My fiancé and I had tickets booked for Cineworld and needed somewhere good to chow down before catching Matt Damon's latest thriller Greenzone.
We dropped into the Di Maggio's just round the corner and even though it was a busy Saturday night, we were still able to get a table by the large, bay windows.
We ordered a couple of pints of Diet Coke (cheap at £2.15) as we checked out the menu. For starters, I ordered the loaded potato skins topped with red cheddar, smokey bacon and chopped onion served with a sour cream dip (£4.95).
The good lady ordered deep-fried stuffed mushrooms packed with pate and served with salad and a garlic mayonnaise dip (£4.95). For the main course I ordered my favourite, Penne Positano (£8.45). My companion decided to choose the chicken stroganoff (£9.75).
We shared a side portion of Di Maggio's yummy garlic bread (£2.95). My starter consisted of three large potato halves smothered in strong cheddar. It was delicious and the crunchy bits of bacon added to the flavour but the cream dip didn't add anything to the taste. Instead, I shared my partner's garlic mayo dip.
