Great food in an interesting building. A quiet mid week evening meal. All good but service with a smile would have been nice. i have waitressed myself and know it can be hard work, but this was a slow night - if you hate your job, do something else

Found this place as a last minute for a group of 13 of us for lunch. It was my son's birthday and we were very well looked after from the moment we arrived. Parking is limited but they cleared their own spaces to allow us all the park outside the restaurant. The food was delicious and the restaurant itself was... More

Food was delicious and staff were great. Lovely atmosphere. Everything well presented. Bathroom stylish and clean. Been a few times and never disappointed. It's easy to forget this place exists because of its location so make sure you go :)

Lunch today with my daughter. Amazing - a true taste of Italy.The scallops for starter were perfection and the Cannelloni the best since leaving Italy. As for the dessert! The Panna Cotta was served with a phenominal basil and strawberry sauce. My daughter was rather naughty and bought me a Tiramisu to bring home. Pure decadence. Lovely waiter. Can't wait... More

Went for my birthday late last year. The food was FANTASTIC, the staff were friendly, and the menu... My stomach wasn't big enough to eat all I wanted to!. Very expensive. But worth every penny. Can't wait to try out the cookery school. High recommendations.
