Went here Bank Holiday Monday and socially distancing was good and we sat in the new outside area built for reopening. Food is tasty and service on the ball. Worth a visit.

Because of restrictions, the Fat Italian have provided a purpose built, outdoor shack. It is a heated, cheery, covid safe environment. Amazing, friendly staff, as per usual and beautiful food. Would highly recommend and cannot offer any criticism whatsoever. Thank you!
