On a positive note the staff are very friendly and helpful and the food was really cheap. The downside is the quality of the food. I had a pizza and the cheese on it had the taste and consistency of baby food, not pleasant at all. I can only recommend it if you are taking a kids party there as they may be the only ones who would enjoy the food.

It's a place that tries to act special, but is just average. I've been told this use to be a really good italian place with italian management, chefs and staff. Apparently it was bought over a year or two ago and it surviving solely on the good will the previous owners generated. The food could have been supermarket bought sauces, the pasta was overcooked, the pizzas were nothing special, the garlic bread was just awful, the drinks were flat, etc. - the only good thing was the desserts, but they don't make them. The tipping point for me was that our waiter couldn't understand english very well. If you're in an italian restaurant and the italian waiter has trouble understanding you, it's actually quite nice as it feels authentic and adds to the atmosphere. My 7-year-old daughter asked for water in italian (it's written on the kids menu). They waiter had to admit he was from the Ukraine and could barely understand english, let alone italian.

This is the first time I have ever replied to a Trip Advisor review, but I felt it was necessary due to the comments made on this review.

Firstly, Papa Luigi's has been owned by the Hilton family for 18 years

Secondly, we do not employe any Ukrainian staff

Thirdly, we make 50% of our sweets in the kitchen on a daily basis

As an owner it does make you wonder how and why certain comments which are so inaccurate are allowed to be written

We were staying in the area for the weekend and arranged to meet up with some other friends from St. Helens . I had heard about Papa`s many years ago and trusted it was still ad good. No worries - it was brilliant. Can thoroughly recommend and will call again when in the area. Thanks for an excellent meal.
