We were visiting Southwell and came across Piano as a very convenient place for lunch. We had their lunch menu with broccoli soup followed by salmon. Good value for money, good service and propylene service even though they were very busy. Georgian house, our room was wooden panelled.

Just what I've been looking for an Italian that tastes like an Italian, with what must be one of the best views in Nottinghamshire. Massive menu so plenty of choice for everyone, top class service, ever meal was beautifully cooked, reasonable pricing, easy parking, lovely old building, couldn't report one fault. We will definitely be back.

Booked at the last minute and spoke to a courteous member of staff who took our booking. On ou arrival we were greeted and offered a selection of tables in different parts of a busy restaurant . The pianist who was playing was a pleasant addition and when he wasn't playing, the background music added to the ambience. The menu's... More

The building here is fabulous, down a little alley by the cathedral,you go through the doors into a beautiful little room with wood panels and a glass panel that opens up onto some decking with a view of the cathedral. So romantic, on top of that the food is spectacular I had green lipped mussels to start in a white... More

We had a fun night there with great food ( good sized portions too for hungry eaters!). The atmosphere had a real buzz. Service prompt and friendly and Thursday nights they have a fab guitarist who is dynamite! Make sure to sit in the conservatory to see him. It made our night. Great view over the Minster.

We have been here 2 or 3 times and found the service and food first class. Tonight we were equally delighted, the starters were tasty, and the mains were first class. I had the chicken pollo, my wife had the lasagne which was enormous, however we still found room for the desert. Wine was good, service excellent, waiter a most... More

My second visit. The first was so good I booked 16 in and they coped superbly. All my group thoroughly enjoyed their meal - no downside at all. Some tables have lovely views over the Minster. Thoroughly recommend Piano.
