Excellent food and service experience, took the chance & ordered the food. Exceeded my expectations, waitress loved what she does and the food/ ambience could not be faulted. Recommend the anti pasta for two, you will not go wrong!

Buongiorno from Preston's Tonda Italian. Inspired by the trattorias of Italy, we cook with authentic flavours made with only the freshest ingredients. We source a lot of our produce from the Preston Market and believe in supporting the local community. Our pasta is made fresh. Our pizza is dusted with rice flour and have gluten free options available. Oh and you won't be disappointed with our specials which have a seafood dish and a meat dish. Last but not least finish with a cafe and a delicious dessert to end the night.Come in and visit us. We recommend making a booking for tables over 4 people. Buon appetite.
