We've been to this restaurant in a few different iterations. It used to be a deli and restaurant combined. Always seems to be a winner.

Lovely food and very attentive staff combined to make a lovely evening.

Seating is poor, back rest of chairs too upright and seats covered in leatherette material which make your backside sweat.
Food was even worse, we both had lasagna which would normally have beef in it, in this case there was no sign of any beef, only pasta and tomato with a hint of cheese on the top. Very poor.
Would NOT recommend.

La Famiglia is quickly becoming one of our favourite restaurants in Liverpool. Every time we have been there the food has been out of this world - the Spaghettoni we had last night was truly amazing and i would recommend this to anyone who goes. If you want amazing Italian food done with passion and care, La Famiglia is the place to go!

Easy to book up, seated in nice booth even though there was only two of us. Drinks came quickly from smiley waiter and we studied lots of specials chalked up.
We abandoned the menu & chose two specials, both of which were outstanding. Replete ad we were, the Tiramisu attracted but they were sold out - perhaps it should have been rubbed out on chalkboard to save disappointment. Chatted pleasantly with waiter Pepe and we rebooked for a few days hence, at lunchtime (to give us chance of bagging some Tiramisu!!)

This is a very nice traditional and authentic Italian restaurant with a good and unusual selection of starters and mains.The atmosphere was very pleasant and the service attentive.The only minor criticism was that we've had better Bruschetta elsewhere but would not hesitate to visit again

What a lovely little restaurant on Stanley Street. Walked past it a thousand times and never knew it was there.

It as pretty full in there, which is always a good sign for a restaurant that is slightly out of the way of the busiest parts of town.

Cocktails were beautiful and the food matched the standard.

Will certainly be considering here again, next time we’re eating out.

Gorgeous.

First time trying this restaurant & will never be back, were seated in the corner at a small table for two right next to toilets, waited over 45 mins for our starter & ended up cancelling order & walking out so cannot comment on how tasty food was. Service was not great, we were handed a menu to choose from & not told about any specials which we couldn't see on wall from our small corner table. Put a dampner on rest of our evening as we then had to find another restaurant on a busy Saturday night. Giving them 1 star is being generous

I felt rushed since the time we arrived. We were 15 minutes late due to waiting for a taxi however we did call to let the restaurant know , this seemed to be fine.
The guy who greeted us was very abrupt, quickly sat us down , it seemed he was rushed of his feet even though the resteraunt was half empty, not a very warm welcome at all.
When we were seated a lady came straight over and asked us were we ready to order as she needed the table back by 8pm it was only 6.15pm and we had not even lifted the menu up, she said there was not enough time to have dessert ! We had not even ordered our first drink at this point , we kindly asked her to give us five minutes.
The food came, it was pretty average , we expected better , the pasta was really undercooked , nice wine though.
After we finished the lady informed us we do now have time for dessert if we wished as the following party of people had cancelled , but we didn't want to stay. I won't be going back in a rush , nor would I recommend. Lacks atmosphere and a smile from the staff would be nice.
