Minestrone soup was worst I have ever tasted in an Italian restaurant, full of potatoes and pasta, very little fresh veg and a very poor... More

We visited as a family on a Saturday evening and could only get booked for 6pm as it was so busy. However, despite it being busy, the service was relaxed and very attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed sharing the gran antipasto and our main courses included steak, pizzas and the sea bass, all very well prepared and delicious. We really enjoyed... More

Steaks are £20+ Felt a little bit guilty but ordered their special fillet that came with grilled vegetables. I must admit, it was magnificent. It was not an everyday meal but for a... More
