I visited Rava's for a colleague's leaving doo and was very impressed with the quality of food,selection of menue choices and super value. 10 of us ate here and everyone of us had a great meal. You get a fabulous welcome in a cosy setting with really tasty home cooked Italian food. A return visit is definitely on the cards.

Had a lovely family meal here on Saturday 19th November 2016, we booked in advance as we knew it was popular especially with the early bird menu special offer of 2 courses for £12.95...which was very good and plenty of choices too. The garlic mushroom starter was the biggest portion I have ever had in a restaurant, and the main... More

This is a small and friendly Italian restaurant with a good range of pizze and pasta dishes as well as some meat and fish standards. Booking is advisable as it is justly popular and busy, and the food and atmosphere made this a memorable evening in the night we visited.

Visited the Ristorante Rava with friends back in July. The quality and the authenticity of the food on offer cannot be faulted. Really friendly service, extensive wine list and first class recommendations on wine choice by waiting staff. A place to visit!

You are made to feel very welcome as soon as you walk through the door and the general feel of the place is inviting. It is an Italian restaurant and the ambience is clearly established that way. Last night four of us decided on starters and mains only. 2 prawn cocktails, 1 garlic mushrooms and a calamari later we were... More
