We booked this for our son's graduation celebration lunch, together with another family. We arrived a little late for what was anyway to be a late lunch and I alerted the staff that the others would be yet a bit later, re which they were friendly and had no problem. The food is decent Italian restaurant food - I was... More

We popped in here as our usual choice of Italina restuarant in the JQ was fully booked. We were told this restaurant was the sister of and therefore assumed the menu and quality of food would be similar. Unfortunately this was not the case and we were very disappointed. The atmoshere was nice and had a good buzz but the... More

Opted for a business lunch in this city centre but secluded restaurant - atmosphere and décor are tastily done but our food was far to match this. Antipasti were good and well presented. Unfortunately, Cannelloni seemed microwaved with poor presentation as well as taste. Cannot recall what my colleague had for main but as per his comments he wasn't impressed... More

We recently visited for a pre-theatre dinner and made use of our 241 (on mains) offer to get ourselves suitably fed. I opted for the veal with Parma ham, whilst my partner had the Beef fillet medallions; both of which were very nice indeed. If I had to fault anything it'd be that the veal wasn't very tender, slightly over... More

I can't give this restaurant enough praise. Everytime I go it's always a fantastic service with equally fantastic food. Complimentary bread and olives on arrival and the mains are always superb. Tend to save this place for special occasions so it doesn't lose it's special appeal but it really is great value for what you're getting and can't rate it... More

We decided to try this restaurant on a Monday evening as we live over the road, it seems very nice and appealing with many positive reviews. We were greeted and sat down, ordered our drinks and waited to be served. We ordered a garlic bread to start, this was really average, the dough was soggy and it wasn't really garlic-y.... More

What an absolute delight, excellent food, service and surroundings. The quality of the surroundings, fixtures and fittings is obvious the minute you walk in the door, simple yet effective. The menu is extensive and offers something for everyone, the steak is very good. We over indulged by having pasta as a second course prior to the main dishes and it... More
