I read all the reviews before going here again as I hadn't been for several years. I was glad I ignored them as we had a great night. The food was fantastic and fresh, with plenty of it. The menu is traditional and not overpriced. The atmosphere was great which makes an evening out and something which other Italians in... More

Love this restaurant and visit regularly. Only time I've ever been disappointed is when they do a set menu on special occasions.

We were directed upstairs where we had to wait on the stairs for the tables to be pushed together. While we waited for 2 of... More

Excellent atmosphere, great food, great service. Too noisy so if planning a romantic outing better to avoid. Pizza special - 2 in 1 pizza is a lovely touch - looks appealing - not sure how practical it is to have a gigantic pizza served. I had fish which was delicious. Recommended for family days/evenings out and birthday celebrations - not... More

I went here with in a group of 4 on a weekend. The food was pretty standard Italian fare prepared well. Most waiting staff seemed jolly and accommodating from afar apart from the one in the tented annex area - which is where we were. In short, food was plonked down without so much as a smile; we never each... More

My other half is Southern Mediterranean and was very pleased! We then had small pizzas each which are your standard size... More

Went to have lunch with my husband and I was really disappointed. The service was poor, and the food not very good either. We asked for carbonara and gnochi e gorgonzola. The carbonara was blend and watery, and the gnochi wouldn't feed a normal person and the gorgonzola was more like a very strong soup, really difficult to eat. All... More

I visited here at the weekend with the recommendation of friends. There was 6 of us in total and booked very last minute. They were really accommodating and we received great service despite being very busy and a large table. The food was excellent. Great starters and amazing pizzas. A really great atmosphere and such a nice change from dining... More
