Friendly, lively and good value

First of all, the food. It's very good indeed - simple and tasty. A wide choice, and excellent value for money. Secondly, the welcome. Very friendly and cheerful, as you would hope from a family-run place. Good service. Thirdly, the atmosphere. Lively, with birthday songs for guests, and... read more

Family run and always busy. Great atmosphere, good menu with excellent pizza and pasta. Service is warm and friendly. The walls are adorned with suitably cheesey Italian memorabilia and if you're lucky you'll see the owner sing happy birthday! I often walk past early in the day and see them cleaning the front of the restaurant or working inside. It's... More

The atmosphere is as if you were with your family. Good starters (salami, parma ham, etc etc). Very nice meat with Marsala sauce and also good sardines!!!... More

We have been eating here now for several years. The food is always excellent and full of flavour ( especially the "calves liver veneziana"), and the service and atmosphere wonderful. Nothing seems too much trouble for the owners and we have always left feeling we have had a wonderful evening. A superb local restaurant which I am sure we will... More

It just feels like your going to big family dinner Italian style!!!! The food is fresh and can tell nothing is frozen due to the tastiness. From bruschetta to their meat mains it's full of flavour. Nothing is to far fetched for the owners, they meet all your requests. If you have room for afters then I suggest the homemade... More

A welcoming smile is always at hand and the restaurant seems to always have a festive, upbeat atmosphere! The bonus being that the food itself is some of the best Italian fayre to be found in...

This is my third visit to this fantastic Italian, the food is top notch, I had the Minestrone Soup followed by Rolled Sirloin Steak with a Garlic & Tomato Sauce which was sublime. My partner opted for Bruschetta and Pizza which were equally as good. The menu is varied and reasonably priced, there is also a set midweek menu which... More

Always a great welcome at this restaurant. great for pizza, pasta and good atmosphere. Often busy, so you may need to book - locals like it and keep coming back. Decor is quite chintzy/cheesy - but that adds to the atmosphere.
