Food was absolutely incredible, one of the best Italians I’ve been to. Wasn’t too loud in there as it’s a small restaurant. Staff were very friendly. Food came out fairly quickly. Good value. Would definitely recommend.

Service was slow to start with and then at the end we were given the bill without asking for it and rushed out as they said they needed the table at 8’0clock. Had the service been quicker at the beginning and we had been told there was another sitting at 8’pclock it would have been fine, but as we did not know this we felt as if we were being kicked out.

Amazing as usual until just before the end of the meal. Our table the the table next door were too close. Not an issue while the other table was empty but as soon as the other table was filled, you could see tht the other family weren’t happy to be sitting so close either

Visited on Prosecco night, with our glasses continually refreshed for free. All we had to do was order a starter and main course and plenty of variety on the menu to want to do that anyway. Dirty Beef dish definitely worth ordering

Had a lovely socially distanced dinner. Portions are very generous and good value. I think the draw is the steak, which hubby really enjoyed. My pasta was lovely too. Would definitely recommend for a nice evening meal.

I found the lamb Raghu was slightly too oily And the burger tasted slightly processed and not worth the price but overall taste was really good and staff were kind. Pornstar martini was top tier

The steak here is always very good. Any cut is always superb and cooked exactly how you want it. Service is spot on and with the current corona virus conditions all staff are very helpful and make you feel very comfortable.

Great food as usual but an 'off' night for service. The floor manager was outstanding but she had two colleagues working with her who were out of their depth and didn't know what they were doing. One had either neither waited tables before or clearly had no interest in being there which is not ideal on a busy Friday night. Hopefully just a blip but it did make the experience unpleasant.

Was disappointed that even though the Website stated "EVERY" meal over £25 had a £5 off in September, that if you had the Tuesday Lobster special + a separate pudding that this was not included in that offer.

The service was shocking! The staff were all over the place and it seemed like a group of teenagers had been employed for the night!

Beer was warm and we were just told "that's what its like"

We had to leave before eating as we were sat less than a metre from our nearest fellow diners. Manager very apologetic and even offered us a free meal; I tried to explain that all they need to do to satisfy us is to abide by the social distance regulations.

Paglia e Fieno is the best restaurant in East Grinstead in our opinion and their meat is to die for. Excellent food and very generous portions. The staff are very friendly. What's not to love?
