The food here is always great, the pizzas especially. But a recent trip where we were seated upstairs was a disappointment. We were sat between two noisy large groups, one of which thought it was OK to vape continuously. The waiting staff were utterly miserable- no smile, no eye contact and slow in responding to requests. A shame, as downstairs... More

Went here for the first time with family. The place was pretty packed given it was a Saturday night. We had a table booked but still had to wait for 10 minutes. Will advise booking in advance. The restaurant itself is a very quirky place with rustic decor making it very charming. Food arrived promptly. The portions are massive- their... More

We went here for Christmas Day lunch. Aside from the food being great, and a really good choice, we thought it was excellent value for money too. It was £34 per head for 3 courses, which for Christmas Day we thought was so cheap. For a change we both had steak for main course and it was delicious. It was... More

A Fantastic Night. More like going to a friends party than eating out at a restaurant. Bruno and Albie made everyone feel welcome and the staff greeted all like long lost friends. The set menu choices were superb and the food was cooked to perfection.

An absolutely fabulous night. The set menu choice was perfect and the atmosphere electric. The staff here are so friendly and welcoming, it was more like attending a party at friends house. I'd recommend the experience to every one.

I had not visited this restaurant for several years. I went with a group one evening. They had lost our booking but did manage to fit us in. Rather a squash but OK. However what I remember was the wonderful staff. They made the evening. This time nobody smiled and not particularly welcoming. The food was OK but nothing special.... More

The food is so well prepared, tasty and moreish. The funghi e spinaci gratina is so delicious, definitely ordering this the next time I visit and the sangria goes down a... More

Their pizza is so consistently excellent I have only ever had a taste of other dishes here. Thin crust, cooked perfectly so it doesn't flop (which needs two hands to eat a slice), a surprisingly large base with generous toppings, in a great atmosphere with competent staff, it's no wonder it is so many people's favourite. Did I mention its... More

Came here with a big pre booked party and the restaurant did not have the facilities to deal with us. They should not have accepted our booking if they did not have the space or employees to give all 30 of us a half decent service. We were uncomfortably jammed in a corner and there was no space between chairs,... More

I could easily say that the food was perfecto and thoroughly enjoyed it, house red wine went down quite nicely The only issue was on the service side and I think that was due to the fact that the place was packed Would definitely go again
