Been here on several occasions and always thoroughly enjoy our time. The food is often very reasonable, for a table of 4 with starters mains and drinks the bill was just over £80 and the quality of food is too good to describe!

The place is always busy, but still a good conversation level, so remeber to book your table. Go with an empty stomach as the food fills you right the way up, but if you need they provide takeaway boxes.

Lovely restaurant with great ambiance , good authentic Italian food, would happily dine here again. Only criticism - please don't clear away the plates of other diners when someone on the table is still eating - it feels rushed.

For the amount of food for the price is a joke, pasta wasn't cooked fully.
The good thing is they (food wise) cater for coeliacs, I left there after just a main course still hungry... And a hole on my wallet

Excellent menu, pasta/steak/fish. Accommodates all tastes. Very good service and ambiance. I’m a big fan of this restaurant it never fails on all levels. Good for family occasions or romantic meals for two. The Crab ravioli with clams in a lobster bisque was truly amazing.

Another fantastic evening at Pasta Di Piazza. The food is wonderful, flavorsome and served exactly as described. The ambiance in this restaurant welcomes you back like a long lost friend! The waiting staff are extremely attentive and bring your food to the table with a smile . Wonderful place, somewhere I never tire of. Definitely recommend the RISOTTO ALLA MARINARA

Family of 5 for a Christmas Eve meal. Everything was perfect, the only slight criticism I would have is that the food was brought out too quick after starters and we were asked to order coffee mid way through dessert. Food was fantastic and a beautiful place

I have been to this venue many times and always had outstanding food & service.
This evening was a huge disappointment.
We arrived and sat down with menu's.
A table sat next to us and their placed their drink & food order and we had to ask for someone to take ours.
No body came over to ask us if we were OK or would like any more drinks.
After eating we were not offered a desert menu or coffee ( which we would of had).
We asked for the bill 3 times.
We felt ignored for most of the evening which was disappointing after so many great visits.

Been coming here for 27 years but feel its lost some of its sparkle. This is the second time running its been a bit disappointing. This time we were not offered bread which I love to mop up the tomato sauce from my muscles. We used to love the breadsticks which stopped a couple of years ago. The food again looked like it had been left under the hot lights for a while again. Just seems to be lacking in the finishing touches.

This was our second visit to the restaurant and overall we were very dissappointed with the service. Whilst the starters and main courses were reasonably good, though short on content, we experienced a poor response when selecting our dessert. Three of our party of six selected Zabaglione for a sweet only to be told by the waiter this couldn't be done even though it was shown on the menu. I requested he ask the Chef and he returned from that discussion with the astonishing comment that the Chef was , "too busy to produce our dessert as it is a Saturday night and it is Christmastime" Unbelievable ! If you are not going to provide this option of dessert then please delete it from the menu. The whims of a Chef should not determine what I select from the menu. Such a response from an establishment as your own beggars belief. To further dissappoint, the restaurant could not offer either skimmed or semi-skimmed milk with our coffees nor could it offer decaffeinated tea. That is poor.

Always brilliant. Meet are student sons here and they are often running late. Never a problem and the house red is very good.

The lovely lady who brought desert apologised for the smallest of waits!. Very busy night with Christmas party tables and wasn’t an issue.

Best Christmas tree ever and had lovely birthday meal for my husband. Crab ravioli very good.

Ladies on next table having Christmas do had biggest glasses of G &T I have ever seen.

Below average for a restaurant that’s quite pricey. Food wasn’t horrible but pretty standard, almost like pub food. Service not great, waitress didn’t smile and acted very busy. Not worth the price and I wouldn’t go again for a special occasion.

Arrived early and was able to be seated. Quite a large step up into the restaurant and the toilets are downstairs, so not accessible although there is an easy access toilet on restaurant level. Nice specials board with seasonal seafood (note not much seafood on the main menu), portion sizes won't leave you hungry. Attentive staff (although we did have to ask for tap water twice). Left happy with no quibbles.

Rubbish table - crammed in a corner, despite us booking 2 weeks in a advance. Average food which wasn't particuarlly authentic - bruschetta tasted like a frozen pizza. Attempt to charge us for a £23.50 steak, which we didn't order. Very disappointing, not the way I wanted to celebrate. I will not be returning.

Went for a special occasion for a birthday date night. (2nd time here as I came in a group for my birthday). Each time I have visited, I have received a warm & friendly welcome. Service is attentive, yet not rushed. Staff lovely. Food is AMAZING. Couldn't fault anything here. Would recommend to anyone. It's a crime not to come here, for authentic Italian cuisine. My date had not been here before & loved it.

An average meal, with average service and no so average prices.
There was nothing special about anything at this restaurant, it was basic average food and service, in my opinion an overrated establishment.

Food fantastic in this cosy restaurant! Beautiful surroundings, friendly staff, relaxed restaurant! We really enjoyed our meal- great value. We were left 40 mins before getting our starter which was disappointing as guests arriving after us were going food before us, however when we asked how much long it would be our starter was with us immediately and our mains arrived promptly after- unfortunately I think we had Been forgotten, however they did knock the starter off the bill, which I’m assuming was because of the wait! Food brilliant though and the restaurant was so lovely! We will be back.
