We visited this restaurant for the first time on Saturday night. Quality of the food was very good, service for us was a tad too quick, we prefer a longer break between courses, but we did not request this as we had no prior knowledge of how fast the kitchen works, will ask for a break between courses next time....

Compared to other Italian restaurants close to Birmingham City Centre, this restaurant was disappointing. The food was good but nothing special and the service was very poor.

This is my favourite Italian in Birmingham and I often rave about it to friends so you can imagine my disappointment at the awful service last Saturday night. The wrong order was either taken down or made and was thrust upon me not once but twice, both times I told them I didn't order that starter. They also charged for... More

I had a goats cheese starter and it was superb. My husband had garlic mushrooms and it was a very generous portion. Both mains were very good and overall it was... More

We had a really good meal at this restaurant. Four of us had starters and main courses and we could not fault anything.

Been here twice, menu has a decent variety and they serve above average italian food. The service has been very slow both times- 3 hours required for a visit. They apologised both times but there was no suggestion that this was particularly unusual.

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday on the off chance and so was pleasantly surprised to see it open!! My partner and I both had starters and main courses. Both were extremely tasty and well presented. The restaurant both inside and outside was beautiful and spotlessly clean. It is not a cheap place to eat, but it is definitely value... More
