals are available if the website doesn't confirm this.

Tony is absolutely fabulous in arranging events and in just everyday courtesy. He is an icon in hospitality.
