I went here a few weeks ago in a group of 10 not really knowing what to expect as it does not look much from the outside. We all had starters and mains. The starters were good, if a bit standard. I went for one of the spciy pizzas which was excellent. The service was friendly and efficient, and overall... More

There was around 20 of us at a hen do. I ordered pizza which was black on the bottom. We sent this back and got given another one which was bland tasteless and disgusting. None of the other girls were impressed with their meals and left a lot of it. We didnt have to pay for the pizza as we... More

Dear customer Thank you for your feedback Sorry but I don't think that all the things you've written are right and correct First of all for a party of 26 people as you were (not 20) we ask the pre-order for the food so in the kitchen they can organize everything and give to you the best service and don't...

Living in Old Town, the wife and myself frequent this place all the time, for birthdays, celebrations and the nights when we can't bothered to cook or the cupboards are empty. Very reasonably priced, excellent service and the food is superb. We often take friends and family here who also really love the place. Why eat at the chains when... More

Its quirky, but the food, service, price and atmosphere is excellent. Its a simplistic menu, very old school but you cannot knock the quality. It has a pretty good wine list as well. Always has specials on. Always has excellent service.

We were upstairs and everyone enjoyed the food,the atmosphere and service of the staff. I had a great get together with friends and family with good food in a great Italian... More

I have just visited this restaurant with business colleagues following some of the rave reviews on tripadvisor. The service was excellent and the choice of wines was very good but the menu is very Anglo Italian and harks back to the days when very few British travelled so didn't understand what good Italian food was. People travel much more now... More

Myself & my friend visited with a Groupon offer. I had never been before and was immediately impressed with the atmosphere & décor. It was like being on holiday! We were seated & shown what we could pick off the menu with our groupon. I chose the Bruschetta with mushrooms, it was lovely, and arrived in good time although it... More
