I can't even be bothered to waste my time over this place. Food average at best. But it was the service and attitude of the staff and manager which was appalling. Culminating in my requesting the discretionary service charge being removed from the bill. The manager actually refused to remove it. Well, if he wants the £5 that badly I... More

Just popped in for a light lunch. Looks far more welcoming than some similar places nearby. Had a wholesome meal for 2, half a litre of house wine, & dessert for under £22. Very friendly, low key ambience, but just right. Recommended, you won't be disappointed.

Went here for a quick lunch. Found they had a really cheap lunch time menu, where you could choose from a selection of pasta or pizza dishes for £3! My dad had the carbonara from that menu and said it was very tasty. The portion looked big enough to fill a hole. My boyfriend and I went for the express... More

Great position and great atmosphere made all the better when all the staff are fully aware of gluten free items on the good menu. Meal was very good quality as well.

Absolutely the worst steaks we have ever had, anywhere. AND they have the cheek to add a service charge to the bill automatically. Awful food!

Found by chance, just noticed that many Itlians were eating there usually a good sign. Service was quick and the food was well cooked and delicious .

Me and my friend were looking for a nice Italian place to eat, as I fancied a good carbonara! Found this place by chance, stopped to look at the menu outside seeing that the carbonara was only £6.45 which is great, and a lovely little Italian man caught our attention and pulled us in, telling us he would do us...
