Lovely

Visited tonight we had mussels in a tomato chilli sauce and pork slides for starters followed by chicken pizza and hot and spicy pizza, onion rings and chips. All food and service was great, we would recommend and return

We decided to call in after a trip to the cinema. When we arrived we were asked if we had a reservation, we said no and the waiter turned his back and walked away. It was not busy at the time. So we turned our backs and went to Marios were we were warmly greeted. Sadly can't comment on the... More

Went to Mamma Mia's for the first time in years. The food was really nice and the staff were attentive. My only complaint was the table next to us was too close and the staff struggled to get by as did we when we left

Usually I am not too keen on Italian restaurants as I am not a mega fan of cheese (collective gasp) but after going along with some friends last Saturday for a bit of a birthday bash for one of my bessies and had a fantastic time!. Ordered a steak diane with chunky chips and must say the sauce was delicious... More

Nice selection on the menu but the food was fairly poor. The service wasn't great, they needed reminding of one of our drinks three times. The starters (various sharing platters) were ok but the main courses were distinctly lacking quality, it was all very amateur cooking. My meal (pork belly) even had a couple of strings of someone else's spaghetti... More

The sheer joy of being able to eat in a restaurant and not feel like you are the odd one out with a whole vegan menu and more than one choice. I had the Italian pizza with vegan cheese on it, no complaints at all. My Mam had the vegan pasta Genovese though she isn't vegan, said it was nice... More

We bought a deal off living social. We managed to get booked in for the day we wanted. The choice of good was great. We all had starters and main courses and there wasn't a clear plate in sight. Very nice and will be visiting again

Went with a few friends this week. VERY VERY COLD RESTAURANT! They need to get the heating sorted. The food was cold, tasteless and the drinks were flat. The waiting staff was great but you can't make up for it with terrible food and environment. We have been to Mario and Puccini before and thought we'd give this one a... More
