First class service as always and the food is just authentic Italian, love it ! , always a pleasure to be a guest at La Spaghettata . Ciao
Fabulous food, friendly and efficient staff. Hubby had a steak which he said was perfectly cooked. I am vegetraian and there is lots on the menu to cater for non-carnivores. If we lived in Mebourned we would visit often. The review asks about noise levels - it was noisy but in a fun, Italian, enjoyable way.
THE SERVICE WAS FANTASTIC if i rated it as customer service it would be up in the 500% mark and is just the service the food was coming up to the same % but as you only had a 6 that was that one i had to use but i personally rate it up to 15
Excellent food and service as always. Thought it was going to be difficult to get a seat during the Carlton Italian Festa, but we were seated right on time, served without being rushed and the food did the take long to arrive. Can't wait to go back.
Great service, good old fashioned Italian food. Very popular night on Lygon st and La Spag was one of the busiest. Great for parties and large groups as well, they have entertainment each Saturday and last night it was a couple of attractive Latin Dancers who danced through the restaurant and outside for a short while.
The food is always amazing when we come here. My family has been going to this restaurant for almost 30 years. The staff are always so pleasant and helpful. I couldn't think of a better place for that authentic Italian experience.
