Harden's survey result
The very first outpost of the glam Italian chain (est 1992), with “super stylish décor (albeit quite retro), slick service, an extensive menu and a relaxed atmosphere. The food doesn’t always live up to expectations”, but it can, at times, be “excellent”.
The “busy and atmospheric” outpost of this glam national chain has been one of the city-centre’s better-known destinations since it opened in the 1990s. A typical report: “it felt rather expensive for Birmingham, but the portions were generous and my seabass was very well cooked”.
Launched in the 1990s, the original city-centre outpost of this WAG-happy northern chain is still a “lively authentic Italian”, whose “extensive menu” usually has something to suit.
This city-centre outlet of the glossy Italian chain, which was born in Brum in the 1990s, continues to do a fine trade with its “authentic” cuisine and service but, ironically, this “closely packed” fixture is one of the lowest-rated outposts nationally.
