This place has been around for donkeys years and run by the same people. The food is really nice and it's not hugely expensive for what you get. Good honest cooking. Great steaks with plenty of sauce and veg. Book as it gets full quickly.

What can I say? This restaurant is and stays a excellent Italian! We tried the set menu this time, and is very good for value, there was a lot of food, and cooked perfectly. The atmosphere is still the same, nice and quirky, and the same staff, which I find very important in a restaurant. Thanks for the lovely evening,... More

Best chicken with balsamic sauce I have ever tried. The staff are warm and friendly and the atmosphere is lovely. We all had a great evening which was topped off surprising hubby with a slice of chocolate cake for his birthday which the staff added a candle and turned all the lights off. Will definitely go again on our annual... More

Good hearty Italian food. Perhaps a little overpriced for what it was, but still very tasty and excellent service even though there were a lot of us.

This little restaurant is a hidden gem. The food is almost always excellent and the staff are very good. Prices are well pitched, not over expensive but you know you've had a good meal!

Came here for dinner tonight with some new work colleagues and it was everything we hoped from our brief glance in from the street - an old-fashioned, atmospheric and tastefully decorated Italian. Great service, wide variety of choice on the menu and delicious food - we had a mixture of pasta and pizza between us, all really good and reasonably... More
