    Fabulous find. Concentrated menu doing everything well. Very generous portion size and able to take leftovers home. We all had pizza which were excellent.

    As keen foodies, my friend and I wanted a proper restaurant to spend time in prior to the rugby. Firstly, on arrival we were greeted by a friendly member of staff and the restaurant was comfortable and clean. We had a great view of a an impressive wood fired oven dominating one corner of the room, and the smells emanating from the oven were fantastic. The menu is also very impressive. We selected the Arancine and Il Tagliere di Ballaro as starters followed by a pizza and Pappardelle con Crena do tartufo as our mains, delicious! I would highly recommend visiting Ballaro for a truly authentic Sicilian experience, I know I will again. Thank you

    Very noisy due to a family celebration so we couldn’t hear each other. Our favourite starters were not available so quite disappointed. Rest of the food was very good.

    A lovely setting with beautiful food. Super quiet for a Thursday which is such a shame but the takeaway was popular so I desperately hope they continue. Will forever support them. I made a mistake when ordering and the most amazing young lady looking after us sorted my mistake immediately and with kindness. We will be back soon!

    We were very late to lunch so it wasn't busy re ambiance - our fault, but you still served us just the same and no rush. Delicious food, and the fresh cooked, home-made tiramisu you boxed up for us and we took home for a treat later. Loved the calming, beautiful music. We will return....

    Food was lovely, although pizza could have been hotter when it arrived. Main course was slow to arrive but as we had had starters it wasn’t too bad. Menu rather fishy. Would go back though

    A really disappointing visit to what has always previously been a good local for me. Especially so, as I was taking a good friend there and had told them how good it usually is. My last few visits have been midweek rather than weekend and I suspect that made a significant different to the quality of service. A salad and sides were enjoyed by my special guest. My fish salad was OK but wasn't as generous as I recall previously having there and one of the pieces of fish was slightly dry/overdone. But the shocker was being told, very apologetically, that the ONLY vegan option they could offer to the other person in our group was spaghetti in tomato sauce. This was not a problem in itself and it was accepted but it was a tiny possibly starter portion and when the bill we couldn't believe we were charged a whopping disproportionate £11 for it. Previously the vegan guest has had pizza and possibly chips at the restaurant and I can't believe they couldn't have offered some simple veg or salad too. Yes it was a busier night of the week but we were early diners and the restaurant was not even half full when we arrived. Service was inattentive once we'd ordered with quite a wait for drinks. Really put off going again any time soon, which is such a shame.
