‘We booked very last minute and we are so glad we tried this place. It is a very cosy restaurant and loved the candles in wine bottles on the table. The staff were very helpful and not in your face all time. The food was outstanding, we had antipasti to start followed by risotto with goats cheese and it was the best risotto I have had. We will defo be returning here – wonderful place..’ Rating 5/5
‘Excellent as always. Been to Esca a number of times now and have never been disappointed. We were greeted by a young friendly waitress and shown to our table. The food was excellent… All the staff were really nice and good chefs too. Will be back again soon.’ Rating 4.75/5
