Just far enough out of the city centre away from the madding crowds, and good tasty Italian food. (But I think mobile phones should be banned in restaurants. I was fed up looking at diners sitting texting or whatever…Are they letting everyone know what their meal consists of, or what course is coming up next?!)

This has become a family favorite. Great fun for large groups or sometimes just the two of us. All the staff are great and the food always excellent including the takeaways. The steaks are so good that we have become very partial too them.

Went for a lunch with colleagues. Service was excellent and speedy. Food was great and the price was exceptionally good given the quality. So much better in terms of quality and price than the chain Italian restaurants! Definitely worth a visit and will go back.

No frills Italian restaurant. The service is good and the food is fantastic. The portion of lasagne is huge but too delicious to leave any. I would also recommend the bruschetta to start so tasty!

2nd time eating here for my Dads 60th. The food was excellent. I had the chicken breast with extra veg and a starter portion of pasta to start with. Totally stuffed at the end. Very nice, good value, will visit again.
