We had the pizza's, just superb and great value for money with the Vittoria card.
The service was also very prompt considering how busy they were.

My partner and I own a vittoria card... The July offer is 2 courses for £10! great value, but my partner had called to enquire about the vittoria card menu and we were told a selection of things were available, including calamari! However when we arrived the menu consisted of very little choice, (no calamari) And the waiter was not accommodating. Infact was disinterested! The food itself is quite nice, but the service is rubbish and you feel very hurried out the door! Might go again if there is calamari on the deal!

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you have a Vittoria card as it is free to sign up and comes with terms and conditions subject to availability. All conditions are posted on the web site to eliminate any confusion. I am sorry if our server was not attentive. I will be investigating this incident to ensure that it does not happen again.

The only place that rivals Favorita for the quality of pizza is Jolly, about a half mile to the south. But Favorita is more modern, has loads of attentive staff who look happy to be there and very nice drink and dessert options.

Thank you for your review. I can recommend that we make all the dough in house daily and use authentic Italian ingredients. I hope that your next review might favour La Favorita a little more.

Regards,

The bean and bacon is chock a block full of delicious veggies and meaty bacon. The mushroom soup...equally amazing and brimming with quality ingredients. The veggie pasta is also a delight. And the pizzas...wow. Affordable 2 course lunch 8.99. The manager is a very friendly, funny guy and the wait staff is perfection. Hi to Peppe!
