We visit here often, the service and food is always excellent. We turned up at 12 on a Sunday lunchtime, the place ended up full within the hour. Always a good sign. Good was amazing but my only niggle was that I ordered spaghetti bolognese and the whole dish was mixed together and I prefer the bolognese on top of... More

The restaurant that turns into a nightclub, always wanted to see what it was like during eat hours. Despite the recommendations, Spags is really quite average. Its got a help yourself salad bar, not very interesting unless you want to fill yourself up on lettuce and croutons with a big dollop of mayo. The food itself was quite average, nothing... More

This is a superb relaxed Italian restaurant. It's a simple formula, you queue for a table and there is a decent and varied menu plus great specials. It's not formal and has loads of atmosphere. They do limited seafood, but what they do they do well. Pizza's and pasta's are very good. but the meat dishes of chicken and steaks... More

Lovely surroundings for a smashing meal even though the stairs up were a nightmare for a disabled person ! We all had something Italian for lunch and a set 2 courses for £6:95 was great. Lovely chicken starter, then pizza. Others had Italian sausage, lovely spinach soup then bolognese, cheesy garlic bread ! A great meal at a great price.... More

We went there on Saturday night and it was very busy. It wasn't even in term time! I rang at 7pm to see if there was space for us, and they said that there was. But only just, as it turns out! So it's popular, and according to their website you can only book if you are in a group... More

Lively atmosphere. Good service. The wine and food were very good for all 3 of us. My seafood pasta was crammed with prawns, calamari, muscles and fish. The prices are very affordable and good value for the quality.

After many lovely visits to La Spaghettata, we didn't hesitate to go again on this day trip/ Christmas shopping trip to Durham. We had to wait for a table but it was a busy lunchtime & the lunchtime menu is very good value. As we were seated the waiter gave us menus - but not the special lunch time menu... More

My mother and I decided to try out this restaurant and we certainly weren't disappointed! Very lovely food which is reasonably priced and a lovely authentic feel to the place. The service was also fab - we will definitely return.
