    Large restaurant. We had the seafood pasta and seafood pot. My seafood pasta lacked a little taste, but it was still very delicious. The seafood pot was amazing! Suuuuper generous with the seafood which was awesome. Would recommend this location - but it’s not exactly your everyday cheap Italian place. Very authentic and had great service

    Been eating at Demartinos for many years. Food was excellent, as always. Always nice in Summer when the windows are open, as keeps noise levels down and easier to chat.

    Enjoyed our evening. Some dishes were better than others. Highly recommend the pasta with rib eye steak. Good bruschetta too. The seafood pasta was good but could have had a little more flavour. Miss the white table cloths, which gave the place a smarter feel. I guess their removal might be for covid reasons (easier, quicker and cheaper to clean a wooden table top). Friendly staff. I would/will return.

    A perfect mid range Italian that everyone would want to find as their local. Good portion sizes and, for the area, priced well. Service was attentive and fast although I had to prompt for an additional drink and the bill. These were minor quibbles and corrected fast. Nice touches including a chef's snack and a limoncello at the end. Nite when the bill is paid the call to add a tip is a bit ott as the machine remained in the hands of the server making it very difficult to select the no tip option. This isn't the USA folks. That said I'd be happy to return and I enjoyed it totally
