This visit was a walk in on a Thursday night so the place wasn't particularly busy and as such the waiters were very attentive and polite ensuring we were happy throughout the meal. The menu was fairly varied and the food ok, however... More

Enjoyed a great meal here with colleagues. Great service and great food all at excellent value for money. There were only a handful of people in which meant the atmosphere was a bit dull. However, staff were friendly funny and efficient with lots of banter.

We always struggle to find a good authentic Italian Restaurant wherever we stay. I initially tried to book at table by email on a Saturday lunchtime. By late Sunday afternoon I hadn't received a reply confirming the reservation, so I called them up to book a table for 8.30pm that evening. I was told they don't take bookings and we... More

The steak was full of gristle, bland and thin which is why it came over cooked ( I had asked for medium) there... More
