Once again, an excellent evening at a restaurant on the fringe of Merchant City - food good - service good - price is right - well done - we will be back !

What an absolute hidden gem!!! Goats cheese was to die for, as was my partners pate. I went for pizza & Brian got carbonara for his main, as it was our first visit we always like to share. Asked the waitress if she could get the kitchen to give us half the pizza & half the pasta, not a problem. 2 course for £10.95 each, couldn't move after we finished, stuffed. Look forward to working our way through the menu. We will be back ASAP!!!!

Romantically lit by candles at night, the popular Italian offers and intimate dining experience and has an eye-catching interior which reflect the Tuscan influences.

Traditional Italian cuisine

Other options include Esca’s take on stuffed mushrooms with cured ham and mozzarella and served with a garlic and coriander mayonnaise, along with their speciality lasagna dish. Tempted in by the kitchen’s creative take on Italian cuisine, the restaurant remains popular with shoppers looking to lunch, couples having a romantic meal, or friends enjoying a catch up.
