Arquati Bistro & Restaurant

We found 'Stranded' by accident after we'd already eaten elsewhere. We liked the look of the menu though, and were impressed with the friendly staff, so we thought we'd try it next time we were in town.

Our next visit was for a pre-theatre meal (Evita is next door). The food was exquisite (we eat out a lot and are not easily impressed) - I had an asparagus risotto to die for & my partner had pasta. Followed up with scrummy tiramisu & washed down with a reasonably priced Pinot Grigio, if memory serves.

So good, we went back a week ago, just to eat. Turnado dolcelatte - mmm - my mouth is watering as I write this & my girlfriend had the asparagus risotto. Soooo good. This time, I had a glass of the Chianti and followed up with cheesecake and a glass of Moscato.

Service was thoughtful (for example we were asked, on both occasions, if we were going on to a show. When we said, "Yes", the food was brought very quickly)and the atmosphere good.

My new favourite place to eat!
