We had dinner here. The restaurant was virtually empty but we were asked to wait while a table was cleared, and then seated next to the kitchen/toilet passageway. We were in a hurry so didn't bother to move. Service was slow but we didn't have to ask for a jug of water - it automically came with the drinks, together... More

We used to go pizza express in the highcross quite regular. But the last couple of times the service was poor and the restaurant was not clean. So we went here for a change great waitress and both my wife and I thought the pizzas were better than pizza express.

Had dinner here Wednesday night. Surprisingly impressed. Cannot fault the food - very flavoursome and good sized portions. Only negative was my whole chicken calzone only had three small pieces of chicken in it. I had the Fritto Misto (small) for starters. Full of flavour and texture. Would order it again. Chicken & spinach calzone for mains. Really creamy inside.... More

We ate out here with our two boys, 4 and 9 years old and we all enjoyed the food very much, it was tasty, plentiful and great value for money, kids ate every bit and the service was friendly and excellent. We will definitely visit again. Highly recommended.

This was my first visit to any of the restaurants in this chain and I was pleasantly surprised. The seafood's of a very high standard and delicious. It was presented very attractively. The service was quite good and when we told them we were a bit pressed for time they hurried things up for us. The panacotta with berries was... More

We went here as we had vouchers to use. I had pizza and my partner had a pasta dish. Food ok. Service ok. It is what it is from a chain restaurant. There's better places to get a pizza in my opinion.
