I felt rushed since the time we arrived. We were 15 minutes late due to waiting for a taxi however we did call to let the restaurant know , this seemed to be fine.
The guy who greeted us was very abrupt, quickly sat us down , it seemed he was rushed of his feet even though the resteraunt was half empty, not a very warm welcome at all.
When we were seated a lady came straight over and asked us were we ready to order as she needed the table back by 8pm it was only 6.15pm and we had not even lifted the menu up, she said there was not enough time to have dessert ! We had not even ordered our first drink at this point , we kindly asked her to give us five minutes.
The food came, it was pretty average , we expected better , the pasta was really undercooked , nice wine though.
After we finished the lady informed us we do now have time for dessert if we wished as the following party of people had cancelled , but we didn't want to stay. I won't be going back in a rush , nor would I recommend. Lacks atmosphere and a smile from the staff would be nice.

Visited Liverpool between 25 and 27.06.21.
Dined here on Saturday 26.06.21. We had book a table for 7.30pm. We arrived a few mins late. So far no problems.
Firstly, a very nice restaurant and tables well spaced out, which is good. Apart from being right next to the bar area, I can't really complain.
I had a starter of Bruschetta Salmone. Decent portion, but the Bruschetta was tough as old boot leather. The Salmon was fine, but thats about it.
My partner had the Calamari Fritti, which was very nice. £8
Mains - I was going for the Sea Bass, but decided on the house special for the night, good old Lasagne instead. I ordered a side of Fries and a side of salad.
Possibly, in fact, probably the worst, driest Lasagne I have ever had. It arrived sitting in a sauce which I am sure was tin of tomato soup. The meat content was sadly lacking and the pasta was tough and very dry at best. The edges were burnt, which wouldn't be a problem normally, as I like a crispy top, but the dryness extended through the dish.
I am a shift worker and the microwave versions from a supermarket are easily better than this. Fries were average and the salad, well you cant really go wrong with a salad. More tomatoes would have been good mind you. All in all, a very dry disappointing course.
Partners main was the Tagliata (Rump Steak). Again, much better. Cooked as requested.
Drinks. My partner had a couple of cocktails which she was happy with.
I had 1 bottle of Peroni 0%, as I don't drink. Chilled nicely, but £6.!!!!!!! The alcohol free option is more than the normal bottle. The online menu doesn't match the in house one we were given, as regards prices.
A very nice place but the standard of food was very average.
We eat out a lot, or did pre-covid, so we know what we like and "La Famiglia", wont be on our "must do list" ever.
Poor quality dishes and overpriced for what you get.
We wont be going back.

Oustanding meal and service for our first visit yesterday evening. We arrived and hour before booked time but were helpfully accomodated. Comfortable quiet ambience. Our first visit to Liverpool since Covid. Will definitely return here when we're able to visit more freely.

There was a group of 6 of us out for drinks and food. 5 of us ordered cocktails, starters and mains and 1 ordered a kids meal as she didn’t want anything too big to eat. The ‘owner’ made a comment and said ‘This is fine dining, if you wanted a kids meal, McDonald’s is over the road’. I approached the bar and requested to make a complaint, I said you may want to consider what you say to people in the future as you never know what someone is going through, she may have been really unwell and recovering or had an eating disorder and wanted to join her friends. He then proceeded to write his name down on a card and shove the business card in my face and said ‘I’m the owner, make a complaint about me’. He came over to the table shortly after and said, ‘This is my home, you are the guests’. We have never felt so uncomfortable out for dinner so we left the restaurant. After being in lockdown and everyone suffering in different ways you would think any place would be grateful for the custom, not judging what one person in the group wanted to order. Would never recommend, by far the worse experience we have ever had.
