We just love this Italian. The food is top notch, staff are friendly and it has a good atmosphere, especially on a Friday night. To start, we opted for a variety of breads served with a delicious virgin olive oil and balsamic. Next we had...More

Appreciate the comment re the food but concerned as to the comment re brusque and occasional rudeness, which is not what our staff want. Would appreciate if thisr reviewer contact us to explain when and who so that we can look into.

Upsetting to get this review. Whilst we have had a few new staff they do not make a habit of dropping things and service should not be rushed or slow, there is the right balance. However denigratiing our locals is not the way to post...More

Fresh, well prepared and elegantly served. Starters and main dishes were excellent. The choice of wines ample and service pleasant. One could ask for no better and the surrounding "village" atmosphere is quaint. Just add good weather (when possible)...

Description
Artigiano shows just how glossy Italian high style can be, with its stylish chrome interior, high-concept lighting, rear glass ceiling, and glass front that opens like pairs of welcoming arms when the weather allows. Don't miss the 'Oscar' donated by a satisfied diner. Lunches are relaxed and calm, while dinners are buzzier. The confident, modern Italian menu's most popular dish is the spaghetti with fresh crab and rocket with a spicy crab sauce. Old favourites have got a delicious new twist, like carpaccio with homemade pesto dressing or calf's liver with wild mushrooms and fava beans. High style, great food. Please be aware, bookings for Saturday nights must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance.
