We thoroughly enjoyed our meals but felt unfortunately neglected by the waiting on staff who seemed too busy chatting to friends/family/each other to pay us much attention. We waited a ridiculous amount of time trying to catch their eye to pay our bill. The chefs were great though and very accommodating.

Visited here on a Friday night, managed to get a cancelled table at late notice but i'd recommend booking. We were shown our table on arrival and the service from the 2 waitresses was 1st class all night. We sat up near the kitchen and pizza oven and it was fantastic to watch the head chef and pizza chef at... More

Quite a varied menu and nice looking fish specials. I had linguine marinara which was lovely and chef was able to make without garlic and chilli which don't agree with me. Lots of fresh herbs on it. Partner had veg risotto which was good. House wine very good. Staff friendly and efficient. Would definitely go back

This was a great find on the way back home from Alnwick. Four of us had pizza all of which were delicious having been cooked in a wood fired pizza oven. My husband had the special fish and chips which he said was delicious too! Would definitely recommend if you're passing by Alnmouth.

Really tasty Italian restaurant serving pizza and pasta and some really delicious local seafood. Very friendly service. Absolutely packed when we were there. But we still managed to get a table and ate far too much. Friendly service, enormous portions and not too expensive either.

The Italia has a really good broad menu, from Italian through to local seafood, fish and chips etc. Our party all enjoyed their food - some really different and unusual pizzas were on offer, and a great range for vegetarians. We caught the end of happy hour 4-5.30pm, which meant we got great value - all pizzas and pastas are... More

Very clean and tidy, the food was amazing and we highly recommend this bar/restaurant. We visited a few bars in this town and this has to be the best we went to.

I took the kids in here after a change of mind from our original venue. One of the local pubs lacked choice for vegetarians and kids meals so we headed for the Italian. We were met by a friendly waitress who sat us next to the kitchens so we could watch the pizza guy cooking my pizza. He was very... More

Popped in during happy hour when food prices are reduced. Cosy, warm restaurant with good service. Kids (11 and 14) had caprese salad and margarita pizzas. We had chicken with potatoes and veg. All of us had desserts afterwards: tiramisu, choc torte, cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding (to die for) . Very nice meal.

Very nice Italian menu but also do a very good selection of fish dishes too. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Only downside is drinks are rather expensive but cannot fault the food.
