It was a quiet evening during the week, with one large table who were on desserts, but the service was still woefully slow and not very enthusiastic. The pizza (when it eventually came) was lukewarm and not very well cooked...not very authentic either as it had mounds of cheese on the top. The ice cream was frozen solid and seemed... More

Visited this restaurant for lunch on Friday after we saw a guy holding a placard advertising it, we would not have known this place existed despite visiting Lincoln quite regularly. Food was excellent staff very attentive and will be visiting again.Wine is a little on the expensive side but with various deals on food available it still offers excellent value... More

Lunch here yesterday on a day out in Lincoln . The food was much better than we expected , neither of us eat meat so we tend to default to Italian or Indian restaurants and keep our fingers crossed! We need not have worried here , we both had different pasta dishes with Italian bread and a house salad .... More

Nice reception, offered seating, drinks and food order prompt response. Food arrived in good time on warm plates with pleasant service. Good selection of sweets. Disappointed at the non availability of specialty teas. Good experience in nice location with costs at very reasonable prices. Would definitely visit again.

As we couldn't decide what to eat, we ordered a selection of starters. The food was fantastic which considering my husband was trained by an Italian chef is a high accolade. Said our waiter was very attentive and when the restaurant has finished the lunch time rush, he spent a little time having a chat which was lovely and not... More

Well, it definitely was an eventful evening... We went into Lincoln City Centre, had a 15 minute stroll finding ourselves on Guildhall Street. Trying to steer away from the more noisy establishments we entered Pomodoro E Basilico. After ordering food and drinks we got our drinks and waited for the meals in conversation. Waited patiently for over an hour and... More

I am surprised to read some of the comments here about this lovely restaurant. Admittedly, we went on a quiet weekday lunch time but the food and service were superb. The lunch menu is also great value. I paid £11.95 for 3 courses. I liked the décor and atmosphere as soon as we walked in. The service was efficient but... More

I order a starter and it came with a completely different sauce. When I questioned the waiter, the manager of the restaurant is soooooo rude that I got up and cancel my dinner. I tried a second time. The restaurant was empty and I asked to sit in the couch and I was told that the couch was only for... More

I wanted a simple plate of spaghetti and tomato sauce which was not on the menu, so the waitress very promptly accommodated my order. However, the restaurant was very busy, so even our starters (mushrooms and bruschetta) took nearly 30 minutes to arrive; which I thought was a ridiculous amount of time to wait. The food was good, however, the... More
