A fixture of dining on the Wirral through four decades – “it’s been there for years” – the Galantini family’s Italian-inspired venue is as reliable as ever and “Enrico’s interesting food is always worth a try”. Long the head chef, he has now taken over management from his parents, Lino & Barbara, but regulars will be pleased to know that “the particularly good specialities such as Avocado Barbara” (avocado peeled, stuffed with prawns, covered with cream cheese and deep-fried in breadcrumbs) are still on the menu.

“Always reliable and enjoyable”, this veteran family-run Italian (est. 1983) has recently passed to the next generation, with Enrico Galantini taking over the reins from his parents, Lino & Barbara. It has always “deserved its mention” but such feedback as we have on the generational shift says the cooking has “improved considerably”.

“An ‘old reliable’, yes, but the food has improved considerably over the past year or so” according to a regular at this Italian-inspired staple (est. 1983), and the “friendly service makes you feel very welcome and special every time”.

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).
