“No real Italian ambience but lovely food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Literally just opposite the Park Inn. Food was lovely, especially the pizza and garlic bread. Food and drinks prices reasonable. Definitely worth stepping outside the hotel for dinner. We'll eat there again if we stay here before an early morning flight.

“Good basic food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

Not much to look at, and people may be inclined to walk past, but they give very pleasant service and good basic Italian-style food at a good price.

“Are these other reviews a joke? Save money and avoid!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

Went to Il Brasilico with a friend on the strength of other reviews here. Restaurant looked closed from the outside! Once inside, the place smells horrible in a way that hits you the moment you walk in, Pizza and pasta alike were virtually tasteless and nowhere near the standard of chains such as Prezzo, Zizzi or ASK which this place makes out it competes with. My friend actually commented that her "diet coke was the best part of the meal"! Some dishes are over-priced too. They also add a compulsory 10% service charge onto the final bill - for what service, we're not sure as service was poor to say the least. The waiter even had to be reminded we had ordered drinks. To add final insult to injury, despite only being 2100, we were rushed out of the restaurant as if they were desperate for us to leave! There were only 2-3 other people eating there - it is any wonder why?! Please avoid this place.

“Early evening eating ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013 via mobile

Across the road from the Park Inn this small restaurant provided a quick, good value two course early evening supper. Fresh tuna salad to start, meaty pizza to follow, a couple of Peronis and all for a little over £20

Difficult to beat quality wise, or for price

“Good place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

We were staying at the park inn for a Lego land break.
We checked out the hotel restaurant which looked nice but the menu is limited.
I decided to drive into Windsor but upon leaving the car park we spotted this restaurant.
Rather than driving into town we ate here.
It is like a cafe inside, but the food is really good.
There is only one waitress and service can be slow.
locals were calling in for takeaway pizzas so always a good sign.
Don't let the deco and the plastic menus put you off, the food is great.
