Every year we make Sir G's our pre-trip meal. The food has an authentic taste all its own. Any time I eat Italian I compare it to Sir G's and very few make the grade.

Just enjoyed a week in Ely for Blueberry Festival and took the family here for dinner. We polished off both of our pizzas we ordered, they were so good. Even my 2 year old granddaughter loved it, def best pizza in town! 🍕

Unimpressed. Food was bland. I know they make their own pasta but the combination sauce was strange. Red on the bottom and a liquid one on top. Again very bland. Won't go there again. Service was good

The pizza is fantastic! The pasta is pretty good too. We stop there pretty much every time we visit Ely.

We make it a point to stop at Sir G's during our yearly camping trip. The food is some of the best Italian I have ever eaten! The portions are big and the staff super friendly! They also offer beer and wine.
