If your tired of going to italian restaurants and being bomabarded by the stereotypical Italian classics of spag bol, lasagne, fettuchini etc, etc then this is the place for you. A beautiful selection of exquiste Italian dishes, all tapas sized so you can try a really good selection of the menu. We let the server order for us and pair it with a nice wine- they know what they're doing so trust in them. The only thing I would say is that if your not a seafood fan then this is probably not the place for you, one of the people in our group found it to be slim pickings for non seafood dishes.

You can eat at the bar here which makes it a friendly place for a solo traveller. The bar staff are happy to recommend wines and food and happy to chat when they aren't busy... which they really are as the night progresses. Plenty of another diners at the bar too. The food is tasting/tapas style, so pick a couple of dishes. For that reason it would also be a great place to go with a group, more options for sharing.

Definitely recommended.

This is a great wee restaurant where the service is fantastic, but you have to get in before 6pm to get a table or there'll be a long wait!
The food is fabulous and although served in a tapas/share plate style, there just wasn't enough on each plate. Order meatballs for example and you'll get 3.

Definitely worth a visit but be aware you'll need at least 2-3 dishes per adult and breads to make it a decent feed :)

The food and service at Ombre is amazing. We had a group of eight people and we went with the 'trust' menu - our server picked out amazing dishes and wine for us. The stuffed olives and meatballs were my favourites. Such great food and a great price.
