We were deloghted with this place. The service, atmosphere and food were brilliant as was the price. We were so impressed we went back the following night. Somewhat boringly I opted for the calzone, which I had thoroughly enjoyed the previous evening. The dish arrived shaped as a dolphin!! Brilliant humour! I've uploaded a photo but sadly my wife pinched... More

We ate here on Saturday 3rd January 2015. I should point out that I am fussy, and like my late father, am quick to criticise even the slightest negative, especially when I am paying for my food. We had three courses, choosing the mozzarella pizza bread as a starter alongside bresaola. Both were large - we could have done with... More

Excellent food, good service and friendly staff. Good location. A little bit cramped with tables a bit close together.

Absolutely lovely authentic Italian restaurant. We're shown down by very friendly waiters to a beautiful downstairs seating area. Food was delicious and two of us had three courses, sides and drinks for under £60! Definitely recommend the baby squid starter it is delicious. Can not wait to go back! Yum!

The food here is always bliss and the service is attentive and friendly. Their pasta is delicious and their portions are very generous. We've sat both upstairs and downstairs and both areas of the restaurant are warm and welcoming. The decor is a little old fashioned but in a sense that adds to the visit.

We visited this restaurant last night, the food is very tasty, decent sized portions and served up beautifully. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Food quality is 'top notch' in my opinion.
