The food is served buffet style and the meats are served by bringing skewers to your table where they slice off a portion. Many of the buffet items were good, particularly the cold dishes such as mozzarella and tomatoes with basil. The pastas on the buffet were awful. The pasta dishes are served from warming dishes and no pasta is... More

Have been before when it was the old style of ordering from the menu and although it was good, this new buffet style is superb, great choice of food and eat as much as you like with extras such as Pizza & chicken bought to the tables until you make it clear you don't want anymore. One of our party... More

This has now changed to a buffet style restaurant and you are brought pizzas and meat on a skewer. The buffet was good and had a fair selection but the meat on the skewers was dried out and hard and they were keen to push the pizzas rather than the meat. The roasted pineapple was only brought round once and... More

We have dined in this restaurant many times as a dinner stop, prior to visiting the theatre. The food has always been excellent and Tony and his staff always served us quickly and efficiently enough to get us to the Theatre in time. What a surprise when we went last evening. The whole ambience had changed. The system had changed... More

I used to love coming to this restaurant, and looked forward to the delicious,authentic Italian food and the excellent service. However, since the revamp, the ambience has dramatically changed. It now feels more like a motorway cafe than a restaurant. Although the food is tasty, some of it is lukewarm. The service is still warm and friendly, but that does... More

We loved the revamped Italian restaurant. The greeting was warm and welcoming and the buffet style dining suited us precisely. We could help ourselves from a great range of starters, just enough for us and as mixed as we liked. The main course was Italian based with a good selection of favourites. The fun started when the charming smiley staff... More

Went here not knowing it had changed to buffet style. Was concerned that food quality would be poor. However, loved the choice of cold/salad and mix it with pasta classics such carbonara. It was great then to be offered food on a scuwer at the table - chicken, sausage, gammon, pizza. Eat as much as you like. I only had... More

My granddaughter and I had tickets for the matinee and evening performances at the Mayflower Theatre, and need to eat between shows, we discovered a distinct lack of eating places in the near vicinity, so opted for this one as being more or less the closest. I have to say we were greeted very cordially, and shown to our table.... More
