Italian Restaurants in Devon
1. Woodroast Italian restaurant in Dartmouth 2 Smith Street, - TQ6
2017 Review: “Another fantastic specialist coffee shop from Matteo, the founder of The Curator Café in Totnes, but with fewer crowds” and “really knowledgeable” staff who “know their provenance and grind”; they “always have delicious homemade cakes too”.
2. Hotel Endsleigh British, Modern restaurant in Milton Abbot
Channel 5’s Hotel Inspector, Alex Polizzi, runs this “perfect venue” – a “deliciously cosy” grade I-listed shooting-and-fishing lodge in “beautiful” grounds with views of the Tamar between Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor. “Okay, the food isn’t faultless” (a tad “simple” and “overpriced for what it is”) but for the majority of reporters it’s “still a great find worth revisiting”.
3. Zizzi Italian restaurant in Exeter 21-22 Gandy St - EX4
2015 Review: “Unexceptional” and “unsophisticated” it undoubtedly is, but this “pleasant” kid-friendly pizza-’n’-pasta chain is still generally rated a “useful, if unspectacular, standby”.
4. Polpo Italian restaurant in Exeter 18 Higher Market Guildhall, Queen Street - EX4
“Delicious Venetian-style tapas” is still applauded by the big fanclub of Russell Norman’s “rammed-and-noisy or buzzy (you take your pick)” cicchetti cafés, which can still offer “a fun time” without breaking the bank. However there’s also a significant sceptical minority, who nowadays view their performance as “a bit tired” or even “oh-so-disappointing”.
5. Strada Italian restaurant in Exeter Princesshay Sq, Bedford St - EX1
2015 Review: These “family-friendy” pizza-and-pasta spots have been very “inconsistent” in recent years, and many long term fans can’t help feeling they’ve “gone off”; can Hugh Osmond (who bought the chain in late-2014) sprinkle on them some of the magic he once helped instil at PizzaExpress?
6. Carluccio’s Italian restaurant in Exeter Princesshay - EX1
2015 Review: “Pleasant” enough to look at, this faux-Italian chain also offers a “great range of breakfast items” and “makes a big fuss of kids” too – otherwise, the formula often seems “very stale” nowadays.
