Always good food, well cooked at a reasonable price. The menu is quite extensive with added specials. We have had the fillet steaks in various sauces and found them to be excellent quality and cooked perfectly. The pasta dishes are always very tasty and cooked in an authentic Italian way. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. We have been... More

Have eaten here now at least 4 times mid week when staying up for a mid week meeting, always busy and friendly service! Always have the same with Calamari to start and then carbonara to follow. Both always really well cooked full of flavour and very well presented. I always eat alone and the waiters always look after me especially... More

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

We tried this restaurant a few times when it was run by previous owners and found that there was many better Italian restaurants in the area.
