Best for Families - Expert review of La Fattoria

A truly delicious slice of Italian (pizza) pie in Chester.

Though it is by no means the best, this has to be in the running for my favourite Chester restaurant. Don’t be put off by the stained plywood exterior – or the bus stop out front. Do drink in the activity of the place, with staff shouting in Italian, and lap up the rustic, heartiness of the meals. Are you of the ilk that snort at stingy bowls of pasta? La Fattoria is for you.

Food and drink: 

Huge, and I mean huge, portions of traditional Italian cooking. The calzones really are bigger than your head (unless you have a tiny head). There are truly decent house wines for £10.90.

Recommended dishes: 

I love the fusilli with king prawns, courgettes and cream sauce (£8.50), though the pizzas are ideal if you’re craving a carb rush.

Ambience: 

Locals adore this place for its friendliness and honest food. It’ll be a sad night when there isn’t a big group enjoying a celebration of some kind.

Service: 

Cute and cheeky Italian waiters are incredibly helpful.

Location: 

Opposite Oddfellows on Lower Bridge Street. Parking can be found on street. It’s a short detour uphill where the walls meet the river at the Old Dee Bridge.

Price advice: 

Very good value - £7-8 for most pizza and pasta dishes.
