    Second time visiting this Restaraunt however this time we took advantage of the early bird offer of three courses for a measly £14.99! Exceptional value for exceptional food & service, too marks!

    A very good place for good food and service.. I only discovered Vercelli's earlier this year and this was the 3rd visit so far and we'll be back again, even though it takes an hours travel to get there. Worth it.

    I have been to Vercelli quite a few times. The atmosphere is really good - a nice buzz without being too noisy. The staff are lovely - very well trained and friendly. The food is delicious and portion sizes just right. And you don't have to break the bank to eat here. Great place, whether it's a big celebration blow-out or a quiet midweek dinner.

    After extensive research for a place for myself and the mrs for a birthday meal I chose Vercelli as the reviews were really good, the menu looked great and the overall appearance seemed good. Nice restaurant when we entered, place was nicely furnished and service was fast and we were looking forward to the evening. Service was prompt, a little too fast but generally ok. Food ordered and the starters were really good but that’s when it went downhill a little. The pizzas looked great but sadly one was absolutely covered in balsamic vinegar and the other was thick with cheese (far too thick and stringy for a pizza), so much so we had to leave half of each of them uneaten. The service we felt was, not pushy, but we felt like we were being watched and as if being hurried to finish our food, which for a birthday meal out was disheartening. Due to this we didn’t bother with having Sweet, paid the bill, tipped and left. Sadly not a good experience of what promised to be a good restaurant.

    Excellent. We haven’t had an Italian meal as good as that for a long time. The steamed mussels in a creamy sauce and the Filetto di Manzo were memorable. If we come back to Hexham, we’ll be returning.

    Lovely meal again, can not fault. Only thing I’d say is, for an Italian restaurant, has a very limited red wine list. The one we had was Romanian!

    Busy but well staffed so service was quick and efficient. Chef prepared to alter dishes to accommodate taste and preferences. Husband had steak but couldn’t have the sauces on offer due to dietary issues. Husband asked if he could have a blue cheese sauce. Waitress said no as it wasn’t on the menu. She came back a couple of minutes later and said the chef could do him a blue cheese sauce. The sauce was absolutely delicious. Should be on the menu. Everyone’s meal was lovely and so were the desserts. Will definitely be going again. Would highly recommend

    We booked on a Saturday night at short notice as a nice meal to break our journey after a very long day of driving and an hour still from our final destination in Alnwick. It was exactly as we had hoped! Delicious, freshly prepared and simple Italian food, friendly, knowledgeable staff and all was served promptly and efficiently. Couldn't have asked for more. We will return to enjoy their food again and spend longer there as we have friends relatives in Northumberland.

    Booked for the first time and not disappointed , service is efficient , helpful and done with a smile which is appreciated , red wine great choice all exceptional The Camembert is to die for , I’d never had the donut style bread .. delicious Deli board of meat was slightly disappointing but maybe I should of ordered 2 considering 4 were tucking in , as we all shared 2 starters. My husbands steak was spot on , as were the risottos Too full for pudding except one of us and he enjoyed his tiramisu , all in all excellent and will definitely be back
