Waitstaff were very friendly and helpful. Food was great, a little on the expensive side though. Nice for special occasions.

Very good Italian food. Book ahead and expect an inconveniently crowded outside space.

Pizza was OK a bit sloppy as some of the toppings fell everywhere, my wife had potato gnocchi which for a main dish is a very small portion.

Overall it wasn’t too bad, however, we just felt rushed and our food came out really quickly and we just didn’t feel like we were able to enjoy our dinner. When we were ready to go, it took forever for someone to bring us the bill and then when we wanted to pay it took another good 7 minutes for us to get someone’s attention, only for them to tell us we had to pay at the bar!

We had a lovely time in the gorgeous outdoor area and the service was outstanding. Staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. However, the food was nothing to rave about. Everything was nice but not delicious - my hubby was still hungry after his main (pasta) and the selection of pasta dishes seemed to be all tomato based .... it would be nice to see some old classics. My dessert was insanely sweet although looked very pretty. After all that though, we would probably go back mainly because of the atmosphere, friendly staff and location.

Very disappointed, with food service everything. Been here before don’t remember it being this bad.
Entertaining friends what a let down. Need to improve a great deal before I can recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We really enjoyed the restaurant, the staff were lovely and accommodating, my 4yr old had a blast kneading dough whilst waiting for his main meal it kept him very occupied.
The staff were helpful and polite, the food was delicious, generous and fast we will definitely be back :)

We went for dinner out with friends, and when we were told we had to leave by a certain time, it put a damper on our experience. The place was so loud that we couldn’t talk to each other. The food wasn’t that good.

Great venue to dine at. Food was exceptional. Only downer was we were moved outside instead of having an indoor table as requested from booking.

Everything was excellent other than the fact that I wanted a very spicy pizza and it was a bit mild for my taste

I visited The Italian Food Project with some friends on the weekend and we had a fabulous time. The service was excellent as was the food. The staff were helpful with every aspect of the meal! We could not believe the value! I highly recommend this restaurant and I will definitely be going back with my family!

This restaurant provides a truly authentic experience. On this occasion they provided complimentary Lemoncello drinks at the end of our meal. Just as we experienced a week earlier in Milan, Italy.

Ingredients used are of good quality and the preparation and presentation I would rate as very good. Nice flavours and generous portions. Quality has been consistent since it opened. Only criticisms would be the difficulty in getting a table on weekends due to private functions and some items on the menu need to be rotated to reflect the seasons. Otherwise a very good restaurant.

Not much variety, no air con meant it was freezing. The stuffed pumpkin penne was like puréed baby food. Very over rated

The arancini, calamari and gnocchi was delicious but the Spaghetti Vongole had too much chili and the pizza was a bit burnt.
