Having been a huge fans of this restaurant, my daughter and I stopped in for lunch on yet another pilgrimage to Newcastle to visit my son. I ordered my favourite chicken liver pate, it was delicious as usual. Followed by chicken and mushroom risotto, which whilst just as tasty as usual, was unfortunately Luke warm and had half a wishbone in it. It was the lucky half, so I can't be too harsh. We didn't have time to wait for the dish to be sent back for correction as we were wanting to get pitch side before kick off. The guy front of house has said he will speak to the kitchen and "sort something for our next visit". We will visit again, we like the place and would still recommend it.
Food was very cold … coffee was cold…. Forgot things. Cinnamon toast was cold and awful. The salmon was freezing, so fishy and made the thin toast cold.
Warm friendly greeting on arrival. We had booked in advance. Clean table in the naughty corner. Prompt efficient service. Lunch special menu excellent value,great choice, perfect food. Good vibe, quite busy but nothing too much trouble for the staff. Would genuinely recommend.
Lovely food, lovely atmosphere and very reasonable prices! One of the nicest lasagna's I have ever had!!!
Perfect casual atmosphere great food excellent service.
Had a really lovely meal here. Tasty food. Nice staff.
Lovely food but fish was overcooked, in hindsight should have sent it back but taste was lovely. Would go again..
Always good to go to Trattoria. Super staff make it a special time every time
Good food, lovely staff. Very busy on Saturday night.

We had a lovely time for our evening meal with friends and our dog great place would definitely recommend xxx
Lasagne gorgeous xxx
Lovely food and good service. Rang first to book a table and was told it was fully booked - meanwhile my wife was on the app and managed to book a table no problem.
Booked for 5.15 pm, Seated to the table straight away , service for drinks and menus immediately!
Ordered Bread and olives
One Vegetable pizza and a child’s carbonara and a pepperoni pizza! We can’t fault the food or service at all !
The total surrounding were wonderful and didn’t feel rushed, even with a toddler, they came with a smaller spoon!
Kids 2 courses £6 with a drink , who can complain at that , especially when your child eats well and loves Italian food .
Pizzas were outstanding,
And we will be back ..
Thank you La Trattoria
Our first visit post pandemic.
Excellent service from our waitress. Food, Arancini, Pizza and Chocolate Brownie all superb. Great wine list, comfortable surroundings.
A really super lunch experience.
A very enjoyable dining experience. The food was delicious and the waiting staff were very good.
Our meal last night was so good just like it always is
As near to real Italian as you will get in UK. Loved it.
Nothing the same sadly - this was a favourite eatery for us pre lockdown. However, not the same quality or “Italian” feel as we knew before. We cannot comment on the Pizza as we chose pasta dishes. My husband had the meatballs with linguine ; the meatballs were nice but the sauce was totally tasteless and bland without any “Italian” flavour. I had linguine vongole which had an ok flavour but the pasta had been tossed with the liquor and was full of tiny pieces of smashed up clam shell which was quite unpleasant to eat - I was very hungry as hadn’t eaten since breakfast in anticipation of usual good meal, so I persevered picking shell out of my mouth - ugh. We paid and left without commenting to host as place was buzzing - perhaps that is the problem, too much easy custom, or perhaps just a bad day; sadly we will not be rushing to book again. (The morning croissants and coffee are excellent)
Fab food and great price, I would definitely recommend
Had to wait a long time for our food. Short staffed in the kitchen perhaps?
Amazing food and brilliant service. Friendly and attentive staff.
I did book even though it was Thursday lunch time, and it was quite busy. The food was very nice, and the lunch time menu is good value. Nice efficient staff, all good.😁
Great fun place, polite staff, delicious food and a lovely vibe.
Beautiful Italian restaurant. Warm welcome and shown to our table with table water, menus & quick service. Gorgeous interior and delicious food. Wide range of choices, high quality ingredients & cooked to perfection. Gentleman behind the bar even charged my phone (had been Camping nearby & was out of battery for Sat nav home - huge help). Dog friendly & ample car parking right outside on the square. Couldn't recommend more!
Excellent food, friendly and efficient staff . Definitely recomend,nice experience.
Food was excellent quality. Delicious! Service was attentive but not overwhelming. Nicest dining experience for a long time.
Family day out with grandson - Thirsk Races then meal
Excellent food and service. Really nice feel to the place.
Very family oriented restaurant. We both had pizzas. Base very light and crisp. Topping of tomato sauce a bit bland and not enough on the pizza. Over generous with the actual topping. Deserts were excellent. A tad noisy for our liking. Excellent range of drinks.
Great evening here, lovely staff and food is fabulous and consistently fabulous, each time we go which is maybe every few months we have constantly enjoyed beautiful fresh tasting food.
Nice little cafe/bar serving a good variety of meals and drinks throughout the day. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and scrummy food with good friendly service.
Friendly and professional staff serving beautiful food. Only slight reservation was the number of dogs in the bar and the eating area!
The table we were sat at was right next to the toilet it was disgusting people kept leaving the toilet door open this should not be a seating area. If we get put there again we will walk out. The waiters are not very attentive when you are sat upstairs. The food is nice but not enjoyable when toilet fumes are floating over, I am shocked that this is allowed.
Lovely meal as ever. So lucky to have this on our doorstep. :-)
It was lovely, food good, staff good.
The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Definitely another visit
We had a very enjoyable meal. The starters (heritage tomato bruschetta, tomato & mozzarella salad) were delicious, our main courses (risotto & pollo con broccoli) were excellent. The melting chocolate brownie dessert with ice cream was wonderful. Service was friendly, fast and efficient.
Excellent food and service, highly recommended and will visit again.
