Visited Here for a family birthday and have got to say we all loved the place, the food and the staff. There is a great traditional it modern Italian buzz to the place and you are made to feel special customers even though we have never been there as a family before.

From the welcome on arrival and the personal attention from the owner Michael to the goodbyes and thank yous from the staff - it couldn't have been better. Lovely food and delicious wine! All in all a special night.

Second visit in a 7 day period and as ever, the food was delicious and well presented. Staff were very friendly too. Plus it was good to see that although Fred “Betfred” Done and Gary Neville were dining at the same time, staff and customers weren’t bothering either.

The chefs even made me something off menu. A chicken risotto with a white wine and cream sauce. Lovely too.

And best of all the otherwise elusive chocolate mousse was also available!

Highly recommended.

Really disappointed to be leaving this review, as we've been to Puccini's several times in the past and always had an excellent time, but it really seems as though something has changed.

It's always been busy and a little chaotic, but in the past that kind of added to the charm. When we went last night, however, it felt completely different - long wait for our table booking, finally ordered, then had to remind the waiting staff three times for the bottle of wine we'd ordered, which eventually turned up once we'd finished our starters. The water we'd ordered as soon as we sat down turned into a bit of a running joke - it took us FIVE attempts at asking (politely) before that turned up, just as we were waiting for our puddings and coffees...one of which also never turned up!

In terms of the food, the starters were fine, the mains less so (I'm not sure who dreamt up my meal of prawns, pineapple and pernot in a custard-yellow creamy sauce...though maybe I just ordered the wrong thing...?).

To be fair, the ambiance is great and maybe we just caught them on a bad night, but overall, what could have been a lovely evening was somewhat ruined as we had to spend quite a lot of time trying to catch the eye of the frantic-looking staff to chase up the forgotten wine/bread/water/coffee etc....If the food had been fantastic, it probably would have made up for it to be honest, but sadly it wasn't :(

Absolutely LOVE this place, fantastic fresh Italian food! Really nice family atmosphere from the service. Penne alla Giggs is phenomenal! The dessert are also to die for :)
