If you like variety then you would like it here as you order 3 or 4 smaller dishes like tapas but Italian food is always good and service is very friendly

My friend... More

Visited Pesto today with my husband for our Date Night. Service was attentive and friendly. And the food was lovely- can highly recommend the mushroom bruschetta, stuffed peppers and the chicken wrapped in Parma ham skewers. Delicious food in lovely surroundings with friendly and helpful service.

We telephoned pesto to help us out for my dads birthday tea after we were let down at our original restaurant. They accommodated us at ten minutes notice, there was 12 of us with a toddler and a baby. On arrival they helped with everything, hiding birthday cake, sorting balloons etc. All our dishes were served at the same time,... More
