Another great meal here. Lovely fresh pizza, friendly staff and great service. A firm family favourite. Would love to see meatballs and lasagne back on the menu.

Lovely early evening meal. Delicious pizza. Hot, fresh and nothing like the popular takeaways - which is meant in a very complimentary way! Friendly service on a quiet, early evening visit midweek. Looking forward to our next meal!

We went on a Tuesday evening a couple of weeks ago and were looking forward to it. The menu was quite small so my son and I went for Carbonara. I'm used to Italian dishes being massive but I think it was around £13 and...the plate that arrived was really small. The pasta was more like soft noodles and although tasty, it wasn't what I would expect. I have a feeling the chef might have been off that night, was disappointing.More

We ( 4 of us) recently ate at Tony’s and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The restaurant is based on an American diner with film posters from the ‘50s and’60s on the walls and red seated booths-at least on the ground floor- to have a drink...or a meal in. The music compliments the setting admirably.They have a fairly comprehensive standard Italian menu but with ‘specials’on every day/evening. The starter of grilled mushroom topped with dolcelatte cheese and accompanied with a couple of small grilled tomatoes was simple but delicious.I had the Tuscany soup - cannellini beans with pasta in delicious stewy liquid ; it was wholesome but not too filling. For mains we had hake with mash and broccolli and/or a beef ragu- where the meat melted in the mouth. There is a good choice of sweets and ice cream. The staff out front and in the kitchen are relaxed and welcoming making the whole experience a delight. It is simple, honest cooking at its best and it wont break the bank!More

Finally, a fruits de mer pizza that ticks all the boxes. Super tasty, perfect size, loads of fish. Really enjoyed it and will be back for more. Partner had the Garden, and she loved it too! Nice to support a local independent at this time.

To whom it may concern, My Wife had a lovely Fettucine Bolognese at this restaurant. Unfortunately, my Breast of Chicken turned out to be thighs and bits of the base of the chicken carcase! There was a thin sauce, 'water like' with mushrooms swimming therein....I was so appalled I didn't complain, although when I paid the bill, my wife said she was happy with her meal but the other one was disappointing. I feel so angry about the meal I was given that I would like others to decide whether the Breast of chicken I was expecting is something they would like to experience. If I had started to explain my disappointment to the Staff, my anger management classes would have to be cancelled! I should have made a big scene about this, but that's not my thing. Far better to inform future customers to avoid this dish. Arrived on time for our pre-booked table - our order was taken at 7.20pm the'meals' arrived 25 minutes later, Verryy slowww serviccce!!!!!!!! Please have second thoughts about this 'Taste of Italy' it really isn't worth the visit. I don't think we will be returning. I never bother to comment unfavourably, normally, but I feel so strongly about this particular experience. from Mr Very disappointed.More
