What a spot to have a restaurant! Cannot fault this venue, especially in the summer it really is the place to be!! We always visit here for special occasions such as birthdays etc. The food is fantastic with plenty of choice and huge quantity - I quite happily have a starter with sides for my main. If you haven't visited,... More

We met friends here for lunch. The food was okay but not brilliant. It certainly didn't live up to the prices on the menu. Also I should suggest that they get a decent cleaner in to polish the windows to enable guests to enjoy the view. Additionally someone needs to clean the toilets and make sure there is sufficient toilet... More

Lovely setting, beautiful food, extremely helpful staff especially Guido who recommended the special dishes and wine and was a thoroughly wonderful person to get to know. We were felt very welcome and it's a highly recommendable restaurant.

Wonderful evening from start to finish. The night after Valentines day provided a quiet evening at Rossini's but this allowed for a very personal service with recommendations off the menu proving to be the highlights. Borata to start is a must, wonderfully opulent and flavoursome, to be accompanied with the chateubriand as a main. The portion was huge, enough to... More

Have just got home after the most fantastic lunch at this beautiful riverside restaurant. Everything about this place is magical - the location is just perfect with wonderful views of the river and there is even a tame swan coming to visit on the terrace. The food and service were excellent, and they know how to do an espresso martini!... More

We have been coming here for years. Remember Andrew Lloyd Webber's famous restaurant review about 'no crab' in the early 2000s. We normally try in the summer to sit outside and take in the lovely views, it's been very hit and miss over the years. Our first try in its new format. They deserve success. The menu is classic Italy.... More

We had a beautiful family celebration here on Saturday lunchtime. Authentic, tasty Italian food. We were all looked after by very attentive staff, who catered for our every whim (even though I was being very demanding as I wanted it to be perfect for everyone!). The food was brilliant, the setting wonderful, and even the weather was lovely. The best... More

Nice enough food and great location but time for a refit internally and more importantly some staff training on service would be a great investment. Continually reminding the staff to bring things you've ordered and asked for is frustrating .. I think Manuel from Fawlty Towers would have fitted in quite nicely here.

Our seats were fine although a blind to shade us from the bright winter sun would have been nice. The menu was suspiciously long and contained superfluous adjectives such as 'tasty'. I won't speak for my fellow guests but here's what I had and what I thought of it. They brought us an amuse bouche. A little square of vegetables.... More

Visited here on a Saturday evening with high hopes of a traditional Italian meal in a wonderful setting. Staff were very welcoming - but the room was so cold we actually held on to our coats for the entire evening! The starters were lovely and the service, although a little slow, was very professional. The main courses, however arrived on... More
