Ate here whilst visiting my sister. Turned up seated swiftly served drinks before I had even returned to from the ladies room (only thing they were so quick to take the order that they assumed all 4 of us would be having wine so had to wait to order the beer). We went for the wine and garlic bread deal,... More

Visited this place with our daughter who is at the university. Had a bottle of the house white which came with complimentary garlic bread. One pizza, a pasta dish and a chicken dish ordered. All delicious. Free salad available for those who want it. This place is a good find and can get quite busy on a weekend as we... More

Really enjoyed visiting this restaurant. It is hidden away upstairs and the stairway and first impression was not representative of the amazing restaurant. Quite a big restaurant and it was full, which is quite impressive for a Wednesday evening. The food was good quality tasty Italian food. It is very good value for money. Waiters were also very friendly.

We visited recently after a long gap - great memories of amazing food here! But the chicken dish I remembered so well turned out somehow to be dry and greasy at the same time. The food quality just wasn't great - it felt like it had been taken over by students and the food had changed accordingly. Ended up feeling... More

Nice atmosphere, clearly popular with students (and their Mums and Dads!). Basic, plastic laminated menu didn't inspire confidence, but we were wrong, the food was great (plus there were lots of specials on the blackboard too). The seafood linguine was wonderful - mussels, prawns, calamari and salmon. No room after that for anything more substantial than ice cream, but that... More

Had a wonderful evening at La Spaghettata eating delicious food. Visited with two children who both enjoyed the evening and found room to eat dessert even after large helpings of pasta and garlic bread.

I had eaten here while in Durham on business so when we were stopping over on our way to Scotland, I was keen to bring the family. They didn't disappoint. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere was vibrant and the service excellent. I would definitely come back when next in Durham.

Ate here on the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. Typical Italian restaurant up quite steep stairs. The pasta dishes were lovely accompanied by a salad trolley which was included in the very reasonable price. The portions were large and freshly cooked. We would definitely return if we were in the Durham area

Have been here on several occasions now and have to say we've never been disappointed yet. The food is of a high standard and you get to eat in great surroundings, served by very efficient staff. Highly recommended !
