We stopped here for lunch and were extremely delighted with both the quality of food and portion size (this is not what you would call a light lunch)
Attentive staff and pleasant surroundings - we will certainly return on our next visit to the lakes

After our visit last year, Dodds was on the list for a return meal, which turned into two visits this particular weekend. Don't mind the wait, or the crowded restaurant, it just adds to the atmosphere. Great food, pleasant staff, and visual kitchen all adds up to a most acceptable experience. Will be back on our next visit later in the year.

We stopped here twice during our visit to Ambleside and both times the food and service was excellent!

I would highly recommend it if you like Italian food.

This restaurant came recommended to us. Happily we were not disappointed. Staff are cheerful ,service excellent, and very reasonable prices. No booking allowed, just turn up. There was 5 of us and we got a table on arrival just before 7 on a Saturday evening.

Having just completed a 3 hour evening walk to Rydale Water and the Caves my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful late supper at Dodds in Ambleside. The restaurant is usually very busy but there we a few tables available at 9:00pm despite being a Saturday night.

We enjoyed sharing whitebait and Diavlo Pizza and both were very fresh and perfectly cooked. The tiramasu was superb to finish with. Service was prompt and attentive. Prices are good value for money especially the drinks/wine list. Would definitely recommend a visit and would return when next in the Lakes.
