Went with a party of 16 for my wife's graduation, arranged in advance with Sonia the owner the table layout, they provided decorations and arranged a fabulous cake. All of our party raved about the food and the restaurant itself. We were there from 7.30 till closing and never once felt rushed. Thank you to Sonia and her team for... More

Even tho the staff were very nice, the food was appalling and the restaurant itself was ridiculously cramped. Hard to enjoy food when it's bland and tasteless and your constantly being hit in the back by other people in the restaurant. Won't be returning.

I ate a simple pizza Margherita and it was quite normal, nothing amazing. Nobody inside looks like Italian and the kitchen is simply lousy. The staff was courteous and the prize cheap however I think I won't go back.
