It was my first time in Bar Italia. It was a very enjoyable evening. I felt special from the moment I was greeted at the door to the very end of the evening. The service was perfect and the food divine and delicious. The staff really friendly and very helpful in choosing food and wine. Very professional approach indeed. Great choice from both the main food menu and the wine list which was really excellent. The seating was just perfect with the correct social distancing required between each table. You never felt threatened by over crowding. They were very busy on the Saturday evening last and handled everything in such a professional manner. The ambience was perfect and the décor very tastefully done. The toilets were very clean and well kept.Well done Bar Italia I will be back and look forward to another perfect and enjoyable evening very soon again. Thank you.

The food is gorgeous and the atmosphere is laid back. But the real highlight is the staff! On my second visit they remembered me and my friends and said hello and asked us how we were! So lovely to think after weeks they still remember their guests and treat you so well! 10/10 would definitely recommend if you love Italian
