Went in on a spur of the moment decision. The food was its usual high quality and fantastic. The staff were wonderful. They are always cheerful and helpful. The atmosphere was great. Not to noisy from other people eating and the background music was just right. This is by far the best restaurant in Northampton and we'll worth visiting. But... More

We went there to celebrate my birthday on Saturday night. We had a large booking of 24. Unfortunately a few people dropped out so only 18 made it to the restaurant. The staff were really helpful and friendly, they couldn't do enough for us. The food was fantastic. We went for the sharer menu which is described in full on... More

We went to Papa Cinos last night for a meal. The waitress was fantastic, she was warm honest and could have a joke - everything you'd want in a waitress. The food was very good. We had one small issue but the staff were keep to take it on board to try and improve it so I'd gladly go back.... More

The menu is not that varied and the dishes are a bit less than ok. We went there on a Thursday night and there was only one waiter for the entire restaurant, with only one bottle of olive oil and one little bowl of Parmesan cheese that we had to rotate with every table. The food is over priced. The... More

We'd booked to see a gig at the Derngate, so decided to make an evening of it with a meal at Papa Cinos. We'd been before, (on the recommendation of someone else) so decided to head back. We booked ahead (which is recommended), even though it's a Wednesday, people were being turned away as it was fully booked. This says... More

Having never been to Northampton before, I had no idea where to book an evening meal. I found this on trip advisor and was lucky enough to get a table. The restaurant itself was beautifully atmospheric and the menu offered a wide range of of foods. I won't list everything we all ate but I have to mention my main!... More

Booked on the day as we were off to see a show at the Derngate afterwards. We were welcomed straight away and shown to our seats. The waiters/waitresses were all attentive and very friendly. We had olives and a bread basket to start. The olives were delicious but we could have dine with some balsamic for the bread. We both... More

Booked a table for early evening and parked in the town not knowing there are a few spaces right outside - it was a nice evening and I wasn't to know I'd need to burn a few calories off later. The waiter greeted us and showed us to our table and promptly took the drinks order. The decor is an... More
