Gusto Italian, West Bridgford

Westy-B isn’t a place we venture into very often as we live on the other side of town, but there are a list of gems to find, our favourites being La Storia for authentic, family-run Italian or Escabeche for a tasty take on tapas. We were invited over to see if we can pop Italian… Continue reading Gusto Italian, West Bridgford

Jamie’s Italian, Nottingham City Centre

Despite living in Nottingham for many years, we had never visited Jamie’s Italian until now. We hadn’t heard great things, but Sexy Mamma in Hockley isn’t living up to it’s initial levels of ‘wowzer’ of late, and we had an O2 Priority voucher code for a second main course for a quid. We decided to… Continue reading Jamie’s Italian, Nottingham City Centre

Oscar and Rosie’s, Nottingham city centre

We recently met with a couple of mates for lunch and, with one being vegan, we had to think a little harder about where to eat with a range of options. Although we’re aware of Nottingham’s fairly good reputation for such inclusivity, honestly we’ve never had to consider finding anywhere with a balanced amount of… Continue reading Oscar and Rosie’s, Nottingham city centre

Pizza Storm, Nottingham City Centre

We both love a good pizza but have never visited Inferno before – mainly due to a concern that pizza isn’t a healthy option for Emily and that my being let loose on over 50 ingredients could end in disaster. Like Subway, the premise is that you move down the line adding various sauces and ingredients… Continue reading Pizza Storm, Nottingham City Centre

Sexy Mamma Love Spaghetti, Nottingham City Centre

**UPDATE** we’ve eaten at Sexy mammas probably 3744 times more than we should have in 2017 as it’s become one of our absolute faves. Therefore, we’ve updated this review with pictures of other dishes we’ve enjoyed and some food tips so you can get a better idea of the menu without reading lots of separate… Continue reading Sexy Mamma Love Spaghetti, Nottingham City Centre

Carluccio’s, Nottingham Low Pavement

After a fairly disastrous visit to Carluccio’s last month, we left them a fairly scathing review. We were contacted by the manager to apologise and invite us back and sample their new winter menu, as their guests. However unimpressed we were on our last visit, we felt willing to give them another chance and were… Continue reading Carluccio’s, Nottingham Low Pavement

Piccolino’s, Sheffield

So, you remember when we reviewed Carluccio’s and declared all Italian chain restaurants to be rubbish? Well, on a recent day trip to Sheffield our first choice of eatery wasn’t available (okay, we couldn’t find it) so we decided to wind our necks in and go to Piccolino’s. We have had the Sunday roast platter… Continue reading Piccolino’s, Sheffield
