Food was good and a sensible portion size. The room was crowded and noisy and staff were unwilling to release tables in a quieter area. Conversation was difficult. It was a Monday night, so I imagine it would be even noisier at peak times.

We have eaten here during the day and had a really lovely relaxing lunch
However we booked a table for 9.30 Saturday evening and wish we hadn’t !!!!
The restaurant was so incredibly noisy we couldn’t even hold a conversation
We asked for a quieter table but this could not be accommodated
We found it impossible to think about eating so decided to leave
Definitely a place to visit only in the daytime when it is quieter

Lovely restaurant, clean, inviting and great service! The food was lovely presented, decent portions and value for money! The starters were fabulous with fresh ingredients, husbands main dish was lovely, However the vegetarian options were limited and the vegetarian calzone was smoothered in pesto so really not good!
Atmosphere lovely so didn’t spoil the night!

Used to come here regularly and couldn’t fault the place but after visiting last Saturday since the new extension it was overcrowded, service was slow and it’s lost it’s charm. Food was overpriced and nothing special. Sadly won’t return again. Less is more and they have tried to go to big now.

Our evening was spoiled by a hen party who were squeezed into a long thin table meaning they couldn’t hear each other so all ended up shouting. We’re aware of a room upstairs and would have thought it more sensible to put them up there. Our food was nice but we couldn’t have a conversation or hear the waiter over the noise.

Have been here many times before. Food is always excellent, but we had an inexperienced waiter who constantly reached across you even in the middle of one's conversation. Gave us the desert menu and then we got forgotten. Could not attract anyone's attention. So poor3 end to the night. I know it can be better.

We visited on a busy Saturday night so it was expected that we would be served a little slower, but the wait wasn't too bad and the food was worth it, every course was delicious, the best Italian food ever! Staff were very friendly, polite and attentive as well. Really liked the building, had a factory vibe with bare brick walls but worked really well! Would definitely return.

I love this Italian Restaurant. It feels authentic, it’s big, but sociable. Service is attentive and food is served quickly with elegance.
My pick of the dishes was the creamy and meaty “monkfish and prawn carbonara“ from specials board.

We were seated promptly, ordered starters and drinks, then soaked up some of the lovely ambiance. Starters were absolutely fantastic, then my partner couldn't decide on her main and opted for a chicken pizza, I chose the mushroom risotto.

Absolutely outstanding and highly recommended!

Service was EXCELLENT. Never had to wait too long for drinks etc.

Starter: Prawns in tomato and chilli (GAMBERETTI MARINARA) the taste was there (really good taste) but buy bigger prawns, would’ve been an excellent dish. Prawns were wayyyy too small.

Main: I had the linguine with king prawns and chicken (LINGUINE CON GAMBERONI E POLLO) taste was great! Take the chicken out, really doesn’t mix well with the prawns and in that kind of sauce. Only had 3 king prawns, would’ve rated the dish a lot more if it was all prawn.

Value was great, my girlfriends food was amazing (I was envious of her choices)

Having visited this restaurant a long time ago, I decided it was a good place to try again. I picked a time that was quiet as we were taking my 2 year old nephew as Pasta di Piazza prides its self on being a family restaurant I thought this would be fine. There was no more than 5 tables in use on our arrival so it was no busy at all. We were seated at a table and offered a high chair, at the time my nephew didn't want to sit in the high chair so we moved it to the end of the table out of the way. This caused an issue for the waitress serving and she asked if we needed the high chair, we explained it was work in progress. To which she said "well this is where I serve from" in a very unfriendly manor. We had our starters and main courses which the waitress was able to serve whilst the high chair was in the way. The meals were ok, nothing special. Tasteless pasta that was compared to chicken soup and a dish that was described as a hint of chilly on the menu, I removed at least 10 from my plate whilst I ate. I felt like we were being watched by the waitress and we got a disapproving looks when we made noise laughing. We asked for the desert menu, after waiting for 20 plus minutes and being the only dinners in there we gave up on trying to order and went else where for desert. All in all it was a very disappointing afternoon, and we wont be going back there.
