Heard really good things about this place but it didn't live up to expectations. Me & my partner went for lunch & we took our laptop to book a holiday. The seats were really uncomfortable, tables were dirty & my partners cooked breakfast was tiny. Milkshakes were also very small for how much they cost. Will more then likely never... More

A capella is a great place for a family brunch, family celebration, romantic couples night, or even a cinema night at home with the takeaway delivery service. Have been here plenty of times and have always enjoyed the fantastic service and food. Highly recommend a visit!

The lady and I split a 14-inch Adagio, and we couldn't have been any happier. They quickly brought us chili oil and parmesan when we asked for it, and the pizza was cooked perfectly and topped generously. I strongly recommend eating a pizza here, as it is a very good price for such a great meal. Very nice servers and... More

What a delight to have this on my doorstep! Never a disappointment! I have eaten in several times for both breakfast, lunch and dinner and have ordered many takeaways which are to the same standard. Staff are friendly and helpful, food is delicious and as a bonus you can bring your own wine/beer to dinner. From my personal experience, it... More

Happily once again our three grandchildren voted unanimously for a visit to A cappella as an after school treat. As usual we had a very happy time.

Love this place. Awesome pizza (to eat in & take away), plentiful & fresh toppings on a light & crisp base. Pizza perfection! Sensible pricing & a great BYO option. They don't offer gluten free bases & a friend of mine was left with a fairly boring tortilla option. She may not leave 5 stars but for those eating pizzas... More

We visited 'A Cappella' having not been for many years, immediately you're surprised by just how small this restaurant is, it is a shame that they cannot expand a little as it can feel a little claustrophobic. The service is friendly and we ordered our pizzas which arrived very shortly after and they are big! Expect to leave this restaurant... More

Ordered 3 pizzas to collect and they were ready and waiting at the time they said! Their's are thin crust and far superior to anything from another well known delivery company! I have eaten in previously and the atmosphere, service and food quality is excellent. Always a great value experience.

Not only my regular coffee shop but my favourite place to chill after work and on days off. The pizzas are the best I have tasted and if I do not eat at Acappella I will order and collect my pizza. On a dry day I will walk my dogs and enjoy a coffee or lunch outside. I have written... More
