Even in December, the early bird deal was available on a wide selection from the extensive menu. My pizza was one of the best I have ever had (I seldom eat pizza as there's usually too much sauce or cheese). The base was thin, the topping not soggy and the flavour, even of the base, couldn't be faulted. And this... More

took my daughter for a birthday meal with my son and his girlfriend, the place itself was lovely, very clean and cosy, the food was lovely, hot and tasty with lots of choice, the service was very slow, as it was early evening and quite quiet I didn't expect to be kept waiting so long between courses, although the staff...

On the occasions when I've eaten here, it has been with groups of friends but unfortunately the quality of service has generally been poor, slow and sometimes staff have been rude. It's a shame, because the menu is so full and the food amazing!

Lovely setting and friendly staff however the food was awful. Very bland and watery. Also we didn't get all the things which are stated on the menu? Wouldn't go again.

First things first, the initial member of staff we encountered (blonde woman, looked like the manager) was lovely and helpful. However as soon as we were sat the service quality plummeted. The waitress we encountered was incredibly, incredibly rude. She wasn't remotely friendly and just clearly didn't want to be there. She didn't even ask if we wanted drinks. She... More

I went to this restaurant with a friend during happy hour today. We were sitting for about 15 to 20 minutes and no one came to take our orders. There were only three tables occupied. I raised my hand and kept it like that for about 30 seconds, like a school child. I was telling my friend that in different... More

Starters can be quite expensive for what you get, but you can't go wrong with a 3.99 main course ham & mushroom pizza. Toppings are generous and I'm surprised the restaurant wasn't busier. Paolo Gianni's is x10 tastier and atmospheric than chains like Bella Italia. Homemade desserts are wonderful and the pavlova is a must if that's your kind of... More

My daughter took us here for Happy Hour (a Tuesday night). Despite being really full, the staff soon found us a table for 6. We all had pizzas and drinks and it only came to £40. The food was delivered quickly and it was lovely. Drinks order got mixed up but was quickly sorted out. 2 of us suffer from... More

We celebrated an important milestone with friends and family. The staff was very kind and helpful. The food was great: I had fish and chips - I know, in an Italian! - and liver for starter. The ice cream for desert was as good as in Italy. Lovely evening.

Thank lylian39
