Came here with a friend in December to try the lunch time menu which sounded like good value for money- 3 courses for £15. My work colleague recommended the place and I wish she hadn't. The restaurant itself is very stylish, elegant and sparking clean. It's a shame the food let the place down. A member of staff offered to... More

Food here is always great! You need to book as the restaurant gets very busy. They are always prepared to accommodate requests for special occasions and the staff always go the extra mile. If you like Italian food you will love this restaurant!

I had read a few mixed reviews from Tripadvisor and was reluctant to spend an evening here last year. All the food was amazing, portions were just right. Only thing i did not agree with was the lack of waiting on skills. Not asking if the food was ok, not engaging enough with customers, even standing around at times even... More

I had read a few mixed reviews from TripAdvisor and was a bit hesitant about this restaurant. We went on Tuesday night the food was great as was the service and the bill! Definitely could taste the authentic flavours of southern Italy.

Went as part of a group of 4 friends, reserved table at 8.15 but weren't seated until 8.50 but accepted that it was a busy Saturday night. We ordered our food promptly, and our focaccia arrived promptly. After we finished the starter, it took around 40 minutes for the mains to arrive. We tried to ask the waiter if everything... More

great food and surroundings and the staff were attentive and also passionate about their food and restaurant. Pizza on a open fire and great dessert choice. Definitely worth a visit.

We wanted to get a meal in before our theatre experince so we were there at around 6.00pm. We did not have a reservation and this was a Saturday but we were shown to a table straight away although the restaurant was busy. The restaurant is pleasant and there is a good ambience. Service was good and the staff friendly... More
