Amazing customer service. Very friendly staff. Unfortunately my mash potato was cold and then was told a fresh one was going to be made and would have a drink whilst I waited. Food came back very quickly (before my drink) and the duck wasnt pink anymore so do feel my meal was re-heated quickly. But still tasted nice. The staff definitely saved the error as they were all spot on throughout.

Welcoming with great food superbly and lovingly described.
Not overly expensive for the quality of the meal with a reasonable wine selection.
Enjoyed it very much.

We went on Valentine’s Day, so very busy but noise level was pleasant and warm. The tables had been decorated and the background music was subtle. Calamari was perfectly cooked (not rubbery and overcooked as it so often can be). The pork belly was crisp and well rendered and the potato and apple mash was perfectly balanced between salty and sweet. The banoffee pie was to die for and the cocktails were expensive but a real treat. My companion was vegan and they offered a separate vegan menu with lots of choice.
I would come here every week if my purse allowed. A perfect treat meal.

Lovely restaurant with very attentive staff. The food was delicious and great value for money. The only issue is parking, it’s a popular place and the parking is limited so you need to get there early enough to find an alternative space.

Sunday lunch for four. We all had roasts. Excellent meat, huge yorkshire puddings, delicious gravy, and too many (well cooked) vegetables for us. Desserts were lovely - merangue pavlovas, tirmasu and chocolate brownies. Good service too. Real value for a great lunch.

Good food and wine .
On a personal level we both would prefer to go straight to our table rather than having to go and wait in the upstairs bar!

A lovely friendly family run restaurant with a warm and cosy ambience! We were made to feel very welcome! The pizzas are excellent and they have a good selection of specials available! There is an excellent variety of fish, the seafood risotto is a must! We have been several times and have never been disappointed! The service is always excellent! Can’t wait to go again!!

As always the food was excellent, accompanied by a very good, and good value, wine. The proprietor is always courteous & welcoming and being a Thursday evening, the restaurant wasn't crowded or noisy. From previous experience it can get a bit boisterous on Friday/Saturday ! My partner who hadn't been before enjoyed her meal and intends to bring her family.

Sat upstairs for the first time and I have to say it was a little bit cramped and noisy. The staff were fantastic as always and the mains were amazing. We were a little disappointed with the size of the starters and the brownie for dessert. When booking next time, I would specify that I would like a seat downstairs.

Wondcrful warm welcome when we arrived at Reggina's on Sunday. Coats all taken to the cloakroom by one of the friendly waiters. Delicious roast lunches with plenty of fresh veg and crispy roast potatoes. Full range of condiments offered. Extra boat of gravy brought on request. Excellent meal all round!

Our favourite spot and go-to every time we get the chance to have a meal out together. Food that gives you the fizz, every time. Unrivalled for me, and at outstanding value or money. The only part I don't particularly like is the way they now appear to direct you towards the bar upstairs prior to seating, as our table "would be ten minutes" when our table was empty and set all along. Not a major, but as drinks from the bar cannot be put on the bill, it is just an awkward intervention and just feels a bit awkward.

We went on a very quiet night after Christmas, with very modest hopes but it was really good. The food was really excellent, lovely fun service and quite a few other diners, so a nice atmosphere. It's a very good place.

Booking system took my booking for a party of six at 2 pm, arrived at 2 pm and we didn't seem to be expected, I was told they closed at 3 pm, we were allowed to stay. Waited half an hour for our main course as the kitchen was obviously winding down, there was no time for a second course as we felt under pressure to leave, staff were clearing all the other tables and resetting for the evening.

Don't take bookings if there isn't time to serve guests properly before closing, service was disappointing food was mediocre and expensive. I wont be going again

Love this restaurant. Service and food is always very good. The only draw back is that it can be drafty and a bit cold - depending on where you sit.

This is such a lovely restaurant. There is a lot of choice in the menu and it never disappoints from the pasta to the steak! We were sat upstairs and had a lovely big table. The lighting is a bit bright which the only thing I would change.

This was not our first time at the restaurant but on this occasion we were seated at the top of the stairs next to the ladies toilet and directly opposite the bar/disco. We had the restaurant music playing but also the different music from the bar, which wasn’t too bad until the disco started then all chance of conversation was destroyed at our table of seven. It caused us to cut short our evening which was birthday celebrations for our daughter, son and his girlfriend. The only saving grace was the lovely staff and the food as four of the party have to have a gluten free diet!
