We visited for our son's birthday on a busy Saturday. Although heaving with people we were surprised at the efficiency of the staff and the excellent attention paid to us. Apart from a full range of pizzas, this restaurant serves many other Italian dishes, including a selection of great desserts. The grilled sardines which were served as a starter were... More

We have been here quite a few times - and as on previous visits it remains outstanding. Pleasantly busy - but still with just the right attentiveness (not slow and not pestering). I love the mix of people eating here - it seems to work without having a particular target clientele. The food, ok we really only went for their... More

We wanted to try here as the reviews are so good however we were disappointed. We were seated at the back by the bar. This is a table underneath a fuse box and next to a very dirty wall that at minimum needs washing if not repainting, lots of food splashed on it is very off putting. There were plenty... More

This restaurant was highly recommended. Went for a friends birthday treat. We waited 30 mins to be asked our order. Another 30 mins rolled by before we got our starters, which I had to remind them that we hadn't had. They started giving us our knives etc ready for our main meals. I had to prompt them again for our... More

Booked Il Colosseo at the last minute for a table of 12 for a staff lunch on 21 December. Food was really good, waitress was excellent and all in all very good value for money. Also like the fact they didn't automatically add a service charge to the bill like most places do for group bookings so they got a... More

A group of us have twice recently visited this fabulous restaurant where the staff are wonderful and the food is sublime. It is ran by Italians who know what authentic cooking should taste like and they go all out to make sure everyone enjoys their time spent with them. They greeted us the second time like long lost friends and... More

Some reviews of this place wax eloquent on the slightly lower standard of Italian food compared to Naples. Don't pay attention to these. Sure, they may be right in their own way, but for Britain this is as good as it gets. Futhermore the restaurant is lacking nothing in terms of Italian spirit - a celebratory feel and friendliness TOP... More

I ate here on my own whilst on business. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food is simple Italian, good ingredients and well cooked. Spaghetti alla Vongole was great.
