My wife had lasagne. Delicious - homemade, and all washed down with a fine bottle of Chianti. Great night, great... read more

Took my family for a meal recently and it was as good as we remembered it from our previous visit. My steak was simply superb ... perfectly cooked medium rare and melted in the mouth. My wife had lasagne. Delicious - homemade, and all washed down with a fine bottle of Chianti. Great night, great place.

Really nice food, had the scallop to start and cooked to perfection! Nicer than no 7 fish Resturant where we normally dine! Put this Italian Resturant on the good food list and worth another visit. Lovely place, good food and very pleasant people. Very filling food but defiantly not for the small appetite .

Having visited this restaurant on two previous occasions, we were anticipating more of the same excellent food. My bruschetta starter was ok but buried in an ocean of rocket. My sister ordered the scallops which seemed to be just about cooked, and had some sort of sauce that tasted of mussels. While one appreciates that scallops are perfectly safe even... More

Lovely friendly family restaurant for a relaxed meal. The food was delicious and well presented. Perfect for a evening when you want to eat in a relaxed manner, with plenty of time to enjoy your chosen company. We will definitely go again and will recommend. 4 persons, complimentary nibbles, starters and mains, 2 bottles of wine, £110. Well worth it!
