Had a great lunch here. Bruschetta, spaghetti bolognese and ice cream all for £10.95. Food was delicious in this family run restaurant and staff were lovely. Will certainly be back for more of this wonderfully authentic Italian food. Well done to the owners of this delightful Italian restaurant you're on a winner here

We had an wonderful meal. The food was so yummy. The house wine was the best we have ever had. Everyone was very friendly. We would recommend anyone visiting Stirling to go there.

This was a return visit to this popular restaurant, and once again the food was good quality, service was excellent , wine at the right temperature , all good things. £35 for two people including drinks , that's not too bad.

I am always comparing and nothing comes close to La Ciociara. I had the Margherita and my sister ordered the Quattro Formaggi (four cheeses with no tomatoes). I love the Margherita... More

Food is delicious although to be fair we usually have pizza, salad and wine but ALL the food that comes over the servery looks delicious and is always piping... More

We were greeted by a charming Italian waitress who was exceptionally helpful. She organised a variation on the menu for my husband and asked the chef about the provenance of the pasta for me. The menu had choices I was unfamiliar with which is always nice. It was fun to watch the pizza dough being tossed in the kitchen. We... More

Popped in for lunch. 3 course for £10.95. 2 starters were stuffed mushrooms and crostini with tomato and mozzarella and both were very good. Mains were an American baguette and penne arribiata, the baguette was nice and the penne was excellent. Had ice cream and caramel shortcake to finish. Overall a great lunch and very reasonable, will be back as... More
