Great Find

We went for dinner last night after it was recommended to us. We chose to eat from the specials board and did not regret it. I had asparagus wrapped in smoked salmon with a soft poached egg on top and it was top notch, easily comparable to top restaurants in Manchester. My husband had mixed deep... read more

Went for a meal on Friday evening with 6 friends. The meal was outstanding, something you would expect in the centre of Manchester not Heywood. The service was also impeccable and I will certainly be going back.

We went for dinner tonight and even at full prices rather than early bird it was great value for money. The food was all fresh and cooked to order and the service was great. The Italian man (who's name I should have got) was a pleasure to deal with as were the rest of the staff. We had the mushrooms... More

Have been here twice in the last 2 weeks - one an early bird (excellent value) and one visit on a Friday evening. On both visits we were served beautifully cooked pasta and pizza which we could not fault. Wine of good quality for house wine and becks and Stella on draught. Deserves supporting.

Waiter ( manager ) didn't catch his name was very polite and attentive . I have been numerous Italian around Manchester and as a experienced chef for... More
