We enjoyed a delicious lunch at La Bruschetta. The food was beautifully presented and the service was excellent! The restaurant has a terrific vibrant atmosphere, great fun! As it is fairly small and very popular I would certainly advise booking a table in advance. Be aware it's closed on Sundays and Mondays.

The first time we went there was purely by chance when my daughter was starting at uni and we fell in love with it then for its fab food and great atmosphere. That was 3 years ago and we go back every time we visit her as a treat. We have never been dissapointed. Yes it is expensive as with starters and wine you are looking at £50 per head but as a treat it can't be beaten. The waiters are just delightful company for the evening and appear to me to be part of the business rather than simply food transporters. We were there on 30th January 2014 for Megan's 21st and had a great time. Tiny point - new pudding with meringue not as good as other desserts. Even the coffee is fab!

Had a superb meal at this restaurant to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday. It was a great evening. The food was plentiful and delicious - authentically Italian. The staff were really helpful and created a great atmosphere. We'll be back!

Went here with friends for an anniversary meal on a very high recommendation, and boy were we not disappointed!
You have to book as it's quite small and intimate, but you can feel the warm and friendly ambience the minute you walk through the door!
The tables are beautifully set with crisp white tablecloths and napkins, so you know what to expect.
The food is simply superb! It's quite an extensive menu with something for everyone.
Some of our party selected the scallop starter - delicious! - with others choosing the lovely avocado and crab and the salmon carpaccio - great!
3 of us had veal dishes for mains - the cutlet is highly recommended and rightly so! - and others had the most delightful Fritto Misto, which they said was superb and one of the best outside of Italia!
The wine list had a great selection and was more than reasonably priced.
The service was also spot on, with Paolo our main server. Although only working part time, as he's now retired, he couldn't have been better! Attentive, knowledgeable, efficient, warm and friendly without being intrusive, he enhanced our dining experience.
Cannot recommend La Bruschetta enough! Certainly one of the best Italian restaurants we've been to outside of Italy! Try it, you won't be disappointed!
