The food and the attention to our needs was excellent. Mine host Caroline... More

What was to come soon changed my mind, when making your way to the restaurant up stairs, there is further seating in a pleasant and... More

The bar area is welcoming and the restraunt area is cosy but capacious. Staff were very polite and attentive. I would say the quality of the venue and food made... More

Armando's is an excellent restaurant. The menu is not very big but this is a good thing, and everything that they have on the menu is cooked superbly. The ambiance of the restaurant is suited to couples dining and friends dining and they are also happy to cater for family dining. The restaurant is split into connected sections which also... More

Had a meal here with friends last Saturday evening. Staff were friendly and welcoming and service was prompt despite the restaurant being busy. Menu has a good selection of Italian dishes and everything was very tasty and well presented. The restaurant area is on the first floor and has an airy feel to it even when it has plenty of... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant on a recommendation last Monday and were not disappointed. For starters we had smoked chicken with salad and for mains tagliatelle with salmon in a creamy sauce. Both courses were excellent as was the service and attention from Caroline. Armando's was a very pleasant experience and is to be highly recommended.
