We visited for lunch on Sunday. Great deals and choice. The staff were very attentive and the service was efficient. The food was served quickly and was hot and well presented. We hadn't booked but there were tables available. Great value for money. If I'm in the area again I would definitely visit again.

Ate here yesterday with a friend and received a warm welcome. Ordered a starter of calamari and a main fillet of pork. The calamari was nice but not amazing defiantly not worth the £9.95 the main tasted very nice but was just slightly over cooked the pork was a little tough and the hand cut chips where soggy. Overall the... More

Went for a meal with friends. Service is excellent, family run and friendly. All staff attentive, nothing too much trouble. For the birthday girl all staff celebrate at the table and we wear fancy hats. Lots of fun. Food, plenty of choice for everyone and exceptional quality. I go regularly with family and my friends who hadn't been for several... More

Lovely food and lovely staff, always a pleasure to eat here. Would recommend booking though I've never seen it empty! The early bird deal from 5-6pm is brilliant.

Living in Formby its great to have high quality restaurants on our doorstep. I enjoyed everything about my experience here. The food was delicious. I had a carbonara which was tasty with a good portion size. The creme brulee I had for dessert was incredible! They set it on fire at the table and the consistency is spot on. Service... More

Overrated and over priced. The service was very attentive but the quality of food was low and very expensive for what arrived. Probably be ok after 2 bottles of the overpriced wine.

We eat here regularly as a family and with friends. Staff are welcoming, friendly and attentive. The restaurant gets very busy between 5-6 Tues-Sat during pizza/pasta happy hour!! There is a great selection on the menu and I can recommend the Tagliatelle alla Marinara and Linguine Don Luigi.

This place has a great atmosphere and is a big draw for families, especially between 5pm and 6pm, when food is cheaper (if you're looking for a quiet romantic meal it may be best to wait until later - it can be heaving at 5.30 and almost empty come 6.30). The staff are friendly and it is easy to see... More
