“Top quality food at fantastic prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

During our five day stay at the adjoining Travelodge, the food at Durham's little Italy was so fantastic we found ourselves dining there three times Beautifully cooked, authentic Italian food (cooked by an Italian Chef) at absolutely bargain prices. If eating before 18:30 the set menu price of £6.95 (roughly that, can't quite remember) is outstanding considering the quality of ingredients and service. My partner and I also had the pleasure of meeting and being served by the owner of the restaurant, who turned out to very pleasant indeed. Also, during our final evening of eating at the restaurant we found ourselves to be dining next to the Mayor of Durham (who probably has a fair bit of experience in Durham's restaurant scene), who turned out to be a regular. A definite recommendation.

“Top Quality Food At Reasonable Prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

We enjoyed two excellent meals at this restaurant while staying at the adjoining Travelodge for two nights (30th April - 2 May).

On both occasions, the food was first class and the service provided by Karen and Katie was friendly and pleasant.

As starters, I can recommend the Fishcake and the Mussels, (both delicious!!).

Of the two Main courses I had, the "Sicilia" was particularly outstanding although the Meatballs are also very tasty.

All the dishes were beautifully cooked and the prices very reasonable.

Give this place a try, you won't regret it.

“Convenient”

Relatively good food, peaceful environment - not crowded at all. 'Happy hour' discounted prices before 7 pm was a good deal :)
