This is what a recent diner had to say on Barolo Grill’s 5pm review section:
‘You MUST try this one. The food was truly superb and a bit different from the norm in an Italian restaurant. Staff were excellent – very friendly, always to hand but never intrusive. Although we had booked for an early evening meal, we never felt we were being rushed – in fact, quite the contrary, which makes a pleasant change!’ Rating 5/5
