Went to this restaurant this evening with my son and his wife and my husband. I had mussels to start they were really dry. Although it said with a pesto crust I was very disappointed it was like chewing on sawdust. My husband has the mushroom with cheese which he said was ok. My daughter in law enjoyed her frog... More

We popped in recently on a busy Saturday evening wanting a simple meal. We had not booked but were fitted in and shown to a nice table. The waitress asked if we wanted to see the wine list, I said yes please! but it never appeared. We shared a starter and had mid range mains with no pudding, all good.... More

Went with friends and were keen to try out this nice little High Street venue. We were seated and then moved, space was quite tight making getting in and out tricky. Staff were welcoming. Menu looked interesting although 3 out of 4 first choices were not available. Starters were good, fresh and light. Mains were ok, although the beef and... More

First visit to Il Camino won't be our last. The menu is not vast but has an excellent choice of dishes and is extremely good value. Staff were welcoming and the service was excellent. The food was all well cooked and delicious and portions were generous, I would certainly recommend a visit to this restaurant but with limited space a... More

We've been to this great restaurant several times and it never fails to impress. The menu and wine choices are excellent. The food is cooked to perfection and the staff are very friendly and attentive. I love the little quirk of having to knock on the front door to come in. It makes you feel like you're a friend coming... More

The food was very average in my opinion. Strange menu choices, and only Peroni as a beer was available. We were also put off by the outside appearance, around the door/windows were cobwebs and dirt and the whole frontage needed a good sweep clean. It looks neglected. Needs to be better cared for to give it kerb appeal.

We had been meaning to visit this place and then got invited to a friends birthday! What a treat absolutely lovely! I don't normally eat all 3 courses but I could not resist the food not the menu! So many flavours the taste was fantastic. Best tiramisu I've had in this country. Can't wait to go back. Well done to... More

Whilst looking for a romantic restaurant to celebrate our anniversary my Husband was told to visit Il Camino by an acquaintance who assured him we wouldn't be disappointed... He was right, the service was attentive and friendly and the food was excellent. We had a brilliant evening. Grazie Maurizio and staff, we look forward to our next visit

We always enjoy coming here as we always know the food will be good. I know I should have a change but I always love their sardine starter. Good selection of main courses and love the fish selection and duck. And love the desserts if I have the space. Good service just at the right level.
