Went here with another couple. One of the couple said he wasn't a huge fan of Italian. He changed his mind throughout the evening. The food is brilliant. The service first class, in fact I can't find anything to fault the restaurant on...

We (4p) had a relatively quick dinner with well cooked, good amount of tasty Italian food. For this price category it was very good. Also service was attentative. despite the busy seating and a big group we managed 2 courses within 1.5 hours. Especially if you are looking for a change from the omnipresent pub food in the center of... More

Gave this place another chance. Wish I hadn't. The service was appalling apart from the fantastic front of house.he is the only thing going for this place.it took 30 mins to get a menu and drink and it wasn't even busy. Massively overly rated food. Won't be going again which is a shame.

I'm sorry that you had a negative experience with us! We hold up our hands and except that last night we got caught out with a full restaurant and not enough staff to cope with the demand. As you can see from most of the review on us, this was a rare occurrence as we do try to predict when... More

We had a very nice meal here. I had the linguini ai frutte di mare, which was very tasty and rich with seafood, and Barb had a risotto that she quite enjoyed. The service was quite good -- but it was a Sunday and they weren't particularly busy. The issues all had to do with the little things. We ordered... More

Reservations made a little over two weeks out and as parinoid as I was to make sure thins went well, I was thoroughly impressed. My wife and I walk in on time to see an earlier delivery of roses (surprised the wife) and a staff ready seat us. We had a reservation for a table in the back of the... More

Feeling slightly like the odd one out here but our meal tonight was distinctly average. Nothing particularly terrible but nothing that would warrant a second visit either. The garlic balls were very doughy and lacked garlic flavour, the arancini large and pretty tasteless. The squid was ok. The futti di mare linguine was very thin, flavourless and lacked any punch....

Really enjoyed the food and waiters made us all feel at home from the get-go. Take a table on the rooftop terrace and enjoy the views :-)

Lovely family run restaurant with fresh, fantastic food. Pre starter on the house was a tiny skewer of basil mozzarella and baby plum tomatoes full and flavoursome. Mains were yummy and I have no idea how but my salad was infused with the freshest sweet basil flavour ever. The only tiny thing not to my liking was the lemon cheesecake,... More
