Really enjoyed everything about our dinner here. The waitress was brilliant and very accommodating with our order and bringing our dog water. We sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was delicious and very reasonable. Would definitely recommend

Second visit In two years. Just as good as first visit. Here’s my original review…. This can be a bustlingly busy restaurant. It has a lovely atmosphere. Service was excellent. I had the Gamberessa pizza. It was one of the best pizzas I’ve had in...a long time. I can’t wait to visit again on my next visit to Ambleside.More

A great meal. Lots of choice and all really well done. They do not take bookings but everyone we saw was able to get a table within 5 mins.

We came here as a last resort due to other places being booked. We were so pleased we did! The service was amazing, the lady we had was so friendly and had excellent customer service skills which is getting rarer these days! She was so...lovely with my children too. The food however, was even better. I had the tastiest lasagne I’ve ever had in my life. It was just delicious, so much so that you’ve ruined lasagnes for me as others don’t stand up 😂 The other adults felt the same about their meals, the gnocchi and a seafood pasta dish. We were coming back on our last night of the holiday, but friends visited so we couldn’t get there. Gutted. We will return!More

We dined here and enjoyed an excellent meal starting with a shared antipasto and then we both had lasagne. All served in pleasant surroundings by friendly staff. Would highly recommend.

Coming from New York City, amazing Italian food has always been hard to find. Also, as a celiac - gluten free pasta has been an additional hardship but I genuinely HIGHLY recommend Misto. Not only was the service incredible but the food from beginning to...end was amazing. For starters, we got the king prawns and the Camembert. Both items were great and mixing the two together was game changer. They even have gluten - free bread to pair with on the side. For mains, I got the king prawn linguine (as the gluten free option, they only have penne which is still great) and we got the Pollo Milanese with linguine (not gluten free but still 10/10). As a bonus even though we were way too full, we got the Vesuvio gluten free pizza and took it to go. Highly recommend and service/vibe/wine/music was to die for!More

Great restaurant, walk ups no booking so great if you've left it to last minute. I had the lasagne my husband had the chicken Saltimbocca. Both were delicious. I love lasagne and this was the beat lasagne I have had anywhere, including Italy! Tried Aperol...Spritz and this was great too!More

The food I ordered, both starter and main were appallingly bad. The Caprese (which is a simple mozzarella and tomato salad was inedible, the mozzarella was not unlike porridge, it was thrown on a “mound” of rocket that was sat in cooking olive oil, and...to add insult to injury, 3 cherry tomatoes had been thrown at it, completing what could only be a described as an abortion. This was swiftly returned to the kitchen. Main course arrived, to equal, if not succeed the starter as a complete horror show. The chicken Caesar salad should be again, a simple dish to produce. The chicken thrown on top was not sliced, it was like a piece of roadkill, tough and nigh on impossible to cut. Beneath the so called chicken, lay a mattress of lettuce and god knows what else that lurked within it. Nothing like a Caesar salad whatsoever. To this end it was rejected too. The waiting staff appeared incapable of any empathy and professionalism too. I am an easy going person, but this was utterly unacceptable. How the chef could send this total rubbish out and think it acceptable is staggering. Needless to say I will not be setting foot in the place again. On a lighter note, go to Matthew’s Bistro opposite, literally chalk and cheese, the whole experience was fantastic.More

What can I say about this place other than WOW! Me and my boyfriend ventured into Ambleside to try this place having seen it online. It was beautifully decorated, the smells from the kitchen were to die for and we were seated instantly. We were...offered water for the table and had our drink orders taken. We had to move tables to suit a larger group but this suited us as we had a better table! We both ordered a main and a side to share and the food was incredible! So fresh, full of flavour and my partner and I were both wowed. We could not speak highly enough of the staff we engaged with- so polite and created such a calm and relaxed atmosphere.More

Was surprised by this last min choice. Ambleside has so many quality restaurants in such a short distance, but was happy with this one as it seemed so family friendly with a nice atmosphere just looking in. Inside the welcome and service where exactly as...anticipated. The menu the usual Italian fare all tasty and the Pizzas seem to be very popular. My 5 yr old was happy as they adapted to specific requests off menu, where many fail to do these days. Goes a long way with fussy eaters. Happy child = happy parents. Very good.More

Dropped in for dinner. My other half opted for three courses with a garlic mushroom starter. We had a change from our favourite smoked salmon linguine and carbonara and both opted for pesto pasta which was delicious. For desserts we had panacotta and sticky toffee...pud. Again all was delicious. The service was extremely good. We call here every time we have a break in The Lakes and it never disappoints.More

They are not taking bookings at the moment so just need to turn up, if you go for them opening you have a better chance of getting straight in, if you go later be prepared to wait.
