We went here on a recommendation, and to be fair we should of had the pizza! I ordered the seafood linguine (it's always a personal favourite), but the scallops were mush and it had a very strong FISHY taste. I've had this pasta many times before and I never got that strong fishy taste before where it over powered everything... More

Every time we have eaten at La Favourita we have never been disappointed with their fine Pizzas. We always order Their THIN crusted all dressed Pizzas, their delicious, the BEST. Try their Pizzas, you'll love them.

I've been here with friends 3 times over the last few years and their wood fired pizza oven makes for some great pizza.

This place is known for their pizza, but I was there to try pasta, so can't comment. My pasta was average...my calamari appetizer was disappointing.

Just returned from an amazing birthday meal. 2 adults, 2 teens, everyone loved their meals. Pizza, calzone and canalloni were amazing. Great wine, espresso and especially the service. Will return for sure. reminded me of quaint and yummy restaurants in Tuscany, highly recommend
