The garlic bread in particular was amazing, as well as friendly service and very affordable as they have a great happy hour with a lot of choice

Catch up with friends. Good choice on specials menu. Quick service, although not busy anyway. Music rather loud but bearable.

Everything about this place was very mediocre. Coke flat, no sparkling water, wine not great. Food was poor except for the meatballs. I had pasta which was bland my partner had pizza which had a weird aftertaste. Wouldn't recommend and won't visit again.

My 1st visit here, I would return however it wouldn't be my 1st choice. Value for money with the early bird is exceptional and a lot to choose from compared to other restaurants of the same cuisine. The food was good, but not great. However the staff made this experience, they were very attentive. Really great service. I'm sure this... More

After reading reviews for new Belvedere thought would give it a go but will not be going back. Mushroom soup was just tasteless and watery. King prawns were very good but bread on table had uncooked bits it and was so heavy. Pizza dough on calzone wasn't cooked enough shame as filling was really nice.

After years of not visiting this restaurant due to low food standards previously, we decided to pay it a visit to celebrate a family members birthday. As we heard it had been taken over and newly named Belvedere. The food is far superior now then previously. The staff are lovely and are so welcoming. Food was piping hot and very... More

I rarely give five stars to a place. Because I consider my standards to be exacting. This pizzeria restaurant was wonderful. It has recently acquired new management and is no longer called Michaelangelos. It's now called Belvedere. We were welcomed in by smiling faces and pleasanteries as they brought out a ramp to allow us wheelchair access. We were calmly... More

A nice Italian restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Visited here for the first time on Friday evening for a family birthday celebration. Lovely food, I had the prawn cocktail and the steak special! Excellent value for money we all thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Having been a regular visitor to this restaurant for a number of years I have noticed the standards fluctuating in recent months. However the restaurant is now under new ownership with a new menu chef and wonderful locally sourced produce. Most importantly this is now family-owned and not part of a chain. Sabrina and her family are extremely welcoming everyone... More
