Really great food and exceptional service from the owner. We were looked after very well and offered great options re how our meal was to be prepared. Happy to go back again and again.
Excellent service from very friendly staff who went out of their way to satisfy us with a table in the position we preferred. Definitely recommend to others & as a local will return in the near future.
Lovely food, lovely staff! A unique Italian spot. Take a jacket as it is an open space. The garlic bread is the best I’ve ever had!
Delightful meal that was value for money. The ambience was great and the service was excellent. I definitely would return. The menu selection was excellent.
Pocino has transformed what was a basket place masquerading as a restaurant into a great little establishment with authentic Italian food and friendly staff. You wouldn't really go there for a romantic evening but it is the place to catch up with friends and have a good meal. I go past Pacinos quite often and it is usually quiet full which must say something. Only one minor gripe, the place is too busy on Saturdays to do pizzas so I've yet to try them.
We had higher expectations as had been there prior to the new ownership. Comment on the dinner selection Fettuccine ai Gamberi - whilst the flavour was agreeable some of the prawns were overcooked to the point of being quite soft. The Cotoletta alla bolognese chicken was very dry although the chips were great - dusty crisp on outside and soft inside - with the salad adequate. The service was slow - a good 20 minutes before we were acknowledged with water and wine glasses. Seemed to be sufficient waiting staff but except for the middle aged waiter, were generally operating at an inefficient level eg not sure where to deliver orders. Overall a friendly enough atmosphere and the menu was priced for a family pocket. Would not take much to lift it to a 5 on the scale.
We had an online reservation for 4 persons at 1815. We were promptly seated & offered water immediately. Menus arrived shortly after, with orders taken around 15 minutes later, with daily specials explained. Our orders were all delivered in a timely manner. The food was excellent, flavoursome, & plentiful. Overall, food...excellent, service...very good, prices...reasonable. Thank you Maurizio & “ team”.
Nice food. Really, really slow arrival of food - at least 45 mins after we ordered.... and there were only six other table occupied on a quiet-ish Wed evening. The kids meals came out quickly (thanks!) but everything else was slow and did not arrive at the same time - 15 min lag between first and last main meals arriving. Disappointed after a great first visit about 8 weeks ago.
We enjoyed our dinner very much.Love the grilled squid and the black ink spaghetti. Great atmosphere. Had a great table. We had plenty of room and could chat easily. Waiter was extremely pleasant and remembered what we had eaten from our last visit even though it was a month ago.We will be back.
Food was great, enjoyed everything we had. Waiter was so friendly and welcoming and the service was excellent. Even chef came out to chat. Overall we enjoyed our evening and will be going again soon.
