Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

A restaurant surprise for Eastleigh as others note. A regular haunt for me. Good Italian food, though maybe the standard menu could do with a refreshing month to month. But far better than chain Italians and not much more expensive. Recommended.

“A great restaurant to have nearby”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Been to La Fenice twice in the last few weeks having been recommended by a friend.We've had a great experience both times with very friendly service and delicious, good value food.

If you couldn't see Eastleigh out of the window you could quite easily believe you were about to walk out on the the canals of Venice.

Great to have a high quality family restaurant close to home, will definitely be going back soon.

“Another magical evening at La Fenice”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

So...another wonderful evening at La Fenice.

Coming from a Sardo background myself, I find it very difficult to find an authentic Italian restaurant over here that truly reflects everything that an Italian meal should be.
They have a fantastic variety of dishes ranging from fresher-than-fresh seafood dishes to cooked to perfection hand-made pasta dishes for everyone to enjoy.

The price of the food is something I did not mind paying at all as it reflects the outstanding quality of the food, unlike the likes of Frankie and Benny's where you would pay the same price for a microwaveable meal with a bit of Tesco's finest Italian seasoning sprinkled on top.

Not only are you presented with a delicious meal in an atmosphere that really does tick all the boxes for a romantic evening, alongside this you are greeted with a lovely warm welcome from the beautiful Maitre d' who through the entirety of the meal was more than happy to help.

Reading through some negative reviews (although very few) on here is pretty infuriating considering that these people clearly do not have a clue of how Italian delicacies should actually be cooked or taste, as I imagine they have only become familiarised with the Amateur British Chef attempt of cooking these dishes.

Could really talk about this place all day.

Beautiful. Traditional. One in a million.

Just got back from La Fenice and have to say it's the best Italian meal we have had in a long time.
Started off with a platter of italian cured meats with cheese and olives with homemade bread and then hubby had homemade salmon ravioli and I had spaghetti marinara. Quality ingredients, beautifully cooked and presented, first class meal with first class service.
