We haven't eaten here for a while but it used to be our favourite restaurant. The food is average, I had the mozzarella and tomato starter, it came straight from the fridge so had no flavour, the tomatoes were basic supermarket ones. The kitchen staff had a blazing row while we were there and this wasn't "part of the act... More

My partner is working in Portsmouth for a few months and this restaurant was recommended to him by a colleague. He eats there at least twice a week and always has good food and a very hospitable welcome. I went down to visit last weekend and met Giuseppe the owner. I had a lovely evening. The food and service was... More

This review is from me a dog called Brian who has a Sunday dinner from this restaurant every week and also his bones. The bones are very succulent the Sunday dinner is wonderful even though making me fat ( to which my Owner is making me walk miles). I would like to thank Giuseppe for allowing me to have these...

On Sunday last, I and my wife went to the restaurant for Sunday lunch as we cannot go back to Italy yet because of my wife's treatment for cancer. We were greeted very warmly by the ITALIAN waitress called Martina, and the owner, Giuseppe (who is Sardinian). Because of my wife's illness, we were shown to a table which had... More

It's easy to see why you would be attracted to come to this restaurant with all the great reviews and celebrity guests they've had come here, but in reality the food is just not very nice at all. I ordered the minestrone soup as a starter which was literally some cheap frozen vegetables boiled in some water and no seasoning.... More

We pre booked a table for a birthday meal, which involved pre booking the meals. Upon arrival we were seated and this is when our problems started! The service was slow and shambollic with only one poor girl trying to get our meals out to us. (Group of 15) Some of the starters were well below par. Some examples: The... More

Parking: Difficult not many places close to resaurunt ended up in side street at some distance - best by taxi. Only a couple of places outside in front. I thought the service was slow for our group of seven people nearly 50 minutes from entering and being seated. The service from the waiter was too overboard and over theatrical for... More

Recently visited for our daughter's 16th Birthday along with 12 of her friends, food and service was excellent. Fantastic atmosphere and do not feel rushed to finish. Have also had a take-away roast which was amazing. Can't wait for our next visit
