We have visited Nardini's many times and the fish and chips are always lovely, although the chips cool down very quickly as food is served on cold plates (why?). On this occasion we ordered wine with our meal. This was a big mistake. The rose' looked white and I almost said to the waiter that he had brought the wrong... More

Took a trip out during the Christmas break and ended up in Largs! We went to Nardinis just before noon and were seated right away in a beautiful Art Deco style dining room! A lovely nod to the roaring 20's. We just ordered sandwiches and they were lovely! Fresh and served with Salad! Looked more than we had expected! Tempted... More

After a walk along the front Nardini's supplied us with a good plate of soup and a roll; just the ticket! Service was fast and friendly.

So went here today with my mum and two year old grandson, waited in a queue as it was mobbed, after having dinner I have no idea why there was a queue! Not a great choice of food and the fish and chips were horrid, tasteless and my mums was full of bones. My grandson is usually a great wee... More

Visit this establishment from time to over the past 25 years, mainly for a snack or beverage. Excellent selection of Italian type icecreams. Not the cheapest, but always found the quality good

A lovely traditional style Italian / Scottish cafe. We sheltered here in the middle of a heavy Scottish storm and thoroughly enjoyed some ice cream. The whole party was particularly pleased with their choices. I would highly recommend the Scottish Tablet flavour ice cream. Definitely worth a visit!

Overpriced and poor food. White chips which were lukewarm. Fish which had obviously been prepared hours ago and to cap it all, surly service from a couldn't care less waitress. The only redeeming aspect was I was not paying. Report card, "Must Try Harder" and don't just rely on your name.

We came in here on Sunday afternoon looking to get a tasty meal. Meal we got none. There were two waiters running around gleefully ignoring us and sitting new tables while we waited. It has now been 25 minutes and they still have not taken our drinks order!
