Made to wait outside in the cold until the exact booking time even though we had pre booked and the restaurant was empty. Owner rude and insulting. Menu written on old scraps of paper with no prices. Waiter slow and clumsy. Choice of food limited...More

No facy frills, but where else in Winchester can you get a bowl of authentic pasta and a glass of wine at reasonable rates. Italian back street style vs chain restaurants get my vote any day. No wonder it’s taken over the pavements outside!

As it says in the title. Very good food made with excellent ingredients. Pizza with 'ndjuja is a particular highlight, and I tend to simply add it to the capriccosia, but we've been impressed with everything that we've had in the times we've dined here....More

I popped in with my friend for lunch. It was a place I had always wanted to go for a while. I was not disappointed. The atmosphere was great. The staff were singing at one point. It was fun and vibrant. The food was delicious....More

We came in here for a light lunch, just a pizza actually. Tasty and enjoyable place to eat, tables clean and service was good. Whole experience was very good. A place that you want to return to.

The host is friendly but the service remains awful. The food is mediocre even though the host professes to cook what you want. The wine is average but overpriced. Not sure why we ventured here again.

Two of us dined at Tom’s. The food was delicious as always. We have never been let down when we dine here. Starters main and desert were all lovely. Genuine Italian food served by a genuine unique Italian.

We have eaten and enjoyed coffee at Tom's Deli since its beginnings as a Newsagents with a couple of tables for guests. This evening we were treated really badly. We asked the waiter whether it was possible to get dessert -- he initially said "Yes"...More

I visited today as I was craving pasta but wanted to avoid a chain restaurant. Tom’s Deli is the antithesis to these - a local, friendly, family-run feel and kind, helpful staff. I had some truly delicious pasta with pancetta, tomato and chilli, and got...More

Always worth asking Tom. He is always up for new challenges and can easily say no if necessary.

There is seating outside at Tom's so taking a dog should not be a problem.

I don't know for sure. In the summer they have an open air 'bistro' style seating too so there I am sure it is n o problem. Tom is a very friendly and accommodating chap. I suggest you call him and just ask.
