Set back beside the cultural Chester Cathedral, hidden from the busy main strip, sits this beautiful, true Italian experience.
Sergio’s has been showing Chester a fantastic eating experience for over thirty years, and it is clear to see why they have been here so long.
The waiting staff serve you as though you are their family, with care and integrity at their heart.
An extensive menu from classic pizzas and pastas, to traditional fish and authentic meat dishes is served with healthy portions and tasty treats for desserts.
Myself and my family opted to share a garlic pizza bread and olives to start. This was definitely a good decision, a crisp garlicky pizza base, no oily residue you get with poor garlic bread, and possibly the best Italian olives I’ve tried. I did also get some food envy when I saw some bruschetta go to a table nearby…
For our main courses we all opted for pasta. Fusilli Milanese, Fettucini alla Renata and Fettucini del Pastore were the picks. I had the Fusilli Milanese and added some spinach because I love it so much. The pasta was all beautifully al dente, packed with flavour and we were even able to watch it be cooked as we were so close to the kitchen.
After a filling meal we were all ready for a good nap… but how could we refuse a homemade Tiramisu? I often find restaurants make them too creamy or rich but this was a light, delicate and featured a perfectly coffee infused sponge. We shared one between three of us because we were so full, but thinking of it, I could definitely eat one right now.
Sergio has a lot to be proud of with his Chester-based restaurant. It’s only fault was that we weren’t in our home city of Leeds, and we can’t come around every week.
5 stars. Bellissimo!
