A little history: Bombetta is originally from the farming communities of Puglia where the land was devoted to olive groves, and room to grow trees for firewood was scarce. As fuel was precious, farm workers would head to the local butcher and feast on bombette from his communal oven. This meat would often be rolled up into a little bundle and contain bits of cheese or be held together by cured meat. A delicious food and a tradition based on community, eating and sharing together was born. And now it's here...

Reasonably priced, particularly considering the food, which is delicious! Service is excellent also, all staff have an excellent knowledge of the menu and are happy to explain. The outdoor seating is quiet and well spaced. Recommended.

Great set up with lots of well spaced outdoor seating along the front and side with great shading and a lovely touch with pictures and flowers to decorate, creates a lovely atmosphere. We loved all the food we ordered, some fantastic Italian cheeses and charcuterie served very imaginatively. The service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.

First time back since lockdown, and we had a really enjoyable experience. One of the few COVID safe places I’ve visited, whilst still retaining the quality of food, ambience and service. I would highly recommend.

Bombetta always has delicious, innovative dishes and they have worked hard to make the restaurant spacious and inviting for distanced dining. Still a great experience and hasn’t lost atmosphere and quality with current restrictions.

Our first visit to Bombetta and we were not disappointed. A refreshing change from the usual Italian restaurants that all have the same menu. Whilst the menu was limited (due to chefs being away) we had a lovely meal sharing everything. Authentic recipes using excellent ingredients delivered in a relaxed way. We will be back!

Great lunch for two at the outside tables they have created. We shared a number of dishes and loved the buffalo mozzarella with bee pollen but all the plates were great. Good value at around £60 with drinks. Will definitely be back.

We were very happy to have our first dining out date since March! Bombetta have transformed 2 areas into super pretty outdoor dining areas which were perfect to socially distance. The menu was a little smaller than pre Covid but still plenty to choose from our favourites the black pudding with chickpeas and the beef and of course courgettes fries are our always go to. Warm , friendly service as always

First meal out in a restaurant post lock down. We ate outside, they have managed to get around 7 tables of 4 arranged and have done a great job of covering these to protect from the heat of the sun and make them look nice. Food was delicious, we shared a number of plates including cured meats, cheese and pasta. Will definitely be back!

What a great vibe, a dining experience you would expect from a west end restaurant but with the personal touch you would get from an out of town venue. Great food, attentive team, great location and good value

Hi Louise, I'm sorry you didn't like us. I wasn't there on the day but our head chef Victor was. I understand that the booking on arrival was changed from 2 to 3 people. Your meal on our system and it looks like you ordered a nice selection. Christian and Tania served your table and they tell me you didn't mention anything was wrong. We weren't aware you had such a negative time. I wish you had told us and we would have tried to make things more enjoyable for you. Kind regards, Ben

Responded on 26 February 2020

KirstyB I am sorry you had to wait an hour for your food. There must have been an issue with the ticket, I do apologise. That said I am pleased the guys tried to give you something to keep you going and I am super pleased that despite the wait, you still gave us 5 stars across the board ! Thank you so much for that and I hope to have you back!
