What a rip off! £95 for two plates of pasta and 2 large glasses of wine. Charmless service and lacking in atmosphere.

I raised a dispute via paypal, and escalated it straight away ( believing the closed restaurant would not reply). Got the money refunded after a week. The overall owner seems to be Little Sicily, which is still operating and from which paypal can withdraw funds

I have paid £15 for a voucher. Been trying to get hold of this restaurant for a week now in order to book. NO answer. If you read this before deciding whether or not to pay for a voucher, DON'T. You will waste your money. Also no reply to my emails. I think they have closed. (Judging from the Tripadvisor... More

The chicken which was recommended, was microwaved and tough, with a side consisting of a slice of lettuce and tomatoe, said it... More

A disaster from the start. Waitress didn't understand the offers available and which one we had. Our starters arrived before our pre dinner drinks. We asked for them to be removed and when they were returned when we had finished our drinks the pasta dish had been kept warm and was beginning to dry out so had to ask for... More
