Visited La Torretta's twice now & would definitely recommend as the coffee served here is great Italian coffee at it's best. Both times had the breakfast which was very tasty & my daughter loved the waffles & bacon & wanted a second helping. Will be going back to try their lunches. Service was good even though they were busy due... More

Such a gorgeous selection of authentic Italian food, drinks and cakes! We go there as often as we can and their themed nights and events are fab!

Came upon this restaurant by chance looking for something to eat on a hectic Saturday lunchtime. Though the restaurant was very busy the staff were attentive and friendly. There is a varied menu and the food we chose was freshly prepared and we all enjoyed our choices. Despite the restaurant being busy we did not feel rushed and enjoyed a... More

A small cafe that had additional seating in next door restaurant. Express and cappuccino tasted good and at a reasonable price too. Wide range of food on their menu too. Friendly service also.

We were very pleased to find this greatest place to eat. We had breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea over a five day stay nearby. The reviews that give other than a good review need to get it right. I suspect they may be by competitors. Who knows. I ŵould go there anytime !

Great place to pop in for a panini and or a light lunch plus tea and brilliant clean bathrooms - not easy to find in England.

Tried to get a table in your cafe this afternoon and were rudely told that a table was not available and that we couldn't even wait for a table, even though there were no other customers waiting and we saw some people getting ready to leave! Maybe us having a push chair / 2 year old was your issue for... More

Had a late brunch here which we booked via a Groupon deal which was not disappointing. A little confused at first as our deal was for The Quills restaurant which unbeknown to us was part of La Torretta. On arrival and throughout our time here the staff we're very attentive. The food was delicious as was the coffee. Will definitely... More
