Homely and unassuming, Neri has absolutely no pretensions other than to be a damn fine Italian restaurant. This is home cooking Italian style, kept simple but made with skill, love and excellent ingredients. We've been several times as a family and with other couples and have never been disappointed.

This place is fantastic. The title says it all but I'll go into a little more detail. The quality of the food is very high, the pasta specials can be a little basic but apart form that, it's great. The pizzas are done Italian style and they are really nice, especially when you take the price into account, amazing value.... More

This lovely little restaurant still serves the best Pizza in Newcastle - we visited with friends and had lovely prawn starters and delicious crispy pizza for mains. I can't eat a lot of cheese just at the moment so the chef prepared a lovely cheese light pizza for me, Always a warm welcome too!

We have been fairly regular customers at the bistro for some time now and we wouldn't go to any other Italian. Where else do you get greeted with a hug and kiss? Betty's welcomes are the warmest and Massimo's food is delicious. It is a genuine and cosy atmosphere, perfect for a romantic meal or a gathering of friends. Pizzas... More

Arrived early evening and was greeted with a lovely smile and welcome into the restaurant. The happy hour deal is great! Fantastic value and amazing authentic Italian food. We had calamari and aubergine starters; so fresh and full of flavour. Lots of options but we both decided on pizza. Huge thin pizzas full of fresh flavours! We couldn't manage puddings... More

We pop down around once a month and both the service, food and wine never disappoint. Very good value and good quality food. I can't believe that the Domino's over the road is still in business!! Very child friendly (like Italy) and our two girls love it, especially the calamari. When on, the Roman dishes are particularly good!! Will be... More

My partner and I enjoyed the traditional and cosy atmosphere in this small, authentic Trattoria. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. However, the food was less than average and the portions were far too small for the price. The meal started promising, with a slightly underseasoned, but enjoyable pizza. The biggest let down were meatballs, which were tiny and... More

Dear Joanne S, Thanks for your review and apologies for the late reply. It's nice to see that you liked the atmosphere of the Bistro and the service and we thank you for your comments. As far as the food, allow me to say that our meatballs are 'small' because we serve them with pasta dishes and NOT on their... More

Lovely little Italian bistro serving very good food. It is small so would recommend booking, especially at weekends. There is a happy hour each day. Not much parking nearby but it is close to South Gosforth metro. Well worth a visit.

This is a delightful bistro with good specials board We used to go regularly but then it did not seem as good and had not been for over 18 months but really enjoyed our food this time. It is small and easy to talk without straining to hear!
