Booked a table for 1930. I actually selected a table I'd like. Got there to find we were on a different table asked to be moved as I didn't want to be sitting right next to a pillar or in the main walk way. Finally got a slightly better table. Given the menus and ordered drinks. All ok so far. Drinks came and we ordered. Antipasto to share. Very basic ingredients bread was dry Jacobs cream cracker selection a pot of caramelized onions some salad (from a supermarket bag) and some cold meats. Didn't finish as got bored with it. Onto the mains. I had lasagne and chips with salad not too bad. My wife had pork. The pork was over cooked to such an extent it was hard and dry even though it was wrapped in Parma ham. By this time the volume in the place had risen to such an extent that we couldn't even talk to each other. I got the bill leaving half our meals. Nothing was said or asked had we enjoyed it. I think that's speaks volumes for the place. Cheap ingredients and cheap atmosphere. Possibly because it was a busy Friday night but you should still get the basics right.

We visited Dino's the other day based on a glowing recommendation from a family friend. We were not let down. The food was delicious and served promptly by our friendly and attentive waitress Hannah. We will be returning at the next possible opportunity. All in all a great restaurant.

We went here as a celebration for a special occasion and had a lovely time. The service was excellent, the staff were so friendly and very attentive! Great atmosphere in the restaurant on a Friday night, it was lively but not too loud to the extent that you couldn't enjoy conversations on the table. We had a three course meal, all of which was delicious and incredibly flavorous - would definitely recommend the vegetarian fajitas. There was a wonderful selection of deserts as well which were very tasty. We also had the cocktails which were reasonably priced and very nice. The pricing was reasonable and made going out for a very special three course meal possible even for students. We had a very relaxed and enjoyable evening here and will definitely come back and tell others about it!.

We had a lovely cocktail in the bar area before being seated at our table. Shared a starter and each had a main off the specials board. Seafood linguine and pork ragu pasta, both were clearly fresh handmade pasta. Waitresses were lovely and had an overall great night.
