The best night out in a long while

Took a family friend who was visiting for their birthday. Place was not that busy but crazy as usual. Good food, which is a little over priced but very generous portions and a really enjoyable night mainly down to the friendliness of the staff

Visited late last night as we had driven past a few times and thought it looked worth a visit. As critical customers we are not easy to please. Starter of mixed seafood antipasto and we were pleasantly surprised. Fish was fresh and tasty, although I would say slightly expensive for portion size. Mains of risotto and chicken cacciatore .

We live within walking distance but this is the first time we have been to this restaurant but I'm sure it won't be the last. Really enjoyed it, I had the scallops to start and then a delicious pizza which I took half home and had it the next night! Look forward to returning soon :)

I absolutely love this restaurant. It feels like how I would imagine a family run Italian restaurant would be like. The food is great. The service slow. The waiters hilarious and and friendly. Yes you will spend up to 4 hours here as you drink chat and eat whilst waiting for a waiter or your food but it doesn't matter... More

We have been coming here for some time and rated it amongst our favorite restaurants. Unfortunately that has now changed. The welcome and the staff were still as lovely and quirky but the food was not good. We kicked off with garlic prawns which lacked seasoning and were over priced £11.95..They also came on a rather odd mixed salad. Our... More

In the mid 80s this place was an absolute gem. I loved coming here for the fantastic food and screaming nutter of an Italian owner who ensured that no one left the place without being fed and entertained. Fast forward to 2015 and I suggest to my wife that we go there for a birthday meal. Its changed. Twice the... More

Slow service , poor quality wine ,dreadful pizza ! Ok the owner took some money off the bill but that's really not the point . The way The father and son owners talk to the staff is a disgrace , it's a marvel they can get anybody to work for them , for that reason itself I would never return.

Visited with friends to celebrate a birthday. We all choose from the lunch time menu which had a good range of dishes and were not disappointed with the food quality and size of the portions. Staff were friendly and efficient and the owner was the same colourful character as I remember when I last visited the restaurant over 35 years... More

Been coming here for years and always enjoy the atmosphere and the food. Sometimes it can be a bit erratic, like not getting your course you ordered, missing cutlery, whatever but they make up for it in a top notch friendly service and we always enjoy a drink and a chat with Guiseppe. He's a great host. If a dish... More
