We went for a meal here on a relatively busy night. We waited a while for a table which was to be expected. Once at the table however the service was very slow. We waited a long time for anyone to take our order and we watched a few tables who came in after us get their orders taken first.... More

We came across this restaurant about 6pm on a Saturday evening. After drinks and a short wait, we got a table. This is an extremely busy restaurant though and it would be best to book. The food was very tasty, the service was very good and the atmosphere was brilliant. In fact we enjoyed it so much we went again... More

We dropped in on Friday night and luckily got a table. Staff were so helpful and attentive, nothing was a problem and they anticipated our needs well - I like that! The food was very good, authentic Italian and reasonably priced. This is a restaurant we will certainly visit again, and I'll book ahead to ensure a table. Thank you... More

Plenty of choice - I had chicken liver in red wine for a starter and pork medallions as a main. The food was... More
