Not bad

We ate from the set menu which was well priced. The food was nice, but there was absolutely no time left between finishing our starters and our main arriving. It felt like we were in the middle of a timed eating competition... Regarding the staff, our waiter was very friendly but not so much the... read more

Came here to meet up with a couple of friends and had a three course meal. The food was lovely and all delivered at good times. However, our waiter seemed very disinterested in our table and didn't even bother to smile and just seemed awkward. When our pudding was taken away, he asked us if we wanted anything else, to...

We were extremely attentively looked after at this favourite of ours. Most attentive service for our family get-together group of seven, delicious menu choices and pretty good value wine. The platter starters, the lasagna, steaks and sea bass all highlights, plus a star Sicilian red wine.

Have visited this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed it. They have a nice menu suitable for nice informal evenings. The wine list has some good quality wines. Friendly staff help make visits even better!

Good friendly and helpful staff, we enjoyed a Lobster Spaghetti dish and cured beef for first course. Fresh good flavour and a reasonable amount of Lobster in the dish with a consistent level and standard of freshly prepared and tasty Italian food. We mentioned we were both on a diet and the waiter offered to serve the first course with... More

This is an attractive looking, spacious cafe/restaurant. We had an enjoyable two course lunch from the set menu - fresh, tasty food and a pleasant glass of wine. What let the experience down was the service. My husband nearly backed out when we were greeted by a front of house/waiter with a full beard - why is this acceptable when... More

My daughter and I visited this restaurant at 3pm on a Wednesday for tea/coffee and cake. There was no front of house member of staff and we were advised by a member of staff cleaning tables to make our way into the restaurant where the menus were on the tables. The only menu on the table was the drinks menu.... More

3 of us had a set menu lunch, and 1 of us had food off the main menu. All food was delicious and well presented. Service was friendly and efficient, we did not feel rushed, and we're able to take our time (2.5 hours!) slightly expensive, but nice for a change.

Took the children to get a bite to eat for their tea after a long hot day in Norwich. They chose from the kids menu so they had Grissini & a drink to start then proceeded to have Cheese and ham melt, this was an absolute joke, they received two small pieces of what I would call French stick bread...

Poor service .. Pastries came before the drinks and had finished them when the coffees arrived... Greeted at the table with 'guys' not acceptable , not greeted at the door or taken to a table and was unsure if it was self service?
