We bought a Groupon voucher to spread our wings re 'places to eat' in Northampton and we were pleasantly surprised.
We parked in The Ridings car park round the corner.
The place is open but with cosy booths.
The starter of calamari was delicious and fresh. We had one lasagne and one penne with pollo (chicken) and we both agreed they were amongst the tastiest dishes we've ever had!
The service was welcoming and prompt.
We'd definitely go back . . . . Voucher or not!
It'd be a brilliant place to hire for a celebration party as it has space.

Just in from an evening at la dolce vita with my 15 year old daughter and what a great evening we had. Fantastic food, great service and whilst we had a Groupon voucher the options were good and varied. Can't understand some of the poor reviews as we couldn't fault it. A special thank you to the waitress who worked extremely hard and who always had a smile on her face.

I also went to the restaurant under a Travelzoo deal. We took 2 friends. We had already paid for the voucher and didn't want our friends to pay towards the remainder as it was our treat. We ordered less than the voucher allowed and bought 1 starter, one coffee and 1 water on top. Our friends wanted to pay their share and kept wondering where the bill was so I went to the waiter and have him £20 towards the bill, expecting the cost to be c.£12. I was expecting to pay a tip on top with the change. He came over and said that the £20 'just about covered it' and in front of my friends I did not object. We then decided to stay for drinks and ordered 3 vodkas and a coffee. When we joked about there being no chocolates with the coffee, the chap kindly bought over a slice of cake for us to share which was warmly received. However, when we asked for the bill, he said it was £20 and only when we queried this did he take off the cake. We paid for the drinks £15 and left. I didn't see a bill. It just struck me as rather dishonest. The food was ok, drinks overpriced and small.

Visited this restaurant on a cold Tuesday early evening in February. Was pleased that the restaurant was warm and inviting. Nice welcome from the Manager who showed us to a large table with comfortable padded bench seats. Not very busy but a few people in. The service was impeccable and menu extensive. Went on a Travelzoo voucher and was able to choose ANY main course on the menu and a bottle of wine.
