Incredible. My mate and I loved the food and the place. We will be coming back again some time, with a bigger group!

Pasta cooked to perfection, letting the ingredients shine as they should. Very reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

In short, the team, food, atmosphere and value for money is amazing. It's a lovely find and a bustling place; often with queues and people joggling for space. It all adds to the charged and fun atmosphere. The staff work tirelessly to make sure you have a lovely time and have always been friendly. The food is extraordinary with great ideas and presentation. Book now. You won't be disappointed.

We loved it. My wife described her pasta - silk handkerchiefs - as the best pasta she's ever eaten.

I was very impressed with Bancone. Visited with a twelve year old on a special day trip. Service, food and atmosphere were top notch. Many thanks and we will be back.

2nd meal at the place, we let the waiter chose our pasta, starters, wine et al. He asked for any preferences, we said surprise us and food was excellent in flavour and balance. Discovered Private Dining so booking for a team event

We ate at Bancone last Sunday 17th February - unfortunately 4 of our party of 6 have been ill with food poisoning since then. Bancone was the only place we all ate or drank together that day, and we all went back to our respective homes before falling ill overnight. We mentioned to the waitress at the time that our food didn't seem/taste right - we were told quite abruptly that it looked fine and is "hand-made" and so couldn't be wrong... how wrong she was! I've tried ringing to let them know but they don't have a manned phone line, so unfortunately this is the only media by which to report this incident. The more worrying thing is that there are other TripAdvisor reviews saying they had food poisoning after visiting Bancone! Hoping for but not expecting a response if the service on the day was anything to go by. Nice atmosphere, but disappointing food and terrible service (their 12.5% tip is secured already, of course). I won't be returning or recommending.

Really lovely food the only down side was that sitting at the bar was not very relaxing although able to watch the food being prepared it would have been nicer to have been more comfortably seated Lena

The entire experience was wonderful - excellent service, fantastic food, great atmosphere, good value. Just one tiny drawback: from where we were sitting, the music seemed very loud indeed, and sometimes the volume got in the way of our conversations.

This is my third visit to your restaurant in six months. Your fresh pasta is delicious, your staff friendly and helpful. I hope you continue to do well.

Charming staff and you were able to provide my dairy intolerant guest with some pudding which is not always the case. Very noisy!
