“Team Meal”

We recently took 20 members of our work team to La Scarpetta. The atmosphere was amazing, the service was fantastic and the food was delicious. The restaurant was packed and everyone had an incredible time. La Scarpetta is an asset to the local area and is a firm favourite for us for a work outing or a meal with our family. Thank you so much guys!

“My Favourite Local Italian”

This busy restaurant offers a wide range of freshly cooked authentic Italian food from pizzas to sirloin steak but I love their pasta dishes in particular as the pasta is always cooked to perfection. Exceptional value and always excellent service. Eaten there many times and the food is consistently good. Recommend you book to avoid disappointment.

“Great Local Italian”

Excellent local Italian restaurant with varied menu. Lots of dishes to choose to from, all clearly labelled with dietary information. Very accommodating for coeliacs and altered a dish to make it gluten free – a small detail but sign of a great restaurant. Daily specials as well, sea bass was delicious, as was the steak. Service is friendly, atmosphere is great, a real gem!

“Wonderful Mothers Day Lunch”

Had a delicious meal for Mother’s Day. My spaghetti alle vongole was cooked to perfection. The tiramisu was lovely. Everyone’s food at my table was great. It was a really busy time in the restaurant but the service was friendly and quick. Came with my daughter and there was a high chair waiting for us at the table.

“Just a Wednesday night BUT””

We went to La Scarpetta about 5 years ago and for whatever reason did not enjoy. Other friends raved so we thought it was worth a second visit a month or so back. Since then we are converted and just keep coming back (why did we leave it so long!!) The food is fantastic, the staff are so friendly and the ambience just right. This is now definitely my top place in Coulson! You need to try!!

“Love it!”

This is by far one of my favourite restaurants. The food is always fab. The staff are lovely and very welcoming. We go here a lot and we haven’t had a bad night yet! We’ve joined them for New Year’s Eve last year and had a scream so we are definitely going back there this year! I highly recommend giving them a visit!!

I’ve eaten here consistently since it opened. Delicious authentic Italian food, quality ingredients produce quality food. Excellent, friendly service. Suitable for family meals of any occasion, nothing is ever too much trouble and all dietary needs are catered for. As the title states, excellent.

“Lovely Food, Great Staff”

I took my parents for dinner there last night and we were all really impressed having never been before. The staff were lovely and friendly and very helpful. The menu had loads of choice ( which I don’t always think is a good thing!) however the food was truly delicious. Will definitely be going back. Its a hidden gem!

“Local delight!”

A good local restaurant. Very pleasant surroundings and delicious food. The service was just right….attentive but not overly so. Very buzzy but not so noisy that you couldn’t chat. We will definitely go back.
