We had a family lunch out here last week. Nice spot just off market square by the river. Starters are generous (we had bruschetta). They have an open pizza oven which makes huge, delicious pizzas (our little boy loved watching that and the chef even gave him his own mini pizza dough to play with while we waited for food). Lovely Illy coffee and I would definitely recommend the tiramisu dessert.

Il Girasole has changed hands, yet again. (It still has the La Biciclette window.) The menu is truly Italian -- I presume the head chef is Italian. That's where "Italian" finished among the staff. The front of house staff need some training; they are willing but inexperienced. I don't expect to see a waiter wearing baggy shorts and a shirt worn loose in the evening.

The food was fine, but they don't heat the plates and our main course was luke warm.

We eat early, and for some time there were three times as many staff as customers (6 to 2); until a kids' party arrived and the place descended into pandemonium. We made our excuses and left.

£90 for two, three courses, bottle of wine, coffee.

We have been here tones of times, the food is always fresh and can taste none of it is bought in rubbish. Pizza and pasta portion are really big

Friendly staff and nice food. However, I can't help but feel that they are trying to be Italian, but have not quite got it right.

Our visit for a family meal , amazing food but most of all our waitress Sophie greeted us at our table with a lovely smile, was very helpful and ensured our table was kept replenished with drinks and always checking everything was ok,
If only this type of service was met in all restaurants.
Thank You Sophie x
