“Worth waiting for a table”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014

Caffe Tirreno is a regular filling station for me, my climbing mates and my girlfriend. It's an informal dining experience with a menu to rival any quality restaurant, exceptional value for money means you can enjoy your meal knowing that it's not costing a bomb. The only problem is though, it's nearly always packed full of people not only dinning but queuing to dine. However, I've never had to wait any more than 35 minutes (usually only 10-15) and they have no objections to you taking a seat in the pub next door with a drink and a waiter will come and grab you once a table is ready. It's a small venue that's always full to the brim but I think that speaks volumes about the food and it's value. Always worth the wait. I recommend the Pizza Carnivora.

“Nice food, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

Good service, good food and very reasonably priced for the quality. Got a bowl of olives to start, expecting the usual Zizzi chain skimpy portion, only to get a full bowl of okay quality olives. The main was lovely and very filling. Recommend for a nice night out.

“Afternoon snack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

This cafe is located virtually opposite the turning to alnwick castle and across the road from the playhouse.
I'm gluten intolerant and it was good to read at the back of the menu that they will try and accommodate all dietary needs.
I went off the snacks page good size portions tomato and mozzarella was perfect as was the olives
Excellent coffee.. Nice staff the place should be packed out..fair prices
Highly recommended

“Exceptional value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

Lovely pizza with a nice crisp base, more than enough for two, a bowl of really nice crispy chips, bowl of mixed salad with lots of olives and a nice dressing, pistachio ice cream, Lemon cheesecake, coffee, a coke and a bottle of water. £22. Best value meal I have had in a long time! The staff were really efficient, it was a very busy night but the service was excellent, and well organised. I will certainly go back!

“Great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

This is an unpretentious restaurant giving good value for money. It also doesn't take bookings so you can always get in with a short wait unlike other restaurants in Alnwick
