“Excellent”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

As a local, i feel fairly qualified to comment on Italian restaurants in Bowness and Windermere. Rastelli's is without doubt the best and the locals choice. Food is always to a high standard, especially the steaks!! Staff are amazingly friendly, and the owner Hacksaw Kev Duggan is always very accommodating. Give it a go!

“Excellent pizza but rushed service”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We dined there sat 5th oct after booking earlier that day on the strength of trip advisor reviews as we were staying in Bowness for one night. I would agree with a previous review which said it had a canteen feel. We chose to go as we would rather be in a bustling restaurant with our children. We all chose pizza as we were looking for value for money. The pizzas were excellent but there is no children's option so it was the best part of £10 for a pizza for our 5yr old. The pasta dishes are advertised at £5.95 for kids so it would be worth them being a bit more flexible with the pizzas by offering a smaller one for the kids. As far as the service was concerned - We were in and out in 45 minutes and got the impression they don't like you to linger over your meal. In a nutshell, gorgeous pizza but felt a bit rushed. The kids loved it though which means we would go back if in the area again.

“service indifferent”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Very ordinary ate there friday evening 20th September, paid £10 for basically a bowl of spaghetti, bolognese sauce amounted to less than dessert spoon of mince. Thought the service poor also. Atmostphere more like a canteen than a restuarant
