Have been to Checco's a number of times and always had a good meal. Definitely a party place rather than a romantic venue due to the layout of the large room which makes it noisy. On this occassion there were 6 of us so OK. However, they kept us waiting for an hour for the table and when you are... More

We regularly dine here and it's always lovely. The staff are really friendly, the decor is charmingly retro, and the food is great - high quality, big portions, value for money. Also, they don't try and "get rid of" customers as soon as the meal is finished. A really pleasant experience every time!

Had a nice meal here last month and would recommend to others who fancy an Italian. The food was good and was served quite quickly. I am a fan of bit portions but the starter whilst very tasty left me wanting more which I suppose is a good thing if you have a smaller appetite! Main was excellent and was... More

Very welcoming when you walk in. Big smile from the young lady behind the bar. The decor is in need of replacing. It's ' greasy spoon' tables and chairs. The food was good quality but, served by a surly waiter that wouldn't smile even if he was paid to do so. Overall it was slightly better than average. Asked if... More

Signage outside the restaurant is very contemporary and has a stylish Italian theme to it , then you walk into the restaurant and oh what a shock as it's just like a grandma's dining room. Don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with it as it's clean, spacious , high ceilings and very airy , it was just a surprise... More

Enjoyed a family lunch recently the food was superb. I spend a lot of time in Italy and therefor know what Italian food should be like. Excellent choice and value for money.

From outside and the parking lot crammed with 4x4, the glitzy lamps tantalized! Is this some cool swanky disco inspired Italian pleasure nest to fine Italian food??? At the front peering through a substantial stylish but tired door( needs a rub down a varnish and a little love) their where groups waiting to be seated! All having pre dinner drinks... More
