I have been here a couple of time. The nice and welcoming atmosphere make me back a couple of time. The customer service is the top you can expect. I am particularly happy with Chiara and Pasquale always attentive to customer expectations. The food is an Italian based modified to British taste. I believe it's better then Jamie's the Italian....

Just had a really nice meal and desert. Staff had great bubbly personalities. Fabulous. We had Calzone, which I hadn't had before and it was very tasty. Desert was really nice (enjoyed every minute of the "Godfather Banana Sundae). Would definitely go again.

I've been here a few times, service has been hit and miss at times though, but was very happy to find out that they do gluten free pasta now.

We decided to eat here as a pre-theatre meal. Had eaten here many times before but on this occasion were really disappointed. My starter was tasteless, think it was supposed to have a lemon dressing but all I could taste was olive oil - no hint of lemon at all, My main course of meatballs wasn't much better - while... More

Very nice food, good service, nice atomophere. Restaraunt is a bit small so can feel a bit claustrophobic when it's full, so would preferably go to the Red Lion street branch. Staff were very happy to help though so would go there again.

The service was okay but the food seemed to take a while to get there. when it arrived though, everything tasted good and was nice and hot. Overall,... More
