Written on: 10/04/2011

If I could score the service lower I would. The service was utterly appalling. The staff seemed upset that you were there when they acknowledged our table. Most of the time they ignored us. The food doesn't mean anything when the service is so bad. Do not waste your hard earned money and do not waste your time. Your money is better spent elsewhere where the staff at least look glad for customers. Awful!… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/02/2011

It was a friend's birthday so we booked a table at La Spaghettata, when we arrived they told us that we had not booked and would have to wait until our whole party arrived, they made us stand in the corridor by the toilets leading into the kitchen for almost an hour despite them knowing how many people were in our party and made us wait even after our party had arrived.

Annoyed and when our friend arrived we complained and were essentially accused of lying about booking our table and shown… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/01/2011

We have been eating here for many years. The food is the best you can get, it's great value for money. The staff are very friendly and the service very quick.
Overall we dont ever take for granted how lucky we are to live so close to a fine italian resaurant like this.

“Visited for the second time in four weeks. ”

Written on: 20/10/2009

Visited for the second time in four weeks.

Very poor service,

Waiters were arrogant and we were left waiting for long periods of time between courses.

Sweet was the worst tiramisu you could ever imagine. Cardboard fudgecake ?… Read Full Review

“I have been to La Spaghettata, Durham twice. The food...”

Written on: 20/09/2009

I have been to La Spaghettata, Durham twice. The food is not the BEST Italian food but if you mix in great pizza with decent pasta and canny Pollo dishes accompanied by fab service and a fun lively atmosphere, then you will see why it is so popular, often with queues at the door.

What I liked.
1. the food, it's pretty good
2. the service, it's very good
3. the atmosphere, it's great too
4. the price, really good

What I didn't like
1. the plastic table cloths, but that said... well who cares… Read Full Review

“Extremely friendly staff and great location....”

Written on: 01/11/2008

Extremely friendly staff and great location. Unbelievably cheap compared to the likes of others, and there is no difference in the quality and taste of food, infact you get much bigger portions at la spaghettata and a free salad bowl.

After my first visit to this restaurant over 4 years ago, I told many friends about the quality and price. Since then I have converted all of them and they regularly visit. Every time I go it is jam packed full, proving that it is very popular… Read Full Review

Excellent service but the food is awful! I had seafood pasta in a tomato and cream sauce. No kid it tasted like alphabet spaghetti out of a tin and there was no seafood in it! The pizza's looked better, would try that if I was to go back… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2008

It is cheap, and if you are not that bothered about the food it would be fine, as the atmosphere was great. I have never had a pizza so bad I haven't eaten it before! My boyfriend had pasta, and the pasta sauce was awful, tasted like it had been made using cream of tomato soup as a base for the sauce! The "free" salad bar was no better, poor quality salad with only the option of thousand island dressing. I certainly would not go back… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/07/2007 by emma80 (1 review written)

The place is filthy, the toilets are disgusting and general hygiene seems poor. Please be careful on the stairs as they are lethal. Wet, greasy and very slippy, watch your feet.
The noise from the bar upstairs can spoil your meal and they are very keen to get you in and out, even rudely… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2006 by erikakaka (1 review written)

Spaghettata is very cheap but also very cheerful. The service is very quick, partly becasue they are so busy they will use your table again and again on a weekend night. As a result if you go at 8pm friday night you are likely to queue, but is worth the wait. Pizza/pasta mainly and are only £4-£5!! free garlic bread with bottle of house wine (£8) - you can't go wrong! students, families, couples, everyone seems to love it for a quick meal!… Read Full Review
