II Vecchio.. Very nice food that is cooked well. The staff maybe need to work on their service standards however overall it was quite an enjoyable experience. prices remain in the very affordable bracket.

We found the food to be tasty. We both had fillet steaks and you can tell the high quality cut they are,cooked to absolute perfection and very competitively priced.... More

A mixed review for this restaurant. They claim a 3 course deal from 5-7 on a Saturday. We arrived for a booked table at 6:30. We were informed we would have to be earlier to get the deal. Apparently you need to be clear of the table by 7pm. Very unusual and a bit of a bad start. The initial... More

However when the new management took over we thought we would try it again. Not too impressed. I had the mussels in tomato, garlic and wine sauce which tasted tangy as the wine hadnt... More

Italian cuisine has always been known for its garlic, its olive oil, its tomatoes, its weakness for wine, and for that uncanny way it has of defying the rules: the more you eat the healthier you are. Well, the real lesson Italian cuisine taught the world is a simple one: it’s all about what you eat and the quality of... More

Tried this restaurant after not having been for a couple of years and was very impressed. The staff were very friendly, we didn't have to wait long for the food and the food was lovely and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend it.
