We had become tired of our local Italian but heard it had new owners so gave it a try with some friends. The food is delicious, really enjoyed it. They may need to brush up a bit on the service, we felt quite neglected as...More

The atmosphere at Quo Vadis feels like you're on holiday in Italy. It's genuinely Italian tasting food, plenty of it and cooked by an Italian guy who owns the place. The young lady who served us was very nice and helpful.

Not easily impressed by Italian food (pasta, pizza, yah yah, yawn) but this place really is superb. A mini-bruschetta as a pre-starter as gratis, specials that actually felt special, and food that was super super fresh. Service exemplary. Cannot recommend highly enough. Well done team...More

This is great. It's an actual Italian run by actual Italian people serving actual Italian food in an Italian atmosphere with all the Italian trimmings. If you want a mediocre, English, hipster Italian experience visit Polpo in town; if you want an authentic Italian experience...More
