This cinema/jazz bar/restaurant is a “really slick operation”, and has delivered “consistently excellent” Italian vegetarian dishes – mostly pasta and pizza – for more than 40 years. The dining room is also much more stylish than you might expect of a venue attached to a cinema, with first-class service. There is also a twin cinema/restaurant nearby – Fellini’s.

“Get a movie and dinner deal, which is great value for money” at this veteran veggie and pizza-stop attached to a cinema and jazz bar, “in the heart of the town”. “Meat eaters need not worry, you will be charmed and seduced by the interesting menu” – and the ambience, which is “not hippy or with ‘vibes’”, thankfully, but actually rather “sophisticated”.

A “very popular” veggie veteran of nearly four decades’ standing in the same complex as the eponymous cinema and jazz café (cue film and food deals); there’s “plenty of choice for pizza lovers” and “despite being busy”, service remains “efficient”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
