“A very welcoming good value Italian”
Reviewed 13 June 2012

We were asked to turn up early as two large groups were eating that evening. We were made very welcome by the friendly staff and the owner. The staff are a delightful "European" mix; Polish chef, Albanian and Italian waiters all very happy to serve us and bring on the good quality food and wine. Starters of Calimari and Penne alla Arrabiata were delicious, suitably sized portions: for mains my wife had steak (MR) in a cream sauce which was spot on and delicious; our companion had tagliatelle carbonara which he pronounced "so good". My steak, in a rich mushroom/ tomato sauce was large and although ordered MR was very rare; no problem, when pointed out it was taken away, cooked to perfection, and returned in freshly made sauce together with a new side dish of vegetables. However, the desserts, whilst OK were not of the same high standard; my wife's pistachio ice cream was "just green" no nuts or interest and my creme brulee had a layer of uncooked sugar beneath the caramalised top. The house red wine, Montipulciano d'Abruzzo was very good and at a fair price. So, in sum, a very friendly, good value evening with some very tasty food; only the desserts restrict La Torre to four stars.
