Midweek lunch

We called as a family of 6 for lunch on a Tuesday. Service was very good with food ranging from good to very good. The prices were also reasonable for the meals we had but I guess with so much competition in the area no one can be too expensive. Would happily recommend it and would go again... read more

We were there for dinner but never again. 3 waiters in 5 min asking for order. A £6,75 salad composed of one avocado, a sliced tomato and uncut mozarella, without any dressing but one spoon of olive oil. A dry martini that tastes like water and white wine and this 10% charcharge... Seriously ?? NEVER AGAIN

There is a family feel to this restaurant, a relaxed atmosphere, and a genuine interest in the food the staff are serving. A great gluten free range, good vegetarian, and adaptable to a fussy 3 year old. An excelled place to relax with friends of all ages.

I think this was my fourth visit. Previously been before prior to visiting the theatre. Today was with my husband & children. I've always found the staff friendly. I've enjoyed every meal here. Reasonably priced Italian food. The children's portion size of spaghetti bolognaise was just right for my 11 year old and good value at £4.50. Will return again.

I enjoyed my time at this restaurant while sat outside in the sun- the fringe festival was on so we were also entertained by the acts and crowds of people. The staff were friendly and relaxed, even though they were very busy. Ok- it wasn't the best pizza in the world, but at £7:50 it was tasty and good value-... More

The service was good, we were seated immediately and had a drinks order taken promptly. We ordered a two pizzas and they were good. We left full and satisfied. Not too expensive, in fact the pizzas were very good value for money.

Tend to pop in for a quick meal as it is only about a mile from home. Always find the staff helpful and friendly. Just have the basic set two piece pizza or pasta and a desert. Cost is under £10 a head and for this price it is excellent value for city centre.
