Busy Valentines night with a fullhouse and the restaurant delivered as always. 10 out of 10 food and service, even with a fullhouse. Got the Mascalzone, pasta arribiata and penne bolognese...same authentic taste we are used to. Proper home made ingredients bring a taste of Italy.

Valentine’s Day meal was amazing as were the staff who kindly let us in despite some complications. My seafood pasta was absolutely delicious and packed with seafood. The calamari starter also took me right back to my travels on the Amalfi coast. Just a note of warning however, at peak times I would call to confirm a booking because when we arrived we were told they were receiving more open table bookings than available seats so bookings made on the night were actually invalid even though opentable was showing availability - they however still seated us as the guy calling the shots was kind and appreciated that we had come all the way.

More staff are needed, the ones that were there were rushed off their feet on a busy, early evening Saturday. Had to ask for everything from water for the table, to clearing the table, to the bill.....
Some menus need to be replaced, unhygienic in how old looking they are!

It was a good thing that I booked. The place was heaving within minutes of my booking. Food was good albeit the desserts were overpriced. Would definitely book again.

Portion size is big, so ideal to share if you want to fit in a dessert as well as starter and main course. Cant wait to come back!

Need a better updated menu. Service was good but found the menu very limited and a bit boring.

I made the booking via open table. I mentioned on there that we will be going to celebrate my daughters birthday. When we got to the restaurant all the staff where really welcoming and wished my daughter happy birthday they even went that one step further and decorated our table with birthday confetti which she loved. The staff were all really friendly and attentive making recommendations where necessary. When my daughters dessert came out they all came and played music and put a candle on her souffle which made her feel so special. They did all this off their own accord. Brilliant customer service, lovely authentic italian food and well priced. I would highly recommend to all.

It would be yes and no! The waiter was too loud, kept on checking on us like every 5 mins ( which we didn't need). Food was amazing but I think they have reduced their menu in term of choice...

Very very busy, as expected for Valentines of course. We were tucked away in a small space near the entrance and when there was a queue of people (like there was all evening) it felt cramped and like we were squashed. But as regular customers, the food is outstanding and never fails to impress. I recommend the Zucchini & Gamberi platter as it’s our favourite, also don’t forget to order the original “Amaro Montenegro” digestive shot after dinner (even before) as it is a really good Italian liqueur.
Will see Mascalzone again soon 👍🏽🥂

Lovely restaurant. Food and service very good. The only thing that let it down was the wine list. I just wanted a glass of wine, but all I was offered was the house wine, which I was told was dry. I prefer a medium, so was not able to enjoy a glass of wine with my meal.

It was fairly quiet as it was a Sunday lunch-time. We were able to choose our own table by the window. The food was delicious and the portions were generous.

I'm afraid both myself and my boyfriend were extremely disappointed after eating dinner at Mascalzone.

Although friendly, the waitress did take ages to come over and take drink and food orders. It did not take too long for the food to be served but was very disappointed when it did. My boyfriend basically ordered a chicken escalope and chips, it not only looked as if it had been cooked in the microwave but later that night became sick.

Unfortunately for these reasons I will not be returning and I cannot recommend any family/friends to also visit.
