Food was 4 star. My frutti de mare was exellent, well cooked penne, plenty of fish and shellfish and an excellent white wine sauce. In our party the steak was really good and the pizzas very tasty. Service was 3 star. Too few staff but ably led, tried hard but it was all a bit frantic. Atmosphere was dire and... More

Fabulous place . Call here every Sunday for Tea with my Dad. Wish they'd serve skimmed (Red Top) Milk though for lattes as I have an intolerance to too much green or blue top milk and I prefer lattes to tea. I've mentioned it before but I'm yet to see them take the suggestion on board. Still, it's a small... More

Visited last night with the family, food was beautiful garlic bread with tomato then a huge gorgeous chicken valdostana with chips. The only problem I had was we were seated next to the kitchen which was rowdy with the clashes of plates. Didn't have room for dessert. The coffee was weak though.

Have eaten here twice now, and both times the food has been mediocre or poor. I ordered bruschetta, which came as barely toasted french bread (not very Italian), unripe/hard salad tomatoes with no detectable oil, garlic or basil dressing - instead a sugary, nasty balsamic glaze drizzled. Not what my Italian friends and relatives would consider authentic at all!! I... More

This is a terrible restaurant and we wouldn't recommend it at all - the thing is that the staff seem to know it and are almost apologetic !!

A recent family celebration which included 2 children under 5 years and one child of 7 years. The staff were very friendly and accommodating for us. The food was absolutely delicious and well presented. The drinks were also very nice, if on the pricey side. Would definitely recommend and will be going back.

The food served in Martino's is excellent with a varied choice at very reasonable prices - the staff are very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was brilliant. A well worth trip and the Sunday breakfast is well worth trying.
