Loretta is a fabulous host - always smiling. The food is always hot and plenty of it but not fine dining - more casual I would say. The restaurant is dated and needs a refurb - it is a bit dark. However, if you can look past that and want a good,honest meal with friendly staff you won't go wrong

Food superb if not a little expensive. The service is excellent and the surroundings, even though a small venue, are typically Italian. Mid - range price wise but on the expensive side for the area.

In need of a refurbishment. Always cold, however, you can never fault the quality of food or service.

As always, the warmest of welcomes, staff that always make time to make your custom feel appreciated, however busy they are, and food that's better than I've had in a lot of restaurants in Italy. Good, homely Italian food and lots of it! See you again!

My first visit and I was disappointed considering the reviews on here. Unfortunately, they forgot about us and hence, when I asked where our bruschetta was after about 50 mins as we could never catch their eye, the chef must've only started it then. It came out cold with only the top cheese barely melted. It was inedible. As it... More
