Even though we were only there for coffee, the staff were friendly and attentive. Good coffee. Pleasantly lighter interior under its new management. We did check out the menu - good range of dishes. Looking forward to trying a meal at the new Mondiali.

Went there with the family for pizza and coffee and the pizza was really nice and the coffee was really nice as well so I ordered another coffee. The service was 1st class and very comfortable surroundings.

Made a booking for Xmas lunch. Confirmed that booking on Xmas Eve. On the day we arrived to find the place deserted and in darkness. First time we have ever eaten out at Xmas trying to make things pleasant for our recently widowed elderly mother. Instead we are left in the street in 40 degrees with nowhere to go. I... More

We were there on a Saturday night and it was extremely quiet. It was a shame because the food was very good and the service was excellent. We had the spaghetti granchio and the fettuccini sampollo - both were delicious. All meals are very generous (they gave us leftovers to take home) and extremely well priced so I hope things... More

This restaurant in its day was very good, but it became very dirty and jaded and the food was not good.. It is now under new management and it has definitely improved, great pizzas.and the staff are very friendly.,however it needs a little more atmosphere.

Called in for lunch on a cold day. We were provided with a nice spot by the fire and asked what we would like to drink. Pleasant. The atmosphere was nice and friendly with plenty of pasta and pizza dishes to choose from. Most enjoyable.

Ordered breakfast oldie, the bacon virtually came out raw, so it was sent back to be cooked properly and by the time it came back everything else on plate was stone cold. It was supposed to have mushrooms but what was served was canned champinion buttons. Worse breakfast ever won't be going back. The one star was for the understanding... More

I went there with my wife to have lunch and as it turned out, ordered the two most expensive items on the manu . Spaghetti marinara and the mixed grill. First off there appeared to be very few staff in the kitchen as we were sitting on an angle close to see in. After ordering there was about a 15... More

A small caveat before i start, i don't normally review things online unless they're worth reviewing. that said, I've never, in my life, met a more friendly, hard-working and passionate restaurant owner. It is obvious how much care and effort has gone into this restaurant recently. everything was perfect. waiters were friendly and helpful. meals were on time and mouthwatering.... More

Good tasty food and service. Wine list is a little light on and then found the only Sauvignon Blanc not available however wine of the month was substituted. Meal came out timely. Realistically 3 1/2
