We enjoyed a rainy afternoon watching at movie at this gorgeous old cinema in Ambleside. It was so comfortable, full of character and with the added charm of a proper drink available at a old fashioned bar located inside, which you were allowed to take with you into the auditorium to relax with whilst you watched the film. Cineworld/Odeon/Vue take... More

We visited for the cinema and restaurant deal. Good value for money, cost £80 for 4 of us to watch the film and have a 2 course meal each (two adults and two children). We had to wait outside in the pouring rain when we arrived and then there seemed to be some disorganisation about getting everyone inside and into... More

After Fellinis this place was massive, much noisier, still good service but although a little cheaper, the food was worth much less. Good ingredients but lacking flavour in pizzas.

Amazing tasting food, lovely attentive service. Dining area is gorgeous and a positive vibe in the room. Meal deal is a brilliant choice but treat yourself to three courses or you could miss out!

It doesn't shout it, but this is a veggie restaurant and its really tasty. I love how they've done the place, the service is friendly and the decor stylish. Will be back there!

I do think people rate this place more on the fact you can get a 'combo' of a film or jazz with food which probably is a good deal when combined, but we went for food only and it was overpriced and not authentic italian at all. My aubergine parmagiana had (vom) mushrooms and peppers in it which it shouldnt,... More

Hi, thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you were not happy with your food but thank you about your comments about the restaurant and service. The parmigiana is one of our most popular dishes so i am surprised you did not enjoy it. The dish is described as having a roasted mediterranean vegetable sauce and hence why it... More

Tomato sauce on pizzas not that tasty and the salad dressing wasn't that good either. Bit on the pricey side too.
