Honestly surprised at the positive reviews. Extremely bland cooking with a sprinkling of mixed herbs. Expectations weren't very high in this tourist hotspot, but was genuinely surprised at the poor quality. Service was friendly though.

Have dined at Rastelli's on many occasions and cannot fault the food or service. The food is always piping hot, extremely tasty and the staff are really attentive and couldn't be more helpful.

Had a beautiful meal- lovely pizza and pasta dish. Garlic bread was to die for. Prices were reasonable and staff were friendly and welcoming. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Dropped in here after a full day on the Lakes and staff were all very helpful and we both enjoyed our pasta meals. Prices were reasonable. A busy night on the weekend but they were able to fit us in.

Beautifully prepared pasta. Great to find an alternative to fish and chips or pub food. Grazi. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere and price of the meal was very reasonable.

Pretty average kind if place with workmanlike food. Pizzas were actually poor, with bases like you buy in supermarket kits. Pasta was fine. There's just nothing to get excited about here.
