Bad experience. PROBABLY a good place if given benefit of the doubt however.

Ok so I'm reviewing this as poor but please read this fully I might be partly in error and in one way certainly am though that's more in etiquette. We'll get to that.

My family have taken to going here for Sunday lunch. The pasta is freshly made, the cooking passionate and truly Italian. Cracking wine list. My children love it too which makes life easier for the adults. Lovely view from the terrace.

Came here on business and was brought here by one of the local team members. This restaurant had amazing seafood and Italian meats, great service and a very authentic Italian feel. Will definitely go back.

We visited this restaurant on Saturday night and it was very busy. This did not stop the service and food and the atmosphere being excellent and despite making plans to go elsewhere we went back the next night! Even though it was quieter the food was first class. We sat overlooking the marina with Italian music playing, eating great Italian... More
