The food was delicious and service fantastic. The staff were knowledgeable about the menu and wines. The Marconato has a very relaxed and cosy atmosphere. Highly recommended and will certainly be visiting again. The Marconato was the perfect setting for our family party and made our evening special.

This was a one off visit to the area and we wandered up and down before choosing this as it looked like fun. We weren't disappointed. The head waiter was professional and quite fun. The varied and interesting range of meats are a surprise: but we opted for the classics. Tasty and Anglicised, the pasta was pretty good, as were... More

I have been to this restaurant many times over the years and have always enjoyed their food and service. It was the perfect place to hold a Wedding Reception as Adam the proprietor, made it very special from the table decorations, drinks on arrival, a good menu, which meant everyone was catered for adults and children. We could not fault... More

Food was over priced, poor, tasteless , meat was tough, staff were forceful with alcoholic drinks and making you order more as you were watching the entertainment The Adele tribute was not amazing-more of a sing along- wouldn't go back!

Donnabrox, Manager at Marconato, responded to this review

We have a policy of changing customers dishes if anything is not to their liking and we made sure we did this for you. Unfortunately from the outset your attitude and behaviour towards our staff left a lot to be desired and we did not feel it was necessary for you to be as rude as you were toward them,... More

My partner and I went here for valentines night. We have never been before so really did not know what to expect. WE arrived at 730 and was seated up stairs in the entertainment room.
