Great value and all the food was prepared fresh and very tasty. I had the steak which had a 5$ supplement and it's not your normal early bird thin steak, it was a nice thick sirloin with a good bit of eating. The Italian wine we ordered was very nice too. Staff were very friendly and good service.

Food at the Christmas lunch was ok but unfortunately there was fried calamari amongst my cod goujans, which is a big deal when you have a shellfish allergy. Highlighted it with the waiter who acknowledged it but wasn't overly... More

This place is always busy for a reason, they do great food at a great price. We were there recently and were running late for our reservation and they were so accommodating and helpful. The food is always good and I love the new premises
