This is the perfect setting for a lazy saturday or sunday afternoon with friends. They have alfresco tables as well as indoor seating. We sat inside. On weekends they have a live band which is unusual for a restaurant. What is good about this place is its not bar food, the food is EXCELLENT! We had the Prego Calamari pizza... More

The food has been consistent for years - and the quality has never changed. Cocktails in Jugs, great staff and afternoon live music - what more could you want?

After reading the reviews , thought of trying this restaurant out. Not impressed with the food . Service was excellent but their baked pasta had a funny old cheese taste. Pizzas were also not the best. Chairs were not wiped and had food on them . Tables were sticky. I personally wouldn't come back.

This place has a wonderful atmosphere and good Italian food. The portions are good and the food never disappoints. The music can be a bit loud during the day. The staff are great and very attentive.

Pizza, pasta, prego fayre, great atmosphere, friendly staff, decent food and drink. I liked the range of starters, and the very large range of pizzas, that we just liberally shared between 8. Got a bit rowdy with other groups, and the toilet facilities are a bit on the undercooked side, but for an Englishman, it was a very cheap night... More

Visited Topo Ginio again to see if they can do even better than last time... And the did! They over delivered and the pizza I had this time was even better than before (didn't even know it could get better) my wife had one of the house wines and she was happy with what the waiter suggested. All in all... More
