Decor is very outdated whilst it is clean the toilets and the bar area are difficult to manage on a busy night. The food whilst good in proportion lacked the freshness and presentation.

You can't fault the restaurant for its staff and atmosphere but on the three occasions I've visited I really feel that the food wasn't freshly cooked. This is really disappointing as it's not as you'd expect from an authentic Italian. The tortellini looked and tasted very much like the kind you'd pick up in the local supermarket, with the same...
